Although the quality of this was good and sturdy, it's really small. Height is measured to top of sign/hand not what pumpkin rests on. Will need to use small pumpkin. Customer service was outstanding and made this right.

So perfect for what I wanted!
I bought this with the intention of using a fake pumpkin mostly because it's hard to find the right taller shaped pumpkin. I ended up seeing a fake carved pumpkin that lights up at Target to use with this. It's PERFECT! I'll probably keep it indoors since my kids love seeing it and will maybe use it on the porch on Halloween.

Cute but kinda flimsy
A friend of mine has this and told me she loves it, so i ordered one. I like the design of it, but i wish it was a thicker iron, more sturdy & taller. it's kind of short and i wonder if a pumpkin will be able to sit on it. I'll definitely have to use a small pumpkin.
It is cute though. i nice item to have outside.

This looked so cute - had to give it a try. It is really small and quite unstable. It requires additional support with a pumpkin added (becomes way too top heavy) - blows over really easily. All that said, it is an entertaining item (kids love it), but a tad overpriced for what you get. It works fine if you have it inside, but if you're like me, you bought it to have it displayed outside for the trick-or-treaters.

Be sure to read details
I love the idea of this, however be sure to read the description of the item. It will only fit certain sizes of pumpkins and it is rather small. I am keeping it and going to place it on a bale of hay to lift it up. A little pricey.

I couldnt wait to open this when it cam in the mail he is so cute and its going to look cute for all Trick-or-Treaters to see.. Only thing about this is knowing its on the small side, you dont realize how small it is until you get it. More then likely I will use a fake pre-carved pumpkin on this because I dont think it can support much weight. also if you want to use it every day of october then you will need too anyways. I dont know if it could even hold a small normal pumpkin but we shall see.. none the less he is very sweet and is going to look good out side. cant wait to put him up

Cute Halloween accent
I purchased this 2 1/2 years ago and have used it for the past 2 Halloweens. I actually have 2 of them. One I kept and used as inside decorations and the other I placed on my front steps next to my front door. It is very easy to assemble and use. My only suggestion would be to get a pumpkin of medium size to help balance it. I've noticed that small pumpkins don't look right on this item and larger pumpkins make it top heavy and it tends to tumble over. I have received SO many compliments on this over the past couple of years.

As it turned out, my carved pumpkin was too heavy for this holder, but I put a smaller plain pumpkin that I had bought for decoration on it and it worked perfectly! The quality is better than I anticipated for the price. It is so cute -- and really looked great greeting little visitors to our house on Halloween!
