Over the years, Merry Old England came to adopt the thinking that a cricket in the home would ensure prosperity and health.

Inspired by this belief, the beloved 19th century English writer, Charles Dickens, titled one of his novels A Cricket on the Hearth. As testified by the tale, Victorians postured the little chirper by fireside in the belief that only good would come upon their household.

So adorable and memorable
How adorable a gift for someone who has a hearth or an area of collectibles. The legend makes this item and wish for even a dollar or two more, they would provide the story of the heath cricket in a more stable condition because without the legend, its just an insect,, might look like a cockroach even It is the story that sold me to give these as gifts this year. Just a thought, but the he cricket story is what makes this special, otherwise, get any ole trinket.
