Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ellyn Cute and inexpensive
They give off a good enough glow and have stood up to a little rain and wind just fine. Would buy them again.

Product is hard to assemble the first time, but gets better as time goes on. Heavy wind gusts where I live blow the units down and apart. They are undamaged and can always be re-assembled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPNavarre Solar light right!
I had my doubts when I only paid $5 for this light. I figured it would either fall apart or not work at all. I'm glad I chose to buy it. It works great and glows a nice soft multi-colored light. I will buy more if offered at this price again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by buddy So glad I bought these
Now I wish I would have bought more. They look great hanging around our hot tub. The changing color option is a plus. A snap to assemble and hang...brings that special effect to the area.

While these are typical low budget "plastic" pieces they have surprised me continuing to work for a third summer. The changing color feature has been a hit with the neighbors too!

Sorry for the bad review but I had to bring it back to the store. Even after charging for a few days (yes, I did take off the battery guard thing and even remove and reinstall the batteries), it didn't light up. It lit up for a few seconds once ... also, as other reviews mentioned, the plastic "spine" that holds the lantern open was too long for the lantern.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jlinamen Fun BUT....
I purchased 3 dozen of these (on sale) and used them last summer. Appearance-wise they are cool and fun... until they get dirty which happens quickly if you leave them outdoors. They come shipped flat and there is a poorly fitting, weak plastic stretcher stick that goes inside to maintain the 'open' shape. Be careful, if you drop one or it falls to the ground it WILL lose its shape and it is almost impossible to get back. The rechargable batteries are cheap and don't last long. I had to buy a charger and new batteries for them to work as the solar recharging was too limited. The plastic hangers are kind of fragile too. I had four break leaving no way to hang them. Also, not bright if there is any other light around and will not light up if light is hitting the solar panel.
The lanterns are fun and can create a nice atmosphere but they are fragile and not intended for extended use based on the quality of the construction. Most people will consider them too expensive for the actual use you get out of them.

My husband and I bought 10 lanterns without a specific purpose in mind. I put them together in a few minutes and hung them on the tree outside my window to get charged up and to see if they worked. They are so pretty that I have not moved them. I enjoy seeing them hanging on the tree every time I go past the window and they look great from the street. The light lasts all night long so that when i get up before the dawn, the lanterns are still shining brightly. We wished we bought another 10.
