They are wooden kokeshi dolls (a Japanese style), they are about 2 3/4 inches (7.5 cm) high.
They have been hand painted by me, acrylics, with careful attention to detail to give them their own personalities and then coated with varnish.
They would be great on top of a wedding cake, or as an engagement gift, or just a cute couple to have for yourself or a friend that loves penguins.
The heads on this couple are on dowels and can turn either direction and can be removed and changed to the other body if you wish.
Not recommended as a small child's toy because the heads can be removed and there is a small piece of dowel in the bottom.
