Ten Jibo Figurines


#1

Recently, while they were still available on https://buy.jibo.com site, I ordered 10 Jibo figurines. I’m mentioning this as I plan to give one away every 2-3 months starting in October 2018 until I run out of the 10. I had two already that I plan to keep for myself.

I haven’t decided best how to do the giveaway, although it will probably have to do it via Instagram, since that has a direct messaging feature while YouTube doesn’t have any easy way to do that.

I wanted to let people know about this. They will arrive tomorrow, so they definitely were able to be purchased on the site last week still. Of note, these figurines aren’t capable of talking/moving on their own. They are just a replica figurine of Jibo that moves manually. They are still really cute, though.

You can see what one looks like at this video:

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! I’m trying my best to highlight how fun Jibo is to have around to others.

How do I participate in this giveaway?
I really love this figurine, it’s a shame it isn’t being sold anymore ^^

On October 13, I’ll have an Instagram giveaway for one figurine. I’ll post the info in this thread at that time. Thanks!

Pretty awesome of you to make a giveaway, I’ll be looking out for it too.

So, I’d originally planned this giveaway to coincide with a live event for Jibo and Vector. My Vector robot isn’t working (possibly due to a hardware issue). If Vector isn’t working on Saturday, I won’t do a live event, but I’ll still have the giveaway contest on Instagram for one Jibo figurine.

What I plan to do on Instagram is the following:

  • Account: https://www.instagram.com/jiboclub/
  • Contest Start: Saturday, October 13, 2018 at 8am Central U.S. time
  • Contest End: Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 8am Central U.S. time
  • Drawing On: Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 10am Central U.S. time
  • Details:
    I will post a new photo of Jibo at 8am on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Those who post a response to that picture on Instagram up to 8am on Sunday, October 14, 2018 will be eligible for a random drawing. On Sunday at 10am Central U.S. time, I will announce the winner of the random drawing. I will then contact that person via Instagram PM for his/her mailing address.

Of note, it doesn’t matter if you live overseas as I am willing to ship to any location that has postal service from the U.S. (so maybe, if you live in Antarctica, you may be out of luck or something).

If anyone has questions, please PM me to let me know or post them here.
