I read all the reviews prior to purchase and formulated a plan to try to preserve Spike as I live on top of a windy hill close to the ocean and its corrosive influence. Before Spike arrived, I purchased a can of RustOleum Gloss Clear from the big home improvement store with the orange trim. RustOleum claims the product "Seals, Protects & Revitalizes.Before assembling Spike I gave all parts two coats of Gloss Clear and one final coat after assembly. Furthermore I made sure to apply a good coat to the nut and threaded propeller shaft. Hopefully that will prevent the nut from backing off and loss.I then placed a pre-stained 3/4" x 36" dowel in a small concrete foundation in the front yard. The 3/4" dowel fits nicely inside the tubular 3-piece post that comes with Spike and gives the Whirligig a bit more height for better visibility.Each evening I bring Spike in when I take down the American Flag to further reduce corrosion and prevent theft.Spike is a big hit with me and the passing walkers and joggers who frequently stop to chat about Spike when I'm working in the garden.

The whirligig was easy to assemble. We put in the front yard, but in only one day the wind caused it to break. Specifically, one of the tiny welds broke. [...] It operates just fine in light wind, but goes like crazy in high winds, threatening to shake it apart. I would recommend putting it on a protected patio so that it gets only light wind. It is too fragile to leave out in strong wind. It is a good purchase if you keep it in a light wind area only.

Comments about Plowhearth Garden Whirligigs:
I have several problems. Can't make the whirligig stand up. Top is to heavy and no matter what I do it falls down. The fan blades were hard to get on but when I did the animals will not go up and down like they are meant to do. Guess I will return.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy set-up, but hummingbird broke off with first wind. Not a storm mind you, but just a little harder than a breeze. Nice to look at, but flimsy.
Great addition to my garden

Fan whirls perfect with the wind. Hummingbird works perfectly. Great to look at in my front yard. Love it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Wish it really worked
from Clinton, AR
Such a great idea, but it needs help. The tail needs to be bigger to turn the plane into the wind, and the mechanism that turns the prop and makes the figures move needs to have less friction, or something, so it will work in normal winds other than hurricane force winds. I hope they update it so it could become a real whirligig .

colorful, fun, but a little awkward on the post for spinning, could be more secure but overall good!

Has caused a lot of convesations on how much fun it is to have people see it.

I have Spike and he works great!
from Salt Lake City
Since it comes with extra nuts, put an extra on the front and back of the propeller to lock everything together. (two nuts on each side, tighten with needle nose pliers) Then put just a drop of crazy glue on them.This thing goes nuts in the high winds! I'm convinced Spike will break his earthly tether and launch himself one day.
makes a cute gift

About Me Budget Shopper
I gave this whirlygig (the one of the Flying Ace dog) to my neighbor for her garden. She loves it but I've noticed that it doesn't spin even in a strong wind. but it's really cute. We'll see how it holds up over time. It may need a coat of clear shellac to maintain the color.
Very cute stuff
from Keller, TX
Very cute. Love the design. However, the blades keep falling off and it's very easy to lose the screws. They give you 3-4 of them. My husband finally figured out a way to keep the blade from falling off, but now it just stays in one position. Not recommended for strong windy areas.

Great gift for the person with everythin
I purchased this for a friend not knowing what was happening her life, she had hit a low point, but this whirlajig was just something silly to help her mind go other places.... perfect timing.
from Hillsborough, NJ
This is very cute. The design is no good. I guess the propeller is too heavy to spin. I have other types near it and they spin with no trouble at all.

Not Just Blowing Smoke!
By Jean Bean
from Sagamore Hills, OH
The train whirligig was given as a Christmas gift to my niece, who is an avid gardener. She loved the design and look. Since we have been buried in snow thus far, she has not had a chance to install the whirligig in her yard. I'm sure she will let me know how the whirligig is working once she's had a chance to assemble it.Won't be able to comment on the quality or durability until I hear from my niece.
I would buy this product again
from chepachet, ri
Bought for the grandparents that have eveything and they loved it.
gift for my husband, he loves it
starting to circle our pool and patio with different designsgreat conversation pieces
I bought this for a gift. I was skeptical as some of the reviews haven't been that great. But because he's an older gentleman and loves trains, I got it for him. Opening it out if the box seemed fragile and was scared it would be easily bent. The paint job was good and once put together it seemed like it would work well as all the parts moved as they should. Not too sure I would purchase again.
Great for a windy yard

I HAVE NO IDEA, I PURCHASED FOR A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR MY DAUGHTER AND SHE IS WAITING UNTIL IT GETS WARMER TO PUT IT OUT. SHE DOES LOVE IT, SHE I PURCHASED THE HUMMINGBIRD AND HER GARDEN ARE FULL OFT THE REAL ONES.

Sits outside our kitchen window and is enjoyable to watch while doing dishes, kitchen prep, etc. Our grandson is a train fanatic and just loves it, as well.

Does not work
Bought this thinking my 2 yr old grandson would enjoy it - and he does. But it does not work. The only time it gets propelled by the wind is in a severe wind storm, and then the propeller comes off. We play with it by spinning the propeller by hand. Unhappy with it, but not enough to send back. But would not recommend or buy another.
So Much Fun
from Lawrenceville, Ga
This Whirly-gig makes me smile every time I look at it and when winter is completely over, outside it goes, into the garden.
Nice Looking but...
By John the Gardener
from Astoria, Oregon
Instructions were not clear on how to assemble propeller. Wings fall off and propeller doesn't turn so the thing does nothing...
Perfect addition to garden!

from Moyie Springs, Idaho
I have a 'secret garden' for the grandkids and this whirligig adds just the right whimsy to the area and the kids love it! I'm sure more of these will find their way to my garden this year!
will not twirl
from South jersey
So far the blade part does not turn with wind -- only by hand. So it does not work as described
not up to P&H quaility standards
from Gettysburg, PA
I received the classic saw men model as a Christmas gift.The propeller fell off the first day. Fixed by putting lock tight on locking nuts.Now two weeks later after plenty of wind the saw men do not move anymore, only the little squirrel goes up and down.Very inferior quality made in [*] item....[...]rlewis7575[@]

I have always admired Plow and Hearth's catalog and line of merchandise; however, on my first attempt at ordering I found the quality of two items lacking - one of which was the whirligig. I ordered the Aviator and it just doesn't work; plus it was given as a gift [...]
liked it enough, i bought 6 more
from harvard, illinois
great deco. enjoy watching no matter what the weather is. the size of it is perfect. i do wish you would come out with bigger sizes and more styles so when they are a little farther away from the patio and in different surroundings that bring them out more
