My Little Pizza Art Figure by Lyla & Piper Tolleson
My Little Pizza is an Italian pizza by the name of Paolo. Paolo’s mother and father named him this because he was tiny but had a big heart. For example, Paolo once rescued a goat from the evil Pineapple Pizza Gang. Paolo never really liked shoes because no matter how small the size was, it was too big for Paolo’s feet. He also just discovered he liked the taste of pizza and his favorite flavor was himself. Everyone loves his cheesy jokes.
Lyla and Piper Tolleson are budding toy designers. Along with their dad, Scott Tolleson, the girls created My Little Pizza when they were 5 and 8 years old. Piper enjoys dancing, sketching, and playing. Lyla loves to read, draw, and play video games. Both girls enjoy filming weekly episodes of Blind Box Playhouse with their dad and having weekly drawing lessons.
