Runbell has shipped!

Posted by Kevin John Nadolny (Creator)

Runbell has shipped!! Unbelievable, but we finished 1000 Runbells, made 750 boxes and then Japan Post came and took them away in a huge truck on Friday morning. 

We have loved this experience and have learned so much. Thank you for this opportunity and support. Your Runbells shipped on Friday and can take 1-2 weeks to arrive. 

The Posting

 We did have help from a five month old baby as well. She was adorable, but probably quite happy we are finished. She could only play with so many box scraps before getting bored.


Please do share stories, photos and videos of you using Runbell. How are you using Runbell? Where are you using Runbell? What is the reaction of other people when you use it? We are counting on your feedback to guide how we move forward.

      Thanks for the comment. We thought we had the boxes sized perfect. Once we closed them the Runbell boxes wouldn't be able to shake around (but I guess yours did). We will be using a professional shipping service in the future to automate the shipping for future orders. We shipped everything ourselves this time.

      Andrew, some people have gotten theirs in the UK. Have you?

      They should all almost be arriving now.

      I just got my runbells yesterday and I think they turned out really well. The operation and sound is really cool and I can't wait for my two runners to try them out. I was a bit disappointed in the shipping as both bells were just put in a box. Their fancy boxes were both a bit dented and torn but nothing major...just took a bit of the shine off. A sheet of bubble wrap would have worked great to keep them in perfect condition.
