  • 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
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Animal Minitures

    Present for my grandson, I thought that they would be a great gift for a child because most of the toys that kids are given are plastic and dont seem to last a year, but I know that these will last and have a special meaning for him throughout his childhood

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • How is the quality of the product? OUTSTANDING
    • Did the product fit true to size? YES
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • 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.

  • Kenya Animals

    I had recently traveled to East Africa and was looking for some decorative items that I could display with some of my photos. These will do nicely. I'm not sure that they would be that special if I had not had that personal experience with the region.

  • 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.

  • Mostly primitive

    The carvings are created by someone not quite skilled enough to commercially sell their carvings. The box was the nicest piece in the set. Granted we're not talking about a lot of money for this item, but I would consider these carvings to be just practice for someone !!
