This is one of my favorite string holders. It's made of wood and features a bear cub in a great graphic. He is holding a banner in his mouth and above the banner it says, 'Jot it down'. There is a slot in front of him which is meant to hold a small pad of paper. The very front says, 'Kub Kitchen Kit Yellowstone Park'. The ball of string sits behind our little friend. Total height is 8 1/4 inches and he is in excellent condition with just a bit of wear to confirm he's old.
