Really
lovely, eye catching, colourful, OK quality.
Arrived in a sturdy box and great design. Instructions were sufficient. The quality is excellent. Quite pricy but excellent quality, will last
for years. I would, I think purchase
this as it is suitable for a wide age group.
I would recommend as this is an excellent product. Not something I would have considered for my
kids as the design is not particularly child –friendly, but it is very stylish
so I think it is suitable for a room which is multi-purpose and used by all age
ranges. I would put it out of reach of children as it looks quite fragile (the
hangers can bend easily) but I think it will last for years. Quite unusual but
lovely. Susan Hill – Rebecca, Alice & Edward – 9, 6 & 6 Years

Good
presentation, nice packaging and looked interesting. Packaging is bright and catches your
eye. Instructions very easy to
follow. Good quality and lovely
design. This is more than I would
usually pay but worth it for the quality.
I would purchase this as my daughter loved it. I would recommend for creative children. Overall a lovely product enjoyed by my
daughter. Joanne Yu – Maggie 5 Years

When
this arrived the wires were quite flimsy and bent very easily so had to be bent
back into shape but the birds were very well made. The mobile came in a lovely little box and
was very well packaged. The instructions were very clear and easy to
follow. I do struggle to follow
instructions but even I managed to understand them with the help of the
pictures! The wires were very thin and bent out of shape when assembling the
mobile. The birds were well made and I
managed not to break any while I was assembling it! Overall I thought the quality of it was quite
poor. I think it is very expensive for what it is. It is too flimsy and is easily damaged if
touched by small hands. When I first saw the mobile I thought it would be
difficult to put together but thankfully the instructions were comprehensive
and very easy to understand and I had assembled it in no time. As I was
assembling it the wires bent very easily so I had to try and straighten them so
it would hang right. The birds are well
made and fitted easily on the wires.
Once assembled the top wire bent at either side with the weight of the
birds attached. The thing that I was
most confused about really though was what to do with it once it was
assembled! It is not clear what age
group this mobile is aimed at and although all of my children like birds and
wildlife, none of them were really interested in the mobile, so I couldn’t
really see the point of it. The little
hanger that comes with it cheapens the whole product and looks like it’s been
added on as an afterthought. It is not very
clear where to hang this mobile or what its purpose so overall
disappointed. Michele Rowley-Hill –
