We are using these as part of a pediatric themed party for a medical school graduation. They are going to be used as part of the center pieces.

I needed 2 sets of these pails to do a classroom project. Based on the reviews, I went ahead and bought an extra set because I assumed that some would be broken or unevenly sprayed, etc. I am pleased to say that the extra set was completely unnecessary. I can't find anything wrong with any of the pails. Oriental Trading must have corrected the problem. Great product!

Great little pails
I bought these pails to help me organize kids markers, crayons and other art supplies. A great little pail for organization!

Cute little buckets!
I ordered these to give as teacher gifts. They are smaller than I expected but very cute and could have many uses.

Lousy Paint Job
I bought these buckets because of the size (larger than the galvanized buckets) and because of the fun primary colors. I was disappointed that the paint looked like it was sprayed on the buckets, and it was a bad spray job at that. The color doesn't cover the buckets entirely. Also, many of the buckets (about 1 in 10) were scratched up (probably from the handles. All the buckets come individually wrapped -- probably so they won't scratch more.

these were perfect for small plants for our Mother's Day sale. We can just drop the small flower pot right into the brightly colored pail and add a ribbon and we are Done!

The quality of the tin pail is fair for the price. I can only display one side of the pail due to the fact that they are not evenly spray painted. Parts of the back of the pail are w/out color.

Good for the Price
I really like the colors of the pails, they seem to be in good condition, but the only thing I did notice that wasn't great is that when the pails were sprayed about 4 of mine were not sprayed evenly and there were drip marks running down the sides and some missing spots on the inside. It was only on my green pails. They will work for me but it is something that Oriental Trading should look into since other people have mentioned the same thing on here.

Not worth it
I placed an order for 2 sets of these buckets, but only received one set, but was charged for 2. Then, out of those 12, two were broken in that the metal pieces that are supposed to secure the handles to the buckets were not attached (they had come loose or were never glued/melted) to the bucket. Then a third bucket was missing some paint inside, a fourth had way too much paint pooled inside on the bottome. A fifth had paint that looked drippy on the outside. Also, I thought I was ordering the 4" buckets (from the sale items), but they were the smaller (mini) ones, and that was not listed in the name of the product. Ultimately, a big loss for me and my planned project with my students

I ordered these to use them in making centerpieces for my son's birthday party however, they were alot smaller than I expected. The colors are great and perfect for the theme but besides being small, the little pails were a little dented and the handle is a bit fragile. I ended up using them to place peanuts in them and put them on the tables.
