This project has already launched.

LobitaWorks presents: the Candycorn Bats!

These cute creatures flap around in search of candy and other sweet treats to nibble at. Candycorn Bat sightings become the most frequent around fall, and in particular, Halloween. These bats can be spotted well into December, as there is always an overabundance of holiday yummies to sample!

We have captured a few Candycorn Bats and have been training them to be cuddle buddies for the general public! The bats have taken very well to this new lifestyle- give them something sweet to eat and they’ll be your friend for life!

Each Candycorn bat sits at 12” tall including the big colorful ears, and is made out of super soft minky fabric, with faux fur accents. Their shape and material lends them to being extra super huggable! We know you’re going to absolutely love these.

BASIC FUNDING GOAL:

My initial funding goal of $12000 will cover 500 adorable bats to be produced. Your pledge is a pre-order and in the event we don’t reach our funding goal, you will not be charged. If you want a spooky friend to cuddle, be sure and tell your friends about this project!

Here’s a pie chart with the cost breakdown:

…It’s not a real pie, you can stop gnawing on that. Silly bats!

TIMELINE

The campaign will be over around the end of November, at which point there will be a waiting period for the funds to be released to me. Once funding is secured I will immediately place the orders for the plush, stickers, buttons, and postcards.

The stickers, buttons, and postcards I'm ordering online through US companies, so I should have these items before end of year and can have them delivered to you in January 2017 if you only ordered these items and no plush (the Batty Goodie Bag tier).

I've been given a time estimate of mid-to-end of January for a 500 pc plush order to be completed, so I've allowed plenty of extra time for factory delays, for the plush to arrive with me, create backer rewards, pack up your orders, and ship in batches, which is where I get the delivery estimate of March 2017.

If any new stretch goal plush are funded, delivery will be later- the prototypes will have to be made and approved which can take a couple of months, especially if there are any revisions needed.

In the months while I wait for the plush to be produced, my husband and I will be creating the other rewards (The Big One tier, Portrait of a Bat tier). These will be ready to ship as soon as the bat plushies arrive with me.
