They are not just a Christmas decoration any more. There's a glass loop on top for hanging. String not included. Each piece is unique, so you're choosing a style, not an exact duplicate. But they're pretty close. This one has sharp little edges on it so it is not recommended as a kitten or puppy toy. Or a child unless your child tends to be more dangerous to his environment than the other way around. Mix and match the glass balls and prisms. 6 will fit in a flat rate regional postal box while 48 is a case. A case usually goes UPS.
