Yes, it really is Old Saint Nick! Santa Claus comes decked out in traditional Christmas clothing and is ready to spread his famous cheer and good will to every kid (and kid at heart!) all over the world. He is 1/12 scale, which is the most common scale for dollhouses and dollhouse miniatures. It means that if an object is 12 inches in real life, it is sized down to a one inch as a miniature. He measures 6 1/2" tall.
