Happy Pre Schoolers!

Happy Pre Schoolers!

Last year, a friend who had visited the workshop, showed our finger puppets to the director of the pre school where she worked in Australia.  The school director decided to buy a CK finger puppet for every student in the school as a present.  Below are a couple photo of one happy and very satisfied customer, Leo, enjoying his new Piggy...
Synchronized Swimming in Hong Kong

Synchronized Swimming in Hong Kong

Social media is awesome and we wouldn’t have half as many sales/fans/friends without it.  Story goes like this:  long lost friend that I took an introductory Japanese class with in Toronto in 2002 and who I lost contact with back in 2006 or 7 found me on LinkedIn.   Then we became friends on Facebook and I invited her to the CK fan page.  She thought CK was cool and passed it around to her friends.  One of her friends happens to travel to Cambodia for work from Hong Kong occasionally and sent the link around to more friends and then collected orders.   These he picked up back in August and then sent us these awesome photos from a satisfied customer (a mom-to-be). Love it!  I don’t think small businesses like ours would be able to succeed without the incredible access (free) we get through the Internet.  To be able to produce a small line of fairly made products in Cambodia and get them to people in far flung places is incredible. We’re so proud to be part of this welcome package for baby! Drying in the sun, with the HK hills in the background. They look like a synchronized swimming...

We love getting photos of our little critters in their new lives.  The following are taken by our friends in Amsterdam around the time of the World Cup (hence the flags).  FYI:  Yumi is our amazing designer, marketing guru, and all round adviser.  She makes us as cool as we are.

Monsters, loved by adults too

Monsters, loved by adults too

So you’ve seen lots of fan photos of children and their monster friends.  But adults also love our products too!  Below is proof that some monsters wind up in a more adult environment and the expectations on them are much different.  Olivia, for example, has found a new home here in Phnom Penh and is allowed to drink the occasional vodka martini.  Here she is, with her favourite bottle, Absolut...

We’re always happy and excited to get photos of monsters that have gone to live abroad. We received a lovely email from a satisfied customer in California yesterday, Sobeny, who recently ordered a small family of monsters for herself, her daughter and her granddaughter.  She writes: “I am sending you pictures of my grand-daughter “Aveah” in company of Greta and Daphne and Delila.  She absolutely adores Greta and takes her everywhere she goes; as you can see she even falls asleep on Greta.” She also sent a few photos and with her permission here they are: We love these and the knitters really enjoy seeing where their creations have ended up, especially if they bring joy to those who buy...
