I actually had more than this but I have given some away as gifts. In total, I had about 23 or so to begin with and I've only been collecting them for about 3-4 years. It's very easy to find "knock-offs" of these but you can easily tell by the weight and color. These little statues are actually pretty heavy because they are filled with sand and at the bottom they have a rubber stopper and are felt-lined. Also, on the back they will have the year stamp and the Russ Berrie & Co. logo.
I can't wait to keep finding more of these funny little guys to add to my collection!

|I believe the first one is a "Paula" brand figurine that|
was a similar kind also from the 70s. You can tell by the thicker base.
