What we are (secretly) working on

We are working on other projects including new elePHPants and other plush toys, that we will unveal in the next few weeks. Follow us to receive our updates.

What we can do for you

Whether you are a private company, a usergroup or running an Open Source project, we can help you to:

  • Create your own Customized elePHPant: PHP community is mad about elePHPants. Create yours and join the club of famous companies and usergroups who have their own elePHpant.
  • Create your plush mascot: We can turn your existing logo into a cute and priceless plush toy.
  • Create your logo: Have the elePHPant inventor to create your logo sounds cool? Get in touch with us and we will work on your project.
  • Create any kind of goodies: OpenGoodies can help you to design and make any kind of goodies (shape, matter, size...).

Why create a plush toy?

  • High-value gift: Compared to pens and stickers, a customized plush toy is considered as a higher quality goody and proudly kept.
  • Strengthen your community reach: owning such an object reinforces your community.
  • Long lasting: People keep it for years, they don’t lose it or throw it away.
  • Highly visible: Ever visited an office full of PHP developers? What do they proudly show on their desks or riding their display? An elePHPant!
  • It’s a social media world! People just love to receive an original and quality goodie, they take pictures and communicate A LOT about it.

Le petit plus: OpenGoodies has decided to give back 10% of its profits to the Open Source community by funding an OSS project and/or a usergroup.
