Definitely not what was expected
from Collingwood, ON
I ordered the Illuminart 2 print set and when I got them, I was very disappointed with the Santa Claus picture. For one, the batteries got so hot I burned my fingers as did the battery compartment lid. The other one with the train was fine. Batteries stayed cool and it looked great. However, I had to return both for an exchange. The concept is great, but I honestly expected the pictures to be larger. I am wondering now if they are CSA approved?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just received these today and I like them. We put batteries in them and they work great. I would like to order another set. The price was great and I think my grandson will love them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Winter Fun pictures
from Mt.Pearl ,NL, Canada
Just received the Winter Fun pictures-snowman & lighthouse and I love them.I do agree the battery compartment is in a strange location,Because I read these comments before receiving them I was very carefull not to break the stand which would be very easy to do,although one was easier than the other to remove.They are working fine,not sure abt the timer yet.

Quality Control Not There!
from St. Albert, AB
Thought I had reviewed these but didn't. It's hard to believe that anyone even inspected these before they were put out there for consumers to purchase. The area where you put the batteries in were covered by the picture stand so made it impossible to put batteries in without breaking off the stand. Also the the train scene like another reviewer stated could have had more lights. Purchased three sets so needless to say I'm extremely disappointed in this product! Couldn't return as they were Christmas gifts and being from Mr. Christmas I assumed they were quality so hadn't opened to inspect, bad mistake on my part!!

Very poorly made.
I bought all three sets the end of October when they were first aired. I opened one, and both pictures worked fine. Didn't open the other two until early December, and there was one picture in each that did not work. Since it was after the 30 day return time, I am stuck with them. Extremely poor quality merchandise. Very disappointed with these pictures and with The Shopping Channel for hawking them. However, looking at the other reviews, I guess I am lucky that two-thirds are working. Also, the art work is very nice.

Looked good on TV but...
Nice pictures but poor quality. Switch on one of the two pictures was covered with glue which I have to scrape and peel off in order to switch the unit on. The other picture's timer does not work. The unit never shuts off by itself. I guess I'm stuck with them because they were bought for my grand daughter for Christmas. She loves the pictures of Santa and the Train so I won't be taking then away from her for a refund. Otherwise I most certainly would have. I hoped TSC would monitor the quality of the products they sold more closely.

Has Potential Shame the timer won't work
from Vancouver (BC)
I bought all 6 different paintings as presents for friends and family. The first one I unwrapped was the light-house that I wanted to keep for myself. It looked oddly crooked on the battery compartment. as if it was put on crooked and one corner was jutting out making the back of the painting not flushed when I tried to hang it up on the wall. Upon closer inspection, one screw was missing and the reason why it was crooked was the other screw was screwed on sideways!!!! Where's the quality control on this one????Then I turned it on and expected the timer to turn it off after 5 hours like the spokesperson said it would on TV but it never did. It stayed on for a whole day until I turned it off manually. The timer still hasn't worked even though it's been over a month and I turned it on every now and then to test it.I would buy it if you just wanted a painting and not expect anything else out of it. But if you're attracted to the features they advertised, then save your money as I would not recommend it.
Mr. Christmas Illuminart
By Road Runner
Very poor quality. Battery housings were the cheapest thing I have ever seen. I have bought numerous products from TSC and this by far is the most disappointing one. Could not be bothered to make a trip to the post office to return.
By Jewelry lover
Bought 2 sets and had to send one back as the santa was upside down. The timer on the other set does not switch off. Pictures are nice but needs much more illumination. Six batteries in each one is a bit much.
I have purchased a number of Mr. Christmas items and have always been impressed with the quality but not so much with the illuminart. They are very pretty but made very poorly. The first pair I returned because the canvas was warped, the exchange pair were returned because the tree lights did not work properly and the holder fell off. Very disappointing.
