Uncle Sam Flag Holder
don't waste your money
Ordered 6/10/14 I thought it would be bigger, the flag came in splintered pieces 6/13/14 I had to send it back. Meanwhile Uncle Sam came 6/20/14, still waiting for the flag. Picked up the resin statue to place it where I wanted it and the hat came right off like it was meant to or something. Needless to say it has been about a week and I no longer have the box so I can't send it back. Cheap resin!! Way to expensive! Uncle Sam standing without a flag 6/27/14.

Uncle Sam arrived undamaged & looks just like the picture in the catalog.
Uncle Sam is a good addition to my "Americana" decorations. He looks better setting on a pedestal so he is more easily seen. It wasn't too much trouble to add "stuffing" so that the flag was positioned to my liking. I am happy to have him!

This is the 3rd one I have purchased. The other 2 broke easily especially the hat area. I glued one of them but the last one was beyond hope so I ordered another and throw away the broken one. it is really a cute statue but fragile.

Updated review after receiviing replacement
Received the replacement shipment to replace the originally broken one. It arrived intact but, I still believe this product needs better packaging to safeguard from breakage. This is a cute character but it is lightweight and may not withstand a good wind. It's size may be better suited for a table-topper versus a yard ornament. The flag is never going to stay put in the hole that is contained within the hands. It needs some kind of putty or tape to keep it in place. Overall, I like the piece as a table decoration.

Does not hold up to weather
I am on my second one of these (what possessed me to spend $32 on a second one is beyond me, but I loved him). My first blew over in a storm, and basically broke into pieces. The one I have currently is pretty much on his last leg. He's been blown over in weather and has chipped, cracked, and now he is missing a piece, so he has a hole in him. He's hollow, and the resin is more like cheap plastic. Not a good product at all.

Smaller than I imagined it would be, It arrived broken in the hands and legs area. Packaging of this item should be better. Customer service was great and are sending me a replacement but it will arrive after Memorial Day, so I guess I will use it for Fourth of July. Also the little hole for the flag to sit in isn't good enough to hold this flag. Might need to use some kind of putty to make it stay put. It is very lightweight too so not really great for the front yard with the wind. Maybe better as a table display. Will write another review after I receive the replacement.
