When a product idea pops up on Kickstarter, it has many formidable obstacles in the road ahead. Will it find enough backers? If it does, will production go as planned? And when people actually get their hands on the product, will they like it?
The following products are the cream of the crop. They've overcome those obstacles and are continuing to impress more and more new customers.
1. Say goodbye to disastrous coffee spills with a mug that doesn’t tip over
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (75+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This is the perfect mug to have around electronics and we all are surrounded by these intolerant to water devices. The mug is fun to show others, but it really shines when you unintentionally bump it and it does not spill. Great product."
2. This wifi router will improve your internet speed and reliability
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (390+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Literally doubled my Router's download speed. I purchased this product because we have an existing router that's arguably fast but did not come with the premium price tag. I was curious to see what the price difference was about and was incredibly surprised when my standards were not only met but exceeded far beyond what I could have expected. I didn't know that downloading at 200mb/s from my home router was even possible."
3. Turn any bowl or cup into a storage container with a suction lid
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (60+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "My husband hates when his coffee cools off, so these lightweight lids are perfect. The heat suctions the lid to the cup providing a vacuum to keep contents hotter longer. I pop one in a baggie and keep it in my handbag for when we eat out and have had so many people ask "Where did you get that!" Buy 2 sets and make a friend!"
4. The Pyropet candle slowly reveals an inner beast
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (90+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This candle is so adorable. I found this candle when visiting Iceland and was completely enamored. The skeleton inside is such a neat idea, but the candle is so pretty that it's difficult to burn. Both my partner and I liked the candle so much that we bought it as a gift for two different people. It was a hit."
5. Every car should have this auto escape tool in the glove compartment
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (90+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Quality tool. Very reasonable price ! Purchased 2 tools. Tried it out on seatbelt material, cut like butter. I placed one in my truck and one in my wife's Honda. Fits the visor. Low profile, instant access. As a prepper, I find this tool to be well worth the money."
6. The Abraham Lincoln Penny Portrait is a patriotic pastime (pennies not included)
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (20+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Wow this thing looks awesome. The penny's have almost a holographic effect that respond to both the light level in the room and the angle of the viewer. Get yourself a helper, a pile of pennies and a bottle of wine and you're good to go!"
7. These underwear have a pocket so you can stash...whatever you’d like
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (90+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "My husband is going overseas and stopping at different port on his way to the Panama Canal. A friend from work that also travels suggested these so he could put his credit cards and ID when he is walking around in those towns. They fit perfectly and he loved them. Very useful. He has enough room to fit quite a few things without looking bulky."
8. Exploding Kittens is the most backed Kickstarter project ever - for good reason
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (6,100+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I got this game for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loved it. We play it all the time with our friends for game nights and almost all of our friends have loved it! It is simple and easy to learn but has enough strategy involved to keep it fun for college students and people both younger and older."
9. Stay sharp wherever you go with a wallet-sized comb
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (400+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Are you like me in that you hit the snooze button so often, that when you're halfway to work you realize you forgot to comb your hair? If so, this little comb will prove an invaluable tool. It fits very well in my wallet and has saved me from looking like a disheveled mess on more than one occasion. This thing is solid, yet lightweight, and worth the price even if you need to use it just once."
10. Leave dinner up to chance with Foodie Dice
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (80+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This is one of the best products I've ever had. Makes deciding on a meal plan so much easier. I toss the dice and do a grocery list. And the kids have a great time helping plan our dinners. Highly recommended if you're tired of trying to figure out what to make for family meals."
11. Impress your guests with spherical ice cubes
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Let me save you a lot of time. If you are looking for perfect spherical ice balls look no further, this really does make crystal clear balls if done correctly. This product hands down is superior to any other ice mold on the market!"
12. This hydration pack is perfect for any tolling exercise
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I just ran a Spartan race and was concerned about my Camelbak absorbing too much water and holding lots of mud while I ran. So I ordered this Dolfin Pack to use instead. Definitely the best decision I could have made. This pack is super comfortable and light. It fits securely and thanks to the neoprene, it did not chafe me in the least even when I was soaking wet. Since the straps are fitted using velcro instead of buckles, adjustments were easy and fast. Plus the pack did not shift as I drank the water."
13. This bottle insulator keeps your drink cold longer and prevents ‘bottle sweating’
Average rating: 4.8/5 stars (75+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "When I first saw this product on Shark Tank, I thought "another stoner selling another koozie." After seeing the product in action, I immediately when on my phone and purchased the Freaker. This thing is amazing. While yes, it is another koozie, the beauty of it is that it stretches to fit any bottle you have. And by any, I mean any."
14. This notebook was specially designed for creative professionals
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I hate jumping on bandwagon but I wanted to give this notebook a fair chance. I have to be honest the paper quality feels excellent. The cover feels and looks great. I love the stitched on decal. This notebook feels and looks premium. In an endless sea of black and neon colors this classy grey stands out."
15. Check out this bottle-opening silverware - because you can never have too many bottle openers
Average rating: 5.0/5 stars (15+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I missed the chance to back it on Kickstarter so I was happy to see it had become available. The weight is perfect, not too heavy or light. It also works as advertised."
16. Anyone (and we do mean anyone) can build their own computer with the Piper Computer Kit
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (90+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Bought this for a nine year old boy, and it was his favorite gift of the year. Easy to follow instructions that he was able to follow on his own with a format that kept up interest at all times. Excellent for teaching basic circuitry. If you want to show a kid that a computer isn't some magic box this is the toy for you! Well thought out components and software that leaves room for more advanced future development."
17. Cook healthy meals on a tight budget with this clever cookbook
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (420+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "If I could give this book 10 stars I would. I lost my job and needed to save money on food so I bought this book. The recipes are sooo delicious. I have not found a single one that's a dud. My husband and I both feel better since we cut way back on processed foods and increased our veggie intake due to this book. I'll never go back!!!"
18. The Quad Lock Bike Kit is the best solution for mounting your phone on your bike
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (870+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Where has this been all my life? What a great product. I did 50 miles today with it and was impressed! I'll never buy anything else. You get what you pay for and this was worth every penny."
19. Bring quality French pressed coffee with you wherever you go with this travel press
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (200+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I love this cup. I bought it so I didn't have to drink the machine coffee at work. We have hot water dispensers at work so making coffee is a snap with this cup. The filter works well and I never have any grounds in my coffee. It stays warm for hours and the cup is not hot to the touch. It is exactly what I was hoping for."
20. This snack bar is deliciously savory, unlike most overly sweet ones
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (40+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I have been enjoying these Savory wonderful delights since they made those debut! Savory Harvest snack bars are the perfect combination of natural healthy snacks that are satifying to enjoy without the guilt. The BBQ Cheddar is my favorite and is packed full of flavor. Perfect for the afternoon pick me up or to get you throu till you next meal."
21. Banana flour is a nutritious cooking alternative (or put it right in your morning smoothie)
Average rating: 4.3/5 stars (150+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I absolutely love this flour. I suffer from digestive issues and grains of all kinds are iffy when it comes to how I react to them. I had tried experimenting with almond and coconut flours but they (especially coconut flour) can be difficult to work with and sometimes yield a result with a texture that's just not what I'm looking for in baked goods. This flour creates a slightly dense but still fluffy and delicious result. It doesn't taste like bananas and takes on other flavors really well if you add them with mild generosity. AND it's high in resistant starch. Awesome prebiotic power for those looking to up the nutritional value of their food."
22. Veggie-Go’s are an effective way to get real nutrition on the go
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (80+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I LOVE these! I ordered the spinach and was devoted at first bite! I actually said, "Mmm, this is so good!" out loud upon trying it, and the people around me were looking at me, saying, "What?! Spinach?" I could probably eat the entire box in one day. Love how with just one strip you get 1/2 your daily serving of fruits and vegetables (meaning when I eat two in a day I know I don't need to worry if I've eaten enough vegetables during the day)."
23. These tasty tea crystals dissolve in seconds
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (160+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "After hearing from a friend about Pique's tea crystals, i decided to give it a shot. First and foremost, the quality of the tea is top-notch. The flavor profile, depth and taste of the tea is excellent and as good if not better than any premium tea ive had anywhere. On top of that, the fact that the tea is so easy to prepare, makes this a no brainer. Not having to deal with strainers and used tea leaves, makes this great for anyone on the go."
24. Eliminate cord clutter forever with magnetic keeper cables
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (40+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Brilliant! This is one of those "easy" things that you wonder why it hasn't existed before. For me the best part is that they stay on the cords so I don't have to keep finding them and there is no Velcro attaching to everything."
25. Make your own beer (you know you want to) with Pico
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (40+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "The setup took about 15 minutes. The brew process was approximately 2 hours. The toughest part was waiting the five days for the beer to ferment (I waited an extra day thinking aging would help flavor). Proper carbonation takes another 36 hours so it really takes one week to brew, ferment, and have it ready for tasting. I gathered the family around last night and we all sampled the beer. The beer tasted great! The accolades from family and friends that this tasted like store bought beer was even better for my ego."
26. Take professional quality product images from home with SHOTBOX
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (30+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Very impressed with thing. I'm still learning some tricks, as I'm not really a pro-photographer but it's pretty dummy proof. I use it for both over-head shots of my products and also angled shots with the backdrop and Sideshot. They've kind of thought of everything....it really is "all-inclusive"."
27. Upgrade your pantry with these food storage / measuring containers
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "So these work really well so far! I have one with rice and the other with granola. They seem to seal pretty tight so I feel comfortable turning them to the side and shaking ingredients into the lid for easy measurement and the plastic that is used is really thick/sturdy. You are able to control size of the opening that leads to the lid so that less/more falls into it. When you open the lid there is a plastic piece that covers the opening that leads to the main canister, so only the amount measured comes out (this works really well)."
