This is a review of the Globe Imports Sea Turtle Cast Iron Door Stop
This is a turtle door stop made from cast iron and features three turtles stacked on top of each other. The door stop is also finished off with a with a blue verdigris patina.
The door stop that looks bigger in the pictures but you'll still be impressed. It measures 5.75 inches tall by 3.75 inches wide. It's size also makes it suitable for other uses such as a bookend or paper weight.
This door stop is not particularly heavy but the fact it is made from cast iron and has a strong wedge underneath will keep light doors open and is surprisingly stable for a tower of turtles! The back of the door stop is concaved and if this had been left filled in may have increased it's ability to hold heavier doors open.
- Pretty turtle design
- Wonderful colour tone
- Fits in with a mermaid's home and nautical decor
- Can hold light doors open
- Could be used as a book end
- Smaller than the pictures appear
- Not particularly heavy and won't be able to handle some doors
This is a cute little tower of turtles door stop, its sturdy and a decorative sculpture that to be honest works much better on a shelf holding your books than the door and you can see it better there too.
This is a review of the Creative Co-Op Nautical Rope Knot Cotton Door Stop
This door stop shouts the nautical theme especially that of the sailing and boating world. Made of thick durable rope knotted together this is a fun and functional door stop. It is surprisingly heavy at 4.5 pounds and this is because it is weighted inside.
The rope has an off white natural look to it that really blends into decor well. The fact that it has been knotted into a round ball makes this door stop even cuter. It's soft durable nature makes it great for family homes and not hurting yourself or your loved ones when accidently bumping into it, however being soft on the underneath does give it the ability to slide along a smooth hard floor making it more ideal for carpet areas.
The door step comes in the sweet size of 6. 25"L x 6. 25"W x 6. 25"H and in addition to this you also have a choice of two colours.
- Nautical theme
- Cheerful design
- Natural feel to it
- Weighted well
- Easy to fit into decor
- Soft underside means slides on smooth hard floors
This is a sweet yet simply effective addition to your mermaid home decor, a door stop that doesn't traditionally look like a door stop and much prefers a soft carpet or rug to sit on.
This is a review of the GSM Nautical Whale Doorstop
This door stop is quite the centre piece you might find yourself picking it off the floor. Although it will take a little bit of lifting at 5 pounds. This is a sperm whale door stop made from cast iron, it has quite the realistic shape and apperance and measures 12.5 inches long by 6.5 inches high and 4 inches wide.
The whale has a brown / rust look appearance to it which give it quite a bit of character. It is hollowed out which even makes it a neat place to hide something on a treaure hunt.
It has a lovely weight to it that makes it a really great door stop. It's raised tail also gives you another point to pick the whale up from.
- Gorgeous whale design
- Lovely weight to it
- Holds the door well
- Easy to pick up
- Hollow space inside can be used to hide items
- The rust like look, you'll love it or hate it
This is a gorgeous whale door stop, has a lovely weight to it and really looks more of a decorative feature even though it is super practical too.
This is a review of the Pavilion Gift Company The Beach Stopper
This door stop is straight talking, tells you exactly what you want to hear and allows you to tell all your guests when they are in your home too. The door stop is made from polyester, linen and is filled with polyester and sand. It weighs about 2 pounds
This is a door stop that is subtle, gentle and not too in your face yet reminding you of beach times. It measures at 5" tall and it's "Life Is Better At The Beach" text is written in white. You can also get matching floor mats, pillows and draft excluders with the same design. It's soft nature makes it a great door step for a family home so that no trips are had or feet knocked on anything hard when children running around the house.
The rope handle makes for easy moving to a different door or even onto a table top or shelf. It does a fairly good job of holding your door open but I feel like if you pushed the door it would easily move the door stop. Another issues is the fabric to the base of the door stop over time gets dirty, this can be wiped down but again unless you have carpeted floor this could be a problem.
- Pretty design
- Lovely text for a mermaid's home
- Subtle and neutral colour palette
- Has a helpful carry handle
- Can be wiped down
- Suits many homes
- Great around children
- Not heavy enough so will struggle to hold some doors open
- The underneath of the door stop can get dirty and best used on a carpet
This is a sweet beach loving mermaid's door stop, it won't be able to hold all doors and not the best for hard flooring however it is soft nature allows for ease of use and better for use around children.
This is a review of the Sea Island Coastal Sea Turtle Wood Door Stop Wedge
This super cute turtle door stop is made from wood and has been hand carved and hand finished. It really fits in well with a nautical home especially for a lover of mermaids and turtles! The door stop measures 11 x 4 x 4 inches with a good size door stop wedge. The type of wood used also provides an extra nautical vibe which works great in beach home interior.
This cheeky little turtle enjoys nothing more than to hold your door open, it isn't the heaviest of door stops but the solid wedge that goes under the door keeps the door in place. I particularily like the carving to the turtles eyes and the legs as well as the symmetry of the shell.
- Super cute turtle design
- Hand carved and hand finished
- Well made
- Has a good sized door stop wedge
- Easy to clean
- Isn't super heavy so would struggle with heavy doors
This is a cute little hand carved wooden turtle door stop with a good sized wedge to keep your door open.
This is a review of the Stonebriar Beach House White and Gold Cast Iron Seahorse Door Stopper
This decorative door stop is a large sea horse measuring 6.1 x 2.4 x 8.1. To the back of the seahose is the actual door stop it is quite short but the sea horse will snuggly sit up against your door.
Made from cast iron and has been painted with a shabby chic style white with a gold higlight finish. It isn't super large but weighs enough to hold a door open or even be used as a decorative feature on a shelf or paper weight.
This design makes a great gift for a mermaid's home, an ocean lover or big sea horse fan. The gold detailing really emphasises the seahorse shape as well as the sea grass and marine environment around it.
- Cute design
- Seahorse and marine environment
- Shabby chic
- Good weight for door stop
- Would suit multiple homes
- Works also as a paper weight
- The door stop part is quite short
This is a cute sea horse door stop, sturdy, strong and will be able to prop open most doors and sit neatly in line with the door.
