This is the Santa Claus figurine designed by Painter of Light Thomas Kinkade that recites 'Twas the Night Before Christmas in the artist's own voice. The scene is sculpted from polyresin and handpainted in meticulous detail, including the flowing script on the spine of the book in Santa's hand, the wrinkles on his forehead, and the presents at his feet. His coat and hat are made from dyed fabric and trimmed in faux fur. Behind Santa, a miniaturized painting can be illuminated by its gallery lamp that turns on at the flip of a switch in the display's base. The Christmas tree has built-in fiber-optic lights nestled among the multi-colored ornaments and rich, green foliage that give off a twinkling ideally suited for the dimensions of the scene. The resin display is painted to look like mahogany and has a brass title plaque. With a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity. Switch activates talking and lights. Includes AC adapter or can operate with three AA batteries (not included). 12 1/2" H x 11" W x 9" D. (6 3/4 lbs.)

Poor quality for a collectors item
I received this as a gift. The first time the plaque on the front with the name was upside down. Returned to exchange for same item. The second time, the plaque was approx 1/4 inch off kilter from left to right. There won't be a third attempt on this item.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My grandchildren loved it!
from Tomah, WI
The poem uses different wording in one place about "racking our brains". It is only in one place, so doesn't ruin it, but is distracting.
. Thomas Kinkade recitation not the best
from San Jose

This lovely Christmas decoration incorpoates the Cobblestone Bridge painting by Thomas Kinkade with Santa reading the "Night Before Christmas". I am delighted to have it sitting on a table beneath my Thomas Kinkade painting of the Cobblestone Bridge.
