Quite a small bin - not nearly big enough for use in my kitchen, so it lives in the bathroom. The colour is absolutely lovely - a really gorgeous pink, and it's got a lovely texture, not a normal, shiny plastic type of material. The pedal action works well, with a really 'slow motion' closing of the lid - which I must admit was played with for quite a while when we first got it by my children!! The inside of the bin has a handled, bucket type insert, which is useful for emptying, and I was pleasantly surprised to find a roll of bin liners included. The only reason I can't give it a full five stars is the cost - even though it's great quality, and a pretty addition to a room - over £70 for a small bin is really expensive!!
