Does not spin anywhere near as fast as my old one. The little guys are cute.
Like other reviewers said, it's smaller than it looks but I really like the Scandinavian look and feel of it and it's fun to watching spinning.
I bought one for both me and my daughter-in-law. I had mine out when she was here and she loved it even before I lighted it. So I gave her hers early. She was thrilled.
Cute, new look to an old favorite angel spinning candle decoration. I bought them for gifts.
This is a cute little decoration but very fragile. You need small hands to put it together. Doesn't spin as fast as I thought it would, and much smaller than I thought. A bit too expensive.
Just looking at this little Christmas item makes me happy. I just love it. It is very delicate and doesn't like to be moved around.
It is much smaller than I expected Cute, but teeny..
UPS will not accept the return label provided.
Should say what country it is imported from.
Although the Spnning Nisse Teal Light Holder is very cute, the description in the catalog was a bit deceiving. It said "From Sweden". Yes, it came from Sweden, but it was made in China. Because of that, I'll be keeping it for myself instead of giving it as a gift as planned.
While the price is a little high and I expected it to be larger, I've gotten so much enjoyment out of this that I leave it where I can see it all year. I don't use it with a candle but let either the air, wind, or ceiling fan spin it. This year I bought three more for others I know who I think will appreciate the simple enjoyment of seeing Santa spin!
VERY CUTE BUT VERY SMALL
The Nisse tea light holder is entrancing, and I have purchased one for each of my grown children and their families. The small candle makes the Nisses spin very easily, and during the day, mine sits on the windowsill and spins slowly in the sunlight (or perhaps it is the drafty window!!). My only disappointment (hence the 4 instead of a 5) is the small size (6 1/2"), and lack of the bells found on the angel chimes.
Though a little smaller than I expected, this charming little holiday whimsy brought back memories of my childhood. It will be a part of our holiday decor for years to come!
This is a really cute Christmas item and works well -- however, we were disappointed to find there are no "tinkling chimes" and the little figures are quite fragile and easy to bend. Buy with that knowledge and you'll be pleased.
I just love this item. It's delicate and you have to be careful not to bend the pieces while putting it together, but it's really great.
It was exactly what it had appeared to be and my grandchildren loved it. i
adorable table decoration. spins wonderfully and adds cheer.
I love this, even the small size. Bought 2, and they are perfect as part of my Christmas table centerpiece. If they were larger, they'd be "too much." Message for Chef Andy, who said his didn't spin: You need to be sure the pole is turned the right way. Mine didn't spin either till I realized that, and then they turned perfectly, for hours on one tealight candle.
A cute German variation for the Swedish candle holder I have that spins around. Compact for the person who does not want clutter. Safer than traditional candles. Worth the price despite being very small.
I love this because it reminds me of the shapes we saw in Alaska on the light posts and in Quebec that were hanging over the streets.
I like the tea light holder, but was very disappointed when I opened the box and read "made in China". The catalog said "made in Sweden" and that was the main reason I ordered it.
Got as a gift for my daughter, and it's really small and kind of shabbily made for the price.
My friend told me that its just what she wanted and it works perfectly.
perfect, feels like Sweden when the Tomtens turn, turn, turn
Very cute but much smaller than I expected (I should have read the specs more closely). But quite charming!
I should have read the specifics about this - it is really tiny and fragile. Other than that, I like it.
I bought this to go in my Santa collection. I didn't realize it's so dinky. I haven't lit it yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing it spin. It's a nice quality, well made, little jewel.
This is very cute and unlike others. It works perfectly, my grandchildren were enchanted. It is important to follow the directions that are included so that it works correctly.
Wow! I gave this to my daughter for her first apartment. Half an hour later she sent me a video of it spinning around. Very cute and she loves it.
I really liked the cute, unique item and it was a great price too! I bought 3 and gave them as gifts!
I like the idea... As a matter of fact I have a large, spinning angels, one that works with four candles. So, I was a bit skeptical about this working with a single tea light. Well, I hate to say this, but it doesn't spin... It just sits there. Pity. I've tried different tea lights; even tried to raise the tea light up closer to the fan... nothing.
