Rhino Inspiration

I have three beautiful granddaughters, all under the age of six. Each of them has a keen eye for the brightest colours and the most beautiful shapes. And like most children, my granddaughters never hold back when it comes to telling me what they love the most... Is it the snake? Is it the rhino’s thongs? Is it the rainbow? Or perhaps it’s the sun and the stars? That’s why I named my whimsical, child-friendly rhino ‘What’s Your Favourite?’.
