I came across this range in a French shop. I had never heard of them before. Distribution seems very haphazard - they are principally produced for Xmas dioramas. A lot seem to be made for Walmart, so they may turn up in the UK at Asda. I started looking for them on ebay - there is a very good range and selling prices are much lower than Preiser-style stuff. They are quite brittle - I snapped the head off the smith's hammer. They are perhaps a little on the small side, but well-detailed and people are all different. It wouldn't be the French countryside without nuns, although the priest looks a bit too CofE. A lot of them are Victorian-looking (After all, Dickens invented Xmas).

Yes i can endorse that Phil.If you look at the websites of shops that stock them (there a few in UK and France) they normally show the height of the figures;anything 7 to 8 cms is fine. Especially like their lampposts!

There is a garden centre about 30 kilometers from me that sells the entire range.
I have got the lamps - a little too small and not bright enough IMO - but if you mount them on a tall circular plinth, the size would be okay.
