Hi delightful backers,

Happy New Year! Here's to a wonderful 2016 for all of you! 

 To celebrate the New Year, we've introduced a new mode on Ninchanese, one that was part of the Nincha Kickstarter Roadmap you pledged for: listening stages!

You can now finally train your listening comprehension on Ninchanese, and from what our users are telling us, it's a lot of fun. Not only do these new stages allow you to train your ear to understanding Chinese, it also allows you to learn/practice writing in Chinese characters. It's a must-know skill if you plan on using Chinese in your everyday life. It's also rather thrilling to discover you can actually write in Chinese. Give it a try!

We also have a few things to show you. That's right, we've received the first samples of the goodies! Unpacking the box was very exciting!

We're quite happy with the quality of what we've received; everything looks well-made and sturdy so you'll be able to enjoy your NIncha goodies for a good long while. 

The bag and the mugs have turned out top notch, as you can see below:

But. Some of the samples, however, still need a little work. That's what samples are for, right? To see what they look like and correct them. 

The plush toy, for example, is already quite cuddly, but it doesn't quite look adorable like our Nincha yet, so we're getting another sample made before we okay production.

Here's what the plush toy looks like right now: 

And our corrections so it looks even cuter. 

Left: the current plush | Right: how we want the Nincha plush to look. Almost there!

We're doing our best timing-wise, but let's be level with you: we'd much rather have a beautiful plush to send you guys, even if it takes a little longer than expected, than to settle for a so-so plush. 

Tell us, what do you think of these goodies? Are you excited to be getting them soon? 

Lotsa love and sunshine in this cold cold January month, 

-- Sarah and the Nincha Team
