Okay, latest sketch is back. And it's happy! I like that they adopted some of Lynne's ideas, though they're definitely reticent to change things like the tail and the ears. The only other thing I see really off is the fat neck. So if I can get them to adjust those three things, do you guys like this? Would you buy it?
I was talking with a friend last night who totally thinks I should email the whole story to Oprah. Just need 3,000 orders for a sound chip in the toy. I think it would be so great to have a Hero doll that said "I love you" and "Get Better." And maybe it could make that weird wheezing noise Hero makes when he's really happy. That would scare the little buggers into remission. ("Mommy, my Hero toy is choking...")
I don't know though, I don't really want to be in the fulfillment business. Can't you just picture our house overflowing with cardboard boxes, postage meters, hero dolls? But at the same time, it would be so amazing and worth it if somehow each one we sold could pay for one to be donated to sick kids...I don't know how this works. Must find a toy distribution mentor. Or maybe a corporate sponshorhip mentor. I don't even know what I don't know. Kind of exciting, though.
Started my workout class today. 7 am. No comment about the time. It was surreal, at one point I looked over at my girlfriend stretching out on the mat and flashed back to us in ninth grade as cheerleaders. Time is an odd thing. If the Dirty Dancing soundtrack had been playing in the background, I wouldn't have blinked.
