Jim Shore is a sell out and I'm not talking about the kind that sells out of their merchandise which he does but this is so much more than that. I purchased a Jim Shore Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer 50th Anniversary piece from QVC for almost $100 and all I got was a misfit toy. Yukon doesn't have his eyes, Bumbles has paint on him that doesn't belong on him, and one of the elves looks like she wasn't finished. I expected better from Jim Shore. I can see big companies like QVC and Enesco doing something like this. I don't expect much from greedy companies but this guy comes off as Americana with his famous quilt like designs.
Just another item made in china. No wonder people are buying more knockoffs nowadays. Why pay full price for half the work.
As I can see, unlike poor Yukon, his eyes are so supposed to be black.
The dilemma I have now is that Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is basically about all the unwanted toys that weren't made correctly and that nobody wanted. I love this show and it makes me sad when the toys cry out that they aren't loved. So how can I give up on them too? I can't. I love them but I don't love greedy companies and owners who choose quantity over quality.
