About this project
Imagine a world where little girls have a place to house their favorite large dolls and doll clothing and accessories… Where moms can finally keep the playroom tidy by having a place to store all those beautiful, expensive doll items she bought her little girl... And where dads and daughters can bond while building a beautiful home (don't worry, the instructions are easy!). We imagined that world and we are excited to bring you My Girl's Dollhouse - The world's first ever home For Your 18-inch Doll!
WHERE DID WE GET THIS IDEA?
We are a brand new toy company led by seasoned veterans who are passionate about toys and want to make a better world of play. When one of our beloved employees, Pam, and her daughter Chloe, came up with the idea to house their American Girl dolls, we were intrigued. However, the concept of developing a 6 foot tall dollhouse seemed daunting. So, we searched the internet and found literally hundreds of do it yourself houses. Kids with the help of mom and dad are converting everything from IKEA furniture, old television stands, and even full closets into homes for their large dolls. Chloe (below with her mom) represents the millions of American Girl and other 18'' large doll fans. They all have dolls, clothes, accessories and furniture, but no where to put any of it! We thought, why not make a beautiful house that can serve as a backdrop to girls' creative minds and offer parents a storage solution to keep their house clean.
We've researched websites, message boards, and social media to come up with the best possible design for the doll community. At 6 feet tall, 5 feet wide, with 4 main rooms, and a 5th that can be used as an attic space, living room or closet, we've created a huge, functional dollhouse that is truly perfect for girls and collectors alike. The durable frame of the house is constructed of 100% real pine wood!
We currently have 4 dollhouse options, including 2 beautiful exteriors and 2 different interiors. We've lovingly named them "Country French," "Sweet Bungalow," "Cape Cod," and "Colonial Cottage."
The Country French and Cape Cod homes have a classic grey exterior with white trim and red door.
The Sweet Bungalow and Colonial Cottage homes have a pink and yellow exterior with sweet floral details.
For each exterior there are 2 interior options. The Country French and Sweet Bungalow homes have a purple bedroom and pink ballet room upstairs, with 2 pink rooms downstairs.
The Cape Cod and Colonial Cottage homes have all soft yellow interiors.
All of the floors throughout are a medium brown with wood grain design. The attic space boasts a functional closet rod to hang all your delicate doll clothes. The entire house is designed for long-lasting, creative fun!
The cost – We have focused on balancing high quality and affordability. While $250-$300 is not pocket money, it is roughly the cost of one American Girl doll and a nice accessory item (like a bed). But, look what you get! A durable, beautiful home for your girl's coveted and expensive doll.
What more could you ask for? Well...
WHY WE NEED YOU!
It's a big house and a big undertaking and we need your help! We've been moving fast to create these initial 4 designs, but are seeking to make enough houses available for the holiday season. Currently we are able to make the initial minimum in that time frame. However, we know that's not enough. Our goal is to make 3x as many available to produce at the end of our Kickstarter campaign in October. Your contributions towards our $45,000 goal will help us achieve that production volume in this very short time frame. We are very happy to reward you with some unique incentives for your help!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE...
We have big dreams for our big house! Not only do we want to meet this season's demand, which we will do if we meet our funding goal, we also want to take it to the next level and offer even more designs, create customization options such as custom graphics, and even offer new house frame styles. If we are able to meet our initial goal of $45,000 we will then plan to make these other options available for our 2014 line. So your initial contribution will really help create a lasting brand for the long run that eventually will give us the ability to create more options!
We are grateful for your support in our venture to house as many 18-inch dolls as possible this season and create a lasting item for the future!
A BIT MORE ABOUT WICKED COOL TOYS
Wicked Cool Toys was founded in the summer of 2012 by toy industry veteran Michael Rinzler. Michael has since partnered with toy executive Jeremy Padawer and manufacturing specialist Thomas Poon. The company recently created Goodtoy, a division that focuses on high-quality materials. My Girl's Dollhouse is the first of many new products under this Goodtoy branding.
Risks and challenges
Wicked Cool Toys is a young company already functioning and actively growing. We are comprised of toy experts in marketing, sales, design, engineering, quality control, safety, and manufacturing. We have the knowledge and resources to create great product and deliver on time.
We have released several items under our Wicked Cool label to top retailers.
Kickstarter is a product release for our first item under the Goodtoy brand. We've already tested and proven our Dollhouse designs, production, safety, and distribution processes, and do not anticipate any reasons for delay. Our supplier was chosen with careful consideration and upholds the highest in product quality and standards. We have already begun the process of making the initial minimum of houses, so our Kickstarter funds will serve to continue and expand that process.
We will be able to get the initial dollhouses out in time for the holiday season and if our Kickstarter is funded we will be able to meet the additional volume in time as well. We’ve already built time into our delivery schedule to account for any unexpected mishaps or delays.
You are funding a 'for sure' project and supporting a small toy company with awesome people who want to make great product available.
-Within the U.S. shipping is included in your chosen reward level.
-We do not ship the rewards outside the U.S., unfortunately...it's a big house!
