Japanese Ring Puzzle journey: Tales to tell

Hi, this is Josh – the “lead” toy maker at Garage9. Since we aim to provide more informational and educational pieces of content on Garage9, this website is (on an other hand) an informal place where I can share some behind-the-scene stories behind the packaging, shipping, and making Japanese Ring Puzzle journey around the world.

Today, I will share with you some hilarious questions/event that we’ve been receiving since our first days running Garage9:

  2. Our setback on eBay
  3. Rainbow balls

… please note that I will update this post frequently to reflect our joyful journey with the Japanese Ring Puzzle.

1. Proof of existence

For your curiosity, yes we (Garage9) are 100% existing and growing fast. We are a mixed hotpot of cultures and races, working together under one roof to deliver joy to people around the globe.

Like most new sellers, we created a fresh eBay account to reach you toy lovers. The responses were really promising, and we hoped to increased our selling limits from 10 per month to 50. And we did.

However, after just a short period of time we received an account suspension email from eBay.

3. Rainbow Balls

At Garage9, we believe in equality. And we will dedicate this line of new products (the Rainbow Balls) to do just that.

Here is our prototype with the LGBT’s flag painted on as our attempts to foster equality. Beautiful right?

We are brainstorming about a proper name for this line of Japanese Ring Puzzles … You will know soon. I promise.
