by MagicalSurvivor77 10 years of wishing, I finally have him!
I have wanted Jolly Hotei for about 10 years or more. He just made me smile every time I saw him and I loved the tradition that surrounds him, makes for a good conversation starter! He also reminded me a lot of my grandparents home as well, who were world travelers and my Granddaddy spent six months with Buddist monks overseas. I would check often to make sure Toscano still had Hotei over the years. Then one day recently I noticed he was on sale and then my email got a message from DT that offered 25% off all products. That's when I finally took the leap and purchased Hotei! Even though at the time he was out of stock, I was pleasantly surprised he came in a week early. I can now say Hotei is now in his home, which is in my office at work. I know most folks put them in their garden, but since I don't have a garden I decided I should put him where he not only will make me smile when I need it most, but he's the first thing everyone will see when they walk through my office door. He is very happy and my favorite photo of my grandparents accompanies him! Thank you Toscano for finally making my dream of having Jolly Hotei finally come true!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Drizzt Really love this statue
I bought this to put out in my garden once spring arrived. It stood in my family room while I got the space ready. But my husband wants to keep it there and not put it outside! My young niece loves the tradition and rubs him every time she comes over. So now I am looking for something else to put outside!

We love this laughing Buddha! His joyful expression is sure to brighten anyone's day! He has been in our meditation garden for several years. Although we bring him inside during our very harsh winters, he has held up well. The details on this sculture are amazing, and he truly does look like stone.

I have always "felt good" while looking at Hotei Buddhas and had to have one for our new patio room. Ordered this little guy and am very pleased with the quality and appearance of the statue. Since I've only had him for a short period of time I can't speak to the maintenance. But, all in all, a great product for the price -- well-packaged and received on time.
Looking forward to rubbing his belly from time to time.

Buddha means "One Who is Awakened." The Jolly Buddha, or Hotei, contains many symbols. The bald head represents "wisdom", the big belly "good luck", the long ears "long life" and he holds gold over his head for "prosperity." He adorns my front porch beautifully, and I like to think he is bestowing all these qualities on all who enter my home. He holds up well in all weather and I hope he continues to do so for many more years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KChevy This product will be a welcome addition to our serentity garden pondside.
Can't help but smile when you see this jolly guy! Shipped safely in a timely manner . I only wish there was a Canadian distributor. Shipping costs due to the weight and customs were expensive but worth every penny. Can't wait for spring to place him in the garden but for now he looks great beside the Christmas tree!

This beautiful statue makes me feel as happy inside as the little Buddha's smile appears on the outside. He makes a very cheerful and welcome addition to our garden.
