    Bought as Gift

    from Tulsa, OK – Verified Buyer

    I have had a lucky cricket on my hearth for as long as I can remember. My parents gave it to me when I bought my first house, so I wanted to carry on the tradition and do the same with my children when they had their first homes. I think they think I was a little nuts, but anyway this cricket is heavy brass and should last a lifetime of moves. It was a little bigger than I would have liked it to be, but it serves its purpose well!

    from Allyn, WA – Verified Buyer

    This hearth cricket is much heavier than I expected. It is also very cute. Only down side is that one leg will not fully tighten up. It is securely screwed on but still moves. Pros: Cute as a bug. Cons: Loose leg.

    Very cute

    from Murrieta, CA – Verified Buyer

    This cricket is quite heavy! It looks great on the mantel of my fireplace. I was going to put it on the hearth but thought my dog might think it was a toy. It is a nice size and I would recommend to others.

    It was almost exactly as described, though a little more green than the photo. The antennas are a little fragile so be careful. Bought several to give away as gifts.
