I was very disappointed when this item arrived, it was not what I was expecting at all. A flimsy cane with a plastic bag on the end, containing small twigs, most of which had disintegrated into powder. When I tried to return it, the post office told me it would cost over £11 to send it back. The item itself only cost me just over a fiver, so it wasn't worth it!! I would say to anyone thinking of buying it: DON'T!!
