Snuggle Lion



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.  

Snuggle Lions does his best to live up to his reputation as 'King of the Jungle', however seeing as he hates water, spends most of his day sleeping and is more of a pussy cat, we kind of think he should apply for the position of 'King of the sofa'.  Snuggle Lion's gentle nature makes him an excellent companion and he only gets grumpy when he has to have a bath, at which point he absolutely requires a few more cuddles than some of the other snuggle toys.

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

The snuggle collection represents respect and love for all animals and their right to peacefully share our planet with us.
