I started collecting pigs when I was about 15 or 16 years old. I am not really sure how it began, but it still continues today. My mother found the cutest little figurines ever. She was looking for her a card at Hallmark and came accross these. She knew I started collectin them so she got a few of them for me for Christmas.
They range from about an inch and a half to around 2 inches in height. They have one or two that are larger, but they aren't as cute. Each Piggy has a cute name that starts with a "P". My favorite one is Petunia. She is the cutest out of all mine. There are only like 2 or 3 that I didn't get before they stopped selling them at Hallmark.
I think that these make a great gift if you are your friend collect pigs. I still plan on getting the other 3 from ebay, just waiting for the right oppurtunity. You will fall in love just like I did! : )
