The Hero Project: A Kickstarter Project

I learned about this project on Kickstarter, it looks pretty cool. It is going to take a hell of a lot of oomph to get it funded but it would be cool if it got funded.

I got this message from Wayne and Tucker from Dynamo Development Labs regarding the project.

Hi, Ben.

I’m contacting you because I think you and your readers would be interested in our project and time is ticking away. We need your help to get the word out.

We’re Dynamo Development Labs and we design hero toys for kids. We work for companies of all sizes, for a variety of ages and on brands that you know and love from Pokemon and ImagiNext to Star Wars and Spiderman.

We grew up on stories of mythology and National Geographic magazine and we see a hole in the market for toys that introduce kids to characters from the unique and exotic cultures from around the world- India, Japan, ancient Egypt, North Africa, ancient Meso-America. The Hero project aims to put those great heroes into kid’s hands!

Hero figures and their stories are important to kid’s natural development. Heroes help children reach beyond the everyday, to try on various modes of identity, work out the nature of what it right and wrong, and set an example for how to overcome adversity. We want to give kids the opportunity to own a pantheon of amazing action hero toys that are grounded in these captivating mythologies.

Our first figure is Rama, the greatest hero of India. At 8 inches tall, he is built for small hands and tough play (Age rated 4+). This is a durable, fun toy meant to be played with and handed-down to others. He has fun accessories including a real, working bow and set of magical arrows and a 5×7 fact card/bio that introduces his story to the child. Rama-themed story and activity books are also available.

This toy is being offered through the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter, which is used to fund creative projects via a pre-order system. This campaign runs until August 8th (8/8), so we really need help getting the word out to ensure that we can get these in kids hands!

We believe that kids and parents are interested in an alternative to the pop-culture ‘extravaganza’ of toys. We’re trying to provide another option of equal or better quality that kids and parent can rally around.

To get a glimpse of what we’re about, check out the Hero Project Kickstarter page- – and let us know if you have any questions.

Can you help us by featuring the Hero Project on your blog? If you are willing to post, but don’t have time, we can write a guest post introducing the project. So let us know.

Thank you for taking the time to check us out. Its people like you that will help make the difference.

All the best,

Wayne and Tucker

    1. Wayne,

      You are welcome. I’m not a Rhode Islander, I live right over the border in Attleboro, MA. Good luck with the campaign.
