Koko's Treat HK Secrets:

Covets are whimsical yet functional figurine boxes, combining three dimensional carving and detailed etching. The exterior of "Koko's Treat" features a monkey reaching for a banana. The interior portrays a tree, partially etched and partially sculpted, with room enough to store special treasurers. A variation of 250 of the 2500 piece worldwide edition contains bananas on the interior.
