#1 Little Eatz
It actually looked as though Little Eatz was going to bridge the gap between the dinner table and the dog bowl with one fell swoop. As clearly evident from their Kickstarter video, Melissa Little, and her husband traded teenagers for dogs, only to quickly find out their pugs enjoyed eating the same food that they did. They believed there was a gap between people food and dog food, and they were right. However, not very many people were interested in funding the project and it ended with only 12 donors and $251, shy of their required $5,000, proving just how much the unpopular the idea actually is since people just feed their dog's table scraps anyway.
#2 The Cool Baby
This was confusing at first. The Cool Baby, which fell $50,000 short of its $90,000 goal, was a novelty product that portrayed itself as something everyone really needs. It's a fake baby in a carrier, with a bottle that gets shoved up its rectum, with a straw jutting from its cap for your cool drink needs where drinking is prohibited.
#3 The Cool Baby
The pitch is ideal for alcoholics that can't multitask at home and is accompanied by a video that tries being clever and funny but winds up being terrifying instead. Yet, 348 people pledged to back the production of this cool baby thermos, but it didn't quite make its goal. Thank GOD!
#4 Pet Phones
People love pampering their pets with clothing, bejeweled collars, and gourmet treats. Now thanks to Pet Phones, we have headphones designed specifically for our pets to listen to their favorite music. They are designed specifically to fit into the pets ears and drown out the outside world, which is great for dogs with anxiety issues in a thunderstorm. However, the campaign failed to reach its very ambitious goal of $196.000. With only 7 backers, maybe an mp3 player for a dog isn't that imperative after all.
Nothing is safe from the battle of the sexes, including safe non-gender specific video games. Selena Hall found her daughter addicted to the game Minecraft and wondered why there wasn't a girls version, with pink colors, unicorns, and fluffy clouds and jewels. So she started a Kickstarter campaign but it was a brief, non-descript audio with no real description or breakdown on what Girlcraft actually was.
