      These are very cute. Seems they would go well in a classroom, playroom or bedroom.

      Thanks for the reminders of hot air balloons and their "mystique"! My grandmother who lived in NM area LOVED annual hot air balloon fest in Albuquerque, and I was lucky that my best friend's uncle owned a hot air balloon company, so got to balloon in MT!!

      These are great! My husband took me on a hot air balloon ride and we loved it. We only have a Christmas hot air balloon decoration and might need to add another and make it a collection.
