These little guys couldnt be any cuter. I love the different colors and their diminutive size. The detailing is excellent as well. Many thanks to Jesus and Roxana and of course Novica. I absolutely recommend them!

"Christmas ornaments I couldnt put away"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nicely made, colorful, and adorable. We couldnt get a Christmas tree this year (the wildfires in California depleted the local stock) so I set them on my desk for the time being - then decided I wanted to keep them there.
