Decorative wooden hippo. "Pole pole" means slowly, little by little, in Swahili. T-Lab is a Japanese maker committed to communicate the warmth of wood and handworking whilst preserving the forests. This wood can be well finished, smooth and soft, and the final product is very lightweight. Once it is finely sanded, it is hand painted, each piece is therefore somewhat different and absolutely unique ! Only high-skilled craftsmen can achieve this task to make almost identical results of the same animal.
The original design, round and soft, is really lovable. Will you be able to choose among those animals ?
CAUTION : These animals are decorative objects. It is not suitable for children who could put it in their mouth.
