from Baring PLT, ME on 06/17/2016 – Verified Buyer

Three stars because it's fun and different. But I've gotta be truthful. ( Well, I mean isn't everyone who bothers to write a review?!?) Minus the two other stars because it's a bit chintzy. "Buddy" is plastic pieced together, with a big seam from stem to stern, or head to toe, or even front to back. Yes, front to back. And, well, his arm seams weren't "welded" well. As well, (are you tired of reading the word well?) the most important part, (sorry Buddy) the center holder, hence, the word paper towel Holder, was floppy. I called for a replacement, and in all seriousness which isn't easy for me, the customer service was stellar! I'll not give up on you Buddy! Hope all goes "well" with the replacement! 'Nuff said~

Super cute

from Maple Grove, MN on 12/10/2015 – Verified Buyer

To be perfectly honest, this doesn't match my kitchen at all. My children thought it was cute, and since there are many new rules that come with a kitchen remodel, I got both the paper towel holder and the napkin holder for them. Turns out, they work well with the room. Plus, they add a bit of fun!

Pros: Well padded on the bottom so they won't scuff surfaces

Buddy grabs on to a full roll too tightly. I have to use a bunch first before I can put it on. It's also lightweight and not very functional. It does look great, but if you go to grab a sheet, expect to use two hands every time. I ended up breaking buddy off out of frustration, then I took him up to the roof and threw him off. After that, I chopped him in half with an ax.

Pros: Looks great
Cons: Not very functional

**UPDATE** my girlfriend was not very happy when she found buddy.

I love my little paper towel holder...it's different. I got the napkin holder also. I wish they had the S & P set also.

I love seeing this guy on my counter :) I gave him four stars b/c he is a bit loose, but that doesn't take away from his functionality. My boys love him, too!

I love the whimsy of this, but the center column is loose and wobbly and I can't figure out how to tighten it without pulling the rubber of the bottom. I also wish it was weighted better.

I bought other umbra buddy products. They are cute. It serves it's purpose.
