Having designed and published the first Toys from the Toybox I had a lot of people giving me requests and ideas for a Part II. Two character stood out above all, elephant and donkey. Talk about being out of my comfort zone! I didn't have the first clue about designing a donkey!! But when I was designing Boris the Bunny I do remember "seeing" donkey on my first attempts, in fact one of my test knitters called her first attempt bunkey and still has him!!
Strangely this donkey came together really easily. The only fight I had was his ears, I wanted them to stand up straight and I wanted to achieve a baby donkey appearance.
