Dear Playpressers,

We hope you're enjoying our second Kickstarter weekend! Since our last update we've had lots of new backers who we'd like to welcome to team Playpress – thanks for your support!

In the news

In the last few days many more people are becoming as excited as you about the Playpress vision thanks to some press and bloggers. Here are a few highlights:

After an interview with our Chief Play Maker, Matthew Wright, the London Evening Standard wrote about Playpress and our Kickstarter campaign. In the interview Matthew revealed more about the Playpress vision and how London was a huge source of inspiration for our play sets.
