These are vintage and collectible 70s and 80s cardboard Thanksgiving decorations with large honeycombs that have either the front and back of the figure or the front of the figure on both sides which makes them viewable from any angle. When opened they all will stand alone in a group decoration or can be used as an accent by themselves. The honeycombs fold up flat for storage. They are used but in good to very good condition. Most have the tabs for opening the honeycombs to make them stand. If tab is missing a paperclip will work just as well. The colors are bright and there are no stains. The honeycombs are heavy 2 ply tissue paper and are quite attractive in the bright shaded colors. These are quality cardboard and paper decorations to use each year in the fall and at Thanksgiving.
