Your new favorite fidget spinner is the one you make with the new Lickety Spin food-safe spinner mold. Melt, freeze or bake your favorite food or candy to create some yummy, spinny fun!
After you make a Lickety Spin with your favorite hard candy, use your imagination and give other food and candy a try. Here are some of our favorites: Jolly Ranchers, Life Savers, Werther's Original, Hershey Kisses, Starbursts, and string cheese...yes cheese. We've also baked a chocolate chip cookie and froze Fruit Punch Gatorade in the mold. The possibilities are endless!
Subscribe to our YouTube channel for weekly episodes of "Will it Spin?" as we explore other fun ideas throughout the campaign.
Lickety Spin is the brainchild of Lexi and her Uncle Timmy. It was just a regular day at Lexi’s house hanging out with her Uncle Timmy when she showed him how she made her own candy fidget spinner by making a spinner-shaped impression in molding compound, filling it with candy and following it up with a quick trip to the microwave.
Lexi held up her super sweet spinner and Uncle Timmy was, understandably, impressed. And kinda hungry.
Together, they started talking about how to bring this kind of yummy fun to kids (and grownups with a sweet tooth) everywhere. Now Lickety Spin is here!
Lexi is a 4th grader living in Denver, CO. She loves her stuffed animals, playing piano and skiing with her parents. Lexi is a dinosaur enthusiast and hopes to work with animals someday. When not making candy fidget spinners, she’s usually chasing her three dogs around the house or playing Minecraft.
Her uncle Tim Swindle is a creator of the smash hit, Utter Nonsense, a board game that launched right here on Kickstarter and now has two editions sold at every Target in America. Tim lives in Chicago with his fiancée Puja. He believes in good ideas and the power of having fun to bring people together.
Once we reach our funding goals and Kickstarter ends, Lickety Spin will be available in 3 different exciting colors – red, green and blue!
In order to make the candy spin, we had our engineers create our own, custom finger pads with an integrated axle to ensure optimum spinning!
Risks and challenges
Bringing a product from the drawing board to reality is not an easy task. We’ve been fortunate enough to have the funds available to create production ready samples to make sure manufacturing runs smoothly. All that remains is to raise enough money so that we can greenlight the factory and begin production. With that said, there are always unforeseen events that can happen, especially when dealing with a factory that’s half a world away. Fortunately, we have a lot of experience bringing new products to market and we wouldn’t bring this to Kickstarter if we weren’t completely confident that we could get our project delivered to backers on schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
