Splash Stacks, Baby Bath Splash Mat, Hits Quirky’s Online Store collaboratively developed by Quirky’s community.
Last week marked the official release of Splash Stacks — a community-developed bath side cushion mat. Bath time with the kids is fun, but it gets you wet and can be hard on your knees. Quirky’s Splash Stacks keeps you comfy and dry, and makes bath time a joy for kids and parents alike.
Splash Stacks features a water-proof foam cushion that covers both the floor and the side of the bathtub to protect your knees and keep you dry. It has three main cushions that fold out to wrap over the bath ledge. When bath time is over, simply fold up lightweight Splash Stacks and store it. Its built-in handle also makes Splash Stacks great for travel. Splash Stacks makes bathing a breeze while saving your knees.
Splash Stacks is the 52nd product designed and developed by the Quirky community since Quirky’s launch on June 2, 2009. Quirky gives everyone the chance to get product ideas out of their heads and onto shelves. Each week, Quirky’s community collaborates to select and produce one new product idea. Last week ended the development phase of Splash Stacks, and it is now available for pre-sale in Quirky’s online store for $34.99 (MSRP: $39.99).
Quirky [http://www.quirky.com] engages participants to collaborate in every aspect of product creation — from ideation , design, naming, manufacturing, marketing, right on through to sales. Anyone can participate on Quirky.com either by submitting their own product idea for $10, or by voting, rating, and influencing other people ‘s product [http://www.quirky.com/products] ideas. Cooler still, 30¢ of every dollar generated from the sale of a Quirky product goes back to these influencers.
Every week, users post ideas on Quirky to be rated by the Quirky community. The community surveys the submissions during a seven – day evaluation period and selects one product to move forward into product development. Quirky’s community then begins weighing in on everything from naming to logo selection to packaging through to prototype.
The final product becomes available for pre-sale in the Quirky online store. Once the product hits its pre -sale threshold, credit cards are charged, and the product goes into production and delivery. At this point, 30¢ of every dollar made from the direct sale of these products goes back to the community. “Community” in this case covers both the ideator as well as all people who voted, commented, and rated the project idea along the way.
