Little Ndaba creates toys with a mission.

Groups of women from Zambia gather to knit and crochet adorable cuddly stuffed toys, providing a vital source of income for rural women while raising awareness for at risk species conservation. These artisan handmade toys are certified child friendly, made with 100% African cotton and stuffed with locally sourced acrylic by-product.  

We are so happy to have Manzi Sea Pod Polar Bear as part of our collection... We love that a bear found in Canada can be made by artisans in South Africa and help contribute to the conservation of species both here and there.  Polar Bear is an ever so cuddly and friendly bear.  Seeing as there is not much that they won't eat, they appear to be happiest in the kitchen when not snuggled up on the bed sleeping.  Unlike so many bears, they love winter and outdoor activities, but are equally happy to cuddle up next to the fire for Après-ski. 

Little Ndaba makes contributions back to species protection with each purchase and MisHMasH donates 10% of the purchase price from each Manzi Sea Pod toy back to marine conservation efforts in Canada.  Please refer to Philanthropy page for additional information.

The word Manzi means 'water' in Zambia, and the Manzi Sea Pod collection was designed to bring awareness to climate change and ocean care.
