Snuggly Sea Pod Penguin


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.  

Sea Pod Penguin is the consummate peacemaker and everybody's friend.  Penguin is well known for settling disputes about who gets to sleep where on the bed and can often be found near the computer working on a spreadsheet to schedule cuddle times.  Penguin is well behaved, and a very sharp dresser, so unlike the monkeys, you can take them anywhere.

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 Sea Pod collection was designed to bring awareness to climate change and ocean care.

    • Toys are best wiped clean, but can be washed in the washing machine. If machine washed, toys may require additional cuddles afterward

    • Due to the handmade nature of the toys, no two are exactly the same, and each one has its own unique personality and characteristics.  Chosen colour combinations may see the colours in a different order than shown.
