Chicatai is a writer who believes that everything starts with genius music and that is why the first tunes are of great importance in our lives. We create musical toys with melodies by Gia Kancheli. All of our toy animals, birds or aquatic creatures – we make friends, care for, protect nature and its inhabitants – are the driving force behind Chicago.
The products are handmade in Georgia and are created from ecologically clean, anti-allergic, certified materials. All models are tested in a special laboratory in accordance with the European standard of toy safety.
