Perfect as a stocking stuffer or inexpensive gift. Makes a sturdy base for hot dishes of all sizes just by tossing on the counter. Takes up hardly any space.

They were so cute, I had to have them..
I first saw the tumbling trivet in your holiday ad. They caught my eye immediately, and I ordered 2 sets for myself and 2 as gifts. They are so easy to use, and clean up/storage a cinch. Hardest thing was not using them for Thanksgiving, as one of my guests will be getting a set as a stocking stuffer.

Fun, easy product
I put them in the drawer beside my oven. It's so easy to pull them out and "roll" them on the counter with one hand and place the hot dish on them.

Seriously Cute AND Functional!
When I saw these in the Holiday catalog, I went to the store specifically to buy these. While they were out of stock - dozens of people beat me to the store - I placed an in-store order for them and I had them a few days later. They were absolutely worth the wait!
On the functional "it's a trivet" side of things, while they're a little bit smaller than I expected - approx. 3/4" across - they worked beautifully. I've put everything from a fairly full tea kettle to a large Le Creuset dutch on them and the pots were stable and even. "Simply tossing" a few out on the counter or table is a nice idea but in reality, a little arranging is recommended... at least by me. (It's been a long time since I played Jacks so it is possible that my "tossing" skills are a bit rusty.)
On the "cute" side of it, the picture is all you need. It's how you got here, isn't it? They're just plain seriously cute. The packaging is perfect - a small round tin that tucks nicely into a stocking or makes an unexpected small gift. When they're not in use, the tin is easy to store and more durable than a small box.
So if you're buying these as a gift, don't forget to get a tin - or three - for yourself.
