Wonderful Addition for Your Child's Airplane-Themed Room...
on January 15, 2011
But, you will need VERY high ceilings to hang this without modification... However, it is still a wonderfully colorful and well-made ceiling sculpture that will capture your child's attention and will add a finishing touch to a room's decor which is based on airplanes.
Each of the planes which make up this ceiling sculpture is painted evenly; there are no streaks, uneven coverage, or drips on any of the planes. They are colorful and coordinate well with the Lambs & Ivy Wings crib/bedding set. The multiple stickers came off easily and did not leave marks on the painted surface. While it would have been nice if all the source and safety information had been included in a notice attached to the box, it seems any potential source for litigation is causing manufacturers are being extraordinarily cautious. At least the stickers did not cause any damage to the airplanes' surface!
The only drawback to this ceiling sculpture is its hanging size. If the baby's room in which the sculpture is being hung has an 8-foot ceiling, you will find this hangs down into the crib. If you are hanging it over a changing table, it will easily be within the infant's reach - and, it will be in the changer's way. We were able to solve this problem by removing the top-most "string" and hanging the top bar from the ceiling hook. Nevertheless, the lowest airplanes were probably no higher than 5 feet from the floor and required us to duck when walking under the sculpture. I recommend purchasing some heavy-duty fishing line and putting shorter cords on the airplanes. If you are not comfortable doing that, wrapping the cords multiple times around the bar to which an airplane is attached also works to decrease the hanging distance.
Because this ceiling sculpture is well made and the "problem" of its hang-size is easily solved, I felt it was a five-star product.
