MAGICAL REINDEER GEMS
All proceeds benefit the Miller Park Zoological Society

Magical Reindeer Gems are back!

The 2017 edition of Magical Reindeer Gems are stocking ornaments.  Last year’s snowflake ornament edition is also available to purchase.

“Gems” are actual reindeer dung droppings from Miller Park Zoo’s reindeer.  They are sanitized and painted before production begins.  Each Gem product is handmade.

Gems developed in 2008 with a story from retired Miller Park Zoo Superintendent, John Tobias.  Here is how the story goes…

John’s grandmother use to gather her grandchildren and take them outside on Christmas Eve to scatter homemade chocolate chips.  She would tell the children that the chips would attract Santa and his reindeer to their home, because the reindeer would know that other reindeer had already visited and left droppings.

To continue this wonderful tradition, Miller Park Zoological Society has designed Magical Reindeer Gem Products using actual reindeer droppings.  If you display your Gem ornament on Christmas Eve, it will help Santa and his reindeer find their way. 

Magical Reindeer Gem products have been shipped to customers in all 50 states and have raised over $50,000. Proceeds benefit Miller Park Zoological Society - the non-profit support organization for Miller Park Zoo.

Each ornament is $9.50 plus shipping. 

Products Available – each product varies in shape, size and color
(International ordering is not available)
