About

Kids can be loud, their toys shouldn't be. As parents of two under two, we have accumulated a great number of toys, many of them being electronic. These electronic toys and books are great for learning and fun, but they are almost always too loud and usually don't have volume adjustment. The noise of these toys added stress to our already crazy lives, and we found that many of the toys exceeded hearing-safe levels. We tried DIY solutions such as the tape-and-tissue cover, but none of them "shhtuck"; they either weren't effective or were not durable enough to survive a toddler. We knew there had to be a better solution, and as we talked to other parents about their issues with noisy toys, we had an idea...

Shhtickers! Shhtickers are transparent, food-grade silicone disks that have high-strength adhesive backing for attaching to the audio port of electronic toys. Shhtickers are only 1mm thick, flexible to conform to uneven surfaces, and are 1.75" wide to fit most toys. If your toy requires a more precise fit, Shhtickers can easily be cut to size with scissors. Once applied to an external audio port with the easy adhesive peel-and stick backing, Shhtickers drastically reduce noise levels of electronic toys. Shhtickers lowers the noise and inherent parental stress level of "those toys," the one your kid loves that also happens to be louder than a jet engine. Shhtickers are great for any toy, book or kids' item that has an electronic audio port. 

Who are Shhtickers for? Parents, guardians, teachers, day care providers, uncles & aunts, grandparents, neighbors, friends, Romans, countrymen. Got toys? Get Shhtickers. 

Please join our campaign and bring some peace back to playtime!

Risks and challenges

Risk 1: Manufacturing issues. While we have a solid manufacturer in place that has provided excellent prototypes, there is always the possibility they are unable to deliver our product at scale, or pricing becomes unsustainable for us to sell Shhtickers. We will overcome this problem by establishing backup producers.

Challenge 1: Child product regulatory testing. If Shhtickers are successfully funded, we will undergo extensive testing in accordance with United States regulations via approved third party testing agencies. Having already discussed our product with them, we are confident that Shhtickers will easily pass.
However, if there is a problem with Shhtickers passing regulatory testing, we will adapt the product and retest until successful.
