The creator of an animatronic singing Statute of Liberty model has now launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise production funds. Created by a student interested in animatronic technology and inspired by the Billy Bass Singing Fish of the 1990s, the toy is currently in Patent Pending status and awaits a working prototype to move to the manufacturing process.
The Singing Statute of Liberty performs a rendition of the national anthem while the torch lights up and the statute moves from side to side. Children and adults alike will enjoy the movement and music, especially as part of a patriotic celebration such as the Fourth of July. The toy will be crafted of quality material and feature a realistic appearance based on America’s famous Statue of Liberty in New York’s harbor.
The IndieGoGo campaign, located at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/animatronic-singing-statue-of-liberty#/, seeks a total of £650,000 in funding. About £200,000 of the total will be used to fund the perks for the 5,000 maximum toys if claimed. Each donor of at least £62 plus £5 shipping cost receives a pre-release Animatronic Statue in cooperation with the manufacturing company with a special thank you letter for their contributions.
The remainder of the money raised through the IndieGoGo campaign will be used to pay for similar animatronic development and research as well as start-up costs, including taxation in the United Kingdom, where the product is produced.
