News. Look at our new ideas for trimming your Christmas tree

- Story-teller Christmas tree the story of the little bird whose name is Christmas
The above Christmas tree is our first idea about a new line of Christmas trees. We call them: Christmas tree game and story-teller Christmas trees. In other words we suggest to trim your Christmas tree according to a game or a story-line of a fairy tale. A fairy tale? what fairy? There is a new fairy, Fairy Elle that lives at Bosco (read forest). She has great magic powers. For example while she is reading the rules of a game or a new story, a pine of Bosco dresses up and become a wonderful Christmas tree.
You could suggest your kids to cast their own spell as Fairy Elle does trimming the pine for Christmas in the same!
