Excellent quality and value, but gives off a STRONG rubber odor that takes weeks to dissipate. We let it air out outdoors for a week before bringing it inside and, after several weeks, the odor, while greatly diminished, is still noticeable.
The frog isn't as adorable as some of the other animal boot and shoe scrapers, but he may be more practical. He has 4 rubber nubs under him, to help keep him from slipping around while you use him. He is also wide and low to the ground, so he doesn't tip over. He is perfect as an occasional shoe scraper that you have out for looks. (If you need a heavy duty boot scraper, I wouldn't get the type shaped like an animal.) We keep him on a stone step outside of a cabin to greet guests and provide light shoe scraping.
I purchased this rug received it in a few days. I am so amazed by the quality of the rug that I almost thought I got the wrong rug. It is so much nicer in person than in the picture. I love the pattern because it is so classic and simple and yet it can be used in more modern or semi modern settings. It works in most spaces even a kitchen. The color is a royal color which just screams elegance. I would highly recommend it .
