Update October 2018 – delivery time delays

Hi everyone,

here are the news about our planned timeline. First of all – we are very sorry about the delay. Second: it´s worth the waiting time! And last but not least - the Brexit issue caused production relocation - and we had some issues with the plastic production. We had slightly underestimated the effort to produce the huge amount of different plastic items. Each Peguino Brick is made of different parts and they need to assembled at the final stage. But each tiny bit needs a separate Plastic Injection Mould. And there is the magic: it is freaky difficult to build these moulds and we had a steep learning curve the last months. Right now we cooperate with an experienced team in Germany – they are working hard to keep the delays as short as possible. The good outcome is that the parts are much more stable and the plastic we use is much more robust and reliable as we expected! The time we have won because of the delays of plastic production was used to make the electronic better and also the software is more mature. But winning time also give us time to make nice tutorials and to settle things in the background. As it seems right now we have also localized versions in spain and german next year and some fancy new Peguino Bricks will be available next spring.

We might be able to deliver most of the Sets and Kits before christmas – so if you backed us for a xmas gift – let us know!

Best regards,

The Peguino Team

      Hi,

      I have it planned as a christmas present. I am also only visiting family in the uk for two weeks over christmas (specified delivery address) and if i miss that it will take me an extra year to get it, since i live in Africa.

      Would really appreciate it if you can get this to me for that.

      Thanks
