T-Lab is a Japanese company that makes handmade wooden products from selected natural materials. They created a range of adorable Pole Pole animals from around the world, from arctic polar bears to rainforest sloths. The pole pole animals are made from the wood of Albizia Falcata which is one of the quickest growing trees in East Asia. In Japan, it is also called "Nanyo Tung". In only 4 years the trees rapidly mature and start producing seeds. T-Lab is committed to replanting every tree used in its production process.

Each piece is hand-carved by a craftsman and painstakingly polished by their team of artisans. These handcrafted items are indeed very special and have their own unique facial expressions. 

These are the toys to be kept as a family heirloom.
