Answer

Precious Moments figurines are porcelain depictions of teardrop-eyed children that are highly collectible. Precious Moments art was first introduced in the 1970s and the figurines were introduced by the end of that decade.

Precious Moments figurines have sparked collectors' clubs as well as a Precious Moments museum in Carthage, Missouri. Precious Moments were first drawn by the creator, Sam Butcher, to give as gifts, and he later turned them into cards and posters.

Precious Moments figurines often are given to children and teenagers for birthdays, graduations and other major milestones.
