FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You’d be amazed at some of the questions we get asked about Squishy Forts! Here are some answers to the ones we get asked most!
It sure is! We came up with the crazy idea and our fine backers over at Kickstarter brought it to life!
We’re currently finalising our manufacturing, but if you’d like to be one of the first people in the world to secure a Squishy Forts Pillow Fort Construction Set, then jump on over to our pre-order page!
Our current estimate is for new orders to begin shipping no later than November 2016.
We’ve already shipped one batch of orders out to pre-order customers and Kickstarter backers, but hit a bit of a hitch with manufacturing when we went to put in the order for our second set. We’ve got a solution underway and regular manufacturing should begin again soon.
Of course you can! Kids love Squishy Forts, but the truth is we invented Squishy Forts for adults! As a rough guess we’d estimate that half of our customers are adults buying it for themselves (and the other half are probably adults that are just pretending to buy it for kids).
With its micro-suede cover, our Pillow Fort Ottoman and Pillow Fort Couch blends into the swankiest of living rooms. What better way to impress your guests at your next adult cocktail party than by building a fort? And if you’re looking for a fun date activity, why not “pillow fort and chill”?
We currently ship globally with UPS. This allows us to ship within the United States at a great rate, with speedy delivery. It does mean that our shipping rates for international customers are currently a little bit higher, and we are currently working to bring these down. Also please note that UPS do not ship to PO Boxes, but only residential or corporate addresses.
It’s true that Squishy Forts’ parent company is based out of Perth, Western Australia, but the majority of our customers are based in the United States, so we made a decision to base all of our manufacturing and distribution operations there.
And with the help of our American-based design team, we’ve been able to make Squishy Forts even better! We like to think that Squishy Forts is what happens when “Australian creativity meets American ingenuity”.
Squishy Forts is made from 100% polyurethane foam, with each block wrapped in a 100% polyester poplin fabric containing neodymium rare-earth magnets. Our ottoman and couch covers are made from microsuede.
Our foam and fabric passes flammability safety requirements and our magnets are tighly secured, with additional safety zippers to ensure that no loose magnets are able to find their way into children’s hands.
Adult supervision is always recommended, and play should be discontinued if product is damaged or magnets become loose.
Absolutely! We’ve had a number of parents, therapists and clinics that engage with special needs children use our product and they highly recommend it.
Adult supervision is always recommended, and we encourage children to avoid sticking Squishy Forts in their mouth, or using as weapons. (Squishy Forts are much better for building with, after all)
While made of all-new materials, Squishy Forts is manufactured in a factory which recycles foam scraps as stuffing for other products (in fact, they use so much recycled foam that they even recycle other companies’ offcuts!). By locating our manufacturing in the USA, near our primary customer base, we’re also able to reduce any carbon overheads introduced through excessive transportation.
