Its been a while since I been to any of my local farm and home Stores, so when I visited one today, I found some new 2014 items.

One of them was this little Chipmunk, which is one of the smallest figures I currently own.  For some reason, Schleich sculpted two brown things on the beside it. I think there Acorns but im unsure.

Really cute replica  ^-^. the two things are acorns. I think that they could have done a better work with the acorns, but they are not bad  ^-^. Thanks for sharing.

It's just the Rocky Mountain Easter chipmunk with it's chocolate eggs.

A cute, nice, and really tiny figure. I bought it recently, too. :) And, yes, those are hazelnuts rather than acorns.

If these are in fact hazelnuts and not acorns, I would consider this to be a Townsend's Chipmunk from Oregon, the top hazelnut-producing state. What do you think? I would like this figure, by the way. Too bad it's discontinued.

hazlenuts are abundant in eastern North America, no reason to assume this is anything other than the eastern chipmunk.

I bought mine not too long ago from an eBay dealer in the US, so keep doing searches, you're bound to find one.

Honestly they should have painted the darker "caps" of the acorns. Adorable figure.

Maybe they're acorns that have lost the caps? That's kind of how they look when they come apart (we have an oak tree in our yard, so we see them like that a lot)
