Keiki Kaukau’s line of toys, books and games includes wooden play food sets that feature everything from laulau and Spam musubi to shave ice and a little guava juice box.

April Hail, a mother and teacher from Mānoa, creates the sets, which serve as language learning tools and gateways to cultural discovery.
