  • Surprisingly nice

    This was part of a theme I selected for Christmas gifts---handcrafted pieces from international artisans. I wasn't too sure if my grandson and niece's children would like this compared to the current technology, but the grandson said they were cool when I told him they were hand carved in Africa. The small basket was very nice and well made. It would buy a larger version of it for decorative purposes.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The actual colors were much nicer than the image; some deep wood tones, contrasting earthen colors
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was pleased with the quality of the sculptures. Being individually hand carved makes them very unique. The basket they came in was much nicer than expected.
    • How accurate was the sizing? True to the described dimensions
  • Animals

    I ordered this for my toddler for a Valentine's Day gift. He loves to name all of the animals. Great unique set for imaginative play. Great for room decor when he gets older. Great price, too!

  • Amazing craftsmanship!!

    What a wonderful job the craftsman did on the woven box and the adorable carved wood animals. I was very pleased with my purchase and happy to have been able to help fund the craftsman in Kenya.

  • Wooden animals

    These carved animals and box are wonderful. They are intricate, beautiful and will be a great addition to our children's collection of animale from around the world.

  • Set of 7 Wood Kenja Minatures with Box (Kenja)

    This was my first time ordering from Overstock.com. I was a little reluctant, however, when I received this order I was very pleased. I loved it!!!! I am giving it as a gift to my daughter and I know that she will absolutely love it also. The detail in the craftsmanship in the hand-carving is awesome and to be able to take the banana leaves from a tree and incorporate them into a box totally amazes me. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family. I have ordered other items from World Stock because I was so impressed.

  • Small

    The box is pretty cool looking, I thought it'd be larger. It can fit in an adult hand, No complaints on that, nothing said the size of the box. Our animals came un sanded, with splintered wood hanging off of them.

  • Very nice and I helped a village.

    Carvings are good even though a bit small. The box is nice as well and holds the items well. I am decorating our bedroom in an African animal / village theme, and have purchased many hand made in Africa items for the decor

  • handcarved 7 wooden animals in handmade box

    This was a Christmas present for a 3 yr old boy. He LOVES the animals and the box they live in. The carving is rudimentary but one can still distinguish the various jungle animals. Smaller than I expected, but just right for this little boy.
