I saw these at Walmart a couple of months ago and decided to pick one up, since they just seemed so nice-looking and unusual. They also come in a white model and two other styles.
This last weekend I got around to opening it and trying it out. Obviously for a foam bladed fan, it isn't a powerhouse, but it's actually pretty decent for a small desk fan. The stand and fan frame are fairly heavy metal. The base circle is plastic. The motor is a 5V DC motor drawing .5 A, powered via either a USB socket or the included wall adapter.
When I went to open the box I noticed on the bottom it is produced by Vornado Air LLC. They seem to have been venturing into foam bladed fans more often lately. If you recall the Hearth and Hand Retro Fan from Target a couple years ago they were foam bladed and metal also, but with an AC motor.
