We've been hard at work behind the scenes the past year preparing to bring you a whole new product collection: the SlideAway®!
Featuring two storage baskets and mini options, style meets unparalleled functionality in the SlideAway Collection. Designed and perfected by our founders, Adam & Dana Sue Hinkle, they sought to find a resolution for their five kids' toys that constantly scatter the floors. Trust us when we say that the SlideAway Collection is revolutionary toy storage.
No ordinary basket, this is the toy storage solution you've been dreaming of! Featuring a built-in rimmed play mat that doubles as a play area for sorting toys, simply tip the basket and slide the toys in and out. It's as easy as Tip, Play, SlideAway.
This high quality, sturdy storage basket is perfect for storing toys such as LEGOs, Magnatiles, Hot Wheels cars, Barbie dolls and more! Sturdy, stylish fabric and rope handles make it a modern addition to any living space.
A built-in play mat allows toys to be spread out for play time and keeps them contained in one space. Simply use the handles to slide the toys from the sorting mat back into the basket.
Constructed out of high-quality, sturdy fabric with stylish rope handles, the SlideAway is an instant stylish addition to any home. It is available in both solid grey and grey and white stripe.
Play on-the-go has never been so easy! Take LEGOs, crayons, Hot Wheels cars, snacks and more for portable play with our mini SlideAway.
Simply tip the toys out on the tabletop, play, and when finished just slide toys back into the bag and close it all up with the drawstring closure. The rimmed play mat means toys actually stay on the tabletop and allows multiple children to access them at once.
Gone are the days of digging for LEGOs and crayons at the bottom of your bag; toys stay safe and secure thanks to the drawstring closure. Constructed with a wipeable material it really is an essential diaper bag must-have for the mom on-the-go!
The Mini SlideAway is available in two color options: grey triangle or grey and white stripe.
You might be thinking, "this is awesome ... how do I get my own SlideAway!?" The SlideAway will be available for pre-order as part of a KickStarter campaign launching Tuesday, May 7. New to Kickstarter? Us too! This is the first Kickstarter campaign Creative QT has participated in.
Watch this quick video to get the ins and outs of why we're doing a Kickstarter and how it works.
What is a Kickstarter?
"Kickstarter's stated mission is to "help bring creative projects to life." Kickstarter has reportedly received more than $4 billion in pledges from 15.5 million backers to fund 257,000 creative projects, such as films, music, stage shows, comics, journalism, video games, technology and food-related projects."
Kickstarter is crowdfunding at it's finest! Essentially, a pledge (or backing as it's often called) for a campaign acts as a pre-order for the product. The money pledged during the month-long campaign helps raise the capital needed to cover production costs and bring the product life. Therefore, there is a few months wait from the date of pledge and arrival of the product.
How To Back Us On KickStarter
Once the KickStarter campaign is live on Tuesday, May 7th you'll be able to sign-on and pledge for your own SlideAways. Whether you'd like just one SlideAway or the entire collection there will be early bird pricing and discounts available for KickStarter backers.
Think of your pledge to the KickStarter campaign as a pre-order. Once the campaign has ended, our team will follow-up with you directly to confirm which pattern option you'd like in both the SlideAway Basket and Mini SlideAway.
All orders placed via KickStarter will arrive in a few months time, by September, guaranteed. Trust us when we say that it's worth the wait!

Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
