How to distract your children until the Targimals arrive

Waiting is hard. We know. We’ve been waiting since June 19 for our project to attract enough pre-orders and fund already! (83% funded as of 5 p.m. today!) But for children, waiting is for the Targimals to arrive is … an opportunity! To be creative! We’ve been distracting our own kids and friends with activities…

Sneak peek at The Book: How Targimals find their human

As some of our friends and fans know, the genesis of Forge of Honor was bedtime stories creator Dale Taylor told to his daughter. Those remain mostly unwritten but contained inside Dale’s head. Yes, there are books in Forge of Honor’s future and hopefully, a successful Kickstarter campaign means we can proceed. Dale and his…

Scenes from behind the scenes of the Egg Battle

Okay, the Forge of Honor Dating Game was a joke. Hopefully you laughed a little. And no, no one bit.

New prototype: Forge of Honor 2-in-1 Sword Holder!

And now a post from the toy-creator himself: Dale Taylor! Do real men sew? I won’t answer that.

Nevertheless, I persevered and sewed up a workable prototype sturdy enough to…

Forge of Honor’s cool, crowdfunding campaign posters post

When an artist puts his stuff out there and especially on a crowdfunding site, he gets anxious. Doesn’t sleep much. Can’t stop refreshing the page to see if there are more supporters (no, no, no, no, no, yes!). This is how Forge of Honor’s creator Dale Taylor deals with this stress: Tweaks photos with funny…

Here’s your first look at all 6 swords & shields

If you haven’t noticed, each of the six Forge of Honor Bordor Blades and Bordor Shields have a unique shape, color and design. Lots of the wee ones (mostly boys) love the green or red swords. And the lasses, they prefer the pink ones (hmmm….) Only three colors of Bordor Blades have been made along…
