"Peace" Inspirational Pin
Ordered this knowing from the description that it might be broken but would be easily fixed-- and was happily surprised to receive it unbroken! Some excess paint or plaster made a few minor flaws, but they were fixed by carefully removing the excess. Made the mistake of opening it at my mom's house- now she wants one, too! :)

Break unnoticeable when repeaired
Ordered 6 of these pins. 3 arrived broken. But, having bought them less than perfect, I knew there might be a problem. The weak spot is between the E and the A. Easily repaired with super glue. The resin's faux wood texture masks the break and the pin looks great.

So Beautiful That Having To Glue It Does Not Matter!
This pin is so beautiful that even it coming in two pieces doesn't matter. You will need to use super glue or hot glue to stick it back together because the peices as so heavy you can't use white craft glue.
I really like the muted "natural" colors. So much Chrismas stuff is garish.
It is kinda heavy to pin on a garment so I may make this into an ornament for the Christmas tree.
I would like to have the Baby Jesus figure be a little larger.

Disappointed - not Merry
I am very disappointed. I ordered two and both were broken in the same spot. Oriental can send me a replacement. It may even make it in one piece. But do I want to give it to someone knowing it could break the first time they wear it, if not before.
The price would be good if the product was worth it.

I ordered lots of these pins and some arrived broken, all in the same place. They are not made of wood, they are made of resin. The design is wonderful unfortunately, they have a very weak point between the letters E and A and that is where they are breaking. What a disappointment. I have been issued a credit.

I bought 3 of these to include with teacher gifts. They are nice looking wooden pins that make a nice addition to other gifts. One of my pins arrived broken, but Oriental Trading was quick to send a replacement. I was pleased with my purchase!

Loved the look in catalog - bought 6. They came loose in the box - two were broken. Three were of unacceptable quality. One is OK. O.T. rep was quick to refund my cost on the 5.
I was very disappointed as I was planning to use this myself and for gift add-ins. The resin material left too much or too little on the three unacceptable.
Love the idea of the pin though, and price good if acceptable quality.
