We fell head over heels for these miniature companions, but courtship can be tricky. Before we make a commitment, we want to make sure these plastic partners get your approval. Would you send one to your long-distance sweetie, gift to cheer up a lonely pal, or use as a bachelor or bachelorette party favor?

Thanks for the question, Mari. It took us a bit to round up all of the info, but we're pleased to tell you that this product is assembled in California, where the wood for the boxes is cut. The boxes are made by hand, and the sawdust created when the wood is cut is used to stuff those boxes. The little people are distributed from Louisiana (we'll get more info to you on where they are actually created as soon as we can), and the glass bottles are produced in Colorado and Arizona. We do apologize for the delay in getting all of this information to you.

We're glad you're excited about these bottles, Kelly! If this product passes the voter test, there will be a wider variety of people than just those shown in the image on the left. We just picked a few to give you an idea of the different styles.

Cute idea, great to have something in a lower price range. Agree with others that you may want a few more options (additional skin tones).

Creepy and "ownership of partner" issues aside, this just seems tacky, and cheaply made. "plywood, plastic, sawdust, paper, Elmer's Glue"? Really?
