This little guiro is a work of art. It sounds great as an instrument and makes an adorable desk ornament. Meticulously hand carved in Thailand from selected hardwoods. The extra details: darkened feet, ears and back with painted eyes, nose and whiskers add a great touch of whimsy. 3" tall, comes with guiro stick. Scrape the cat's back for a traditional guiro sound or blow as a high-pitch whistle.
