Three Two One. Let's Go.

Hahaha! Well The King Kongery is back in full swing! I was hoping to make a bigger splash but that's a bit tougher than previously expected. It's alright though! Here we go!

So I would like to invite you all to see what I've been working on. If you had previously joined my Facebook group you may have noticed one of the random pictures I had uploaded a while back was a little cyclop tripod toy.





I loved it so much that I decided it was necessary to make more. And more and more. I don't have dozens yet... but a few now. You'll notice the only real difference is the eye from the first one and the final version.










Direct from my Etsy shop since I'm too lazy to type up something different:

Here in the King Kongery you'll encounter many different and interesting creatures...

However none are as friendly or as mischievous as the Morbishims. Born from the Morbishode plant but not yet fully grown into a Morbisham, the Morbishim is still an adolescent and craves attention.


They can be found all over the King Kongery, in the jungles, by the rivers, on the mountains and the beaches. They often travel in groups in search of adventure.


There's always another tree to climb and another hole to dig. They'll hide in the branches or in the bushes awaiting an unsuspecting passerby. Then the Morbishim will leap out onto the victim's head and sit very still... pretending to be a hat. It's one of their favorite games and you most likely won't even notice until you hear their hushed chuckles.


Because of all their playing the Morbishims tire themselves out quite quickly. But a short nap and a bite of a snack is just enough to get them going again! They do love the Perchubim fruit but if you don't have any... I hear Oreos do just fine.


This particular Morbishim is awaiting a new home! And in search of a new friend! I'm sure it wouldn't mind a name also. It's just about 5 inches wide, 5 inches long, 5 inches tall (not including it's horns), and entirely hand sewn.


Quick note! Some of my Morbis aren't entirely hand sewn!! That's right I've also started using a sewing machine to work on some of these guys. I'm still not a master at the sewing machine but I use it well enough to make a fine quality toy! It definitely cuts my work time down to only a couple hours instead of the 4-5 hours it takes to hand sew everything.

But still sometimes I prefer to handsew my toys. I feel like it keeps me real close to my creation. Like the sewing machine is a step away from working directly on my toys. I think anybody who's ever dedicated their time to creating something or anything knows what I mean.

Just a Morbi team building exercise...

In other news I've got plans for a slightly redesigned Roundbottom toy, every one of those is of course One of a Kind. But I'm also trying to decide what else to work on. My Noodle Ladies were popular and I still very much liked my MiMos but they're still in need for a redesign in my opinion. In case you don't remember what they look like:

Noodle Ladies

MiMo

So there's a bit of insight into my work I suppose... But just in case all this wasn't enough... For the few people who do check out my blog I'll let you all in on a quick peek at what else I'm working on. The world's very FIRST look at a very grown up sort of Morbishim.

Why it's the Morbisham of course! Check out that mighty mustache! And apparently those horns can grow into antlers! Who knew?! Hahaha, You can probably expect them to show up in my Etsy shop in about a week.... once I make some more... Cause this one's mine. I may have named him Rockwell.

Yes...

And as always check out my Flickr for more pictures!

But even more always make sure to drop by my Etsy Shop! THE KING KONGERY!
