The leaflet comes with one half depicting the whole set and the other half depicting the figure you got. It reads: It lives on a strangely shaped mountain with countless green pillars. Their hard claws allow them to run up mountains, and they are always competing with each other for speed. When it reached the top, it barks “fee”.

We found the Mineral Hedgehog in Sydney. My husband liked them so got one and ended up with the Emerald one.

Although I like them I wouldn’t know what to do with them. They don’t fit with anything of me. They do look cute with plants though.

If you like hedgehogs or minerals / rocks, this series is nice.
If you prefer more realistic figures you might give this a miss.
