Back in 2006 we decided what we were really missing was a real proper moving Tail. So we built our first prototype, and started wearing it…
By 2012, with lots of people asking where they could get such a new limb, we launched our first Kickstarter, which funded the development of the first one hundred Tails! It was happily a success, and there really were lots of other people out there that wanted a controllable, super-expressive Tail behind them! So in 2015 we set up the Mechanical Tail Company, expanded the range of different Tails we make..
..and then we realised how increasingly inaccurate our name was! We had already started making all manner of gear – tails, tentacles, ears and even wings and horns (launching soon!) But hey, we will always be The Tail Company!
