 The Dreggons are little dragons from a magical world called Draconia! I've always loved dragons and fantasy. With the help of the talented artists Sophie Scruggs and Mamath, I was able to create some fun, new characters! Each plush is super cuddly and made from high quality materials! 

 Meet The Dreggons! 

I'm starting off by unlocking the Death Rattle! As we reach the stretch goals, more Dreggons and goodies will be unlocked. You can choose any of the unlocked plush as your reward!

If the campaign is successful, I'll be sending out a reward survey at the end and you can let me know which plush you want!

By backing the Dreggons on Kickstarter, you can get them for the special price of $35! After the campaign is over the Dreggons will retail on my website for $40-$45.

The Death Rattle is very unique! It has a plastic armature inside its tail so it can bend and pose! The eyes and horn details are machine embroidered while the skull details are appliqued. The sheer wings are representative of the green aura it emits! 

  • High quality minky fabric
  • Beautiful embroidered eyes and horns
  • Sheer organza aura wings
  • Plastic, poseable armature inside tail

Sundancer was my first Dreggon! It has both machine embroidered and appliqued details, plus hand sculpted paws! The wings are made from a holographic knit spandex fabric with foam interfacing sewn inside. They're also poseable! 

  • High quality minky fabric
  • Beautiful, sparkling wings
  • Embroidered eyes, wings, and paw pads
  • Bendable wings

The Pibble's wings can be posed in the open or closed position! It has many embroidered details, such as its eyes and belly stripes. The paw pads on the bottom of its feet are appliqued and are super soft!  

  • High quality minky fabric
  • Embroidered eyes
  • Soft appliqued paw pads
  • Bendable wings

The Forest Guardian is incredibly detailed! It has lots of embroidered features such as its wings and horns! The dark green fabric is super fluffy and represents the moss that covers its back. It's so cuddly! 

  • High quality minky fabric
  • Longer pile, fluffy minky fabric to represent moss
  • Unique facial expression
  • Highly detailed embroiders horns, wings, eyes, and tail leaf
  • Bendable wings
  • Printed minky mushrooms

 Visual Novel

The Dreggons have a special surprise in store - a brand new visual novel! Levels will unlock if we surpass each plush's goal. Each level will feature a quest specific to each Dreggon species. You can learn more about the Dreggons and Draconia in the visual novel! Did I mention that the levels will be free to play for everyone? Yep, that's right! Once the levels are finished, you get access to them for FREE!

Here's a sneak peek of the visual novel!

 Why Kickstarter? 

 Kickstarter will help the Dreggons reach a broader audience! The manufacturing costs of quality plush toys is very expensive, and it's often a struggle for small businesses to self fund on their own. By using Kickstarter I can gauge the interest for my products and bring attention to a potential new IP (intellectual property)! 

Biographies

Each Dreggon has its own unique personality! Which one is your favorite?

Stretch Goals

                                     The Death Rattle's level will unlock in the visual novel!

                                   The Sundancer's level will unlock in the visual novel!

                            At $14,000 the Pibble and Forest Guardian plushes will unlock!

At $22,000 a brand new, never before seen Dreggon will unlock! It lives on a far away island in the middle of the ocean. It's super secret and very rare so it doesn't want to be seen yet, but here's a hint!

 Backer Rewards

*Want more than four Dreggons? Just add an additional $35 for each plush to your pledge!

Add-On Shop

 I'm also offering some unique Dreggon merchandise! Feel free to have a look around!

Instructions: Simply increase your pledge amount by the total price of add-ons you want and then save!

After the campaign I'll send you a survey that will ask you what items you'd like to use your additional pledge money for. 

More items can be added to the Add-On Shop depending on how the campaign progresses!

Budget Breakdown

Here's a breakdown of what the money will be used for!

  • The 'Production' costs include the manufacturing price for each Dreggon plush along with ocean freight shipping, customs clearance, and safety  testing. 
  • The 'Shipping' is the cost of getting your chosen rewards from PlanetPlush to your doorstep. The price also includes any packing  materials that will be used to protect your rewards.
  • The 'Rewards' includes the costs of getting reward items other than plush manufactured.
  • The 'Fees' is a certain percentage that Kickstarter will take from our funds if our goal is met. This includes Kickstarter's fees as well  as transaction processing fees. 

Shipping (Domestic & International)

If fully funded, the Dreggons will set sail across the sea! The plushes will travel by ocean freight from the manufacturer to PlanetPlush. Once I have the plush in hand, I'll package them up and  send them to my backers along with any other chosen rewards!

All domestic (within the United States) orders will be shipped in a  box via USPS Priority Mail and normally takes 2 - 3 days to arrive after shipping.

International orders (outside of the United States) will ship via USPS First Class mail. First Class mail can take anywhere between 2 - 6 weeks to arrive. It's possible that it may take longer depending on your country's customs process. I strongly urge my international backers to be aware of any potential customs fees or taxes their country may apply. 

Timeline

 If I meet my goal, Kickstarter will hold the funds for 14 days.  After it's processed and released I'll pay my manufacturer to produce the Dreggons. Here's what the timeline looks like! 

  • 10 - 12 weeks for production
     
  • Approximately 30 days to arrive to PlanetPlush via ocean freight
     
  • 2 weeks to ship to backers!

Risks and challenges

I'm experienced with having goods made overseas. My manufacturer has produced plush for me before and I'm comfortable working with them. The Dreggons are ready to go into production once funded.

It is possible that the factory may have delays. This could be due to the need to order more materials, holidays, inclement weather, or another unforeseen event. I have great communication with my factory and if a situation arises, I'll be sure to find a solution to the issue and let my backers know of any delays.

I also have experienced, on hand customs brokerage. If for any reason the Dreggons are selected by customs for inspection, my broker will be available to help ease this process. If this happens, customs will have my full cooperation and I'll disclose any issues or possible delays with my backers.
