This jolly Kmart snowman has a wooden candy cane in his left hand, a burgundy-colored cap with a silver-colored holly sprig, a matching colored scarf, black boots with wooden soles,  two red buttons, and rosy cheeks. Unfortunately, our sample had defective boots – both wooden pieces were barely attached to the fabric by the adhesive, with the front dangling loose. It is probably difficult to find a good adhesive to hold painted wood to fabric. The problem is less noticeable when the snowman is standing upright. It is about 7 inches tall.

The tag states that it is a product of Prima Creations of Yorba Linda, California and was made by Guangdong Quanyu Arts Toy Company of China.

It sold for only $2.67 on the Kmart website at Christmas 2009.
