Fairy of the West Wind Sitting Statue
Pros and Cons with this fairy
I absolutely love this fairy. She's gorgeous. With that said, there are some cons. The wings are not attached to the body and slide onto a slot to hold them. Use caution placing her outside. A good gust of wind or a heavy downpour and she'll end up on the ground or in a pond taking a swim like mine did. After so many times being flung to the ground, she and/or the wings will break. I currently have her at the front door minus her wings since they got broken and couldn't be fixed.

I love this fairy! I glued her to my front porch rail nestled in the shrubs so she can serenade us when we sit out at night. She is fun to look at and adds a whimsical touch to our private sitting area. Workmanship is beautiful and she is so serene looking and a real treat to have.

Pretty but fragile
I had had to replace this fairy twice and will not do so again. It is pretty but if it falls to the ground it will break especially around the arms and legs. At the moment I have two of them and I use gorilla tape to keep them stable but this is not ideal.

Just received my West Wind Fairy after looking at her on the website for quite a while. Packing was excellent; no damage at all. I tried the piece in several different places, inside and out, to find just the right setting. Right at the moment I have her perched on my balcony fountain. In my opinion, this sculpture shows better when she is higher than ground level (I am attaching a few pictures, lower to the ground and on the edge of my fountain, so you can judge for yourself). Taking another reviewer's advice, I ordered some spray sealant to protect her from the weather. Thinking of getting an outdoor spotlight to put on her at night. (I'm sorry I don't know why some of the pix came out sideways). Very charming, very lovely. I am waiting to see what the birds will think.....they use the fountain all day, every day!

Love this statue but....
I love this fairy sitting on my knee high garden wall, but she's been found broken a few times and then some. We keep glueing her using epoxy and she is ready and waiting for her 3rd summer. I bought from Amazon but she originally comes from Toscano. I purchased another fairy, a bit larger to sit near her. Just wish this resin were tougher. I would recommend her, but be careful where you put her and keep an eye out on her daily.

Initial issues corrected
I was disappointe when this item came out of the box. It was a Christmas present and when my wife opened it, the wings on the fairie were broken. However, when I contacted Toscano with my complaint, they were quick to offer to send replacement wings right away. The customer service was great. It took longer then I anticipated for the replacements to arrive but once they did, I was happy with the result.

Not for Outdoors, as advertised
The artistic work on the fairly is lovely. However, for as long as I waited for the product to be delivered, I was disappointed. She is too lightweight to put outdoors. I do not recommend if where you live is prone to high winds. She will not survive. Pretty but impractical. She now lives in my living room.

I was going to place her outside but I set her down on a dresser and there she sits! I would like a larger version for outside.
