I am usually in love with all the Frontgate Xmas items. When I saw this tree online, it was just what I wanted until it arrived. Its rather easy to put together. Four sections fit into one another and then plug in the lights and lots of fluffing and bending. However, it is about 1/2 as full as pictured in the photo and video. The light strands are wired and are really visible (loose) along the branches and just a jumbled mess along the trunk until its lit. There is definitely a "back" to this tree. In fact, there is a branch missing in the back so if you plan on putting this somewhere with a 360 degree view, forget it. You have to spin the sections to the back and try to hide the jumbled mess of cords. I was able to hide them some with huge ornaments. I started to have doubts when I began fluffing and bending the branches. They do look life like on the front 2/3 of the branch but in the back, its that cheap greenery. Only the main stems have wire, the little branches off the sides are just molded plastic and a few snapped off in my hand. I will not be taking this thing apart for that reason. I'm afraid over time all those little tiny branches will snap off. With Frontgate, I would have expected better. Though there is no shortage of lights and they are bright. I do love the fact that it comes with a remote. This tree is still better than what I would have gotten locally but I'm just glad I got it on sale and didn't pay too much. The quality does not warrant the high price tag. I considered returning it but as the box is longer than I am tall and weighs in at close to 80 lbs. it wouldn't have been worth it. Lots of large filler and balls has made it attractive but will think twice before ordering another tree. Just not the same fullness and quality I have come to expect from Frontgate.
Pros: bright lights on remote control, easy assembly
Cons: Appearance, limbs snap off, wired lights visible, not as pictured (fullness)

Is that a hole in the base of the tail as seen in the zoom on the picture?

When you use the zoom feature, where the tail meets the hind there appears to be a hole.
