Okay, now that I'm done with that I want to talk to you about a Kickstarter. In this space I've discussed what makes a Kickstarter campaign retail friendly, because this is a space where I get to share my opinions. In my humble (giggle) opinion, the Kickstarter I'm sharing with you today leads the pack in retail friendliness.
