The Popcorn Ball **KICKSTARTER STAFF PICK** (Canceled)
The most fun and convenient way to mix popcorn anywhere, anytime! Eating popcorn at home, movies, ball games, will never be the same.
**ATTENTION KICKSTARTER COMMUNITY**
We are in the process of re-launching the PopcornBall Kickstarter with a new lower funding goal of only $25,000! You can still make a pledge now, even if it's just a $1, to get all the updates. The re-launch is pending approval from the Kickstarter managers. With this new lower goal we should make our goal so jump on board now to take advantage of the new offers. There will be new rewards and the first 1000 backers get 6 packets of Free Seasonings.
Welcome to the PopcornBall Kickstarter page. If you are not familiar with how Kickstarter works, it is an "all or nothing" fundraising campaign. If the pledges do NOT exceed the funding goal, you will NOT be charged. If the goal is reached you will be charged when the campaign ends.
My name is Mike Baxter and I am the inventor of the PopcornBall. The PopcornBall idea originated when I was rolling a ball with my daughter (see "gift for kids" photo below) when she was just 18 months old. In order to make the PopcornBall a real product we need your donations and your help sharing our Kickstarter with your friends and family. I appreciate you looking at my Kickstarter and my family and I greatly thank YOU for your donations!
- Join the PopcornBall Club. See details at bottom of page.
- The PopcornBall is a 7.5inch sphere container for mixing
- It can hold up to 120oz or 15 cups of popcorn, a little less if used for mixing purposes. A typical bag of microwave popcorn is 10 cups. Most small movie popcorns are between 6 to 11 cups.
- Why do we need $50,000? The money will go towards the expensive plastic injection mold tooling for manufacturing.
- UPDATE: The digital 4x6 Christmas card that comes with every reward level can be used as a $5 off coupon on our website when that launches after the Kickstarter. Valid one coupon per Backer. It will never expire. So, if it's a dollar or $100 you get the Christmas card.

The PopcornBall will eventually be more that just a red ball. We are currently working on sport designs, such as, baseball, basketball, soccer ball and golf ball. Also, in the future we plan on having officially licensed designs from major film studios such as MARVEL, LUCAS FILMS, and DISNEY. We also hope to partner with charities such as Wounded Warriors, Susan G. Komen, etc.

In Partnership With
Risks and challenges
The PopcornBall has been in development for the past two years. The original concept was conceived back in December of 2010. Four years ago we took a risk on pursuing a new product in competitive market, kitchen gadgets. Trust me when I say that we have had our challenges along the way but, our persistence and determination, as well as, our strong belief that the PopcornBall is a great product has overcome all the challenges. There will be more challenges along the way and we will overcome them too, because we are prepared. Over the past two years we have developed relationships with key people that are experienced in product management. We have manufactures that can produce our product. We know that the product can be made cost effectively so that you can get your own quality Popcornball at an affordable price. All we need is your support. So please donate today and click the share button. Thank you! The PopcornBallLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
