If you thought Santa himself was difficult to spot as he made his global rounds on Christmas Eve, there are even less confirmed sightings of his stepbrother the Santaur. You'll never see him talking to kids at shopping malls, or posing for photos in a parade. In fact his mere existence is questionable, were it not for the fact that Archie McPhee has released this wonderful Santaur ornament.
Standing 15cm tall, this $US15 glass ornament perfectly captures Santaur's physique and six-pack abs which have yet to atrophy into a bowl full of jelly. Unlike Santa he doesn't need a team of reindeer to get around, and let's just say kids are certainly not excited to receive the kind of gifts a half-horse human leaves behind.
