Rated 4 out of 5Â by ClothesHorseMom Cute, but...
These are undeniably cute. They are much more sturdy than they appear online, and I'd have no qualms about using them in the kitchen. However, they're kind of worthless as measuring cups. I tried to use them to measure 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips today, filling them only to the marked internal line, saw that the resulting pile looked quite large and remeasured with my stainless steel cups. The hedgies had measured out almost a full cup more than I needed...there was 2 1/4 cups in my pile!
These are cute and will be used for nut or olive bowls, but I certainly won't use them when any accurate measurements are needed.

I ordered these online and while they are super adorable and feel very well made, the two larger measuring cups arrived broken. Since I live in Canada and my local store is sold out, I have to wait until the March backorder to receive my replacement. Customer service was very helpful in filing a report and putting me in the queue for a replacement set.
Please pack these better prior to shipping! They each deserve their own wrapping paper and bubble wrap all around... my set came with each hedgehog nestled in each other in a box, placed in a much larger box with large air pocket wrapping that didn't fill the whole box and no "Fragile" marked outside. I could hear the broken ceramic shards clinking around before I even opened the larger outside box.
I am keeping my fingers crossed my replacement set will arrive safely. These are super adorable and I would love to display them in our glass cabinet.

I ordered these cute little guys about a week back, and although one of them arrived broken due to the mailman's mishandling, I couldn't stop raving about how adorable they are!
I did have to take them back to the store to get them replaced but in the short time they were with me they caused quite a commotion! I won't be using them for backing but these serve perfectly as little serving dishes! They are sturdy and have no problem standing on their own, they do seem a little on the fragile side but with careful handling that shouldn't prove to be a problem. Overall very happy with this product.
