100k raised! New colour unlocked
We did it! $100,000 raised! Time for a Froggy Green Pigzbe
First we hit our Kickstarter campaign target of $50,000 in less than 8 hours and we thought that was pretty pigging amazing!
Now, we’re even more delighted to say we passed our stretch target of $100,000 raised! That means that we can now unlock a brand new colour for your Pigzbe!
You might remember that we asked YOU what this new colour should be. From a choice of three options our community voted in big numbers for fabulous FROGGY GREEN as the next shade for Pigzbe, so that's what we’ll make!
If you already pledged and would like to update your pink Pigzbe to a green one, don’t worry. We’ll be sending out a survey at the end of the campaign to ask you for your choice.
Everyone who bought the sibling pack will be pleased to know that it is now possible to get two your Pigzbes in different colours, preventing any unnecessary sibling arguments (we have kid brothers and sisters too!).
Thank you, thank you for your amazing support!
