The snowmen measure 5 inches wide by 7.25 inches high to 7.75 inches high. All of the snowmen figures are wearing red jackets with green and white scarves. Three snowmen are wearing black hats with a sprig of holly leaves and berries. The other snowman wears a red and white Santa hat. One snowman carries a decorated Christmas tree.

Your letter of inquiry states that this merchandise is purchased and sold through your Christmas department during the holiday season. The snowmen also appear to be decorations which will be sold and used during the Christmas season.
