Anxiety Trolls Getting Ready for Shipment
over 2 years ago – Thu, Jan 10, 2019 at 02:41:06 PM

After a much longer than expected month, the Trolls are FINALLY done! There was a slight issue that is now corrected. The Anxiety Troll hang tags were printed incorrectly and had to be reprinted as we wouldn't accept anything less than perfect for you, the backers! Due to this, we are ultra tight and squeezed to get this out before CNY (the factory takes off starting in about a week or so).  We will do our best but if we miss the freight deadline at the port in China, the plush will go out at the end of February and arrive in March, rather than arriving in February. Not the worst delay, considering they are ahead of schedule, but one nonetheless we are less than thrilled about.  Just thought we'd share the status of everything with the plush and show some pictures of what's going on with them!

OH! Also, one more thing! Marc's brother has been working on a really cool technology project for the past several years with the guidance of his whole family. It's his first project out of college, and thought you may all want to take a look at the smartest bag in existence! Better yet, our very own Rachel Korsen did the logo design so be sure to check that one out!

Thanks again, all! In the next update or the one after that we'll have a more finalized draft of the book to show you. We've been working hard on finalizing the narrative for the ABC's of Parenting, and Chris is nearly done with the Cover for the Lunarbaboon Deluxe Comics!

Best Regards,

Marc, Rachel, Rob and of course Chris "Lunarbaboon" Grady

Anxiety Troll Production Pictures + Garfield!
almost 3 years ago – Sun, Nov 25, 2018 at 09:48:18 PM

Hey all!

We just received some production pictures from the factory that we wanted to share with you! These will most likely be coming earlier than the game and the book as we are WAYYYY ahead of schedule. If anyone would like to arrange shipping and to separate their orders please send us a private message or email Marc@GoldenBellStudios.com

Hope those didn't scare you too much and give you any anxiety! 

In other news, we only have a few days left of our Garfield campaign. We are VERY close to funding and hope you all can lend your support to the project. Here's a preview picture

 Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/831309281/garfield?ref=c23lp2

Thanks again, all! We'll probably have an update closer to the end of the year on the book and into the new year! The BackerKit is still open to purchase your favorite products from Lunarbaboon: https://lunarbaboon.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

Happy Thanksgiving + Black Friday Surprise Goal!
almost 3 years ago – Fri, Nov 23, 2018 at 09:25:47 PM

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have a little surprise goal for all of you, but first we wanted to share this amazing work of art from Underpants and Overbites!

Now that you've survived Thanksgiving, here's an update on the book and a surprise add-on for Parenting is Easy and the ABC's of Parenting...as Rob and I (Marc) have been writing more of the ABC's of Parenting and finessing some of the stretch goals, I had decided to go through all my old notes from when I first started talking to Chris. In those thousands of messages, ideas, and brainstorming sessions, I found an idea I had about having these cute wooden blocks as add-ons for kids with the Lunarbaboon characters' faces. Admittedly, we all had temporarily forgotten about it but realized that with the addition of the expansions and the stretch goals all being reached, we wanted to make a new add-on available. We have JUST added to Backerkit a JUMBO sized Wooden ABC Block that can be purchased as a stand alone for anyone to teach their kids the ABC's. On top of that, if we can hit 200,000 in BackerKit we may find a way to make a CUSTOM Wooden Jumbo Dice for the game rather than having a standard acrylic dice which we've all seen over and over again!

Here is a preview of the type of Wooden Blocks we're talking about.

NOT FINAL ART. This is just an example of the level of quality we're producing!

Would love to hear feedback form everyone. If you'd like to get back in the BackerKit before we lock down orders by Cyber Monday you can log back into your order here:

Or if you'd rather create an entirely new pre-order rather tahn edit your existing pre-order from Kickstarter you can click here: https://lunarbaboon.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

OH! And we also have pictures of the mass production of the trolls coming in so stay tuned in the next update for the trolls wrapping up. Now's a time to get your new favorite Plush as a gift for the holiday season!

Just one more thing...We also had a late review just come in from Critical Grind Gaming,"At Critical Grind we love to introduce as many games as we can to new gamers. We always look for games that are simple to teach and entertaining. Lunarbaboon and Golden Bell Studios provide that with Parenting is Easy. It has simple rules and quick play, yet is entertaining enough to capture anyone from novice to experienced gamers. The creators have used their own art style for a nice personal touch. The flavor text, on the other hand, is hilarious and a bit of a distraction. It was really hard for me to pay attention to the game. That's the best excuse I can come up with for losing to my wife. The scenarios they have come up with in the game are amazing but be warned, do not let you kids play this. Giving them these ideas will not be good for anyone. - Shaun Tennant - Critical Grind Gaming"

Thank you Shaun for that amazing review!

And with that we wish everyone a less than hectic Holiday Shopping Spreed :D

With Holiday Love From,
Marc, Rachel, and Rob of Golden Bell Studios & Chris "Lunarbaboon" Grady
