New Zealand is very different to other countries. This special country has a multicultural population. Many many years ago Australia and New Zealand used to be connected, now it is isolated. Our kiwiana is special, important and unique to us.
Buzzy Bee is a very popular toy in New Zealand. This bee figure is very precious to the children in New Zealand. In the late 1930s the Buzzy Bee was invented in a small workshop which was in Auckland. The brightly coloured wooden pull along toy has been passed down from generation to generation and now it is a New Zealand icon.
The tiki (tikitiki) is a carved human figure made out of green stone also known as pounamu. But green stone isn’t the only object used, bones are also includes in the tiki. It was made by both Moari and Polynesians.
So I hope these facts have helped you find more about New Zealand. New Zealand has many treasures so maybe you can find out more. Thank you and GO ALL BLACKS!!!
