Artificial Intelligence driven Marketing Communications
Hi 👋! My name is Natalie, and 3 years ago I launched my brand Munchicat here on Kickstarter with the help of hundreds of amazing backers. I’m so excited to be back launching a brand new catnip toy set!
What is Wagashi? “Wagashi” is Japanese for “sweet, dessert or treat”, and each toy is designed in the style of my favorite Japanese snacks and treats. I’ve endeavored to bring the same level of care and attention to detail and design to our catnip wagashi as is given to creating human wagashi 🌸.
How many pet toys would you call “beautiful”? Probably not many. I mean, you’ve been in pet shops, right? I could never find any. Munchiecat was born from my desire to change that — to make toys that would wow both cats and their humans.
My designs focus on visual elegance for the humans, enjoyability for the cats and safety for everyone. That means each piece is precision-sewn from our durable yet minky soft plush. And no beads, paints, feathers, strings or anything that could pose a hazard.
Top it all off with a generous infusion of potent catnip and you’ve got most beautifully designed toys for cats…that keeps humans in mind too.
If this is your first time backing a Kickstarter campaign, don’t worry! Just follow these steps to back our campaign.
Each toy has a different purpose and engages healthy behaviors such as chasing, kicking, jumping, and cuddling. The crinkly texture, jingly sounds and catnip will keep kitties engaged while the soft plush material of the toy will entice your feline into a cat nap.
Simply increase your pledge amount to include your add-on item (shipping is included). You will be able to tell us which add-on you pledged for in the survey that will be send out after the campaign has ended.
Funding Goal $3000 Our goal of $3000 will help us cover the costs to get started with production.
If we can reach our stretch goals, then our 🍓Strawberry Mochi (aka. Ichigo Daifuku) toys and Roll Cakes can be made available too!
Not bragging or anything 😁
Estimated delivery date 📦 is May 2020!
Simply because Kickstarter is all about connection and collaboration. Kickstarter backers are creative and open thinkers who get excited by something new and different. So we couldn’t think of a better place to get in touch with cat and design lovers all over the world to bring our Wagashi set to life.
As this is my 3rd line of plush catnip toys, I feel very confident about the process and what it takes to successfully do something like this. There may be unexpected delays in production or shipping transit times, but otherwise almost everything that I need to do has been done and now I’m hoping you’ll join me and help bring this idea to life! Our toys are professionally manufactured following child toy safety standards and we make sure each toy holds up to typical pet behaviors like biting, chewing, scratching. We’re constantly making improvements through our customers’ feedback and extensive research. Thank you all for your continued support and for helping us grow!
