Darling! Pencil holder is good sized and heavier than I expected, which is good, because it doesn't tip over at all! I received it 3 business days after I ordered it. Didn't like: 1. the way the mouth was painted (looks dirty but I can fix that) 2. The head and paws of the dog are kind of big (3 x 3" x 2" deep) which makes it a little difficult to reach your pencils. So no big deal - just turn the pencil holder a bit to make it easier. I am glad I bought it.
