Launch day!

We've all been anxiously awaiting the release of our much-anticipated and groundbreaking Freckle 1.0, the first release milestone for the Freckle product family. As many of you already know, we had to push back our initial release timeline by a few days in order to ensure full product readiness at launch. But, after a 20-hour final production push to bring the Freckle to market, I'm glad to say that the wait is over.

We are now pleased to announce that the Gold Release Candidate of the Freckle 1.0 product has passed final approval and is in full production! In our previous announcement, we promised to reveal the final naming decision at launch, so allow me to introduce to you our pride and joy: Eleanor Quinn Welch
Fresh off the production line

We've been working on the Eleanor for quite some time, and we're quite pleased with the specifications of the final product:

  • Length: 20 inches
  • Weight: 8 pounds 7 ounces
  • Hands 2
  • Feet: 2
  • Fingers: 10
  • Toes: 10

But what, you may ask, differentiates the Eleanor from any other similar product on the market? Take a look at some of these advanced features we've included:

  • Blue eyes
  • Sandy hair
  • Nommable toes
  • Pinchable cheeks
  • Enhanced lung capacity
  • And a face like Winston Churchill himself!

Not only that, but we already have a series of updates planned and in development, which will be released over time. Features such as crawling, walking, and talking will be added over time, and those are only a few of the surprises in store.

Of course, as with any new product release, we're anticipating our fair share of core dumps, memory leaks, debugging, and other post-launch activity which will lead to many late hours and sleepless nights, but we will remain committed to making the Eleanor the absolute best product in her class.

We know you're all just as excited to get your hands on the Eleanor as we have been, but supplies are very limited. One thing's for certain - when the Eleanor is available in your area, don't miss your chance to experience how awesome she is.


  1. With a tech-savvy crew like that, the Eleanor can't help but be a success!

  2. As sole carrier for the Freckle project, and co-creator, I'd like to make one small correction. The "final production push" was actually 26 hrs 5 minutes and involved no actually pushing. Extraction came in the modified "toast" style, leaving a very lovely souvienir scar that is available for veiwing by creators only.
