About

 

 

 

                
 

 

 

 

 

 

     

Inspired by the ancient Japanese philosophy of “Okiagari” which means to get up and arise. Eggy was designed with a minimalistic feel and an added dose of cuteness. The toy is a symbol of resilience. With this, we have found the perfect balance between art, toy, and engagement.

 

 

Eggy is designed with its’ own unique shape and signature features.

 

Test your creativity and design an Eggy that is uniquely yours with our D.I.Y Edition Eggy!

 

A designer toy made affordable and fun to play for all ages. Improved in every aspect in design, Eggy is created with the most optimal design without compromising the quality.

Our designers spent countless hours designing and creating each Eggy character. We incorporated a relatable approach towards designer toys by giving each Eggy their very own unique personality.

 

How does it work?

Eggy’s inbuilt weight acts as a center of gravity. When Eggy wobbles, the center of mass will always be on the other side of the pivot point, and the gravity will return it to upright position.

 

 

In a digital world, real interaction matters. Rekindle the emotions of your childhood toys with Eggy and share the memory with your loved ones.

 

Eggy is more than just a display piece, it’s self-righting feature allows collectors to not only admire but also engage with the toy, stimulating your creativity.

 

 

 

 

Experience the sensations of art and technology with our gravity-defying, magical levitating platform.

With the inbuilt magnetic base in Eggy, it gives Eggy a seamless outlook and allows it to float on the customized levitation platform.

 

Combining nature and modern design, the interchangeable top lid is made from imitation oak and high gloss artificial white marble.

 

How to levitate your EGGY?

After inserting the magnetic weight in Eggy, gently hover Eggy over the center of the levitation platform. Using your fingers as support between Eggy and the platform, you will start to feel an upward resistance once it’s in the center. The 4 LEDs at the corners will light up when Eggy is positioned exactly at the center of the base. When you feel a gentle release, slowly let go of Eggy and it will start to levitate!

 

 

  

Eggy is the perfect gift for any occasion! You can hide secret notes/trinkets within Eggy as a, added surprise too

 

 


 

We ship to anywhere in the world, to your door step! To be fair to all backers, we’ve adjusted the shipping price according to various countries and regions. Free shipping will be provided to Singapore backers. Help us share Eggy with your friends and get them to back us too! Support us to reach our targeted quantity and we might be able to negotiate for cheaper shipping for your region!

 

Minnimi is a product design company based in Singapore. Made up of a group of toy lovers, product designer, and mechanical engineers.

Who are we? 

We want to bring a level of engagement and satisfaction through the toys that we design. With toy collectors at the heart and mind of our creation process, we have created a toy with a distinct style that we are proud to call our own and we know collectors would love.  
After years of collecting figurines and designer toys, we realized that these toys lacked an element of interaction, and wanted something more than just a display. Hence, EGGY was born!


 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Accountability

In our opinion, ACCOUNTABILITY is something any crowdfunding campaign should prioritize. We’ve listed few of our primary concerns, as to ensure backers and a goal for team EGGY to achieve. Factors: product design // manufacturing // logistics // cost // time

1. Product & Design

Weight distribution technology is our ACE As backers ourselves, we wouldn’t wish to back something that will be available in the market even before we receive it. We want to OWN IT, first hand. We are confident in our WDT, this is something which we won’t be disclosed in this campaign, and is extremely hard even for counterfeits. During the R&D / prototyping phase, we’ve realized the weight distributions of the each EGGY varies across designs, due to the unique features of the designs.

WE have gone through extensive calculations to ensure the counter-weight compliments the overall weight of the design perfectly to achieve the desirable movement speed for each individual EGGY. The FEEL, is our ACE. ^^v

2. Manufacturing & Logistics

Highest product quality and On-time shipment are our priority Any new projects will be faced with certain risks associated with manufacturing and supply chain logistic. EGGY is the first product launched by minnimi. Therefore, we’ve spent quite a considerable time searching for the right manufacturer, places for quality checking and assembling of EGGY. Ensuring the quality, cost and time meets our demands. Backers will only receive the highest quality EGGY in which requires injection molding process. In this campaign, we’ve only featured our part-machine, part-manually made prototype. Therefore, rest assured of what you will be receiving at your doorstep will be of the highest quality EGGY. Logistics Tracking are implemented to all parcels, as we are very concerned about the pledge reaching to your doorstep. This may cost you a few dollars extra, but we believed this ensured all backers a form of insurance. If we’ve found any issues during shipment in the tracking, we will send you a new piece immediately to ensure efficiency. Depending on the response and the workload, we will source the appropriate manpower to fulfill this campaign and journey as a team.

*Manpower is not an issue for team EGGY ^^v

3. Cost

During our research, miscalculating cost is one of the main factors that lead to a failure to deliver even for campaigns that are successfully funded. We’ve factored in most of the cost to not make a loss. To be honest, we don’t earn as much from what we priced EGGY, what we are aiming for is the experience of bringing EGGY to the market, successfully completed a crowdfunding journey and understanding backers. If the responses are well, we will make the packaging even greater, that’s a promise! ^^v

4. Time

EGGY is a prototype that is ready to be manufactured, or maybe some tweaks to make EGGY better during the campaign. Our goal is to be able to fulfill pledges within 6-8 weeks, after confirmation of orders phase. But do note that forecasting demand is an inexact science, pertaining to any delays that might occurred, we promised to work around the clock to resolve any issues and communicate with our backers.

Miscellaneous

We welcome Artists from any part of the world for EGGY’s design collaborations. In a form of, Limited Edition. limiting to 1000 pcs per design. As such, Limited Ed. EGGY might have a slightly later delivery date.

All in all, communication is always our priority. Our team is fully committed in bringing EGGY to you and we need your support to make EGGY a reality. ^^v
