        This tissue box is adorable, I have it in my kitchen & everyone who sees loves it. It is very well made & the tissue coming out of the blow hole is so clever. I would order this again and as a gift.

        Pros

        • Super Cute

        Cons

        • Tissue Tears When Pulled
        • Whale Doesn't Cover Box

        Best Uses

        • Childrens Bathroom
        • Gifts

        Comments about WHALE TISSUE BOX HOLDER:

        The whale box did not fully cover my tissue box so you can see the tissue box sticking out the bottom. The tissue hole is a little rough that my tissues tear if they aren't pulled out delicately.
