Mama loves “Kew”! Kew is 20cm tall, wears the Sticky Rice team shirt, and is the cutest and cuddliest buddy you’ll ever have. Kew is expected to arrive at the end of Q2 2021 and will be AED 100.
Everyone knows how much Mama loved her cute yellow duckies, especially her favorite mascot and sidekick “Kew”. I worked very closely with her for the past few months on creating and designing a new version of Kew that she honestly loved the most.
