All these have movable arms and legs. Most about seven inches tall, Marvin the Martian is made of poplar and walnut. Others are made of poplar or pine. Our club makes thousands of toys every year so I plan to mass produce these four in addition to others I contribute. We give them to local children’s hospitals and Ronald McDonald house and The Salvation Army. Total of over five thousand a year, for many years now. We get the poplar from a local lumber yard. They give us their poplar skids that are shipped to them under plywood.
