Introducing Minoumi - Designed Cat Toys

Minoumi combines two of our favorite things: cats and design.
In our opinion most cat toys aren't well designed and in general look pretty boring. Therefore we designed a new series of catnip toys. 

We care for good design and also for high quality. For this reason we decided to produce our toys locally. Our Catnip Toys are Handmade with love in Germany. 

 

Let's bring style to catnip toys

Wouldn't it be perfect, if your cat's toys would suit your taste and fit perfectly into your living interior? 

Cats go crazy when an object is constantly moving and they love catnip. For this reason we designed our cat toy as a triangular pyramid and filled it with our special catnip mix - embedded in cotton. Cats just love it! 

And the best part is: While your cat is having fun, you can enjoy the design of the products.

We developed three different shapes of Minoumi Cat Toys:
The Big Pyramid, the Mixed Mini Pyramid Set with three small pyramids and the Playing Roll.   

 

 

The combination of different layers and the special catnip mix makes our product durable, stylish and unique.

 

Catnip

The effect of catnip can vary with each cat. Nervous cats become more relaxed while lethargic cats become active. With some cats you will recognize euphoric effects - other cats become sleepy. 

 

The patterns of Minoumi Cat Toys

You can choose between three different pattern sets

And if you own a lot of cats - don't worry! The patterns can be combined with each other and harmonize perfectly. 

 

  

The Big Pyramid

The Big Pyramid is ideal for fully grown cats and also offers a lot of fun to kittens and small cats. The triangular shape ensures that the pyramid is constantly moving and provides a lot of fun. 

The Mixed Mini Pyramid Set

The Mini Pyramid Set is perfect for Kittens and every playful cat. The small triangular cushions are made for a lot of fun and endless playing. Each set combines the different patterns of every design. 

 

 

The Playing Roll

The Playing Roll is just perfect for cuddling and snuggling!

 

 

Why Kickstarter?

We cannot wait to bring our products to the market. But first we want to know if you are as excited about Minoumi as we are. We want to keep the production local - that means higher costs. Since we want to keep the selling price low - so that Minoumi cat toys will soon be available for as many housholds of cat and design lovers as possible - we have to produce a larger number of toys. That way we can cut down on the costs of materials. The price of our fabrics, fleece and fiberfill will be lower if we are able to order large amounts. Also the manufacturing costs at the factory will be more economic if a large number of our toys are produced. 

The budget of 10,000€ will provide us with resources to produce the minimal order quantity of 500 Toys (of all shapes and designs). More is always possible as we planned the production to be scalable. We are involved in the production at every point and will personally be checking the toys to ensure the best quality for our backers. 

Kickstarter is about connection and collaboration. So we couldn’t think of a better place to get in touch with cat and design lovers all over the world to bring Minoumi to life.

 

Rewards

If you want to support our idea, there are different ways to do so. We love you already and we hope you like our rewards!

 

 

Stretch Goals

10,000€ - Free printable Minoumi Christmas card - if we reach our goal of 10,000€ until Christmas, we will provide a free printable Minoumi Christmas card for our backers. If you want to give our Minoumi toys as a Christmas present to a beloved cat owner you can print our card and use it as a voucher.

30,000€ - 1 more design - if we reach 30,000€ we will present three more patterns for our Minoumi Products. 

50,000€ - exclusive pyramid packaging for our products
- if we reach 50,000€ all our Minoumi products will be delivered in a beautiful customized pyramid-packaging.

 

Thank You For Your Support!

We appreciate your support in helping make these products a reality!

 The prototypes of each product are ready and approved by different cats. With your support we’ll be able to get our Minoumi products into production and bring more design and style to cat toys. 

 We would also appreciate your help in sharing our campaign with your friends and family. Please post the campaign URL on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you use. The more people are aware of Minoumi, the smoother our launch period will go.

 

 

Your support means so much to us! We can’t wait to get our catnip toys to you.

Risks and challenges

Production:
To maintain the high quality of our products we prefer to produce our catnip toys locally. The local producer of our choice is a small business and very close to our Minoumi Headquarter.

The production in a small factory can sometimes take longer than outsourcing our production abroad. We have not yet made any measurable experiences with the production of a larger quantity of our toys. However, together with the producer we have planned the production process very carefully and are sure that we can meet our schedule.

Fabric:
Unfortunately, due to our long planning phase we cannot guarantee that the fabrics we have chosen will be available indefinitely.
At this stage of the planning, we cannot yet assume that we can have our own textile printed. To do this we would have to order a very large amount. If one of the fabrics is no longer available we will of course get a comparable and equally beautiful replacement.

We will do our best and update you frequently about our progress. If there are any changes during the process we will let you know!
In the case of any delay in the production and shipping of your rewards, we will make sure to keep you continually updated.

Thank you!
