The French "fèves" are hand-painted porcelain or ceramic figurines. They are made to be put in the epiphany cake also called the king cake.
This is a tradition from France which happens every year on January 6th. Originally it's the day when the three wise men came to Bethlehem to honour baby Jesus.
The tradition in France is to bake a cake called the king cake and to insert the bean inside the cake. The person who finds the bean in his/her slice is the King/Queen of the day so they get a crown (usually made of cardboard).
More recently, the bean has been replaced by a Ceramic or Porcelain Figurine.
Since this time the tradition has been commercialized and there is a very wide assortment of porcelain and gold figurines.
The figurines are relatively small from 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) or less.

View-Master is the trademark name of a line of special-format stereoscopes and corresponding View-Master "reels", which are thin cardboard disks containing seven stereoscopic 3-D pairs of small transparent color photographs on film. It was manufactured and sold by Sawyer's.
The View-Master system was introduced in 1939, four years after the advent of Kodachrome color film made the use of small high-quality photographic color images practical. Tourist attraction and travel views predominated in View-Master's early lists of available reels, most of which were meant to be interesting to users of all ages. Most current View-Master reels are intended for children.
