  1. These wooden animals are creative as each one can make a sound as though it was its real self. Each animal has its own individual way of making sounds for example if you were to run the stick down the frogs back it makes a croaking sound.
  2. The candles are amazing, they have so many colours fused together each with a different scent. The candle holders are vibrant and colourful to match the candles each one has a festive pattern engraved on it. The shapes of the candles and candle holders seem almost abstract.
