We love it when we get in a Boyd's shipment earlier than expected.
In addition to several Boyd's Bearstones, we got in 8 new Boyd's Treasure Boxes.
Did you know the story behind these? Way back in 1996, founder of Boyd's G.M. Lowenthal, created miniature resin boxes ...called 'Uncle Bean's Treasure Boxes'. G.M. was know as the 'Head Bean', hence 'Uncle Bean's Treasure Boxes'.
Anyway, each contains a McNibble miniature resin character that hides inside the hinged box. And there is always an escape hole purposely placed in the treasure box itself so the little McNibble can escape. (Note that in the brand new Cherry's Tomato it is very evident). The cool thing about Boyd's Treasure Boxes is that they take up very little space and there truly is room for just one more! And as is always the case, we place our orders with Boyd's Bears by Enesco very early so we are fortunate to get 1E editions.
