Hey, just thought I’d let you know, my nephew was given his mania today and loves it. Now I have a niece who wants one 😂 I suspect we will be in the market for a whale tail one very soon. There are two listed I like. She’s younger so the smaller one listed may be ideal. I’m gonna have to start hinting pretty hard to my sister I’d like one too 😂

Kia Ora Goina, The wait for the belt only enhanced the ecstasy of receiving this treasured ”Taonga”. Through adversary did the artistry of this craftsman shine – No~~Rei~~Ra~~, From the flowing Koru to the clean symmetrical lines & upstanding lettering to the Mighty Warrior “TOA“ infused with brilliant colourings…ake..ake.ake.
