Adorable but practical conversation piece February 12, 2013
"I purchased four of these as gifts for my siblings (including two newlyweds), thinking everyone needs a nutcracker. :-) They seem solid, although I haven't actually tried cracking a nut with one (hence four stars instead of potentially five). The material is a beautiful gold-brown, like antique brass, just like the picture and blends in with any decor. Adorable, unique and practical, I think they'll be a big hit."

Wish the seam was better January 15, 2013
"I like this nutcracker although I haven't actually tried it out to see if it will crack a nut. The only negative is that the seam that runs down the center of the squirrel's body and face is not even. Had that been glued and put together better, I would've given it 5 stars. Cute though"

dys-functional squirrel January 11, 2013
"Although very cute, this little squirrel cannot crack it. It work only on good-sized walnuts. Any small or irregular nuts (filberts, almonds or Brazil nuts) just slip around and the squirrel can't get a grip on them. I must say though, returning it was a very pleasant and easy process. Thank you."

Great for nut lovers! January 04, 2013
"I got this for my husband at Christmas. He loves it! He eats walnuts & pecans all the time. The squirrel looks so much better on my island then the nut crackers did. And according to my husband works a whole lot better than the regular nut crackers."

Very cute but ineffective January 02, 2013
"This is an adorable, heavyweight, and nice sculptural piece. However, it does not perform very well as a nutcracker, which is rather unfortunate. I would not recommend this product if you actually want it to function as a nutcracker."

A little flimsy looking but hopefully will hold up January 02, 2013
"The two sides of the mold this squirrel was made of visibly do not meet, leaving a line down the middle of the figure. It feels hollow in the middle and I hope this will not make it too brittle; only time will tell. It is cute, though."

Cute and durable January 02, 2013
"Fun little thing that was an inside joke with my family because this guy replaced a brass squirrel nut cracker of a different design."

Cute but not functional December 30, 2012
"It's pretty hard to crack a nut. Nuts continuously slip out of grip. It does look cute."

Quality material but not functional December 30, 2012
"This nutcracker is adorable, and made of heavy-duty cast iron, but it does not crack nuts, other than a perfect sized walnut. There is a small divet that the smaller nuts slip into and slide away from the "paws" which are intended to crack the nut. So, while a great novelty and attractive piece, I would not recommend for its intended purpose."
