Why is this Chuffed Worthy?
Weta Workshop is one of Chuffed’s most popular recipient choices. And we love have having this option which demonstrates and inspires people on how little old New Zealand can deliver on the world stage! So from our point of view – this is an exceptional experience. And the kids will love it!
