My one is called Pedro, but you can call yours whatever you want.

He may look like one prickly character, but he's friendly enough and very helpful. He likes to hold onto your pins for you, keeping them all in one place until needed. (In fact he feels the more pins the better as it adds to his tough-guy image...makes him even more fierce you see)!

He has a sombrero which can be removed...but be warned he is a bit touchy about it being taken off...mostly due to him being as bald as a coot / cucumber underneath - which may explain for the over compensating of that huge silky moustache of his!

He stands just under 5" /13cm tall in his bucket. Pedro and the pebbles have been securely attached to the base with hot glue.

See Photo No.4 for a range of colours - leave a note at check-out stating your choice.

Glossy Black * Dark Brown * Forest Green * Apple Green * Pastel Pink * Gold
(Matt black & silver buckets out of stock).

Please do not leave unattended around babies or small children due to small parts, (beads for eyes).

I have quoted a price of $20.00 as a ball-park figure. Please contact me for a more accurate price to specific destinations, as the postage price may be lower than the one listed!

I use the International Air service, where they AIM to deliver worldwide within 5-7 working days from date of shipment.

For non-NZ locations, New Zealand Post relies on postal services around the world, which means that unfortunately they can’t offer a guaranteed delivery time, and they can’t compensate for delays and/or where applicable, missing Track & Trace information.

International Tracked & Signed or International Signed items cannot be sent to PO Boxes and delivery points where there is no-one to sign for the item.

***Expect postal delivery service to take longer during busy holiday periods***
