Cowboy Boot Sand Art Bottle Necklaces
Another winner. The boys love sand art, and these cowboy boot necklaces just thrilled them to bits. I honestly don't know what I would do without Oriental trading, they seem to come up trumps every time.with activities like this fantastic one.

We had the children use funnels to layer sand into the boots. They had a great time picking colors. Adult leaders did add hot glue to the top of the sand before capping the boot. Did find the plastic boots were easily broken if dropped or bumped. Overall, still a great craft for all ages.

Good quality and quick shipping
Ordered 62 and only 1 had a defect... I think that is great! Would definitely order again!

Junk! Break, crack, leak
You get a dozen boots and one small funnel. You buy the sand separatly. It takes about an hour for everyone to fill their boot with the one tiny funnel. More importantly, once that is done, they break. The plastic is so brittle that it just cracks. Everyone either had a hole in it or a crack in it. Very fragile, but cute.

Poor manufacturing quality
About 1/3 of the boots had holes in them and were unusable when they came out of the package. The plastic was also so poorly manufactured that when a child accidentally dropped theirs they completely shattered all over the floor - not just a crack, but shattered into many pieces. What a disappointment to have to purchase items by the dozen and receive so many broken items or children's items so poorly made they can't hold up to to children's usage. You can do better, Oriental Trading!

Almost every one of the boots had a hole in them. I didn't look closely at them, so at the party we were trying to fill them and they all had holes in them. It was a disaster. They are really, cute and big and a good price, but they were made poorly. Really disappointed.

The children at VBS were so excited to see a sand craft. BUT when the filled the boots 18 out of 36 had cracks in bottom. Since I never imagined this happening I did not have enough spares to go around. I had to use tape to cover holes. The children and I were very disappointed.

The boot quickly became a favorite at our craft shows. They are a little larger then expected which is nice. Great price. Thanks for another great product.

Great idea, poor quality
I ordered these for a birthday party and was surprised when I noticed the plastic was cracked along the bottom edge on one. Then I checked them all- every single one was cracked.
OT was great about shipping me out another set in time for the party but sadly the second set arrived with 6 cracked, again all in the same area. Its just a flaw in the molding, the plastic is too thin along the edges. A shame because these would be cute, but I dont have enough for every kid now so we wont be using them. I wouldnt order them again.

These boots are bigger than I expected which is great. I just may need to order more sand for VBS. Good quality. The lids fit nicely. I'm going to have the kids put a dab of glue inside the lid before they close them up so the lids don't pop off either accidentally or on purpose.
