I love this old fashioned, Christmas decoration. I love to add new decorations to our collection and this one would be perfect for a new special addition. I am sure that if you searched Ebay for the figures they would be there. My husband and I just found a color wheel for our Christmas tree at Ebay. Good Luck and Merry Christmas everybody!

Wow, I'm surprised this kit is still produced. I've had mine for well over 10 years. I got mine at Walmart when they still had a decent craft department.
