Push Elephant

Our little elephant wiggles if you push his base and since you’ll eventually get bored by that he’s also fantastically looking on a shelf, a desk or a Lancia HF dashboard.

Push puppets were invented by the Swiss Walther Kourt Walss in 1926 who produced them in the Ticino region under his Wakouwa brand before moving production to the Ore Mountains, where our wood carver makes them since 1954 in the third generation.

The Traveler’s Backgammon

Backgammon is believed to have originated at around 3’000 B.C. in Mesopotamia and is the oldest known recorded game in history. It’s popularity increased again in the 1960’s due to the efforts of Prince Alexis Obelensky who organized the first Official Backgammon World Championships in the Bahamas, the winning of which became backgammon’s highest honour.
Our traveler’s version designed for Pelikamo is rollable and entirely handmade in Switzerland of heavy canvas and beech wood with brass details. At an unfolded 44x55cm it’s perfect for a serious game whilst still being easier to pack than traditional cases.

— Swiss Made
— Beech wood & canvas
— 8x65cm rolled
