    I wanted something original and different as a keepsake for a 40th birthday, this was perfect. Good personal communication from seller, great delivery time and well packaged.

    Very very cute although it wasn't very stable - we've had to put blu-tack underneath it to stop it from rolling. The seller did kindly offer to re-supply, but we didn't have time as it was a gift. It's not a major flaw, just not quite perfect (but almost!).
