A Minnesota toy company, The Glow Company, recently became a Kickstarter sensation when they released their newest product on their fundraising website. The Force Field Cloak™ ended up surpassing its goal of $25,000, by 967% resulting in $241,681 in pre-orders, all within the first month of sales.
Terry Sachetti, the Inventor, explains the product this way, “Remember when we were kids, and afraid of the dark, unable to fall asleep for fear of monsters under the bed or in the closet? We would hide under our blankets because we believed they had the power to protect us. Children experience that fear of the dark every night, and parents struggle for a solution. The Force Field Cloak visually reinforces that protective power children believe in already, only now with a glowing protective shield. It’s the best thing to come along since the nightlight!” Now every child can have their very own Force Field. Finally, Fear of The Dark Defeated.
According to the Glow Company, when testing was done on the product, the first thing children said when the lights went out is “WOW!” quickly followed by “I want one!” These Force Fields have glow-in-the-dark patterns that glow brighter than a nightlight. “I created the Force Field Cloak so you can use it anyway you like,” Sachetti said. “Put it on your bed, wear it as a cloak, or even place it on an object that you feel needs Force Field protection.” Imagine the comfort a child would feel when using the protective cloak on their dreaded trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night, where they may fear seeing monsters along the way.
The Force Field Cloak comes in five different colors with five glow-in-the-dark designs and different glow colors. The Force Field Cloak uses a high grade, proprietary formulated glow-in-the-dark ink that is organic and nontoxic and is 100% child safe. Force Field Cloaks will glow for over 8 hours and it only takes about 20 minutes to charge up under a bright light. The longer you charge it, the brighter it glows. Cold water wash, air tumble dry, no iron, no bleach. It is made out of quality cotton-polyester blend material with fleece on the backside for comfort. Each Force Field is 54″ x 40″. The suggested retail price of the Force Field is $39.95. Force Field™ (Patent Pending) is a registered Trademark.
With the growing number of pre-orders, Aaron Bible, CEO of the company has said, I wish we could ship orders sooner, but it’s going to take us awhile to ramp up manufacturing to meet demand. We will have Force Field products in the hands of our backers by Christmas and plan to begin national distribution early 2018.” In order to keep up with the rapidly increasing pre-order sales, the company moved the new product over to Indiegogo InDemand.
