To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I expected this to be quite big (an ordinary traditional watering can size) but this is my mistake for not taking notice of the description dimensions. It seems to be more for children (the size) but it turns out to be a good size for what I need it for (to water about 5 plants). The downside to this watering can is the location of the watering hole on the beak - it's too high up the beak and not at the tip (the black bit). This makes it messy to water indoor plants after tilting the can back upright, water pours out without you wanting it to!
Looks great but not at all practical. The hole is much further up the beak than you'd expect. You therefore have to tip it much higher than you usually would and really navigate when to stop to prevent water everywhere. I've tried blocking the hole and creating my own at the tip of the beak but then the water keeps pouring even when you have stopped.
Really like the design and the price was great but as a functional product it doesn't really work. Bought it for my indoor plants as I use the hose outside. As mentioned in one of the other reviews, the hole is too far up the beak of the flamingo. You'd expect it to be at the black tip of it, but it's a good 2 inches higher then this which causes a lot of sploshing when you try and water the pots. Going to try and fix it myself with a drill and filling for the hole but I wouldn't recommend getting this product for indoor watering.
I bought this for a joke present for my boyfriend as he says I like unicorns too much, so I buy him flamingo related toot. It's actually a pretty good little watering can, but for good use, you need to drill/punch (safely) a few more holes around the beak as the water does not flow very well out of the end. Definitely no good for houseplants, but great for the garden pots and plants. Great value for money.
Probably designed by the same person who was behind the chocolate teapot and the inflatable dartboard.
Designed for the double jointed, you need to tip the 'watering can' to a near vertical angle to get any water to make it's way out of the spout. Be warned, when water does start coming out, the angle of the watering can is more likely to be aimed back at yourself rather than the plant. Be extra cautious of watering plants at table height, this may result in an unexpected wet crotch. Some might be into that, and if you are then this is a real bargain.
For those who enjoy the useless, this is a 5 star product without a doubt.
This is very cute and my grand children will love it but it is no use as a watering can as the water comes out of a hole on the top of the beak. You have to tip it practically upside down and then the water comes out in a stream. If you are just buying it for children to play with and not really use as a practical watering can it is fine.
I bought one of these for my mom when I went to Haworth in Yorkshire, a friend of my mom's loved the watering can so much that she wanted one. So I looked on Amazon and managed to get the exact same one. It is funky ideal for watering household plants and it does exactly what it is designed for. If you love flamingo's you will love this, I would recommend this to anyone.
As a few other reviewers have pointed out, there is just one hole at the top, no sprinkler and due to the position of the hole and the design of the can it is quite difficult to pour water. However this was just bought for a bit of fun and for that purpose it's great. If you want a serious watering can I wouldn't buy it for that.
