Meet the NEW MIHI RANGE of Pipi Mā!
This is Pipi and is a mighty 3 years old. She is brave and isn’t afraid to try new things. In fact she is always thinking of others and is the leader of the group. Pipi loves to sing, pūkana and swing the poi. In fact, she has poi and a song for you to sing along to. She also likes to draw moko on her chin.
The world’s first 100% Māori speaking dolls for children, created by a Māori speaking family here in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The three loveable dolls are Pipi, Hura, and Tītoki and they are on a mission to take the Māori language and its culture to a whole new level of COOL!
Coming in at a very cute 15cm they teach users basic Mihi (greetings, farewells, thank you etc) in the Māori language! The Mihi Range is also taking the Māori language to the World with a multilingual swing-tag translating each doll’s dialogue into Chinese, Japanese, German, Hawaiian and English!
IMPORTANT: The Mihi Range uses a cell battery and has been sewn shut. Batteries cannot be replaced.
