A letter from uGears, a Ukraine company

A letter from uGears, a Ukraine company

We are a huge fan of the superlative uGears wooden model range.  uGears are actually a Ukrainian company, and I want to share a letter from them that I've just received via the Australian distribution company. 

I can't even begin to imagine what they have had to endure over the past month.

 

Dear Partners,
 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank You for Your continued business and fruitful cooperation with Ugears.
 
As You know, Ukraine and the Ukrainian people are facing cruel attacks from Russia and it military forces. Too many Ukrainian civil citizens have suffered from these attacks and are facing hard times.
Ugears is an Ukrainian producer of a unique wooden mechanical models and 3D puzzles made of plywood. It is located in Horenka, Kyiv region, that suffered greatly from war actions.
In order to continue what has been started and to fulfill Your orders on Ugears models range, we do have a strong will to continue business, therefore based on Emergency plan we need some time to establish production in EU. Also we need funds to support Ugears’ staff (engineers, designers, warehouse staff etc.) in Ukraine.
 
Resulting from all of above, we kindly ask You to accept new price list for Ugears models that take affect starting APRIL 1st  2022. In the new price list Distributor’s prices increased of 10%.
We understand that this calculation may affect Your business model or margin, but we are forced to procced in this way in order to have competitive RRP prices to Ugears rivals.

Hoping for Your understanding and we truly appreciate Your dedication to UGEARS and we wish You to grow Your business and achieve Your goals!
 
Price list form will be sent shortly.
 
 
Best regards,
Your Ugears Sales Team

Gift Vouchers are now available online!!

Gift Vouchers are now available online!!

It has been a long wait, but we can finally offer Gift Vouchers as a webstore purchase!

We have always sold Gift Vouchers, of the old fashioned cardboard type.  The problem was, they didn't work on our webstore, and anything that we set up on the webstore wasn't recognised by our shop's retail system.  Until today.

The link has finally been implemented, and now our Gift Vouchers can be purchased either in-store or online, and also used for purchases either way!

And one other little tweak - we've decided to remove expiry dates completely.  So, like our Loyalty Points, from today onwards our Gift Vouchers will never expire, or at least not until we do (and we don't expect that to be any time soon.)

If you have an older Gift Voucher and would like to use it on our webstore, we might be able to fix that for you, so don't hesitate to contact Sales Support.

Powerballs!!

AutostartFusionPro

I'm delighted to announce that the Powerball® is coming to Brain Spice

Powerballs are essentially handheld gyroscopes, powered by... you!  Their clever design means that you can control their spin speed with just gentle hand movements.  And the faster they spin, the more they push back, thanks to the wiles of physics.  They feel strangely alive in your hand!  Many models also light up spectacularly - all with your own energy.  No batteries required.

Powerballs can hit speeds of 18000rpm and higher - faster than formula 1 engines!

Powerballs are fantastic for strengthening or rehabilitating your hand, wrist, arm or shoulder.  Whether you play an instrument or play a sport, a Powerball will help you.  If you have suffered an injury, the gentle isometric exercise of a Powerball has well documented benefits.  But they are also just plain fun, as you try to beat your own (and each other's) speed records!

There are many imitators, so please don't be caught out. I've chosen to stock the Powerball® brand because they are the finest quality products of their kind.  At the speeds that these things spin, you want something that is precisely engineered and built to last! 

First stock arrives tomorrow, hopefully....
