Comments about UncommonGoods Lobster Lawn Sculpture:

My dad races hydroplanes every summer, and seeing as his boat is named "The Lobster Boat," this was the perfect gift to get him after a fantastic set of finishes in May. He's hoping to race again this August, and this little guy might come along with him. Until then, it'll be enjoying a nice spot on the patio.

I live a few states away, and so I haven't seen it yet in person other than in pictures with dad. Can't say how sturdy it is, etc. but looks great!

      My upcycled lawn lobster arrived perfectly packaged and is even cuter in person. I'm redecorating my mudroom with a fun coastal theme and this fit the bill! Very unique and well made!! Will be displaying it with photos of a lobstering trip my family took up in Maine last summer along with a lobstering map and a extra large clam shell.

          I bought this for my father for fathers day. he's a contractor and I thought it was awesome that it was made with screws and wrenches. my dad loved it. (as well as everyone else who saw it) he lives at the beach but said he was going to put it in his office. rather than outside. although the sturdy design makes it seem like it would be just fine outside.
          great gift!

                Comments about UncommonGoods Lobster Lawn Sculpture:

                My husband likes to collect colorful metal yard art to hang in the trees of our heavily wooded property. He loved this. It appears very durable. Love the size and color. We have not hung this yet. It was made for standing and not for hanging, so we will design a way to attach it to the trees.

                Liked this so much I wanted to order similar item from same designer. But not only was this item sold out, so was the crab design I wanted. Must be a popular item. I'll keep watching to see if more become available.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was on time and the item arrived well packaged.
