BOO-BOOS - Bandages That Hurt (To Look At)

$5,409

214

The injuries depicted on these bandages are sickening and repulsive. But they're so much fun. So go ahead and slap them on and watch people gasp and gag at your laceration, burn, or infection.

**Please note that Boo-Boos will be available only through this Kickstarter campaign. They will not be sold after this campaign ends, so get 'em while you can!**

What are Boo-Boos?

Boo-Boos are just like the bandages you currently use to cover your cuts and scrapes, only they make your wounds look so much worse than they really are. If they don't, we recommend a trip to the hospital, stat!

A variety of injuries are depicted on Boo-Boos, including:

1. Slashing sharp force trauma

3. Skin ulcer with skin slip

4. Decubitus ulcer with maggot infestation

The bandages, despite how they look, are sterile, latex-free, and individually wrapped so you can rest assured knowing your boo-boos won't turn into Boo-Boos. All bandages measure 3″ × 0.75″ (76mm × 19mm).

Why would I ever want to wear these?!

Boo-Boos aren't for everyone, especially those with weak constitutions, but you have to admit they're definitely more interesting than any of the other bandages available today. If you don't mind a bit of attention, like having fun, and/or your real boo-boo smarts to such a degree you wish to convey that pain in a conceivable visual manner, then Boo-Boos are suitable for you!

These are so sick. How can I get 'em?

Please check the rewards list to the right. Depending on your pledge amount, you'll receive one or more packages of Boo-Boos. Each package contains four of each of the five designs shown above for a total of 20 bandages.

Shipping is free within the US, but if you're ordering from outside the US, please be aware that an extra shipping charge will be tacked onto the listed pledge amount.

**Please note that Boo-Boos will be available only through this Kickstarter campaign. They will not be sold after this campaign ends, so get 'em while you can!**

What's the story behind Boo-Boos?

$hërwøõd Förlêé, inventor of the Anti-Theft Lunch Bags, came up with the idea for Boo-Boos after witnessing an accident that involved a bit too much blood for his liking. A visit to the ER revealed that the injury was thankfully (but disappointingly given its looks) not very serious. A couple stitches later and all was good again. $hërwøõd maintains, however, that at the time, the injury was life-threatening, and I'm sure that many of you can relate to this sentiment after receiving nicks of your own. Now, with Boo-Boos, you can finally convince people of the gravity of your wound while keeping the truth under wraps.

Why are these only available on Kickstarter?

While there may be continued interest in Boo-Boos after this Kickstarter campaign ends, managing subsequent production runs can oftentimes be just as difficult and time-consuming as the initial production run. And given that we're an extremely small team with a few other products in the pipeline, we've decided to do just one run of these and then move on. We'd also like to reward all our forward-thinking backers who have the foresight to know a killer product when they see one with a one-of-a-kind collectible that will not be available anywhere else. You gals and guys deserve it! Thank you!

Why we need your support?

We've been collaborating with our manufacturer and have settled on designs we'd like to proceed with. But, in order to get these printed, we'll need to place an order for an amount equal to what we're looking to raise here on Kickstarter. Once we raise the requisite amount, we'll place the order and manufacturing will commence shortly thereafter.

If you can't see yourself wearing Boo-Boos, you can still help by ordering them for someone else, or by sharing this fundraising campaign with all your friends and followers. Thanks very much for your support!

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing physical products is always more difficult in reality than in theory, but we've had years of manufacturing experience with a wide-variety of products so we know how to spot red flags from afar. We expect that printing, packing, and shipping of these bandages to our warehouse will take approximately 4–5 weeks (as stipulated by our manufacturer). However, should there be any manufacturing hiccups, we'll be sure to keep you duly informed while combating the delay.
