Krazy Kritters

In July 2007, Gerry Bowman started a Hagen-Renaker club for children on her website, Little-Shoppe. The club, called Kid’s Korner, offered free membership for children ages 12 and under, and featured regular special runs of “Krazy Kritters,” tiny Miniatures decorated in bright fantasy colors and available exclusively to members. Kid’s Korner also included online games and a “Wish List” feature for children to keep track of their wants in Hagen-Renaker. Gerry frequently packed a little freebie in with the children’s orders, and also sent Hagen-Renaker Miniatures as Christmas gifts to her Kid’s Korner members.

Kid’s Korner continued for four years. The Krazy Kritters were produced in runs of 50 each, with a new piece released monthly. In the last year, 2010, this slowed to every three months. The club ended after 2010 due to Gerry Bowman’s illness; Little-Shoppe continued to sell the remaining Krazy Kritters until the stock was depleted.
