This is GUS by Chris Chatterton

Chris Chatterton takes his first step into the world of designer toys and boy what a way to make an entrance! Gus has that British look that’s for sure and judging from the photos looks top quality. Gus is a character from a series of published picture books that Chris has authored and illustrated check them out HERE. He is a grumpy dog who doesn’t like much of anything, but in the books, we learn he does have a softer side at times. Now from illusion comes the designer toy giving fans of new and old a different dimension to GUS! Now everyone can have a GUS to keep you company plus no need to pick up its doo doo. Hugs are still welcomed. Chris has now unleashed GUS into the big big world and looking for new homes.

How cool is Gus right? That unibrow and mood we swear are modelled on ourselves, HA. We hope to see more from Chris Chatterton in the near future.

Produced in resin. Limited Edition of 100pcs and GUS 15cm tall and Comes bagged in cutout foam and full-colour box.


PRICE: £55 Each
