Funny story. After ordering the set I showed my wife the renders and told her I was happy I made my mind up. She asked me if the accents weren't bothering me. I mean, I've heard the discussions but never really paid any attention....
Long story short, I apparently can't differentiate between the mod/accent colors. I loled. She loled.

Thank you as always!

Looking alright as we head into the stagnation period that's is about mid way. Sales usually pace down significantly from this point until the final couple of days where there's usually a burst. Not so worried for base and deaccent, but the goal is - no child left behind.

Thank you for the support everyone! 🙏

have you talked to any vendors? I know when red riot was getting down to crunch time, a vendor bought out the last of the MOQ, is this possibly an option in the future?

also kicking myself for not ordering from the canadian vendor because i didnt see it lol

Same for me...
this set has such depth in its design / choice of color. Many many other sets maybe more "in your face" but are pretty much just more of the same.

It exists, but I can't track down where I got mine.  Tbh, it looks nice, but I never use it.  A cap puller with a round handle feels nicer to use, and the switch puller is too flimsy when the switches are tight in the plate.

I would just ship you mine but I live in the States.

You can get those pullers from aliexpress. I got mine from here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33000121002.html?spm=2114.13010708.0.0.33e44c4dpUFU7l . It's good for switch pulling but for keycaps there's way better options.

is there a reason that the line graph only goes up to 200? looks like we're still making good progress, but these are rookie numbers, we gotta pump those numbers up!  ;D

It's been growing exponentially. :)

You're right, we got to pick up the pace until the GB closes Friday next week! I am not so worried about the Base, Deaccent already made it!
Any purchase of a child kit is one step towards making it - I doubt we will reach MOQ on customer side for the remaining kits, but each purchase puts me in a better position in ensuring that everything is made despite not selling to MOQ.
 
Thank you for discussing Firefly in various places, just spreading awareness really helps boost sales and ensuring that it gets made! <3

You don't need to stop hoping. :) Each purchase will make it easier for me to get a kit made and increase its chances.

The first post in this thread lists the Numpad kit's price as $45.99 at Kono, but Kono is actually charging $37.99.  Anyone who was put off by the high numpad kit price might want to take another look at that.

Creeping up on the final 5 days! Thank you everyone so far for the support!

I can confidently say that the set will make it, but as of right now I can't say the same for every child kit.
If you're on the fence of ordering because a certain kit isn't doing too well - please purchase it. Every purchase towards MOQ will help us (even if it does not make it through sales), it'll put me in a better position to get it made.

Thank you again. :*
