Colorful Beach Play Sets
cutest thing ever!!
I ordered these to make candy favor buckets for the kids at my wedding, and they are better than expected! I was expecting them to be smaller, but they far exceeded my expectations! There is a small playground with some sand attached to my reception venue, and if the kids get bored they can actually take these out and play in the sand if they wish. Love it!!!

Awesome Table Centerpiece
I was pleasantly surprised. I expected small, but they are the perfect size for my son's beach birthday party. Great variety of colors. I'm using the beach play sets as centerpeices to display photos of his first year of life.

We used them to make individual "sand cakes" for my daughters second birthday party. They were the perfect size. The kids used the shovel as a spoon, it was a HUGE hit!!!

The buckets were much smaller than I anticipated, I should have paid more attention to the size listed. The shovels and rakes fall apart very easily.

Bright & Colorful Decorations
Always read the reviews. I did and got exactly what I expected. We used these as table decorations. DO NOT purchase this IF you want it to be a play item (1) too small, and (2) too fragile. However, this is perfect for decoarting a beach or tropical theme party.

Smaller than anticipated
I purchased these for the kids to scoop goldfish out of a pool and put in the bucket. The bucket ended up being too small.

Cute, if you're only using them for decoration.
These little sets LOOK cute. If you're only using them for decoration, then they're great. However, if you actually want your kids to be able to play with them, don't waste your money. The shovel and rake are in two pieces, and they don't stay together if you actually try to use them. The pieces only slide into each other, but there's nothing to be able to lock them in. I had to spend more time trying to glue them together so my son and his friends would actually be able to play with them.

These were very small; however, that was expected. I purchased this set as favors to use at a third birthday party at the creek. I made the mistake of leaving the sets in the individual bags they came in, to hand out the day of the party. When people took the sets out of the bag, the handles came off almost immediately because they are not permanently attached. While playing with the sets in the creek, the shovels and rakes came apart because they also were not permanently attached. Had I known this was the case, I might have super glued the pieces together beforehand.
The kids pretty much ended up playing with the bucket (without the handle), so it somewhat served its purpose; however, this was not the quality I expected. When the party was over, most people left their buckets behind.
One pro - the bright colors! This made it easy to spot the pieces in the creek so that I could pick them up, rather than litter the park.

Perfect for Party Goody Bag
Used these as the Goody bags for 5 year old's b-day. They were cute and the kids loved them. I was able to fit a deflated mini beach ball and a mini rubber ducky perched on top into the pail. Make note of the size because they are small - but that's what I was looking for.
