    I agree with you. No one would ever buy this for themselves. And the friend who gives it as a gift risks never speaking to the recipient again. With this said, the dieter is very cute with matching cheeks and breasts.

    Does his right arm continue around his back or was it just cut off so he wouldn’t weigh as much? Would have been easier and less painful to lose the slippers.

    This is a thermometer, no? And is there a date on it anywhere?

    I’m thinking the arm is behind him & the other hand on the scale/ thermometer. I never check for a date or maker when I snapped this. Since so much of the house was filled with 60’s stuff, this might be from then too. A cheap shot giving this to anyone watching their weight. But he’s cute just the same.

    I love it when figurines are coupled with gadgets but this one is priceless. I love how you can’t tell if his fingers are fused together or not and if he’s missing a limb. Is this supposed to inspirational?
