My grandmother also had one of these figurines, the baker. She has passed away now and my sister "inherited" him. We always begged my grandmother to see the little smoking man when we visited her, so my sister was so excited to get him. We would love to find the cigarettes. If anyone has any info, please e-mail laownby@utk.edu. Thanks!

"Vintage" Enesco figures like this go for $5-20.00 each. Enesco was founded in 1958 so they may be 50 years old at most.

I have one also, given to me by my Grandmother. An old man holding a violin. Now that I see the whole set, I remember them. Very cool. I too would like to get ahold of the cigs.

I have offered my mother as a gift such figurines. And in return, she knew how I like to smoke, she told me about a site where I can buy cigars for cheap prices and they have discounts as well. I'm really temped to order from them.

I have the monk and the violin player that were passed down to me by my great-grandparents. I'd really like to collect them all. Any ideas where to find them? If so, please email chris.correia@att.net. Thanks

I have 2 figurines of men with smoking jacket and english style hats, they are about 2 1/2 inches high and one has the whole in front and the other to the side and I have 6 cigarettes. I'm afraid to use then cigs and then not be able to get more...These men are also different as they are not on a stand, just shoes.

Ok for those who want to see their smoking guys actually smoke....you can take tissue paper ...the kind used to purty up gift bags...and cut a small rectangle and roll it very tightly until it makes a little stick...BUT HERE IS THE KEY....AFTER you have it tight ...unroll it and add a piece of unscented dental floss to the center(add it to the first turn) and roll it back up tight....it slows the burn and adds more smoke...the oil from your hands should keep it rolled once done (if not lick your fingers just a little as you roll it up)... cut the stick into 3/4 inch pieces with scissors or wire cutters...and viola you got some smokes to use to show your kids and grandkids ...well that sounded bad but my great grandparents showed me and I was mesmerized...

Hope this is helpful...

....ohh one more thing...mine actually made a couple smoke rings...small ones but it was pretty neat!

 I actually have a smoking sailor figurine. He is a Napco by Giftcraft figurine though, # A1733B, made in Japan. 

I also have 7 of the little cigarettes with the original "Puffy Cigarettes" packaging, though the packaging is not in great shape! I am looking to possibly sell these... I know the figurine isn't worth a whole lot, but I'm thinking that not too many people have the cigarettes still?

I have five of the little guys.  Chef, Farmer, Woodsman, Monk and Hobo.  I also have two monkeys that my Grandmother made back in 1979 in a ceramics shoppe.  For anyone looking for the cigarettes I can get some .  E-mail if you want info.  jfpowers77@yahoo.com
