Little Critterz began years ago in the beautiful town of Bellagio, on Lake Como in northern Italy. Our founders discovered exquisite animal figurines in a small shop which they then sourced and further developed into the exquisite line you see today. And so Little Critterz was born. Our miniatures are crafted in the lush mountains and verdant plains of Thailand where people have cared for and loved animals since the beginning of their national story. Each figurine is hand crafted and hand painted by skilled artisans using brushes only a few hairs thick. Little Critterz product line has expanded to include Ornaments, Jewelry, Animal Patches, Animal Pins, and more on the way. The team at Little Critterz takes inspiration from the diversity of the animal world and delights in the wonderment both children and adults can feel when encountering the natural world for the first time; reminding us to protect of this planet’s amazing creatures. We take pride in sharing their stories so that we can protect these animals and their habitats. This wonderful planet and its creatures should be a heritage we can all admire and enjoy.
- PRODUCT DIMENSION: APPROXIMATELY 1.5 " x 1.7" or 3.8 cm x 4.5 cm (Height and Length ize varies by animal)
- CRAFTSMANSHIP OF FIGURINE: Little Critterz figurines are carefully and painstakingly crafted by our artisans. We use artist carvers to study and form each animal, followed by a mold making process focussed on how best the figurine will be represented. And finally we select and mix the best porcelain we can find, using specialized brushes in the application of the glaze and details.
- UNIQUE AND COLLECTIBLE DESIGN: Each Critter is unique- made by hand, baked in a kiln, and created for your pleasure. We celebrate the differences of each animal as we celebrate the differences between each of us. Our figurines are meant to be collectibles or gifts; celebrations of friendship, marvelling at the detail of the work, and enjoying the uniquness of each animal.
- DÉCOR: Create a diorama in your garden, terrarium, acquarium as you like. Or display them in your home as an accent piece, items to remind you of a time, place, friend, or marvel at the beauty. You can mix and match each animal to create your own animal kingdom.
- PACKAGING AND CARE & HANDLING OF THE PRODUCT: Each figurine comes in its own box, complete with a story card, and QR scan code. Each figurine arrives glued to a card. To separate the card from the animal you first dip the animal and the card in warm water and let the glue dissolve.. Use a soft cloth to gently clean the figurine. For best results use a lint free cloth. Never use any cleaning products that contain bleach or ammonia or abrasive components as these will damage your collectable.
