          As a fan of the movie "Nightmare Before Christmas" I could not NOT recommend this product. I mean it looks great. Details are good, but my big complaint is the fact that the box showed up with no instructions on how to assemble the thing. Because of that, it took me almost an hour to complete the build as I had to keep taking it apart and putting it together because I kept forgetting some pieces. But it looks great. The "action" seems limited since she only "sings" one song (lips don't move), moves one arm and blinks her eyes. There is volume control and the sensor that makes her work is hidden wll in her neck scar. I do love it, but for the price, there should have been instructions.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, Looks Great
          Cons: No Instructions, Not Durable

          What a fun Halloween decoration! I love this thing. It is HUGE! and was so easy to put together with included plastic zip ties (plus it comes with extra so you can take it apart, store it till next year, then be able to put it together again, for a few years). It is light weight enough to hang from a ceiling, or has a nice strong base structure to sit it on a table top or a piece of furniture. When you plug it in is when the fun really starts. It glows almost eerily, with all of the interior LED lights. I am planning to use it as a main decoration for my "Dia de los Muertes" party!

          A hint of shine gives our modern Home Decorators Collection sideboard its distinctive geometric flair. The rectangular three-door cabinet has plenty of space to house all the essential entertaining pieces. Crafted of natural sheesham wood and finished with ultra-rich dark tone that contrasts perfectly with the golden metal inlay, legs and hardware. Color: Dark Natural.

          A beautiful piece of furniture. Wasn't expecting something quite so nice. Well built, tons of features. Gorgeous deep wood tones with just the right amount of "bling" from the gold metal/brass inlay. The unit is deep and comes with three shelves. All I had to do was unbox, attach the legs and it was ready for use. Did I mention that it is also very heavy. Weighing in at over 100 pounds, it came very well packed for shipping (as much as I hate creating waste and increasing my carbon footprint, I am glad it was securely packed and protected.

          The StyleWell black counter stool has a familiar style and casual appeal. Modern and industrial, the metal stool mixes well with wood, glass or other metal furnishings. An airy slatted contoured back and molded seat provide a nice, comfortable sit at the counter or kitchen island.

          Talk about sturdy! This thing is built like a tank, well welded seams, heavy gauge steel frame, nice shiny paint job. It weighs in at about 30 pounds and only took me 5 minutes to put it together with the included bolts and hex key. I didn't even have to go looking for a tool! Love the glossy finish, though I do think it will show a lot of finger prints very quickly and have to be kept clean more often than a fabric or leather stool. Also, think seriously about a seat cushion if you are older (like me) and don't have much built in padding "down there." It is a hard, metal seat, and the edge kinda cuts you across the back of the thigh when you sit. Just be aware. Otherwise, great chair.

          Was looking for a handle/grab bar for my maintenance closet louvered doors that I just installed. Decided I wanted something bigger than a knob, so I chose a bar that requires two screw hols. These handles are a good weight and size. they come with a pack of ten, plus screws in various sizes for different door thicknesses, which is very considerate. Very easy to install after determining that the screw holes are 5 1/8 inches apart. After that, I simply located the center of where I wanted to install, drilled two holes and set the handles. Viola!

          this collections looks great, but isn't it annoying that the toilet paper sits (drags) against the wall? Will the ring swing out to stay horizontal so that doesn't happen?

          Answer: 
          The bar that holds the paper does swing out to accommodate various size rolls of paper, and the paper does occasionally touch the wall, but I have never found it annoying.

          Answer: 
          the chain is approx 10 feet in length and the electrical cord id much longer. If you buy more silver chain, you could lengthen the chain by another 6 feet, I am guessing, or you could add more electrical wire (if you trust your skills) and customize the length to any of your choosing.
