About

Fruits Basket Inspired Enamel Pins

$3,790

72

This project is to fund a set of thirteen enamel pins featuring the animals of the Chinese Zodiac plus the cat. Its creation was inspired by the upcoming reboot of the popular anime series Fruits Basket. 

We have decided to forego stretch goals and instead try to fund all the pins at once, we believe this series needs to be created with the full set available.

The pins will be hard enamel with gold plating, each animal is holding a glitter onigiri with the animal's name in Chinese characters. 

All pins with the exception of the dragon, horse, rooster and dog will be 1.25in. at they're largest points. The horse, rooster and dog will be 1.5in, and the dragon 1.75in due to their ears and tails.

Additionally, if we reach our stretch goal of $2300, the rat, tiger, rabbit, snake, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and cat will have screen printed blushies. 

At $2450, the Ume Onigiri design will be unlocked

At $2600, the Seahorse Variant design will be unlocked

After the Kickstarter ends, we will receive any funds two weeks later, and the manufacturing will take an additional three weeks. The pins will be graded and packaged when received, and all rewards will be mailed out in late May.

Risks and challenges

These designs have already been approved for production with a manufacturer, so production will start as soon as we have the funds available. Due to the nature of these hand made items, there is the possibility that there will be flaws in the pins; if this is the case there will be a delay in distribution as we work with the manufacturer to correct everything.
If the number of flawed pins is low enough, 10% or less of the total order, distribution will begin immediately.
Please remember that due to your monitor's settings the final colours may be slightly different in person.
Enamel pins are made of metal, so if you are sensitive to certain metals please be aware and handle or place pins accordingly. The pins will also have small rubber clutches and sharp posts that may not be suitable for children under the age of 12
