EMOK MAMOKI

HiYa! I am EMOK MAMOKI - unique double sided soft toy. I am made with organic cotton and hypoallergenic stuffing which gives you extra soft feeling. I am like 2in1. On one side I am a nice kid.

Minimals

Minimals are an adorable line of modular animals characterized by the use of primary color palette and geometric shapes. The name derives, at a time, from the word "Minimalism" and the contraction of "Mini-Animals".

Together, they create a pantone of colors, animals, clothes and archetypes, encouraging people to choose the character they identify themselves with.

Rocking Zebra

Children love this frisky rocking toy, whilst the contemporary look, funky graphics and natural wood, are real eye-catchers in the modern home.
