The Story of Wayneston Bears - Celebrating Wayneston Bears 2nd Anniversary!

Uncle Wayne's long long story.......

Wayneston Bears was born on 17th April 2009 - the day which I created my first bear named Rosie. She is a bear which I made for myself on my 24th birthday (12th April) however I couldn't finish her on the same day... and I complete her the week after.

After making my first bear, I couldn't sleep for weeks because I am overwhelmed and excited. I hardly believe that I can create my own toy, a dream that I have been chasing since young. After making a few bears under the guidance of my mentor, I discovered the joy of bear making and was inspired to be a bear artist like him.

My real name isn't Wayne, this name is chosen because my chinese name have both initials "W & S",
eventually I have decided to name my creations "WayneSton" Bears. As I know I will be meeting many friends from all over the world, an English name will be appropriate for my friends to address me =)

On this special occasion I would like to thank my mentor, Emen Chen who taught me the art of bear making. I am very thankful for his encouragement, without him my dreams wouldn't fulfill and there will be no Wayneston Bears. THANK YOU TEACHER EMEN =) I hope you are reading this...

Last but not least, let's celebrate Wayneston Bears 2nd Anniversary! Weeee =)
