Pole-pole (poh-leh poh-leh) meaning slowly, slowly in Swahili. This perfectly describes how each of these creatures are made by Japanese brand, T-Lab.
T-Lab manufactures wooden toys, handmade with a sense of warmth and individuality. The craftsman make each piece by hand, carefully sanding and smoothing each curve. Each animal is hand carved from a soft light wood and then hand-painted with adorable facial expressions and detail.
Due to their hand crafted nature, each pole-pole animal is slightly different. These whimsical wooden animals have been around in Japan for over 10 years and perfect for all ages.
