This box figurine features 4 adult kangaroos, 7 babies, and Noel Wiggins tucked in a pouch wearing one of his Harmony Ball ties. Noel wears dark sunglasses in most of the pieces and clear glasses in a small quantity (257). The mouse keeps a low profile tucked away to Noel’s right. The ubiquitous tin can litter appears again.
