The soft, pliable fat replica, when passed around the room, will have a profound and memorable effect, serving as a strong but motivating attention-getter. The muscle replica represents accurate weight and volume. The fat replica represents approximate volume of fatty tissue; weights vary. Both are made of long-lasting vinyl plastic. Includes 5-lb. Fat Replica (A-101862) and 5-lb. Muscle Replica (A-101933).
