A fun traditional game to play with your tamariki.

Available in two Taniko patterns Pātiki and Nguru

Pātiki or pātikitiki is based on the lozenge or diamond shape of the flounder fish. This symbolises favourable times, generousity and abundant hospitality.

Ngaru The ngaru represents the ocean waves - the cutting of the waves as the waka travelled. Māori origin narratives explain the arrival of Māori to Aotearoa on waka (canoes).
