Fabulous Foam Farm Frames
These frames were great! They did have a strong "rubber" smell to them when they first arrived, but I took them out of the bag and let them air out and they were fine. There were a ton of stickers and letters to make almost anything work and customize each one. I used these for a Barnyard themed 1st birthday and took and printed pictures right at the party.

Cute and easy activity - not the most ideal frame
I agree with the other reviewers who said they have a strong odor, I also let them air out for about a week and the smell has mostly gone away.
I was excited to discover the amount of stickers. The product description isn't specific, so I bought the additional farm stickers (also sold on Oriental Trading) - I think they'll be unneeded though. The frames come with one of every animal for each frame and one of every letter for each frame. We haven't had the party yet, so I don't know if there will be enough letters, but I'm positive there will be enough animals.
The one thing I was disappointed about was these frames are not self-standing. They have to be propped up against something (or I suppose they could be hung up - but have nothing to hang with). One other thing to know is that pictures will have to be cut to fit in the frame. It's not a standard 4 x 6 or even 3 x 5.
I think they will be a fun activity for the kids at this birthday party though.

Great party activity
This was an easy and fun craft for the kids to do at a 1st birthday party. Ages ranged from 1-8 years old. Great little keepsake. I took pics of kids and mailed with thank you, so they could put it in their frame.

Red Barn Frame
You get a lot for your money. The adhesive back is sticky and great. The barns are now less smelly--but definitely air these out for a few days.

I bought these for my 3 years old birthday party. The stickers are fine, but the frames smell bad, have glue stuck all over them, are faded in may spots and have gouges in them. I am very disappointed. I will not be using these and now I will have to spend more money to get new plain frames to put the sticker on.

Cute and fun
I'm going to use these to hang in the hallway with my students' pictures to identify their work. Adult friends and I had a great time working on them together. I'm ordering my second set. My only criticism is that their weren't enough of the letters most needed - way too many e's and o's. I love having a lot of picture stickers left over that my students can use for sticker stories or patterning in centers. These will be great to send home at the end of the school year with their first day of first grade pictures in them.

smells horrible and frame is low quality
The foam smells horrible. I could not even keep in my house and I let them air outbfor weeks and the smell does not go away. The frame hole is too small and the frame is poor quality.
The best part of the package is the foam stickers but they have another item for sale with farmer foam stickers.
I did not use them as intended due to smell and undesirable frame.

Fun & Easy
My guests loved making picture frames. The only downside was the slot for the picture was not 4X6 so the pictures had to be cut. It was difficult to get pictures in. However, there were lots of stickers...more than enough. They turned out very cute.

Good bday party craft
Considering the price & the amount of items you get with the kit I would say its a good buy. The printing was off on a few of the sheets however the kids didn't mind. I would HIGHLY recommend taking the pieces apart prior to letting the kids make the frames. It makes it easier for the kids to pick out what they would like to use on their frame.
