Who is Morris?

Morris, an interactive stuffed animal that encourages you to turn him inside out and explore his innards. 

 

Where in the world did Morris come from?

Morris started as an exploration of material textures, his fantastic form was inspired by the real fish that inhabit our Earth. I wanted to make an object that showcased the unique and often overlooked sense of touch. Morris offers a new and playful way to experience everyday materials!

 

Why am I Kickstarting Morris?

I'd like to make a limited production run of Morris so he can be accessible to lots of people — whoever wants a Morris can get one! After I posted the first Morris online he was quickly picked up and featured by several blogs like Gizmodo and Notcot. As his picture was passed around the internet, I received lots of emails from people wanting a Morris of their own. In order to make Morris accessible to more people, I began to search for a way to produce a limited run at a market price.

 

Where is Morris made?

To facilitate the production process, I've partnered with Big Idea Design LLC located in Schaumburg, IL. They have years of experience managing high-volume factory production and have been a part of several successful Kickstarter campaigns. We have been working together to select a factory, source materials and refine samples for the first production run. 

 

How will the Kickstarter funds be used?

A majority of the funds will go towards placing the minimum 1,000 unit factory order and shipping the fish from the factory to each backer. Another small percentage of the money is set aside by Kickstarter as a fee. The rest will be used to cover all overhead costs for running and creating the Kickstarter campaign. Any stretch goal funds will be used to fund another limited run of Morris or to design a new reversible animal!

 

Morris?? That's a strange name for a fish...

Morris is named after all of my dead goldfish. As a child, every time I got a new goldfish I would name it Morris and it would inevitably die, as goldfish eventually do. Their memories can now live on through the immortal toy Morris fish.
