In Africa, homemade galimotos are fashioned by children out of anything from sticks to cornstalks, and can be vehicles of any sort. This ingeniously crafted “galimoto” push-toy bicycle rider is created from shaped wire wrapped around fabric by artisans of the Chuma Wires workshop based in the Dandora area of Nairobi, Kenya. Chuma Wires provides valuable work for artisans who have little or no other opportunities for employment in this marginal section of Kenya’s sprawling capital.

Approximately 24 inches long with handle
