There are hooks and eyes, so they can be connected in series. There is a type 3 (dt3) decal on the base of the lion. The zebra and rhinoceros are also present. The zebra is missing its hook (at the back).

The lion's tail is broken off. The zebra's tail has a significant chip missing. Other minor chips and some light scribbling.

The base of the lion is different wood from the other two, which are lighter and softer.
