Welcome to dickblick
To learn the basics of figure drawing,or just to have "standing around," a manikin is a useful reference tool. The accurately proportioned figures adjust to assume most human positions.
Each has its own stand. Both figure and stand are made of unfinished hardwood.

I love my manikin. I always wanted one for my studio. I named him Jeremy.
from Frederick Md
I use the hardwood figures in classes I teach. My students, elementary to high school, have found these helpful as have I. Glad they are sturdy.
Good quality for a low price
Better quality than I was expecting for the price I paid. My daughters started drawing as soon as the package was opened. Very happy with this purchase.

not made for lots of use
By teacher of art
I use this for Art I and II courses. About 130 students We use them with care, but they are still not made sturdy enough to last without injury.80% are still working after a month's usage.20% are unusable and broken.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Horrible range of motion
from Charlotte, NC
I got three 16" male to help me with a scene of guys sitting around and forget it. Not only can they not cross legs, they can't even sit normally. Maybe a scene of guys standing around might work but what is the point of mannikins if you can't pose them. Since I only had one scene in mind, maybe I'll cut their legs off, glue them back on in the right orientation, paint them, and then throw out the mannikins when I'm done.Barbie dolls (Ken dolls if they are still around) are making more sense.This was an exercise in frustration.

Not so great!
By Crafty Lady
from Syracuse, NY
Bought two of these. One fell apart immediately when the bottom flange on the spring from the pelvis to the head snapped. No undue stress was put on the item. The second is still okay.
