So funny!

I have the gremlins stealing the gnome myself and was looking to share in the fun. These gremlins with the decapitated flamingo is the perfect gift.

Almost as pictured

The goblins are awesome and just as pictured, but the Flamkngo has a clean cut, so it's not quite as funny as the picture. It's still a great piece, but the image should be updated to reflect what we actually receive.

A whimsical feature for the home or garden

My sister has an older home with a stone and metal fireplace. She has these guys right in front and they match the metalwork of the fireplace.

Cute, but definitely not large.

We live on the water, so these little guys are at the edge of my backyard in a flower garden. Because they are not really tall, I improvised and used rustic tin planters as risers (just turned the planters upside down).

Love It!

Every time I look at it in my garden I smile. It also make me happy to hear a neighbor walking their dog laugh out loud when she saw it.

Very Unique and Fun

This is the second time I purchased this for a gift and it has been well received both times. My friend is afraid to put it in her yard for fear someone will take it because it is so darn cute. The ends of the flamingo are not cut to make it appear as though it was ripped, so my husband used a pair of side cutters and that did the trick!

I read the comments other buyers had written about this, they were accurate, so I wasn't surprised. The flamingo wasn't shredded, which I think would make this all the more funnier. The critters were a little rusty, but that added to their charm. I also drilled holes in the bottom to allow for drainage, and put a clear coat of spray paint on them, so it wouldn't rust any further, as these guys are going in my garden. I'm also going to put a hole in the flamingo pieces, so water will drain out of them as well. I saw these at Mall of America in MN for a lot more than these were on line. I was prepared to pay their price, until a friend found these on this website. They are so worth the money, and they make me smile every time I see them!
