It's a decoration not a forklift
on October 23, 2012
Reading the majority of reviews on here I must say I am really confused. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures. If you expect to be able to put it to heavy use in your kitchen, carry it by the head and/or tail, let your kids play with it or whatever, no it isn't going to work for you or last. The color is muted, it is not high gloss or candy apple. It looks great, and will fit in perfectly with almost any other rooster or farm themed kitchen decor. I have rooster items from <$1 to over $100 and no complaints on this little guy.
Mine sits empty on top of my cabinets with soft illumination surrounded by some plates, mugs etc with roosters and hens on them. Empty eggshells would look good in it(mimicing the product photo). It's a great decoration. It's art. The overall size is a little smaller than anticipated but it is hard to picture it bases on dimensions and photos. It is smaller than a loaf of bread, closer to the size of a large cantelope maybe a little bigger. It would have been nice to get it cheaper, but what wouldn't be nice to get for less money? Happy with mine, no complaints.
