Tic et Tac Les Rangers Du Risque Feves
Bonjour! These ceramic figurines were made to be baked inside a cake as part of the celebration of the Epiphany in France. The lucky person that finds one of these Disney "Tic et Tac Les Rangers Du Risque" Feves (trinkets) in their slice of galette des rois (or in the south of France, gateau de rois) is "king for the day."
The figures are about one and a half inches in height. This particular set is one of the best I've seen in terms of sculpting and having the characters look "on-model."
Chipmunks Tic (Chip) and Tac (Dale) are featured here with mice Gadget, Jack le Costaud (Monterey Jack) and housefly Rusor (Zipper). The villain, Catox (Fat Cat) has his henchmen, Mepps the cat, Mole, Wart the lizard, and Snout the rat. These characters are from the 1989 Disney TV animated series, "Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers."
If you are looking for a collectible with a French twist, know that the chances are pretty good that your favorite movie or cartoon character has been made into a Feve. Oooh La La!
