3.0 out of 5 stars Nice fountain but needs a LOT of sunlight, June 14, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a small fountain that is powered by a small solar panel. It only works when the sun is shining directly on the solar panel. A shadow or a passing cloud will cause the fountain to stop working. The solar panel does not charge a battery, like with a solar light, so it will only work when sunlight is hitting the solar panel. The panel has a 9 foot wire which allows you to position it away from the fountain.
It works nicely with a strong 12-18 inch fountain of water, with full sun on the solar panel. With less sun, the fountain is weaker and just spurts a bit..(I have this in a shallow bird bath with a diameter of about 14 inches and about 3 " deep.) Birds are very attracted to it and like to play under the spray. The pump is rather small - it will pit in the palm of your hand. It comes with 3 different spray heads that sort of snap on and two extenders which allow you to raise the head above the water. It has a suction cup on the bottom that holds it in place. The fountain has a removable "screen) that allows it to be cleaned out - little leaves and such get sucked into it and clog it up from time to time, but the screen pulls off and is easy to clean.
It's a very light duty fountain. Not awful if used in direct sunlight.
This would work best in an area that gets direct sunlight most of the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy little bookcase, November 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sturdy little bookcase. Made of solid wood, though not sure what kind of wood it is. The shelves are sold and do not warp or bend under the weight of books. Has a dark brown stain. I bought two and used the enclosed hardware to stack on the second bookcase. It's fairly sturdy and looks ok. Came boxed and assembled - just remove from box, fold out the sides and fold down the shelves,. It's not fine furniture but it is well made and a better choice than the typical screw together particle board bookcases that cost about the same price. Also like that it['s solid wood with a real finish on the wood.

Lovely book. I like the creative an unique models detailed in the book. Diagrams are fairly easy for someone with some origami experience to fold. The book is beautifully designed. Nice photos.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Needed to put air in my tires. When we had a bit of a cold snap the Low Tire Pressure light lit up on my car's dash. Tried using the coin operated air compressor at the gas station to inflate the tires, but that didn't work. I decide to check out tire inflator air compressors here on Amazon. After checking out many models available I decided to purchase this one. I like that it can be used with a regular home outlet and with the 12v car plug. Also liked that it looked like it was solidly built, based on the photos and the other reviews on here. Also liked that it can be used for bike tires. It came in a black storage bag, and included the 110 v home wire and the 12 V car plug. Has a separate on/off switch for each power source. Also came with other attachments to fill up balls and other inflatables. Directions are minimal, printed on a small piece of paper. Don't know much about cars or specs on tires or air compressors so i just wanted something that would be easy to use and decent value.

Basically, after checking the tire pressure needed, I lugged the unit in and connected it to the tire. Turned it on and noticed a few things. It's rather loud. It vibrates a lot so that when you're looking at the gauge the needle vibrates as well. . Topped off the tires in a few minutes and used a tire pressure gauge to check the tire pressure.

Was a good deal for the price. Handy to have in the car when needed.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was looking to buy a new electric pencil sharpener for classroom use. I decided on this one because of the color - green -It's a nice and bright color and easy for the kids to find. Also I like that it has a pencil storage section in the back. Holds at least a dozen pencils. It comes with a power cord that plugs into the back of the sharpener. Sharpens with nice, even sharpening - stops when sharp.I like that it won't sharpen without the clear plastic shavings cup in place - so kids can't get hurt. I also like that you can easily see when it is full of shavings.I have used this to sharpen high quality Staedtler pencils, as well as dollar store ones with the same result - all good, evenly sharpened points.. I wouldn't use this with wrapped pencils (the ones that have a thin printed plastic wrap) and I would avoid colored pencils as the wax would probably gum things up after a while. I like that it comes in colors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, June 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this product 5 years ago for use in my classroom as a mail box for my students. The literature organizer has held up over the past five school years, where it is in use by students several times each day. The outer "box" is made up of MDF particle board with a thin laminate covering. This has not chipped, stained, or torn since my purchase. Every now and then it gets wiped down with a baby wipe or a bit of spray cleaner on a paper towel. The inner horizontal and vertical partitions are cardboard. The pieces slide together and fit into the box. It took a while to assemble originally, but is just as sturdy now as it was when new. There are black plastic "rails" that sort of snap over the edge of the shelves. It came with stick on paper labels for the shelves. The labels didn't hold up well and were impossible to remove. I now label the shelves using large binder clips - attach the new label to the bottom of the clip and clip that onto the front of the shelf.
The shelves hold letter size paper laid in flat. It' sturdy enough for a few papers and two or three composition notebooks.
While this is not the highest quality item available, for the price, it has been a good value and has held up well for the past 5 school years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging and Original, March 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Th book is really fantastic. Challenging designs. However, it is missing the diagrams for the Statue of Liberty - and it's too bad because it looks like a very challenging model to fold.
The book is BEAUTIFULLY designed and I look forward to working my way through it...even without Lady Liberty. It should be noted that this is a hard-back book with the spiral bound pages inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun kit. This is not just a book, February 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fun kit. This is not just a book. It is a boxed set that has an origami book, a chess board, and papers to fold the chess pieces.The book is lovely - nicely illustrated with detailed folding diagrams. The chess board is very nice - It unfolds into a board that is about 20 inches square.
There are many models of cats and dogs. They are folded separately and then glued onto a base to make the chessmen. The cat and dog models are very nice on their own, but they are a bit complex.
Box measures about 11 inches square. It open like a book. Inside is the stuff - the book, chessboard and papers. These items are encased in a plastic "clamshell" type package that is glued to the inside bottom of the box. It was very difficult to remove this from the box.
The box is nice too - very sturdy with thick sides with a magnetic closure. And it is perfect for holding the chess board and the chess pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Area Rug, January 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased the 5x7 rug for a bedroom, to be placed on a hardwood floor. I was concerned about the quality and was not sure what to expect just from the product description and the photo. I am very satisfied with the rug I received. The rug came as pictured. The colors are a bright.

The rug is not very thick. It has a short pile, and there is a nice plush feel under foot. It is woven onto a heavy mesh backing, like a thicker area rug would be. It does not have a rubberized backing, so you will need a non-slip rug pad under the rug. In my experience, most area rugs of this size and type need the rug pad to keep it from slipping on a hardwood floor and to add a bit cushion to the step. The edges are neatly bound. It is a very well constructed rug.

I have purchased similar area rugs form local home centers. This is similar quality. It is a great value for the price. Good quality, light weight area rug. I probably would not use it in a high-traffic area, but in a bedroom or diningroom it would probably hold up for years and years.
It was delivered rolled up in a large fitted plastic package, The rug had to be removed from the package and then unwrapped - a bit of shrink wrap around the center. I have purchased rugs in the past from other retailers that are packed the same way. Really not a problem and easy to unpack. The rug needs to be laid flat for a day or so to flatten out.
