Made Terrific Scarecrow
My husband and I made a wonderful fellow from this form. Bought old overalls and shirt at thrift store.. I sewed hay in the hat for hair and sleeves and pants bottom. Rope belt and paisley scarf around the neck. Used it in front yard for three or four weeks last year and got many nice compliments. It disassembled and stores well. Love it.

Cute idea but welding needs improvement - dont' forget cable ties!
When installed into the ground it can barely stand alone the wind knocked it over and broke the welds on the legs and frame for arms it is poorly made and I do not recommend to purchase. We were able to rebuild it with cable ties and drilling new holes and purchasing better screws.

Upon decorating this form and putting the clothes on before i could even put the hat on the cheap, cheap weld broke holding the head form so there for my grandson was so disapponted that he was not going to able to display this.

This frame works very well in making a scare crow.

It did what I needed it for
I bought 50 of these frames for an event I ran. Most of them worked. There were problems with screws that were painted over so they would not turn, parts that snapped, and an occasional part that was missing. But as I said, most of the frames were fine and the event turned out great.
I will be returning the broken frames and I am sure that Terry's Village will credit my account.

While this product looks nice online or in the magazine, once I received this product it was so cheaply made I couldn't believe it. As others have mentioned, the screws will only tighten down so much, which is not adequate for really tightening the pieces together. In addition, this form is so flimsy that even when put into the ground it can barely stand alone. Poor quality product -- do not recommend to purchase.

great idea, but design problem
I purchased this frame because I make a scarecrow each year for my husband's office. My big problem is being able to stabilize it to stand alone. I was hoping this would help. The problem is that the screws only tighten up against the inserted pipe piece &that does not hold it in place, especially the legs. I could not keep the two leg joints together no matter how tight I screwed them down. So I got one of those extendable poles that mops & sponges fit on & ran it up through one of the lg. noodles & duct taped it to the sides of the upper body frame. Then I duct taped the two leg joints together & taped them to the noodle & the back of the shoe so that I could put that in the ground. Good idea, but needs a better way to attach the joints.
