The lanterns went together really easily. I think it took me longer to snap pictures of them then it did to put them together. They have an artificial candle in the middle that looks like it's glowing when the lantern is on.
We've had even more rain this year and these are doing great. I know it's only been a week or so, but I keep checking them and they don't collect water at all. And they've all lit up every night, so even though it isn't the sunniest backyard, they're still getting enough light during the day to charge.
