About
Princess planet  is a new brand of children’s entertainment. We promote princess characters with diverse hair textures, skin tones, and cultural backgrounds.

Our Goal

Our goal is to purchase the supplies needed to begin selling two story books, a coloring book, and clothing line by the holiday season. Our ultimate goal is to have the software application finished by the end of this year, and the doll and accessory lines. Once we have the backing there are many directions we can go with this brand to ensure our children have diverse characters to look up to. We also plan to launch more books next year that elaborate on each character and location. If you are interested in our products we need to hear from you now. This campaign will tell us if "The People" support our cause to make sure children have culturally diverse and positive content. If this is a success we also have plans for a brand with positive, culturally diverse male characters for children to follow.

Milestones

Milestone One is Completed!!! We've reached our first milestone; over 15% funded!!! We are now able to print the books Princess Planet Vol. 1. This means that everyone who donates $25 or more is guaranteed Book 1. Thank you everyone who has supported us. Please continue to spread the word.

Milestone Two is Completed!!! We've reached our second milestone; over 30% funded!!! We are now able to print the books Princess Planet Vol. 2. This means that everyone who donates $50 or more is guaranteed Book 1 & Book 2. Thank you everyone who has supported us.

Milestone Three is Completed!!! We've reached our third milestone; over 45% funded!!! We are now able to print the coloring book.

Milestone Five: 70% funding will allow us to manufacture T-shirts, nightgowns, and onesies.

Milestone Six: 100% funding will allow us to finish our first Android and iOS software App. Everyone who makes any donation will receive a complimentary copy of the App.


What your backing will go towards
All donated funds will go towards purchasing the supplies needed to produce and sell the books and clothes during this holiday season season. Items will be sold online at the Princess Planet website, at family owned book and clothing stores, and at popup shops in Washington DC, NY and Boston. For the last year and a half we’ve have been developing this brand. The book and clothing development is complete, but we need your support to buy the materials to mass produce and market these items. If we are successful in obtaining the materials we can start selling, become self-reliant, and continue the work of creating more content and Princess Planet products for our children.

-The top contributor will also get to choose where the next Princess we develop is from.


Highlights
-Help us decrease children’s insecurities and give all children the option to see themselves in the “princess” content they already love.
-The imagery will immerse children into the characters, and the content will both educate and amuse. Our book and clothing lines are something children and parents will equally love.
-We offer a different spin on what it means to be a princess, by giving our children an alternative view on a princess’ image and values.
With the success of our book and clothing lines Princess Planet  plans to launch multiple forms of affordable entertainment and toys to positively affect your children’s cultural and educational development.
-We offer a whole line of culturally diverse characters that will just continue to grow.
-We launch with 16 original characters from all over the world, created by authentic woman from each region. We plan to add new characters and stories annually with your support.

Why this is important
The current market does not do enough to show the world’s diversity or even the United States’ diversity in their products. If this doesn’t end, children will continue to grow up disparaging their skin, hair and features, and will in turn lack confidence. Princess Planet  helps to increase cultural pride, inner beauty and self-worth. This is also a great way to explore other cultures and teach acceptance.
