The "original 21" figurines are examples of quality collectible figurines by Precious Moments. One such collectible, "God Loveth a Cheerful Giver," is a ceramic statue of a little girl pulling a wagon with five puppies. Introduced in 1978 and retired in 1981, it has no production mark. Single figurines and lots of two or more of the Original 21 are available on eBay. Four other originals have the following titles:
- "Come Let Us Adore Him"
- "Prayer Changes Things"
- "Jesus Is the Answer"
- "Unto Us a Child Is Born"

Although Precious Moments has produced an abundance of ceramics, the company also manufactured items such as dolls, books, stuffed animals, stationery, watches, and needle-working kits. Designed as gifts, most items were geared to specific categories with seasonal, religious, or relationship-related themes:
- Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and other holidays
- Religious themes and Bible verses
- Wedding and baby gifts
- Special occasions and relationships
- Family and friends
"Limited edition" means the company only produced a specific number of an item, regardless of its popularity. When that number of figurines have been sold, the mold is destroyed. This adds a rarity feature to the particular item. "Retired" products are items no longer produced by the company. Occasionally, the company will return a retired product to the sales line if there is enough demand for it. Over 500 products have been suspended or retired, including limited editions, figurines for months of the year, and a "Precious Moments Last Forever" special porcelain medallion. These pieces are available on eBay.What is a Chapel Exclusive figurine? Chapel Exclusive figurines are sold only at the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, Missouri.
