Once set-up, it was really a nice addition to the outside decorations I already have. However, I needed to dig out a fairly deep hole to place it in, anchor the base with the anchors included, and then bury the base with a fair amount of soil.
But even with doing that, I had to use fine wire to attach it to a near-by banister to keep it from toppling over in even the slightest amount of wind. This product is definitely top-heavy.
Therefore, my suggestion for greater stability would be to allow the bottom of the base to be opened so you could add some type of ballast to it.
Also, the Santa Claus banner was a waste to install... it just blew all over the place and added to the instability of the post. It should have come with a way to attach the bottom of it to the base of the lamp pole to keep it from blowing in the wind.

We bought this and it wouldn't stay standing,the snowman banner kept falling off from the wind and then it just started falling apart and then the plastic banner broke off. Only one season and it went in the trash.

I bought this to use in a high school play. This is our second season and we love the look. It's perfect for our use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kris Kinda cheesy but still cool
The product is cute and can be used with other flags so that you can use it year round. It's plastic so I am sure it won't last as long as I would want it to. Very easy assembly. Comes with an extra light bulb, which is a plus. It comes with stakes to get it to stay stable but you still need to dig it down a bit to make sure it doesn't topple over. I got it on clearance after Christmas so the price was great. I would not have paid full price for it though. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Bill It's totally Plastic
You will have to modify this if you plan on placing it outside.
The stakes they give you will not stand in a 10 mile an hour wind.
Myself I bought for my haunted house during Halloween!
