What is Colossalnana?

Colossalnana is a monster variety of Croconana that we have painstakingly cultivated here in the Sorbet Jungle gardens. It all started out with our original croconana, and in our attempts to grow a larger variety (Giant Croconana) we discovered a method to increase Croconana growth exponentially! 

Colossalnana is a whopping SIX FEET LONG and 2 1/2 feet tall. Due to their size, they will be shipped *unstuffed* so you can "Grow your own Colossalnana!" That said, you will have to purchase or provide your own stuffing for the plush (and yes, if you want to you could fill them with bean bag beans :D) 

Instructions will be included to make sure all goes well, and as always we'll do our best to be available for any support you may need! No sewing or other technical skill will be required to make your Colossalnana grow, as there is a zipper on his belly to close up once it's full. 

 Who is Sorbet Jungle?

Sorbet Jungle is an indie designer brand that focuses on conceptualizing and producing original character and product designs. Interesting word play and cute animal themes are a staple of our company and fuel our passion to create! 

Founded in 2010 by our artist, Deanne George, Sorbet Jungle rose to be one of the leading companies of its type in the convention scene. 

So... Why Kickstarter?

As you might imagine, producing plush toys can be expensive as it is...now imagine that that plush toy is SIX FEET LONG! Seriously, this thing is like the size of a small couch or bed. That said, the breakdown is like this:

Most of the cost incurred is for making the plush itself along with the time it makes to both design and produce the physical rewards we're sending out for all tiers. We'll also (of course) lose a good chunk to Kickstarter for letting us use their platform, Backerkit for helping support our ability to track and mail out all of the packages, and then the cost that comes with packaging and mailing those packages to all of you!

 Production

As many of you probably already know (if you've visited at cons) we already have a couple of these made! They've been at several conventions with us over the country last year taking photos with attendees and always providing warm smiles. 

Since we have already done the work to prototype them this will significantly cut down the time it actually takes to produce them. Typically, once a plush is designed we go through multiple revisions (sometimes as many as 10!) to make sure they turn out just right, but that work has already been completed!  

How long will it take to get my order?

All orders should be fulfilled within 6 months of campaigns end (we want to be all done by New York Comic Con, hopefully a bit sooner!). The biggest hold ups that could slow things down are shipping (especially for international supporters), and production delays.

*US Shipping is included in the tier pricing. International shipping will be added during checkout. International backers are responsible for any customs fees or taxes that may be incurred.

EXCLUSIVE PINS (There's 5!)

Your choice of 5 Kickstarter-exclusive pins designed by us and a small collection of our friends! Our guest designers include Puglie, Gawki, Yetis and Friends, and Naomi Romero.

*Each pin is approximately 1.5 inches and has a rose gold metal finish. Final product may vary from the images shown.


EXCLUSIVE CROCONANA COLOR 

A kickstarter only MINT Croconana! These WILL NOT be made outside of or after this campaign, so this is the ONLY chance you'll have to get one!

*not a finished product in photo, actual shipped product may vary in color. 

SOFUBI

For the first time, we're offering a short run of our hand-painted soft vinyl figures for sale online. There are currently very few of these out in the wild as they are individually crafted  in Japan and painted one-by-one by our artist when she can make time to do so. 

EXCLUSIVE SOFUBI

On top of the normal run of Sofubi, these will be a limited edition colorway only available to our kickstarter backers!

 What are Stretch Goals?

"So what happens if you raise more than your $10,000 goal?" 

First off, WOW that would be cool, wouldn't it? Who knows what this platform can do for us? In the case that things get a bit more crazy than we're expecting...we've come up with some cool stuff we can do if we raise more than expected!

If we reach this goal, everyone who backs at the Exclusive Pin level and up will get a free sticker, maybe 2, absolutely FREE as a thank you for supporting.

If we reach this goal, we will make a baby version of the Kickstarter Exclusive Mint Croconana and add it as an available reward in both Kickstarter and Backerkit. 

 If we reach this goal, Plancaiman will now be a selectable option available to all Colossalnana backers.  

If we unlock this goal, we will release an ALL NEW PINK Croconana into the world, available as an add-on for this Kickstarter.   

If we reach this goal,  Blue Java Croconana will now be a selectable option available to all Colossalnana backers.  

If we reach this goal, everyone who backs at the Exclusive Croconana Tier and up will get a free Acrylic Keychain for helping support the campaign.

If we reach this goal, Nanagators will now be a selectable option available to all Colossalnana backers. 

Since we unlocked the pink Croconana, we've added a new stretch goal for Pink Baby Croconana's! These

If we unlock this goal, we will design and make available a Croconana themed Sweater (similar style to our Solram Sweaters) that will be a purchasable reward through Kickstarter and/or Backerkit. 

If we reach this goal, the Kickstarter Exclusive Mint color will now be a selectable option available to all Colossalnana backers.  

If we reach this goal, everyone who backs at the Exclusive Croconana Tier and up will get a free Enamel Pin for helping support the campaign. 

 If we reach this goal,  Pink Colossalnana will now be a selectable option available to all Colossalnana backers.   

If we unlock this goal, we will design and make available a Croconana themed Backpack that will be a purchasable reward through Kickstarter and/or Backerkit. 

If we unlock this goal, we will design and make available a Croconana themed Varsity Jacket that will be a purchasable reward through Kickstarter and/or Backerkit. 

 To all of you reading this! We appreciate your consideration in helping us bring the Colossalnana to life!

Special thank you to our friends for collaborating on this project and kicking out some amazing pin designs for Croconana!

Risks and challenges

We have been in business for nearly 9 years now, and in that time we have experienced every manner of pitfall. Thankfully, with a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck we’ve been able to navigate a path to overcome each and every one of them.

Manufacturing has been the largest part of these, and while we anticipate it moving along smoothly, there is always the potential for delays. Should this occur, we will inform backers immediately and keep you up to date on our progress.

All of the plush in this project have been prototyped prior to launch with the exception of the color for the kickerstarter exclusives. Having physical representations eliminates the guesswork and ensures that our backers have clear visuals of what they can expect.

We are confident that we can meet our deadlines, and provide a quality plush to each of our backers.
