Comments about Product: I was very excited when I ordered these little bears for my grandsons. When they arrived they looked great and the sound was good. However I found out very soon that they do not activate with motion and in order for them to play you must turn the switch to either Christmas Music or standard songs. There is a sound control but even at the lowest setting is still pretty loud. For me this was very disappointing as I wanted to put this in the foyer to surprise my grandsons. Also I thought it would be fun for arriving guests who come to our annual Christmas Eve Buffet. At present I am torn as to whether I will keep them.
Comments about Product: I felt I had to write a review about this because I was misled by the product write-up. I had the impression these bears are motion activated to play- they do actually play their little xylophone, but the MODE of play is not motion-activated- it is OFF or CONTINUOUS. This was a problem for me because the lowest volume setting was still very loud, and the bears keep playing and playing. My little girls loved it, but I found it annoying and disruptive. Also, the base is very light weight cheap plastic (it does look nice, but it's plastic). The bears are lovely quality, but I would've preferred a wood base. I returned them.
Comments about Product: Arrived in secure, protective box . Product quality in visual appearance, sound and song selection better than I expected. Bought for holiday decor; may purchase as gifts for others .

Comments about Product: I have been looking for these for quite a few years. I have a really old one and have not been able to find a similar xylophone. The sound has improved greatly from my old one. I would definitely buy one again - it's a great gift.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
