PAW Patrol and New Character Skin Announced!
almost 2 years ago – Mon, Aug 06, 2018 at 06:25:31 PM

We have a little over two days left of the campaign and what a whirlwind it has been. Thank you again for your support!! Apologies in advance for a long update...there is a lot to talk about!

PAW PATROL UPDATE
We are really excited that our PAW Patrol licensing contract has been signed with Nickelodeon. Now we begin working with the Nickelodeon team to develop each character’s bespoke missions and the full product.

And by the way, of course, Chase and Skye aren’t on their own – we’re also working on a Ryder Storyball skin which we will be developing with possibly even more pups on the way!

MYSTERY CHARACTER REVEALED
Introducing our mystery character skin….(Ryder, Leader of PAW Patrol)

Ryder is the leader, rescuer, and teacher of the Pups. He has heart, a can-do spirit, and the skills PAW Patrol needs to get the job done! Ryder is very intelligent. He trains each of the pups to their own specific job (e.g. Marshall as a firefighter dog, Chase as a police dog etc.), and he invents gadgets used by the PAW Patrol team and teaches each pup how to use their own gadgets.

During an emergency, Ryder knows the solutions to each problem and he also knows which pups are needed in each mission. During rescues, you can catch a ride with Ryder on his hi-tech ATV that transforms into a hovercraft and a snowmobile. During an emergency, he calls and leads the Pups on missions to help the citizens of Adventure Bay.

Ages: 4+  
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Skills: Problem-Solving, Coordination, Social Play, Language, Gross Motor

If you want to add Ryder’s adventures to your reward, you can choose him as one of your skins or you will have the option to add additional skins before we start shipping out.

First Stretch Goal Achieved!
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Aug 01, 2018 at 11:39:24 PM

Your support, along with the help of over 1,000 people, has helped us achieve the first stretch goal! Thank you!! What that means is that everyone is getting a stand for each character skin to keep them looking fresh and display nicely.

NEW STRETCH GOAL - $200.000
Let’s keep it going! Our next stretch goal is at $200,000. We have a little over a week to achieve this and it’s totally doable! If every one of our backers gets just one friend to purchase, then everyone will benefit and get even more awesome items with their Storyball! Once we reach $200,000, everyone will get a travel bag.

The travel bag will help you keep Storyball with you at all times, even when on-the-go. It is machine washable and wipeable so it’s easy to clean. The bag conveniently fits anywhere, you can pack the bag in your suitcase or clip it onto any backpack for easy travel. It will hold one Storyball+skin, 2 extra skins, and a charging cord.

We are so proud to say that we were featured on Mashable, a great tech website! It means so much to us to see the article and support! Check it out HERE!

Also, we want to keep the Kickstarter love going, so here are a few more Kickstarter campaigns that we think you would like to check out.
