Based around the legend of Mangatawa, a story about the formation of hills beside the Tauranga Moana. The 3 whales stacker is a beautiful solid wood set of toys which can be stacked and displayed together.

The Traditional Story:

Te Waiū-o-Te-Tohorā (the breast milk of the whale) is the name of a spring of white water associated with hills around Welcome Bay and Pāpāmoa in the Tauranga area. The hills represent a family of whales (mother, father and baby) that lost their way. After drinking from a magical spring at Karikari, they were all magically transformed into the ranges in this area.

Made from solid untreated pine and finished in child safe Resene colours they are a beautiful and enduring toy. The set will also come with an information card on the telling of the traditional story to aid parents and educators.
