This sleigh was used to take Santa pictures. It worked out very well and looks great in the pictures. Easy to put a chair behind it and have "Santa" sit, then have the kids just stand next to Santa.

Great Cardboard Sleigh
I bought this cardboard cutout sleigh for our church's Christmas play. It's made of very sturdy, heavy-duty cardboard and has fold-out cardboard supports that help it stand up without wobbling. The printed colors are very bright and crisp. The only problem we had was that it ships folded in half, and kept wanting to fold up in the middle while sitting on the stage. We solved this problem by duct-taping two wooden dowels across the unprinted side of the sleigh, to keep the sleigh from bending in the middle. That worked well and our show is this Sunday!

Got The Job Done
I purchased this sleigh as a prop to be used in my 2013 Christmas card photo shoot along with a few other props "and" ten poodles; standards, minis and toys. Yeah, crazy, I know. Our photo shoot took place outside, so my husband did reinforce our sleigh with some heavier cardboard to ensure it would not blow over, and it was a good thing he did as the day of our shoot was a bit windy. We were able to put a couple of benches "behind" the sleigh and sit some of our smaller poodles on them which gave the appearance they were riding "in" the sleigh. We had six standard poodles hooked up to the front of the sleigh taking on the role of "reindeer." I mean, it's a one-dimensional, cardboard sleigh, but it got the job done. Its colors are very pretty & vibrant and photograph well. A few members of my family are going to be using my sleigh for various photos over the next few weeks, so it's going to get plenty of miles on it. For the price, you can't go wrong, and the fact that it's life size was a plus for me. Considering the fact there was no way I was going to find a "real" Santa's sleigh without a trip to the North Pole, I was very happy with this purchase. . . and my Christmas card photo shoot was a success, so I'm going to have some awesome cards to send to my friends and family this year!

well worth it
Colors were intense & showed up well in our pictures. Oriental Trading included 2 bars to use to keep it propped open correctly.

Bought two of this cute sleigh for our Lighted Christmas Parade float. Everything was great until we realized that they were both for the left side. We ended up painting the back side of one of them red. It looked ok but would have been a lot better if these would have been available in an optional set.

Perfect size and very sturdy.
Each Christmas we design a holiday scene and take pictures of the dogs after we're done grooming them. This will work perfectly since we can easily switch out the chairs behind it depending on the size of the dog.

Loved my Sleigh display!
I wasn't sure on the quality of this product and have passed it over for years. This year I took a chance because of the reviews on it. Well I too loved the vibrant colors and the sturdy cardboard. I bought two and put a bench in-between for photo- ops. Well it was a hit! Everyone that came over put on a Elf or Santa hat on got in the sleigh 'for a ride'. What fun! I also got the Reindeers. I am posting a picture so you can judge for yourself.

Great for Christmas parade
I bought two of these for our float in the local Christmas parade. We put them back-to-back with a few 'gifts' in the middle to make it look like Santa's sleigh. The quality of the cardboard was nice and we got compliments on its appearance from those watching the parade.
In order to get the sleigh to stay on the float, my husband built a base out of 2x4 pieces for the sleigh to attach to and stand on. From there, all we had to do was screw it to the floor of the float, and we were set to go.
It rained the night of the parade. I was afraid the cardboard would be warped and ruined, but it held up great and I was even able to use it the next day for a prop in a photo shoot.
