Comments about Product: It looks very nice and shines brightly. The only problem is the snowmen should be individually wrapped for shipping. The first one I received, one of the snowmen was missing a hand. I called and received a replacement promptly, but that one also had a snowman with a missing hand. I found the hand in the packing and super glued it. Hopefully it stays since this is a gift.
Comments about Product: Purchased the snowman mobile as a gift for my husband to add to our outdoor decorations. Disappointed in the battery life and two of the arms were broken off when it arrived. We managed to find one in the box and glued it back on. We felt it wasn't worth the money we would spend to return it. Overall they are cute and last much longer with better replacement batteries. Bottom line, upgrade the batteries and package it better.

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!
