Hang On can only be purchased at a GCC store.  On the box photo Stewart has more white around his eyes.  The balloons on this piece are sometimes in different positions.  The balloons are poorly painted, and the paint on the balloon supports has a tendency to crack off.  Beware any "repair" work as it will decrease the value of the piece.

According to Rachel Perkal, who was formerly the head of the Leaf & Acorn Club, at Rosemont, the GCC piece Hang On was originally intended to go with the Squashville County Fair collection (and the fair collection was originally planned to be regular size).  They suddenly needed a piece for GCC, and this one was ready, so they took it and produced it independently.
