Since crowdfunding juggernaut Kickstarter debuted in 2009, it’s been a launchpad for over 100,000 different products — from home objects to electronics to apparel to books. To help us make sense of it all (and, of course, find the coolest things to buy), we asked the people who know it best — the employees of Kickstarter — what they consider the top Kickstarter-funded (or, “Kickstarted”) products you can buy online.
“An elegant, geometric cat candle that reveals a creepy little cat skeleton once the wax melts.” — Marissa D., product at Kickstarter
“Cute, colorful ceramics that would be great as vases or nesting dishes — with a melty look.” — Glory E., outreach at Kickstarter
“A geeky line of cocktail gear that uses lab-style beakers (it’s got the curled lip and spout and measuring lines) as rocks glasses. Good for everyday use, or for mixing drinks right in the glass.” — David G., communications at Kickstarter
“A children’s activity and picture book that will teach your little one how to code. Great for kids, but I’ve always wanted to learn how to code, so helpful for me, too.” — Marissa D., product at Kickstarter
“Modern cat houses for fancy cats.” — Lena I., executive at Kickstarter
