#464 Angel Cheeks
Acquired 2006Russ Berrie Company introduced Angel Cheeks in March 2002, in collaboration with the artist Kirk Morgenegg. Angel Cheeks are whimsical guardian angels with heavenly mischievous expressions. They are adorned with robes that are a bit too short giving them a sweet appeal. Of course, it is their “chipmunk stuffed” cheeks that make this set stand out from others. This set is from the exclusive design of Carlton Retail, available only through Carlton stores. It is manufactured by Russ Berrie & Company. I added it to my collection in November 2006. Purchase price $79.99.
