Floop Fidget, Verkk Slider and Black Friday

A bunch of stuff in today's post...

Verkk - Coral Slider (More Zirconium and Copper available...)

First up:

The popularity of the *collaboration* slider -- the Verkk - Coral -- was overwhelming. While I gauged the quantity of Titanium quite well ...I TOTALLY UNDERESTIMATED the over-the-top-and-frankly-mind-blowing popularity of Zirconium and Copper versions.

There were two launches and both of these materials sold out within 60 seconds on both launches. A lot of understandably frustrated people who missed out.

So here's the deal...

I'm making more of both Zirconium and Copper as I type this. Will there be enough this time? (hard to tell to be honest).

What I can tell you is that they are launching around 24 hours from now (as I type this) - and this is the page you want to be on to have your chance at securing one:


Floop (coming soon...)

Someone on Facebook asked me:

"If can get 25 people to say "IN" to you re-making the original B33 Floop, would you make them?"

Long story short:

I didn't think there would be much interest. There was. And so now I HAVE to make some more Floops. :-)

Unfortunately it's been so long since I made them (nearly 2.5 years), that we've changed how we do things on the CNC machines ...and now I have to re-make pretty much everything from scratch. Not a problem - but it means it's going to take a little longer to get them made.

Here's what the original B33 Floop looked like:


YES, I am absolutely aware it's too early to be talking about Black Friday (kind of like how stores start putting up Christmas decorations in October) - but I'm going to do it anyway. :-)

We always get loads of questions asking if we are going to be doing anything for Black Friday. Hopefully if I start talking about it now, then we will have way less emails with this question.

Two years ago we had a HUGE Black Friday sale (in terms of what was available to buy) ...because I had the capacity to make a lot for it.

One year ago we had a small-ish Black Friday sale ...because I had very little CNC machine capacity to make products for it.

This year?

Well, it's somewhere in the middle...

We are going to have ROCK SOLID discounts ...but there is not going to be huge quantities available (just like last year I don't have much CNC machine capacity available).

I can say there will be both Spinners and Sliders. Oh, and there will be some new models here and there. Oh oh, and there should be (fingers crossed) quite a lot of Zirconium available on sale too.

I will provide more information as Black Friday draws closer.
