Festive Neon Maracas
I had been looking for reasonably priced maracas to use with programs I do with seniors in assisted living facilities and convalescent homes. I found these on OT's web site and ordered them. They work! They are colorful, they make enough noise (although I would like them to have had a few more beans inside and be a little noisier as my audience often have hearing impairments) and the price was reasonable.

Great price, but not sturdy
These looked great for my fiesta musical at school, but I ended up gluing about 15 of the 3 dozen I bought because they opened or the handles came off. Great price, just needed extra work.

These are very poorly made. They broke within minutes of use in my preschool class. They were splitting apart at the seams. Invest in a more sturdier set made of heavier plastic.

My three year old is not destructive or hard on his toys and he broke 3 of these in 5 minutes. They are very cheaply made. If you want something that lasts, purchase something else!

I accidentally leaned on one with my leg and it broke. I will be calling customer service tomorrow regarding the poor quality of these shakers. Handles are easily breakable on them and I'm afraid of my daughter getting her hands pinched in between the two parts.

Fun for Children
I have purchased these in the past to use with large groups of children. For the price and quantity, they are fine.

Kind of disappointing
These are okay - about the size they tell you but, don't sound very good. They will do but, I was hoping for something a little nicer...

I was extremely disappointed with the neon maracca's - i bought them assuming they were a decent size considering they also sell "miniature" maracca's. However; when I received them; they were in fact only about 2 inches big and would not work for what we needed at all. I have had it happen often that the picture is deceiving. VERY DISAPPOINTING!

Colorful but disappointing
Though these maracas are cute & colorful, they are definitely a toy NOT an instrument. I bought them for a music class and am considering returning them. Their sound quality is very poor. I am very disappointed in this product.

these were a hit at our party, especially with the kids.
