Incredibly sculpted, hand-cast,
moulded and painted figurines.

Based on requests and demand from our customers (both in Africa and abroad), we have added a selection of figurines to our product range, which are perfect for clients with limited display space.

Our production process

Our range of figurines includes lifelike animal and tribal figures, as well as our “Fat Five” and “Cutie Collectables” ranges. All of our figurines have been designed, cast and intricately painted by hand by our team of talented artists. Our collection of figures range from more premium prices to more affordable prices, meaning there is a figurine for any budget! Given the small size of the figurines, they are a perfect product for retailers who have limited display space, and their attractiveness and charm mean high sales volumes and high return on investment. Our principles of beautiful design and high-quality production are what sets us apart from other suppliers in this price and product size range.

Animal Figurines

Three ranges of animal figurines provide you with a perfect selection of 25 different animal figurines for your shoppers to delight in, including large display animals, small animals in pouches, and a penguin figurine range.

All our figurines are originally sculpted in-house by our gifted South African artists, then hand-cast and moulded in polystone before being hand-painted.

Animal Collectables

We have two collections of ‘cute’ animal figurines which are sure to appeal to shoppers with a proclivity for the adorable, including a baby cutie animal collection, and a Fat Five animal collection.

These charming little figurines are also sculpted by hand before being cast, moulded and painted. These collectables are a high-volume gift seller, and our retail shop clients benefit from the fact that shoppers just can’t resist these cute animal figurines!

African Tribal Figurines

Our tribal figurines are realistic and stunning and make for a beautiful piece of display décor in homes and offices. Our designs include a large, small and mini range, as well as a number of variants with multiple figurines set on a beautiful base. Our figurines are inspired by the following tribes of Southern Africa: Zulu, Xhosa, Herero, Ndebele, Pedi and Khoisan. The figurines are originally sculpted in-house and then hand-casted and moulded in polystone before being painted by our team of gifted artists.

African Tribal Collectables

Our tribal collectables range makes for the perfect small gift for lovers of Africa and its cultures. Our tribal collectables range includes 2 groups of designs, namely baby tribal collectables, and ‘hits of Africa’. These adorable figurines are originally sculpted by hand before being hand-cast, moulded and hand-painted. These collectables are a high-volume seller with our retail shop clients benefiting from the fact that shoppers just can’t ignore these cute tribal figurines!
