Great value - but what you see is NOT what you get...
on 28 November 2014
I bought this along with several others of same design as a Christmas present for my parents to put in their garden. The price is very good considering the quality (very sturdy). The delivery was quick also. I have a few grumbles though...
1. The box came all bashed and crumpled. Very flimsy boxes used, but fortunately no damage done.
2. One of the butterflies came loose in the box. Everything else was wrapped in bubblewrap. Given the box was bashed, it could have been worse. There wasn't even any bubblewrap that it had fallen out of, so it looks like they realised they forgot to wrap one and just dropped it in.
3. My main issue is that the 'dark metal' that is illustrated in the pictures is NOT what you get. They have been painted a reddish brown. That's a bit of an issue as the fence where all these will go is exactly the same colour, so there's not going to be the effect I was hoping for. Like other reviewers say, they really should update their pictures if the design has changed.
Other than that, very pleased. One piece (peacock) I bought is in Wyvale for £29.99, so you really can't fault the value for money, but they should make sure descriptions and pictures are reflective of what you'll get.
