Mixmates!

Caravan Shoppe is my favorite online destination. Also? They employ me as their in-house writer extraordinaire. They just launched their first Kickstarter campaign and we are all feeling pretty good about it. Find out how to get in on the goodness below. (And yeah, I wrote this blog post for them. See more of their blog goodness and amazing (much more amazing than me) here.)

You love our Olliblocks and they love you. We think it is time to take things to the next level.

Introducing Mixmates, your favorite DIY blocks turned into your kid’s favorite toy.

Mixmates for Kickstarter

Caravan Shoppe has just launched our first ever Kickstarter campaign to fund our first ever fully produced toy and we want you (need you!) to be part of the magic.

WHAT THE HECK IS KICKSTARTER?

Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Every bit of money pledged will go towards making Mixmate magic. If the project fully funds, we will throw confetti in the air and then get down to toy making work. If it doesn’t fund (oh, the sadness), then you will not be charged the amount you pledged. The money will stay in your bank account and we will have to learn to live in a world without Mixmates. (Please, don’t make us live in that world.)

OKAY, SO I LOVE THE MIXMATES AND I GAVE YOU MY MONEY. WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

So, so much! Every pledge level has fabulous, once-in-a-lifetime rewards. Mixmate Totes! Giant Mixmates! Engraved Mixmates! CUSTOM DESIGNED MIXMATES THAT LOOK JUST LIKE THE CHILDREN, ADULTS OR PETS OF YOUR CHOOSING! Phew, just to name a few. There really are more, but we are hoarse from all the capitalized shouting. Want to see all the rewards in their whimsical glory? Go to our Mixmate Kickstarter page and dig right in.

Rewards for backing on kickstarter

I LOVE MIXMATES AS MUCH AS MY THIRD BORN CHILD. I PLEDGED. BUT… WHAT ABOUT THE OLLIBLOCKS? CAN’T I HAVE THEM BOTH?

Yes, yes you can. Olliblocks will continue to rock our downloadable, DIY worlds on Caravan Shoppe.  In fact, as an act of both genius and good faith, Alma has created a special editionMonsters & Superheroes Olliblocks download that will be included at every pledge level. As soon as we fund, those files will be sent out to each and every lovely person that helps bring Mixmates to life.

The very best part of this? If we fund, then that means we will be able to bring even more of our Caravan Shoppe creations to life in a fully produced form. And we have to be honest, the thought makes us a little giddy.

AND A BIG THANKS TO… YOU!

And here is where we get a little sentimental….You all have been so amazing to us. Caravan Shoppe has been a runaway success because of every one of your Caravan Shoppe instagrams, pins and purchases. Your support has taught us to dream big. We wish we could scoop each and every one of you up for the most fabulous group hug of all time. But we can’t.

So we are doing the next best thing.

Over the course of the Mixmate Kickstarter campaign we will be holding three pretty darn fabulous giveaways. Stay tuned for your chance to win a little bit of Caravan Shoppe inspired happiness.

Check out our Kickstarter page to see the project, video and all manner of delightful rewards. If you would be so kind as to support that page and share it with your family and friends (heck, even slight acquaintances) well, we would be mighty appreciative.

Hugs! Kisses! Mixmates!
