Part of the Kazoo Panda Mystery Series, sold online and at selected cafes. Each pin is a black and white panda in a colorful costume, with a musical instrument or element. Together the 12 pins in the series represent the many activities and destinations of the globe-trotting Kazoo Panda Bear.
Pins were sold individually and randomly in mystery boxes. The twelfth pin, or chaser, is Limited Edition 500. The chaser quantity is lower than the unstated quantities of the other 11 pins, making the series harder to complete.
This pin is one of the 11 common pins in the series of 12. It features a panda playing a saxophone. Inspirations are New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz music, and its famous Mardi Gras festival. Panda is wearing Mardi Gras beads in traditional colors of purple, green and gold. Around its neck are beaded necklaces in purple and green. On its wrist is a beaded bracelet in purple, green and gold, accented with gold fleurs-de-lis. Saxophone is gold and yellow.
