Fishballs, kwek-kwek, and squid balls. It’s difficult to enumerate Philippines’ iconic street food without going hungry. These simple snacks are simple joys and reminders of simple times. But despite its simplicity, these treats are a mark of the Filipino’s rich culture. And to immortalize our beloved street food, a local online toy store made them into witty and cute plushies.

But there’s more to Takaw Toys than just being cute and witty. In fact, you can actually play with its toys. You can pull Kweenie and Isawdora pieces from their sticks, detach Betty's scoops from their cones, or separate Pinky’s toppings from the cup. The plushies can be the perfect gifts to someone who loves street food, to a friend from abroad, or to toddlers as a fun learning experience since Takaw toys are interactive as much as they are cute.
