About this project
Hello! My wife and I came up with an awesome product. With your help, we can create a new cookie dunking experience for everyone. We have created the dipr, a spoon that is designed to hold sandwich cookies while you dunk them in milk or any other liquid that you like.
I came up with the idea for the dipr one evening while I was dunking my Oreo cookies in milk and I dropped the cookie into the milk. I turned to my wife and said “That’s it.. I’m fed up. I can’t take this anymore!” and I set out to build a special utensil that prevents the cookie from being dropped. After a few months of sculpting, sanding, molding and casting different variations – the dipr was born. Since the prototype worked so well, my wife and I decided to file for a patent and hired a lawyer to help with the whole process. We drafted all the documents for the application and several weeks later we filed the paperwork and received the “patent pending” status.
So why are we here? Well because manufacturing is very expensive and we don't have the funds to proceed. We absolutely love eating Oreo cookies and we know a lot of you probably do too, this is why we believe in the dipr so much.
With your help we can take this product to market and hopefully get it put in cookie isle's nationwide. We have the opportunity to showcase the dipr at a housewares show in the spring of 2011 - so we would like to have sample units ready that we can give to potential distributors and press.
Once we are funded, we will begin manufacturing the units in bulk so that we can supply the rewards and also have enough sample units to bring with us to the housewares show. We're in the process of designing the packaging and artwork for the show now, so we'll update the project when that is done.
We have setup some really cool rewards to help say thank you for contributing. We really can't do this without you so it's the least we can do to show our gratitude. We are also planning to release as many updates as possible, the second any new info comes in - we will post it on our blog and here on KickStarter.
International shipping rates will apply to any order being shipped out of the US, shipping to Canada add $4 and International add $10. For more information, visit thedipr.com or email us at email@example.com, we love hearing from people.
Thanks for your support!
