Bright Colorful Bucket Assortment
I bought these for my four youngest for their Easter Baskets. They were great in size, color, everything. The best part is after Easter, they can have a future use - unlike the traditional Easter Baskets which just take up room.

The orange, green and blue were perfect for my sons birthday party! They were exactly what I was looking for! Now we can use them to organize toys or play with at the beach... Love them!

Big Bucket. Bright 'n Bold.
Purchased these as this year's Easter baskets for the kids. Mainly made the purchase because I could also re-use them for toy storage. They weren't that great of an Easter basket-a little too big and cumbersome for my toddler and preschool aged kids. I used decorative ribbon to create handles and it stayed in place pretty well. Prior to creating the "handle" I twined the bucket handles separately with the ribbon, so the grip was decent and it added a little bit of fun/color. Anyway, I don't think I'll use them as Easter baskets again unless I fail to plan ahead of time and need a last minute basket. The price is a little high for an item that is likely going to end up adding to the clutter instead of really maintaining it. Still, when the children are older, I can see these making fun waste baskets or if they're really organized themselves, a good place to separate desk items or whatever nick-naks they collect. I like the size and I like the versatile options of use. I can see them making great outdoor or beach toys-even something that stays outside holding all of the outside smaller toys or being a permanent sand bucket. Seem pretty durable to me!

My students made the suggested Owl Buckets using the free template. They LOVED them. They were so excited to share them with their parents! I let them do their own thing as far as colors or how to use the templates and they really had a great time. It does take some time if you have them cut the pieces out of the foam like I did but it was perfect for the last week of school.

Good Product! Too High Priced...
I bought these for my art classroom and they are great. They came packaged correctly, they are a good flexible (but durable) plastic, and are great for storing rulers, scissors, paint supplies, etc.
Everything about them is great, except they are a little over priced for only 4 buckets. I would buy a couple more sets, if the price went down ;)

Cute, but not very sturdy
I bought these buckets to sort and store my 2 1/2 yr old son's toys. They didn't last a week. The first broke while taking it out of the bag.The second one broke when he dropped a matchbox car into it. The third one when he pushed a tiny bit too hard getting it onto the shelf. The final one when he turned it upside down and tried to stand on it.
They are adorable, and a great size, but be sure you plan to use them for a single event, and in a no impact situation.
