Dubble Duck is a new UK based gift company who have 'taken off' with a 'flying start' by launching their very first project - THE CHILLINGO!

What exactly is a Chillingo? we hear you ask. Well of course it is a giant, inflatable, yet plush flamingo. Now that's simply FLAMAZING!

Gone are the days of the boring, dust-covered, bean filled bags that scream 'I was bought in the 80's and haven't moved since!' The ugly bean bags that took a level of precision and skill in order to position your derriere. It's time to step aside and take a sneaky beak at the giant cheeky Chillingo. It's Club Tropicana, it's kitsch, it's cerise, it's FLANOMENAL!

You need to take just one look inside your local shopping mall to be reminded just how trendy these long-legged beauties are. They are emblazoned on everything from sunglasses to cufflinks and have been championed by countless celebrities including, but not limited to the likes of Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus!

When asked about the idea behind The Chillingo, Dubble Duck's Director Hayley Grix responded:

"I personally adore Flamingos. How could you not?! I really wanted to create a larger than life flamingo that you could chill on whilst also being able to take it anywhere you wanted. After lots of sampling and prototyping we created the Chillingo you see here now.
To make sure it was portable we made the filling inflatable whilst keeping a cushioned seating area to maximise the comfort.
The fabric is custom made to ensure it’s washable and flame retardant, complete with a waterproof base for use outdoors. So you can chill and go!"

Dubble Duck have decided to launch their very first project via crowdfunding platform KICKSTARTER, that has helped many new companies get fresh, innovative products off the ground.

New to Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. People watch your product video and if they like what they see, they can pledge and be one of the first to receive it before it hits the shops! Backing a project is more than just pledging funds to a creator. It's pledging your support to a creative idea that you want to see exist.
Those who back Kickstarter projects are offered tangible rewards or experiences in exchange for their pledges. The company's stated mission is to "help bring creative projects to life" - quite literally with the CHILLINGO!

You are being given the chance to get your feathers on one of the very first limited number of Dubble Duck's Chillingo's. After all the early bird catches the worm!

My name is Hayley Grix and I am the Founder and Director of Dubble Duck Ltd!
After 5 years working in the gift industry I decided to set up my own unique gift and homewares company.

I thoroughly enjoy looking at what is on trend, what is out there that the public love and creating new, fun and visually stimulating product in order to receive the 'WOW' factor. I like designing products that scream 'You need me in your life!'.

My latest project is The Chillingo - a larger than life inflatable-plush flamingo!

Through Dubble Duck I will be launching quirky, yet practical gifts worldwide. I'm really looking forward to sharing the enthusiasm and flair with you, and thank you in advance for your support with my current and upcoming ventures.
