Few small areas for improvement. No instructions in box so took time to work out which end of each half-pole screws in where. Screws can be cross-threaded quite easily so go slow and careful: this isn't Concorde-level engineering. Ribbons (4 colours RYBG not rainbow as I expected from advert) a bit narrow at 2 cm so plait takes longer to dance than with wider ribbons. That said, it's a great piece of kit. Sturdy when set up and weighted -- at village fete, it stood up against winds that blew cups of coffee over! Ribbons are tough woven canvas [cotton???] in bright dyes that show up the patterns well. Fits in my car nicely and has been enjoyed by all sorts of people with and without disabilities: a really attractive and accessible activity, and good value for money.
This was light to transport, easy to assemble, easy to fill with water so it was stable and easy to empty of the water again. It dissembles into a pole of two halves and the base so it is easy and not bulky to store. The ribbons are detachable and so you can have as many up to the 12 ribbons as you need. The ribbons are brightly coloured and relatively easy to undo from their arrangement too.
