Westinghouse 3-piece Solar Deco Garden Critter Light Sets
They are cute, if you are sitting next to them, but just a speck of light from a distance. I would be ok with that, except I just saw the same exact thing for half the money and no expensive shipping!
Looks pretty, but...
I bought a set of the hummingbirds. They look very pretty in the yard, however 2 of them don't work. I'll probably send them back, although that's more of a hassle than they might be worth.
WAITING FOR DEFECTS
TERRIBLE BUYING EXPERIENCE, WAITED A WEEK FOR THEM, THEN ARRIVED, TWO OF THE THREE WOULD NOT WORK,,TOOK THEM APART AS IN INSTRUCTIONS, CLEANED BATTERYS STILL DEAD, NOW HAVE TO GET TO UPS STORE AS I AM ELDERLY AND HAVE TO TAKE THE BUS THIS IS MORE OF A FULL TIME JOB THAN A PURCHASE. I SUPPOSE IN FOUR WEEKS OR SO I WILL ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING, THE WHOLE TIME THEY HAVE MY MONEY AND I AM LEFT TO DEAL WITH THE DEFECTIVE MERCHANDISE JOB!!
Critter light sets
I love these.bought butterflies as gift and kept hummingbirds for myself.
Saw the picture....and when I rec'd them they were soooo pretty, just like the picture!
THEN..... I opened one box (I bought 2) and put them together and put them in my yard. How disappointed was I !!!!!!????? One broke as I was putting it in the ground, no problem, I put it in a different place where small post would work. Two NEVER worked, one barely worked. This is after I gave them 2 days of Florida sunshine!!!! I did send them back - and I don't expect to have to pay shipping chgs for defective merchandise. I would rather have had them working....even if the only lasted one summer. Very Very unhappy! :((
not sure yet
I was very excited to get these. However I have had them out for a week now and one is already not working. Not happy about that at all. I guess we will wait and see how long the other two last.
I purchased the Hummingbird set and they are absolutely adorable. I've had no problem with either putting them in the ground or with them lighting up.
I have been really surprised by the bad reviews for this product, but it may depend a lot on where you live and how much sunshine you receive. I live in Florida with sandy soil and lots of sunshine. These seem very sturdy to me - they went into the ground easily, I wonder if others did not know to pull the plastic off of the solar batteries? They worked the first night after only about 6 hours of sunshine - they glow beautifully every night and I just love them. So if you live where there is a lot of sun, don't be afraid of these. If there was a way to post a picture of them at night, I would. My whole family has commented on how pretty they are.
Cheap, cheap. cheap. Only one lit. Not worth shipping back though.
2 sets one going back
One set works fine, one does not. I am sending it back as defective. I should NOT have to pay the full S/H to send it back. They are really cute but not a good value.
Worst purchase ever
If I would not have to spend yet more money I would send these back to QVC. I have had them for about 10 days they no longer work plus 2 have broke. I live in FL so they have plenty of sun to power up... SO disappointed.
I ordered the hummingbirds. Mine went into the ground OK but only because I know from past experience last year that you have to be very careful in getting them into the ground or they break. So this time I did it slowly, held onto the lower part of the rod, and gently pushed them in. Last year I ordered the butterflies and they all broke putting them into the ground. And by this year they were done for altogether. It would be nice if these would last more than one year. So hopefully they will all come on as they are charging now on initial charge.
