Beatriz Ball pieces are made entirely by hand, one at a time, using the ancient art of sand casting: pouring a premium quality alloy of molten aluminum into sand molds, and then going through four levels of polishing. More than twelve different sets of hands are involved in the creation of each piece, and the result of this intensely handmade process is a piece with a depth of character, warmth and personality that communicates in a way that only a handmade piece can. Every piece is designed to be unique, functional and a work of art. Whether used for casual or formal entertaining, as lustrous decorative touches, or as a special gift, you’ll enjoy the beauty, integrity, and thoughtful design of every piece for years to come.



For the young or young at heart, Giving Bear is designed to be gifted to anyone in need of a little comfort, a little brave, a little safe. Everyone needs a hug, and that’s why this cuddly bear is silky soft and lovingly stuffed for endless hugs. Touchable, textured fabrics offer a soothing feel to this floppy companion. A keepsake bookmark with a message of encouragement comes tied around Giving Bear’s neck to offer bravery and strength when it is needed most. Polyester.

Measures 8" W x 10" L x 16" H. Surface washable. 


Big things truly come in small packages when getting to know the Mini Giving Bear. This giving bear is not only the furriest side-kick but also the most endearing. Standing 8.5" inches tall, this fluffy fellow fits perfectly in a little one's arms. Mini Giving Bear is veiled in a soft feather-like plush material so fuzzy, it seemingly hugs you right back. Not only is this bear a lifelong friend, but a reminder to a special little one that they are endlessly valued and treasured.

 The 12" Rockin' Robbie tree sings and sways while lights flash to "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree."

12” Jolly Jack Frost snowman bops while his wreath lights up and his hat dances to “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”

The 11” Jingling Santa bops, shakes his bell ringing stick while he sings “Jingle Bell Rock”.

Adorable Rock & Roll Rider reindeer trots and shakes its tail to "Sleigh Ride."  He's sure to liven up your holidays!



Grownups can read along with children as they fill in the missing O's with their favorite cereal. Elves need pompons on their shoes, snowmen are missing decorations on their funny hats, and reindeer are sorely lacking in shiny noses. Recessed circles allow children to place Cheerios in just the right places to complete the scenes. Save the "don't play with your food" rule for later--this surprisingly cute board book is sure to be a favorite with the Cheerios-chomping set.
