You Spoke, We Listened!
Posted on August 01 2012
We launched Lollacup in 2011 with 3 gender-neutral colors: bold red, good green, and happy orange. As the months passed, we added 2 more gender-neutral colors: proud purple and bad black.
After our fan base grew substantially, thanks in large part to Shark Tank, we began to get a rather large number of requests to make a pink and blue lollacup. Our customers are what make our business and company, so we couldn't ignore the pleas.
Choosing colors is not an easy feat. If any of you have flipped through a Pantone book, you know what I mean. There must be 30+ shades of pink, and committing to one is quite difficult. Well, after months of staring at color chips and sampling various shades of pink and blue, we are proud to announce 2 new additions to the lollacup family.
Please welcome posh pink and brave blue. These new colors will be available when we are no longer backordered (we are hoping for September 1st).
p.s. We are discontinuing proud purple, but bad black will be available in limited quantities.
Katy, first, we are always happy to replace broken/defective parts, so please email us at email@example.com and we’ll take care of your cracked parts. Also, we have an email waitlist going…do you want to be added to it?
I’m on the lookout to order more when you are not backed up. We are using one good one and one cracked one to hold us over. My daughter was too rough with it, not the cup’s fault. Let us know when you are back in the full swing of shipping them out!
Thanks for the encouraging words!
We did make a few minor design changes. I say minor because to the everyday consumer, the cup will not look any different. We just re-engineered the hinges and the “feathers” to be more durable.
That’s cool. I love how your share your process with us. I know first hand that staring at Pantone colors and making a decision is not an easy feat. I watched your episode on Shark Tank and then I started noticing a few of our friends carrying around your cups as well. They love em. Keep up the good work, lollacup!
Will you be making any other design changes or just adding the new colors? Either way I can’t wait to buy another one.
Please add me too! The feathers/ear pieces cracked off after too many drops from the highchair, so I can’t wait to order another one especially since you have made the cup more durable. Yay Lollacup!
Can I please be added to the waiting list?
done! we’ll be in touch soon.
I would love to be added to. I constantly washing the one that I have and can’t wait to buy a couple more. Thank you!!!
I would like to be added to the wait list too, please.
Thanks….You’ve been added.
Please add me to the waiting list. I’ve been trying to watch for production to be up & going again so I can order a couple of these. Thanks!
I think we are on schedule for you to be able to have one for his birthday….
Please add me to the list as well. I can not wait till they are back up. I have been hoping to order one for months. I would love one for my sons first birthday on sept 20th so I am hoping to get a cup by then if possible :)
Marisa, I will definitely add your name to the waitlist, but in the meantime, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org because we are always happy to replace broken/defective parts.
I’d love to be added to the waiting list, too, please!
Please add me to the wait list as well, our one and only lollacup is not enough:)
Awesome! I am excited!
I was one of the customers whose order was refunded due to back log..Please keep me on list.
