I purchased this as a Mother's Day gift. My parents both loved it. We are Chinese and they of course instantly recognized and appreciated that it is bamboo. The sound it makes is soft and mellow. It looks fragile, but being bamboo it should be pretty sturdy (bamboo is used as scaffolding when constructing buildings in China). Just FYI, if you are looking to give it as a gift, it doesn't come in it's own box. It arrives wrapped in brown paper. Easy enough to just put it in a nice gift bag though.
I ordered this product for my mother's birthday. It's really cute. Yes, a small bird can use the birdhouse. The only issue I had was how the product was packaged for delivery. I feel lucky that the product wasn't ruined while in route to me. Besides that I would recommend this birdhouse wind chime.
This lovely chime was purchased as a gift for a relative's birthday. The bamboo features were a real hit and the sound from the chimes is quite enchanting. It really livened up the cornered it was hung in. Maybe a real bird may find it home!
I am very happy with my wind chime. It was made well, and is a decent size. It doesn't make much noise, but that's okay with me. I wanted it for decoration. If you are wanting to hear the classic wind chime sound, this product isn't for you. It has more of a low, hollow sound because of the bamboo it's made from. It must be made pretty well, because it survived a storm that took out our neighbor's huge maple tree. Pretty impressive.
Love the Asian style look and the sound of the bamboo wind chime, unfortunately the hole is very small so no birdies calling it home just the bees that made it's nest in it.
I love this wind chime!! just as pictured very nice!! I will be ordering another!
This is such an awesome wind chime, the sound from the bamboo tubes, is so calming, and subtle. When I hear the chimes, I feel that I have been transported to some virtual island paradise. Its really lovely.
I really love this little birdhouse wind chime! It currently hangs just outside the ext. door in the master bedroom. When the wind blows, the sound it produces is very calming and peaceful. I have a larger one that I also purchased from O.co and when you hear them both, it is a great blend of high and low intonation. It creates a very spa-like feeling, which is something you need when you are chasing around a 2 year old!!
i love this piece and it sits on my front porch. i do get comments about it. i just wish the chimes were a bit bigger as i have seen on other bamboo like chimes and when i got it from the package one edge was frayed up. all in all i like it, it does not move as much when the wind blows it has to be storm to actually get the full feel.
This wind chime has a beautiful tone and is well made. I have it hanging on my balcony and enjoy it's sound every day.
Although this is a unique chime in that it is also a birdhouse, I believe it is a bit overpriced. Mine is not tightly woven and some of the grass roof pieces were already broken when it arrived. I do believe it is good enough that a bird will use it to raise her young. I get wrens nesting in my ferns every spring and am very confident one will nest in this birdhouse chime. I have not yet hung the chime and therefore cannot comment on its sound. I am waiting until spring to hang it, because it is winter and we have been struck with some abnormally ugly weather here in Metro Atlanta. Although I believe this is overpriced and not so well made, I would buy it again and I would recommend it to a friend because it is unique; I have never seen another sold like this one. I wish Overstock would offer a better made birdhouse chime. I would even be willing to pay more for a sturdier one because I simply do not believe this chime will still be in tact a few years from now. I certainly would not even consider placing this anywhere except on a covered porch which is where mine will be.
Of course, I do not expect the bird house to be used, but I love the soft tones of bamboo chimes. Also, I am enamored with Island, exotic theme; it will look fantastic on the corner of my patio,
I just had 3 baby Carolina wrens leave my bamboo birdhouse chimes! So yes birds can use it if they choose to.
I use it inside around my bar and casino area....Have many different ones I have bought from Overstock and really like this one.....If your into wind chimes as I guess I am, you'll be pleased with this choice.
product looks good and is not one of those loud tinny sounding cheap looking pieces of ****!
I hope this item lasts for a very long time as it is the perfect size and the hollowed out bamboo makes a great tone. I know the birds will fight over this potential home come Spring. The value is very good and will go to excellent depending on how long it lasts.
great chimes PLUS we have birds nest in them every year..great natural additional to our back living area
If you love birdhouses and windchiimes -- you will LOVE this -- it is quite unique -- LOVE IT! The chimes are very soft -- very nice if you have higher winds and don't want to hear CLANG CLANG CLANG! :)
I ordered this as a gift and the person keeps it inside so I don't know how well it would hold up outside, but it looks great just like the picture! Looks like a souvenier you would buy on an exotic trip
I gave this as a gift to my parents and they are very happy with it. The wind chimes make a pleasant, delicate sound that isn't overly loud.
