Hrm... something went wrong.
Hey, bad things happen to the best of us. Don't worry, the gnomes have been dispatched. Maybe try again in a little while.

Adding Extra Plush (after it ends)

December 8th - via:
Wanted to throw this out here quick but I know a bunch of people could only get one or two of the designs they wanted (bad time for a KS I know, I'm sorry!) and wanted more or extras down the road. I will be prioritizing puffer plush addons for... (Read More)

Quick Survey & Comments On Future Updates

December 2nd - via:
I am so excited about these. ^_^ Halloween Hounds is nearly done so I apologize I haven't been making many posts here about these yet. Trying to make sure that project is done. It's not going to meet the December deadline because I'm being picky (oh... (Read More)

Add-on issues & Mermaid Magnet

November 25th - via:
If any add-ons are giving you issues I can handle things on the backend after the project ends. Kickstarter didn't do much last time I requested help on them not working for everyone. Can see that here:... (Read More)

30 Plush Tier Added!

November 21st - via:
^_^ Per request, a reward tier has been added for the 30 plush option! I hope you are building puffer forts! :D  (Read More)

All plush unlocked

November 19th - via:
So I've decided since I have ornament sales and halloween hound KS leftover sales this month and next, I'll just unlock the last plush so if you wanted any of the 4, there ya go. I removed any other stretch goals. Safer to just focus on the plush... (Read More)

Prototype arrived!

November 16th - via:
I probably should have fluffed it and cleaned it up a bit but some of the Halloween Hound rewards came in so I'm getting those packed up for the orders I can ship out. :D Final version 100% needs larger tears. Definitely going to work on that if we... (Read More)

If we can unlock sad puff....

November 14th - via:
So I think my plan is if we unlock the sad puff, I'll throw the difference on my company CC so all 4 can be unlocked (that way anyone backing for 4 won't be upset they can't have one of each). We need about 55 more backers so please spread the word!... (Read More)

Bliss is unlocked!

November 10th - via:
It's like a few bucks away so I will be unlocking this. Onto Snivel! ^_^  (Read More)

More prototype pics

November 10th - via:
So I guess once I have it in hand (it's heading to me), I can look at it and decide if the tears need to be larger. Feel free to weigh in on this. It's obviously not unlocked yet but, here are more pics. = )  (Read More)


November 9th - via:
So I think the tears are too small but this is the final stretch goal. It was based on this which was them just throwing tears onto the yellow plush before working on the blue. Going to get them to enlarge the tears on the orange one.  (Read More)

First goal funded!

November 8th - via:
Ahhh! I am so happy we've already hit the first goal! Thank you! I can't wait to post the new sample when it finishes in two days as well. :D I know a few of you already know and have called it the "this is fine" puffer but it'll be a fun unveiling... (Read More)
