"Ummm, let's see. So the vast majority of toothpicks are 2-1/2 inches long. If the snowman is 2-1/2 inches tall, how does one get a toothpick out? The picture is very deceiving. I found this out the hard way. It would be nice if there was a thicker bottom on the snowman to raise the toothpicks up the way they are pictured. Then it would rate 5 stars."
