Battery Powered Mantel Houses (set of 4)
I love these houses
because they are so easy to display and are very nicely decorated. I collect these and the prcie is very reasonable.

Just What She Wanted!
I purchased this set for my wife for Christmas and she stated that it was exactly what she wanted. Lucky me.
The only thing that was a little disappointing was that the bases on each house were made of flimsy cardboard and the houses did not sit flat. However, since she will be using them on a towel base, she said that was not a problem.
They look nice and they look more attractive than I thought they would. I would recommend this product.

Gave them as a Christmas present to my friend. She collects them & thought they were beautiful. She loved the way the lights changed color in the houses.

Beautiful and sparkly
These houses are beautiful. What you don't get to see in the picture is how sparkly they are. I just love them. And the fact that they light up is an added bonus. Good quality product.

Had High Hopes!
I purchased this item with full knowledge of what other reviewers were saying, but as I said, "I had high hopes." Upon opening and reviewing these houses I switched them all on and one of my houses wasn't working. I took the small "hearing aid" style batteries out and exchanged them with batteries from another house and it worked. So it was not the house, it was the batteries. Already have STRIKE 1; set of batteries were not tested properly, or it was left in the "on" position and sent out faulty. Onto set-up... as I was placing my houses where I wanted them, one of the "hot glued" light/battery holders that is glued to the bottom of each house came undone and needed to be "re-glued!" STRIKE 2! I have yet to hit STRIKE 3, but am sure that by the time I clean up Christmas that something else will happen. You must remember, these are made out of cardboard and are very flimsy. Almost reminded me of a school project one of my kids did in elementary school. They look quite pretty in the add and they actually are from a distance, but once you get closer and pick them up you realize what poor quality they actually are. I hope this review helps others in the future.....

This. Product is okay
The problem I have with this item is that the houses did not have the cotton in the chimneys. That is really no big deal, I can always get cotton. The other problem I have with this item is with the large house. The fence is cracked at the corners. I think that the manufacturer should either make the fence out of plastic or make the fence out of four pieces instead of two pieces.

Perfect, cozy houses for holiday cheer!
When I saw these in the catalog I knew immediately that I 'had to order them'! They were so beautiful shown in the catalog.....and even more so 'in person'!!! They are magnificent in design, color, and appearance of winter...with 'snow' on the roofs...right down to cotton 'smoke' coming from each chimney. And....here's the bonus: No ugly cords to fiddle with in order to light them up! Just a click on the bottom switch puts on the changing lights inside. I just can't wait to set them up at Christmas. I will then turn out all the lights in the room, light my houses, sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy! Thanks for a quality product!!!
