This is an adorable, detailed, holiday decoration. The elves are the cutest and their smiles brighten your day. I love the battery operated lights and how they change colors red and green - fascinating. The only downfall and the reason I gave 4 stars: the timer is defaulted to only 4 hrs and there is no function to keep on so its either 4 hrs on or off. I find myself picking it up constantly during the day to turn on. Its lovely lit and uses minimal battery usage. I'm afraid that by picking it up so often, I may drop it. Other than that, I love it!
