Excellent feedback!


This is a copy of the update I posted at https://fundit.ie/project/activacation–the-family-board-game today Saturday 1st February ’20

The feedback so far from the newspaper article and radio interview has been excellent. Another high-value reward is sold out and the fund has passed the €4000 mark. It’s exciting to realise that so many other people see the potential of ActiVacation®️ and are willing to pledge their hard-earned money to help make production of the board game a reality. I’ve a bit to go yet so please keep spreading the news. All pledges are welcome and there are still some excellent & interesting rewards available. 

Many thanks again

Will there be plastic components in the design of ActiVacation®️?

As many of you know, this is usually a dog blog. Our hobby is ‘litter picking’ on the beach. #2minutebeachclean @cleancoasts.

In recent weeks, following storm Brendan, an enormous amount of plastic ‘stuff’ has washed up. So much so that it’s difficult to know where to start. Yesterday the 2 dogs (Missy & Brufus) and I tried to limit ourselves to the most colourful plastic bottle tops. But then we couldn’t resist a few cigarette lighters, plastic forks or parts thereof, and aw heck next thing you know we had a flip flop, the sole of a shoe, biscuit-box-inserts, ropes and lots more!!

Which brings me to the design of ActiVacation®️. I don’t want someone on a beach of the future stumbling across an insert from our box. And while it seems from experience of the prototype that the Tour Guide role might require the robustness of plastic, I am leaning towards heavy-duty cardboard. The samples are of excellent quality which I will attempt to video for you all at some stage shortly.

Have a good day!!
