What can I say? Does everything a bookend should, holds books and looks good. Customer service from IWOOT was excellent. They quickly and without fuss replaced one of the bookends I purchased with a fault in manufacture. Don't let that put you off as it would have been an a rare fault. The others of these I have are perfect. Price was also the cheapest I could find. So to sum up, excellent item, cheap price and top customer service. Please buy here.

Really impressed with this book end - it is a good size and weight and looks the part on the shelf. Arrived very promptly, well packaged. Would make a good present.

Left,Right Soldiers Don't Disappoint; IWOOT Surprise Again!
These sturdy book- ends were actually seen in a cookie little trendy shop selling at a significantly higher price. My other half took one look and loved them but my Christmas budget did not! After ordering standard delivery, this product (I ordered two- fairly mandatory as they pair up) arrived just two days later less than a week ahead of Christmas. This product not only has multi- purposes, (kitsch door stop anyone?) the deep green colour, quality and weight just make it one of our best purchases ever. Looks cool too. And pride of place!

Toy Soldier Shaped Book End Homeguard is a good present for my father. He liked it so much I had to buy another one to go at the other end of his bookshelf.

What a great product. It's hard to determine the build quality when making an online purchase but the Toy Soldier Shaped Book End Homeguard won't disappoint. He now stands proudly on my bookshelf at home (when he's not being picked up by people who are intrigued by him). A very tactile object, enjoy!
