About

Sorry to say that we did not make our Kickstarter goal.
But there is good news, we will be back.

We are going to take some time to re-evaluate and restrategize so as to plan for a successful Kickstarter the next go around.

Thank you to everyone for your support and words of encouragement. I hope to see you soon.

In Gratitude,
Nina

Perfect Reject® – Tattered, torn and loved
Imperfect means I’m perfect/you’re perfect – just the way we are.
Celebrate difference as a source of joy, strength, magic and empowerment.

A few of years ago, I created my first Perfect Reject®out of a discarded plush animal I found on the side of the road. 
I wanted to express that there can be value in something, even if it's been abandoned, and even if it's not quite perfect.
The piece resonated and I received many offers to buy him, and before long I had requests to build new creations. With people asking me left and right for their own Perfect Reject®, I began offering hand-made, limited edition Perfect Reject®that have been sold at museums and art shows all over Los Angeles.
Because of all your many requests to make an affordable Perfect Reject®I decided to make it happen. It took many months of hard work, and sweat but I now feel that I have a product that I can stand behind and say that I truly LOVE.

Wonder the Wolf, carries with him the symbol of vulnerability, compassion and courage and is a "PERFECT REJECT".
One of my major concerns while designing Wonder Wolf was to keep the unique and artistic signature that the one-of-a kind originals had. I did not want to create just another plush toy. Because of this, the cost is higher than your average plush toy.

For those of you who asked, yes I still will be making my original one-of-a kind Perfect Rejects®, available on my website and at MOCA.


This production run of Wonder the Wolf is the first and is exclusive to Kickstarter. It will have a unique label distinguishing it from all future Wonders, thus making it a collector's edition.

We are endlessly thankful to all the wonderfully talented folks for lending their amazing skill to our Kickstarter! I can not thank them enough nor list them all here.

THE YEAR OF THE WOLF

Perfect Reject® is proudly partnered with W.O.L.F. 

To help celebrate their 20th anniversary Perfect Reject® is partnering with W.O.L.F. Sanctuary, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for captive bred wolves & wolf dogs through rescue, sanctuary and education.  2015 is also the 20th anniversary of the reintroduction of wolves to Yellowstone National Park. What better way to celebrate than with Wonder Wolf.  W.O.L.F. has outgrown their existing facility and must move to a new location due to the High Park Fire damage in 2012 and 6 subsequent floods since then. Want to help?

Perfect Reject® gives 10% of profits from their Wonder the Wolf plush.  

I have gotten requests to ship outside the US.
I will ship outside the US. After the Kickstarter you can pay me the shipping charges. I will use the USPS, e.g. to ship to the UK it will be $44.00
BTW duties and tariffs will be your responsible.

Risks and challenges

We are working with a plush toy manufacturer that has over 20 years experience and understands the process of creating and manufacturing plush toys from start to finish. However, there is always the possibility of unforeseeable delays. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including ship dates and product changes. Our goal is to keep you updated throughout the process. The estimate arrival is 60 to 90 days after the funds have been collected from kickstarter.
