To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t 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.
Sending this back! When I pulled the bookends out of the packaging, my hands were covered in the black paint chipping off from the whale. I thought maybe it was just a fluke and it had lost some paint in the shipping. I put it on my bookshelf with my book to see how it looked and it got the same black chipped off paint all over my book and white bookshelf. I would not waste your time/money on this.
My Resin Whale arrived ahead of time. As described. Solid. No problem whatsoever. Matter of fact it's setting on top of my jet black Baby Grand Piano holding up books now. I would never have set it there right away, it had felt pads on the bases when it arrived. So all things considered, I love the little guy. G
