These Salamander or Lizard type weights were made specially for the British Heart Foundation and sold exclusively in their shops for £4.99 some ten or tweleve years ago and yes - they are Chinese so the quality varies tremendously. Some I have seen are terrible with the lizard squashed or deformed whereas others are very nice.
