HAN NING: "Look back to 2017 , which was a pleasant year. Harvested a lot, was surprised a lot. The most triumphant moment was the exhibition in Beijing Toy show, where my toys were greatly received by many people, and we experienced great sales as well!"
HAN NING: "The most disappointed was the production of
- Angela & Derek, because of my high quality requirements, the former factory politely refused to continue producing these editions, so I had to look for a new factory, and yet they could not meet my requirements. There was no suitable factory at that time, so I ended up needing to took more than two months to complete these 200 pieces by myself. Including polishing, coloring, assembling ... so many details. However I felt gratified when the buyers got back to me and they liked them."
