Pink Flamingo Yard Ornament with Seasonal Clothing
Flamingo Dress Up
We have had a blast dressing up "Flavio." This is really hysterical. The tiny costumes are much more detailed than I expected and perfectly scaled. i only wish there were more. Our kids love surprising us with costume changes each morning when we leave for work. Forget about Barbie! We have not had any problem with the beak paint peeling so perhaps the factory has fixed this. The perfect tongue in cheek gift or party decoration -- I can't wait to buy more for gag gifts for friends. The best part is for admirers to be surprised each time the costume is changed! I think the Thanksgiving outfit complete with elaborate pilgrim robe and faux turkey tail, and pilgrim hat with a little red wattle under the chin, is the best!

Yes, the black paint comes to you cracked and peeled. I just brushed it off and stuck it out in the yard anyway and it's still hilarious. I'll get around to repainting it some day. The clothing that comes with it is surprisingly well-made and worth the purchase price alone.

I gave this as a gift. I was very embarrased when the black paint on the beak began falling off as my friend touched it.

This is one of the funniest things I've ever done for myself. I have a camper in my friend's back yard & bought this to class the place up a bit. Opened it Christmas morning & we all cracked up laughing at his little outfits. My friend's husband named him Flamingo Floyd & now it's a big joke that he's my boyfriend! I'm even going to make him a few more outfits & publish a Flamingo Floyd calendar(I'll send you one). The quality is great, the outfits awesome, & I would urge anyone to buy this flamingo!! Thanks & keep adding flamingo's to your stock & I'll keep buying them.

The outfits were cute, but all of the black paint was chipping off.

This is a fabulous addition to the rest of my holiday decorations. I live in Colorado and it is a little out of the norm for them to be in the yard. However, They are a huge hit! You will see him in the upper right hand corner of the yard.

My family and I think this is adorable. There are many outfits for any season. The flamingo is big enough to be seen on our porch from the street. Very funny.

This is a replacement for one I have had for about 4 years. My daughter ran over the last one backing out of the garage. I live in Florida so the only real problem is the pink fades but I just love this thing. In fact, I have purchased two others as gifts for friends and they love them too!

Best thing ever!
I read the reviews, but I have had no problem with the paint at all. And for the price (basically a buck a piece), the outfits are FANTASTIC! My friends' hounding me to get her one for Christmas now that she has seen mine. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!

I collect flamingos so finding this one with the seasonal outfits was great. I read the other reviews saying the paint chipped off the beak, so I was prepared for that. I honestly didn't think it would start chipping right out of the package, but it did. Oh well. I still love it and love all the outfits. I do think $19.99 is too much to charge for an item that is obviously so poorly constructed. Maybe you could throw in a little can of black paint to repair the paint that chips off.
