This manger is ok. Not horrible; not great. Last year, I purchased the other cardboard manger that OT carries (as this one was not available), along with the stable. That manger was HORRIBLE - and way too huge. We used it, but once I saw this one, I thought it couldn't hurt to try. So I received it - and the box had been bent (just like the other manger's box was), which put a crease in the manger - right in the middle of it. OT needs to find some better way to ship these things. Like some seriously sturdy cardboard or something, because that's 2 different mangers in 2 years that both came bent. So anyway, a plus to this manger is that it was SO much easier to put together than the other one. Very simple fold/tuck method - took all of 2 minutes. And the size is definitely better than the other one. Much more on the scale of what it should be. Design is good - the faux straw is a nice touch, makes it look a tiny bit more real. For being made of cardboard, it's pretty good (except the crease).
