Project Update: Campaign OVER & Lemon Froggy Plush!!

Hey everybody, wanted to let you know the campaign is OFFICIALLY OVER!!  Thank you all SO SO SO SO MUCH for your support in making these silly froggy plush happen, I couldn't have done this without you!!

As a huge thank you for your support, I've decided to finish funding Lemon Froggy Plush, myself!!  You'll be able to choose them as an additional add-on, or select them as a color for your previously purchased froggy plush in the survey!!



I'll be prototyping them asap, so we won't have any photos of them finished for a little bit!!

Backer surveys are currently being worked on as we speak, so I'm aiming to get them out to you by the end of this week!!  I'll keep you posted on any possible hiccups that occur along the way!!

Thank you again SO SO SO SO much for making these froggies happen!!  I cannot wait to get them to you!!!

Project Update: Sample Updates!

Hello everyone! Wanted to post a quick update about the Meow Carousel Plush Bag. I've been working with the manufacturer on updating the Pink x White version of the bag with final changes because this will be the version that all the new colorways will be based off of. The sample revision process has been taking a bit longer than expected and we're still working out some last details but I wanted to share some updates anyway so you know what's going on!

Some details that changed so far:
  1. The left arm was much skinnier than the other limbs so we increased the thickness
  2. We changed the fur fabric inside of the crown from yellow to a more matching brown/gold
  3. We had issues with the current gold metal zipper quality so it was updated to a different full color nylon zipper
  4. The fish face was made slightly smaller
  5. Pocket sized was increased a bit

Side profile with thicker arm

Increased pocket size

New zipper

New brown fabric inside of crown (gems are misaligned)


There's still some things that need to be fixed like matching colors and getting the sizing/alignments on certain things tightened so hopefully that'll all be finalized by mid June. Once the details of this are finalized, I'll proceed with sampling the additional colors, yay! Most of the pledges were collected and I successfully received the campaign funds from Backerkit. Unfortunately, there was around ~$1,000 of pledges that didn't get collected/were possibly abandoned so I might have to pause on bulk ordering the last unlocked colorway Harlequin. I'm going to proceed with making the sample as mentioned before and see if I can cover the cost difference. I want to make sure I have final samples of everything first before proceeding with the survey so everyone gets an opportunity to see the final product before deciding on color so thanks so much for waiting!

That's it for now! Thank you!

I originally was checking for survey updates, as many of the projects I've backed have been throwing so many surveys at me left and right, but looking through the Campaign again has informed me that with all of the unlocked designs and guest artists- that the survey for this is a lot more complicated than just asking which plushies you want, and I shouldn't expect all projects to move forward at the same pace as others. 😅 So, uh, just wanted to give a reassurance that there's a lot of excitement and support for these animal buddies! Wish you well and ecstatic for the developments of the goodies! From TOH, to Colorful Puppies, to these fluffy friends, you have my unwavering support! 😁

Project Update: 3 days left & 94% funded!!! + new tier added!!

Hey y'all, hope you're having a great week!

Wanted to do another small update to let you know- there are 3 days left in this campaign!!  It ends on Saturday the 25th at noon!!  We're coming up on the final stretch!!!  We're also currently 94% funded, thank you all SO SO SO SO MUCH for your support thus far!!!

We're also added a brand new tier, as per a very kind backer's suggestion!!  There is now a $1 "No Reward" tier for anybody who wants to contribute, but doesn't want anything!!  I've also added the $1 "No Reward" add-on, so you can add that to any tier!  No worries if that doesn't interest you of course- figured I'd mention it, though!!

As always, if you know somebody who might enjoy these silly froggies, sharing the campaign is HUUUUGELY helpful!!  Thank you again so much!!

Any fun plans this week?  I'm working on frog facts and freelance- kinda the usual!!

Project Update: Series 2 update: bandaids have arrived!!

Happy Friday critters!

I've got a long overdue update for you today-- the bandaid prototypes finally arrived! They look incredible too and I'm so happy!

Bandaids will come packaged together in a poly bag with a length of elastic string that you can cut to suit your needs. Because of the loose bits and assembly required they are NOT recommended for young children. It's not an ideal solution, but so far its the best one I've come up with.





Now for the transparency portion of this update! I have some really big, both fun and a lil stressful numbers to share.

  • This month I ordered over 22,000 pcs worth of plushies and accessories (not including keychains, pins, or totes-- that's gonna be another several thousand!)
  • This means we'll have lots of leftovers for the tinyteeth.shop store after all orders are fulfilled.
  • Final cost? Roughly $210,000! That doesn't include shipping though, which is estimated to be another $30,000-$50,000 (this is actually less than I expected, so I'm pretty pleased)
  • I've got another $100,000 set aside for shipping to backers and preorder customers. I don't think it will cost this much, but I'm not sure exactly how much 3rd party fulfillment will add to the cost so better safe than sorry.

Now you might be going--that doesn't add up to how much the campaign raised and you're right! Is the rest all profit? Haha, I wish. Have a few more big numbers, for funsies.

  • Advertising fees ate up about $71,000
  • Professional tax prep and getting my books in order cost another $5,000
  • Hiring a lawyer and getting the trademark process started was roughly $4,000
  • Both Stripe (payment processor) and BackerKit also take a cut of my earnings, to the tune of about 7% if I remember correctly (roughly $42,000)
  • Failed payments, believe it or not. The estimates you see on the preorder store and campaign page don't account for the hundreds of payments that fail (over $30,000 worth in this case)
  • And the remainder goes towards prototypes, any unexpected fees, and sustaining myself as I bring everything to fruition. 

In summary, running a giant campaign ain't cheap! But assuming all goes well, everything that sells in the tinyteeth.shop store is essentially profit and that's pretty exciting! My ultimate goal is to invest a good portion of that money into future snughoul-related projects and keep bringing y'all these spooky cuties for years to come 💖

Also reminder that the snughoul discord is poppin' and yall should check it out: https://discord.gg/GPsu6exqzX
(the link won't expire this time I promise 😅)

Project Update: Survey update: Sticker Fix

Hey all! This is a quick update for any of you who had individually selectable stickers as part of your survey questions:

There was an error where individually chosen stickers were being over charged by $5 each.

This got missed in the smoke tests. That price is only meant to be for additional stickers! However, this is now repaired. If you did not back for the Non-Plush Hoard level you should be good, since dragon bundles are a different sku.

Stickers were the only items that were an issue and everything should be fine now. Please alert me right away if you encounter an issue, I am happy to help!
