August 13, 2015 - I was very happy to receive a red heart.Also received an orange heart. Great for a present for a loved one. Very tactile!

July 20, 2015 - Got two of them now they work so well!!

May 27, 2015 - I love these hearts! I plan to buy more. My son is giving one to his girlfriend. Got the stickers off pretty good. Unique!

April 14, 2015 - Love the hearts (I have 3); hate the sticker. Will try the olive oil technique another reviewer mentioned.

April 23, 2014 - Received my hearts in the mail last night. Dark blue, orange and teal. The carving goes up and down instead of across on all 3. Very pretty fat little hearts. The sticker is a pain. I got as much as I could off and then used a tiny bit of olive oil - rubbed it over what sticky was left and then scratched the rest off easily with my nail. I wiped the heart dry with paper towel. The tiniest bit of orange color came off with the oil, but not enough to see any discoloration on the heart. I have found oil to be the best remover for price stickers - no harsh chemicals.
