Thanks for the offer of help. I totally understand what you are talking about. I just UNPACKED all of these little treasures. When we got the boxes, they were still in the original boxes and packing material that Cummons sent them in. What a mess! But, necessary I am sure. We had a heck of a time picking all of the little "cotton ball" stuff off of the rides. Time consuming but well worth it. We will be repacking the little wonders right back in their same box with the same packing material along with the foam bottoms to put the stems in and all.
