These beautiful wicker buggies are the perfect gift and keepsake toy for your child and allows them to take their favourite treasures wherever they go or fill it with new treasures from their local market!
Poland is well known around the world for quality, handmade wicker ware. This traditional craft that became popular back in 1800’s is still alive and well today, despite the number of specialist wicker craftsmen and women slowly decreasing.
It takes approximately 3 years to learn the basic skills of wicker work, and several more to master the more intricate and difficult styles, like the hood of our Lilu pram for example.
Each Lilu buggy is made entirely by hand using traditional tools and methods. The willow reeds are prepared by firstly cutting them, stripping the bark, soaking them in water for several days (the duration varies depending on the type of willow) and then boiling them for several hours - the boiling process helps protect the wicker from insects and gives it that beautiful golden colour. The stripped bark pieces can also be used for weaving baskets and other smaller items.
All of the paints are water based with no solvents added which means they're safe for your child and kind to the environment.
Available in a range of colours.

Maintenance & Care: Each wheel is secured with screws which can loosen overtime with use. Please check regularly, prior to play.

Be careful not to over-tighten them as this can prevent the wheels from turning properly and the screws from tightening thereafter.
