The Most Popular Perks of 2017 So Far

2017 has been a good year so far. It seems like every week, there’s a new electronic gadget, a well designed life-hack or a trendy hoodie that a clever entrepreneur thought of on Indiegogo. And thanks to the launch of our new categories, it’s now easier than ever to find the products you love. That said, there are a few products that reign over them all, proving to be the most popular with our backers this year. Stay tuned, as we will be showcasing the newest trending perks at the end of each month.

Some solve a real problem while others are just an ingenious idea: ranging from travel bags to spinners to building block tape, here is a countdown of the 10 most popular perks on Indiegogo of this year, so far:
