Whimsical wooden animals from T-Lab have been around in Japan for over 10 years!

Polepole (poh-leh poh-leh) meaning slowly, slowly in Swahili describes how these little guys are created.

Each animal is hand carved from a soft light wood and then hand-painted with the sweetest expressions and patterns.

Due to their hand crafted nature, each polepole animal is slightly different.
