First Creation in 2016 - Meet Johnson the Monkey!

Happy New Year everyone!

We hope everyone had a wonderful time celebrating the New Year with your family and friends.

As you know, the Lunar new year for the Chinese falls on 8th February this year. This is the time we bid farewell to the year of goat and welcome the year of the Monkey!

Wayneston Bears first introduced our very first monkey creation in 2010 and it was well received.
Today we finally decided to remake and introduce a brand new monkey design to celebrate the year of Monkey.

"Meet Johnson the Monkey!" Johnson is 9 inches tall and is made from long dense tan coloured mohair. He has wire armatures on his limbs, spine and tail, these features makes him very flexible to pose. We have also specially handmade a crochet hat and scarf to accessorise him.

Johnson is now available for adoption on our website:

Thank you for your time and support! We are sure there are many more exciting events and creations to come!
Have a fantastic weekend! =)

Hugs, Wayne
