The item consists of brown and white foam pieces that are accompanied with decorative foam articles that include gingerbread men, the words “Christmas Wishes”, Christmas trees and other decorative articles. The brown and white foam pieces must be interlocked to form the gingerbread house, which is then decorated with the accompanying decorations. The decorations must be glued to the gingerbread house. The finished product is 8- ¾” in height. The item is packaged in a plastic box with a textile handle.

The assembled product is a purely decorative gingerbread house that will be used to decorate the home for the Christmas holiday.
