    Promising review: "Looks absolutely beautiful in my baby's room! Difficult to line up at first but after the first few we got the hang of it. I will say the pattern is very forgiving.

    Promising review: "I love this tissue box! My office is what I call the “quirky” room in my house, and this fits in perfectly. When I first opened the package, I wasn’t impressed thinking the plastic was all scratched. Turned out that each square has protective plastic on it to prevent just that. It’s sturdy and well made. I also love that it has a bottom cover that attaches with tiny magnets because it keeps the tissue box from falling out whenever you pick it up. Highly recommend!" —PamelaJR

    Promising review: "I haven't had it for very long but so far I am a huge fan of this terrarium. It's a beautiful design and the door blends in seamlessly while still being easy to open and close. I got it for my little bonsai tree because I live in a very dry climate and it's doing a good job at maintaining the humidity. It isn't watertight so the water evaporates eventually, but that's ideal for this situation. I was worried that the door would be too small to get the tree inside but it's two panels wide so it makes it really easy to move things around inside." —Kelly
