Tooling!

Our first look at tooling... looks like something straight out of Star Wars!  We hope the force is strong with this one!

Safety First!

We are taking safety very seriously... here are a few photos of the fixture we had custom built so we could test tikr to the extreme!

Top this!

Another unique feature of tikr... removable/interchangeable tops!  This is one of the designs we're kicking around and will be testing soon!

Time to make the Treats!

We've spent a lot of time selecting the perfect shapes and sizes.  The gear shape and assorted sizes help keep the treats inside tikr longer than we'd originally expected!

Prolonged play - CHECK!  Now it's time to select the perfect manufacturer!

tikr Packaging

The packaging concepts are coming along nicely!  

We made a few modifications to create a compartment for the treat samples we are planning to include!

Kickstarter Video - lights, camera... PLAY TIME!

Today we spent the day at D:E Creative Services in Austin filming the Kickstarter Video.  Our dogs were much more comfortable in front of the camera than I was, that's for sure!  Big thanks to Kit and Smith for getting things pulled together!  

We shot the entire video in just 6 hours.  What an experience... so excited to see how all of this turns out!

2nd prototype arrives!

After making a few modifications to the first prototype, we were ready to move to a 3D printed Polyurethane prototype process.  Here are the results... but, I think we have a few more minor adjustments to make.

1st prototype arrives!

Like an expecting father, I paced all day and continuously refreshed the Fedex Tracking status.  Once received, I tore into the box, pulled out the parts and assembled the toy...

And guess what... IT WORKS!
