Happy Holidays from MonkeyLectric

Hey Kickstarter Backers,

Today we shipped the first backer rewards! This past month we've been incredibly busy preparing to manufacture our Mini Monkey Lights. Since we received funding we have been able to make new molds, ordered more parts, finalize our patterns and last week the Mini Monkey Lights went into production at our lab! Unfortunately that means there are only so many lights we can make at a time.  

Because our production capacity is still limited, there's a chance that some of you awesome folks may not receive your lights by the 24th of December. If you don't receive your lights in the next couple of days. You should receive the lights by the new year. We know this may be frustrating, and hope you understand! 

Additionally, all of the shinny labels to our packages were not delivered in time so some of the units will ship with the instructions printed here at our lab. We figured that you would rather get your Mini Monkey Light without the fancy packaging than no Monkey Light at all.

We apologize for the delay and wish you a happy holiday season.

Thank you for understanding.

dan & laurent

      I'm still waiting on mine as well

    4. Creator Elisa Schaeffer on January 5, 2012

      I haven't gotten anything yet either :( Are you sending out mails with tracking numbers or something or will the packet just show up one day?

    5. Creator Seasha McKay on January 3, 2012

      can you please let us know when we will be receiving our lights - ours were for a christmas present and i'd really like to be able to deliver. thanks for looking into this for me.

      Got mine, thank you!
      The instructions don't show/say when the little rubber squares were supposed to be used (unless you look really carefully at the picture), so we accidentally left them off, then had to cut the zip ties and redo to get them in there. Maybe mention the rubber things and where they go in the text if you redo the package. We used mini zipties (not included in package) to attach the wire up the spoke. The big ones don't grip tight enough, maybe include some little ones for people. I second the request for instructions for setting the design too. Happy Holidays everyone!

      Got mine and just installed it on my daughter's bike for Xmas. She's psyched. Question: the instructions aren't so clear on which theme's are included and their corresponding number values. Could you guys please post? Right now it's by trial and error.

      As with Sal, will the receipt of a tracking number be the indication that our specific "rewards" have been shipped out? Or will only some receive trackable shipping service?

      Thank you!
