Balancing Frog Table 4.8 5 8 9
Frog Happy I love this little frog...makes a fun little table to hold your drink on the patio. September 16, 2014
First-rate quality This frog table is as well made as it is charming. There's isn't a single burr or sharp edge, which is a nice change from most products I've seen lately. The finish is excellent, and although some comments have noted that it could tip over, you'd really need to unbalance the load on the tray before that would be a problem. The only complaint I have is that the packaging was awful. There were blocks of styrofoam taped to cardboard filler boxes within the outer carton, and the tape had rolled over so that the whole shebang was adhered to the inside of the carton. I opened both ends and still couldn't get the table out without removing fistfuls of sytrofoam. Be sure to open this outdoors! August 13, 2014
The waiter - on balance This example, as with several others in this frog line, is manufactured and finished just fine for garden fun. It is, however, poorly designed for actual use as a table; the table is not balanced over the base. Users will have to be careful to not load the "far" side very much, or it will tip over - probably breaking everything involved. A shame since all that would have been required of the sculptor would have been to shift the base over a few inches. May 20, 2014
one of a kind I like the frog because it's one of those things you can't find elsewhere. September 3, 2014
Balancing frog "unbalanced" Love the quality and look of this little table. However as some others have said it has a "balance" problem if you were to set anything to the side or weight off center it will tip! I still I'm glad I ordered it because it serves as a focal spot by the pool....... "balancing frog" needs more balance!!!! August 23, 2014
frog is adorable I love this little table. I am using it to hold some smaller plants but you could use it as a table too. It really adds a nice touch to my cluster of plants in my patio area. June 5, 2014
Balancing Frog Table It's perfect down by by verdigris bench next to the pool. It makes me smile. Very easy to assemble. April 2, 2014

. . . And how much weight does it take to tip over the 9 pound table?
One person said there was a "balancing problem." Apparently, if a heavy object (large drink) was placed at the far side of the tray it might cause the table to tip over. If the iron weight was bolted to the base maybe it could be replaced with something heavier. My husband loved the table, and he could probably make it more stable if he knew what the bottom of the base looked like.

Answer: 
The Balancing Frog Table does not have an iron weight attached to the base, there is iron incorporated into the base of the table. We have not gotten calls about the table tipping over. You do have 90 days to return any item for any reason for a full refund of the item cost.

Answer: 
The bottom of the base is covered with a thin fabric that's apparently glued on.
I think the balancing question is not really relevant. You'd have to put a pretty substantial load on the very end of the tray to tip the table.
The photo shows a pitcher of iced tea or something on it, but in reality, that would probably be too large an item to be visually appealing.
A coffee cup and a remote control or cell phone is a reasonable load for the table, I think.
