  • Toys

    Bought as toys for my grandchild, and probably not the best due to her young age. Also pretty square lines on the animals, so not very smooth.

  • 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.

  • 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.
