July Kickstarter Update!

An update? Here's a BIG one.

 

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a video. So take a seat cause we have a lot of things to cover.

Quick personal update. Since the Kickstarter launched, I graduated college, became a Venture for America fellow, moved to Cincinnati, OH and have been working as a Graphic Designer. On top of all that, I’ve been networking, talking to investors and finding new team members to help Healthy Roots grow all for you.

So let’s go over how Healthy Roots has changed. We now have a COO, Stephen Brewster. I met Stephen here in Cincinnati and he’s taken on the task of running the business side of things from assisting in  day to day operation and budgeting of Healthy Roots.

So one of our biggest hold ups was the design of the dolls. It took some time to find a 3D designer to redo the rendors. Once we found one, we began working immediately and have a new redesign for Zoe and working designs for Dara, Gaiana and Marinda to be completed soon.

We’ve been in communication with the manufacturer for the past 3 months and have gone from a 3D prototype, to completed master molds to working final with hair, skin, eyes and clothes selected.

All that being said, I’m happy to announce that the first 1,000 dolls will be here in August 2017!

Even more good news. We are developing an app focused on natural hair care and we would love to have you be apart of the project.

That’s all for now. If you’ve moved since the kickstarter happened, make sure to update your address. If you want to get in touch with us, message us at healthyrootsdolls@gmail.com.

In an effort to keep our backers updated we launched this blog on our website so stay tuned!

And that’s all from us for now.

Best,

Healthy Roots team
