This ornament is really cute. I bought it for my husband in spite of the reviews that said it came broken. Ornaments represent the things we love throughout the year and I wanted rafting to be represented on our tree. And low and behold the ornament I bought for him came broken. I didn't want to mess around with returns so I gave it to him broken and said we'd glue it. The ornament is only meant for hanging, it doesn't sit on a flat surface, which is why I think it breaks so easily.
It's a cute ornament, but very fragile.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
