Unbelievably excited for this. Wish I could get one before Christmas but I spend too much on presents every year :D

First thing after the new year I'm getting one. Very beautiful. And I want that LOTR song book. :D
Our songs will live on, and will be sung by our children, and by our children's children. This is how we will be remembered. This is who we were.

That is a pretty cool ocarina. Pretty small too, but I guess a hobbit couldn't be as comfortable with a bigger one.
Lots of books are difficult to understand, lots of books are easy to understand.
The Bible is both: so simple a child can believe, so complex that scholars ponder it for decades and decades.

I don't think it's very small. If it is a duplicate of the OoT's body, then it's about 5 and 1/2 inches long.

STL will probably send Cris one for an overview.  I think we'll try to take an STL Ocarina Family Portrait of most of the STL ocarinas we have.  I think that might help compare the sizes.

Much better picture, and yes, it's lovely. I don't have the funds until after Christmas, but I will be ordering one for sure.

I'm deciding between either getting this one or the DIY Paint-it-yourself ocarina. Does this one have a hole for a neckstrap?
