Good Novelty Item
This mailbox is a good conversation piece! Don't throw away your old mailbox however. Expect it to last 3 -4 years before needing replaced. Plastic hinge parts will break and the flag will sun-rot over time. Enjoy it for what it is and get a new one when mother nature has destroyed the old one. Vandal screws work well to keep it in place, but (by design) are difficult to remove when finished with the product. A fun mailbox to own!

Cute but poor quality
This mailbox is extremely cute and I get compliments on it all the time. However, within 2 months of having it, it broke beyond repair. Where the head "snaps" into the body to close the door contains a little ball on a spring. It was extremely hard to open at first and then the plastic piece holding the ball in broke. I tried gluing it with no luck. Now the head falls down all the time leaving my mail soaking wet anytime it rains. Love the mail box but will never buy another one again. Unfortunately I didn't have my receipt or the box it came in to try for an exchange and now 8 months later, I've had enough and am buying a new mail box, def not this one though!

1 of several i've owned
In th past few years I've had 3 of these mailboxes they work very well for the first several months, but due to weather conditions and location of this product after a while it will fade and the plastic hinge will crack after 2 or 3 yrs. overall it is a good product..
