A basically useless object rendered even more useless. A lovingly handcrafted replica of mass produced garbage. Superficially identical to foam packing peanuts, these cement packing peanuts are in fact different in every important way, making them a pleasing decoration or paperweight. Should not be used for shipping except as a joke.
Dimensions: 1 x 1 x 2"
Materials: Cast cement
