Seek, explore, discover

    “Quest was inspired by my son, who is currently immersed in the research and documentation of other cultures. The idea of the figure is to portray that time in someone’s life when he finds something that he is passionately interested in — and begins to pursue it, independently, with no parental prodding. He’s ‘into it’. It’s the love of learning for learning’s sake.  Quest represents when a young person (or really, any age person) is motivated by his own interests and goals.

    Quest could be a birthday gift or graduation gift, or a thank you gift to a teacher/mentor who may have sparked an interest in a young mind.”

    Quest

    Submitted by Patty in Bristol, England, October 2016

    A young friend from our parish recently began to study theology and preparing to become a catholic priest. Unfortunately, to do this he has had to move away from friends and family. As a leaving present our family gave him the little figure entitled "The Quest." We thought it was very appropriate for him, specially since he is doing this against the wishes of others.

    Quest

    Submitted by Lisa in Ilinois, August 2016

    I have given an assortment of Willow figurines to many people in my life and have received some as well. I found "Free" with the bluebirds on the outspread arms was appropriate for my daughter when she left for college. I knew I wanted to give an angel to my son too, but didn't find an appropriate one until I found QUEST while searching the internet! I tracked one down at a nearby store. It has been wrapped up and packed for about 6 weeks and I will leave it on his desk after we move him into his dorm tomorrow, with a personal letter attached. It is bittersweet when young adults leave for school, but these figurines make it just a little easier reminding them of themselves and the hearts that are at home. I love giving these figures and I have received some as well. Their messages are sincere. Thank you, Lisa

    Quest

    Submitted by Faye in Havelock, Ontario, February 2014

    After the passing of my son who was 36 years old and died very suddenly from a blood clot in his leg in December, my sisters went out to look for a angel to give me in his memory, My son was a very big reader and had tons of books. My sister said she looked up on the shelf and there it was. She knew right away it would remind me of my son. I love it. Every day when I see him sitting on my shelf he reminds me very much so of my son. I am going out to buy for my youngest son, the boy heart of gold; the heart that he tried to save by doing CPR, and the little girl holding the house. The house will hold many memories-for my daughter the doll house he was building for his niece.

    Quest

    Submitted by Brenda in Victoria, Australia, June 2012

    I saw the figures one day and purchased three; "Anniversary" representing my husband and myself, "Grandmother" representing myself and my granddaughter and "Grandfather" representing my husband and my grandson. I was minding my grandchildren one day and Liam (5) was standing at the figurines, pointing at and naming them. "Anniversary" he decided was Grandma and Pa, "Grandmother" was Mummy and Madison(3), "Grandfather" was he and Daddy. He then turned to me and said "Where is Uncle Dan?" I spent months searching for a figurine of a single male and couldn't find one. Tonight though, there he was; "Quest," which is a young man sitting on books, with a book in his hand and a book at his feet. How appropriate; my son is studying for a degree, so I laughed at the irony and bought it. "Uncle Dan" is now sitting with the rest of the TEAM. Liam will be pleased.

    Quest

    Submitted by James in Ireland, December 2011

    My Mum gave me this today for Christmas. It is not usually the type of thing she would give me. I have just been offered a job in America and have decided to take it. I will be leaving Ireland to work in Maine looking after kids with mental health problems. This gift was so thoughtful and inspiring. It is something that I will always cherish and is symbolic of the Quest I am about to embark on in my new life. Thank You Mum I love you so much.

    Quest

    Submitted by Elaine in MI, August 2011

    The first time I saw this figure I gasped because it so perfectly represents my son. He has a learning disability that seriously affected his social skills while growing up. Thus he often turned to books as solace for his loneliness. As a young adult he continues to struggle socially, but he is making progress. Still, he loves books and, like the figurine, always has several "going" at once. Our family joke is "Don't bother asking him what he wants for his birthday or Christmas because there is only one answer--books!"

    Quest

    Submitted by Carol in California, August 2011

    I have two wonderful boys, and I saw the boy reading the book called "Quest." Since it was their first day of college today I finally gave it to them before they left this morning. We talked about the future, and the quest they were starting today. I hope they know that with this small gift to remind them, they will always be on a journey and to enjoy life, that they are the greatest gift God ever gave me!
