"Impressive"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Although the size/ dimensions are stated, upon first seeing the item, its size impresses. What may be overlooked are the two small bugs in the cactus going about their business. There is assembling needed (as is stated), a bit more than expected. Steady hands are a plus.

"Colorful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful colorful cactus. I didnt remember that it needed to be assembled. The assembly was no problem and not difficult. The only problem is the petals on the flowers keep falling off and that is the reason for the four stars but it really is a pretty item
