Very Lively Sculpture

Our daughter loved the Hairy McLary stories. Even if you're not a New Zealander, and particularly if you have young kids, this sculpture on the Tauranga waterfront is well worth a visit.

Hairy McClary.

Grandson loved climbing over , on and around the dogs. He is a bit too young to know the characters but he will certainly be introduced to them.

These bronze statues of the characters from Hairy Maclary are a great place to visit right by the water.

On the main Strand and easy to find. Worth a look at if you are passing by. Right by the ocean. Take a photo

Lovely set of friends

Situated on the waterfront in Tauranga these well behaved pets get plenty of attention! I personally think they are a great idea and they certainly bring a smile to your face. I do recognise a couple of others from my granddaughters books - Hercules Morse and Bitzer Maloney.

The sculptures inspired us to buy the books. Our grandchildren love the books and enjoy seeing pictures of us with the sculpture characters.
