We use this on our tables when we go to networking events and when we don't have a lot of room. New patients seem to really like them and they interact with them while we are talking about our serices.
I bought this as a gift for the chiropractor that I work for. I was intending it to be just a ornament for his Christmas tree, but he loved it so much that he displays it in the office now. It is impressive how much detail they were able to squeeze into such a small model
