Description

The Miniature Tricycle

The Miniature Tricycle is a replica of the motorized tricycle.  The most widely utilized, universally present mode of short-distance public transportation in the Philippines, especially in rural provinces, small cities and towns. While they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, the roomy, comfortable form of “trike” common in Negros Oriental is generally considered to be one of best-looking and most useful designs. They can be found in their greatest numbers in Dumaguete City, the capital of the province.

Created by local artist Andy Villaruel, our intricately crafted tricycle miniatures are extremely accurate, exquisitely detailed replicas, and are already a highly favored and popular souvenir item with both domestic and foreign tourists in the City of Gentle People.

Andy’s personal story is one which is certain to engender feelings of sympathy and respect in equal measure: he was born without hands and forearms. Due to his need to cope with such challenges, it takes him 4 days to complete one miniature tricycle. He embodies the truth that having to live with physical disability need never prevent any person from being completely ABLE, Knowing this, one can’t help but be inspired to the core to own one of his miniatures.
