A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

  • Description
  • Reviews

Brand-new and completely exclusive! The Smithsonian National Zoo’s own female Mei Xiang (“Beautiful Fragrance”) and male Tian Tian (“More and More”), make up this pair of adorable Smithsonian Panda Bookends. The parents of newly-born celebrity baby panda Bao Bao, these two Giant Pandas arrived from China in 2000 and parented the National Zoo’s first surviving panda cub in 2005. Handcrafted with exceptional detail, this roly-poly couple looks forward to a steady diet of your books rather than their daily intake of 20-40 pounds of bamboo. Available separately, they are hoping you will keep them together. Polyresin with painted bronze finish. Felted undersides tell the story of each.

Female (Mei Xiang)
Male (Tian Tian)

 Mei Xiang, 6"w. x 5"l. x 7"h.; Tian Tian, 4.625"w. x 5"l. x 7"h.
