Headquartered in Traverse City, MI, Silikids, Inc. the first mom-founded brand focused on creating products that are safe, modern and made entirely out of SILICONE, launched a month-long Kickstarter campaign today for their new Straw Tops. Silikids teamed up with top animation character designers Bill Schwab from “Frozen” and Jim Feeley from “American Dad” (Schwab and Feeley also just happen to be the co-founders husbands!) to create unique glass sets and cool art as rewards for the Kickstarter campaign. The glasses and art are exclusive to this Kickstarter campaign and will not be available again after November 20th, the date the Kickstarter campaign will end.
The collectible items are the perfect holiday gift and as a bonus all orders include a 3 pack of the NEW Siliskin Straw Tops.
The ingenious Silikids Straw Top is a silicone top that covers the top of any glass making it spill proof and converting it into a straw top.
“Our silicone tableware accessories like our straw tops are designed to make the basics like glass, easier and safer to use. A main focus of ours is to bridge the gap between innovative, high end design and affordability. ” said Stacey Feeley, co-founder Silikids. “This Kickstarter campaign allows us to celebrate great art and the simplicity of glass making it cool, functional and fun, while passing it on to generations to come.”
The campaign has a $7,500 fundraising goal that will go towards the production of the glassware sets, Siliskin® Straw Tops, high quality giclee prints, shipping and processing fees.
All Kickstarter backers of the Silikids Straw Top campaign will receive a 3-pack of Silikids Straw Tops and glass designs and there are a host of awards levels that include glass sets, limited edition prints (including high quality Giclee prints and signed limited edition artist prints too) from Schwab and Feeley. One top level backer will even get to have a power lunch with Schwab, Feeley and the Silikids team in LA to share notes, doodles and ideas.
The Kickstarter campaign for the Silikids Straw Top runs until November 20, 2014. To learn more about Silikids and the Straw Top visit the Kickstarter page here:
