Halloween Character Craft Bags
I figured the price was right, so I'd try them, but aside from most bags coming apart at the seams (which I was ready for) the stickers were really terrible. They didn't come off the backing nicely at all, so I needed all my counselors running around to all the kids with glue to peel them and stick them where the kids wanted them. Of course the finished products looked adorable, but the quality and construction were pretty lousy and it ended up being more work than I bargained for. I had hoped the kids would be able to do most of it on their own. I would have expected more from Oriental trading...

I bought this product knowing they where less than perfect, due to coming apart at the seam of the bag. It look me a few minutes but I pulled them apart and glued them better. For the price it was very worth the effort. My daughters kindergarten class had a lot of fun making them . My only complaint would be, the stickers where kind of difficult to pull off. The teacher and I had to help them, which took a lot of time out off her party.

usable after a quick fix
i got this knowing it was defective and to save money on baggies that usually gets thrown away anyway. All it needs is a quick fix using tape or glue to the bottom or sides of the bag. The stickers to make faces on the bag is a good idea and a freebie, despite the quality of the bag.

Bad quality makes them useless
You can't even call them bags. The glue that is supposed to hold them together is of such low quality that the bags just fall apart.

Not what I expected
I got these for my daughter's first grade class for use during their Halloween party. Many of the bags literally fell apart when I tried to open them, and the ones that didn't, were very flimsy, and many of the handles became detached. The stickers were really cute, but VERY hard to peel off, and many of them had to be discarded as well. All in all, a great price but a HUGE disappointment!!

Not for the Preschooler
We did not experience the bag issue that some of the other reviewers did, actually my 3 year old is still carrying his bag around with him a week later. However, those adorable stickers were just too difficult for the preschoolers to peel off and it made for an extremely frustrating craft project for a class of 18 3-year olds. Most of the children just gave up after just a few stickers wasting the rest of them. Also, would have like to have a sheet of stickers per bag... asking preschoolers to pick and choose is not always as easy as you might think. We had to cut the sheets around the stickers in order for each child to have their own sheet.

Sorry to say that that the reviews are correct. Of the 24 bags, 20 came unglued and sides had to be taped up using packaging tape!

Poor Quality Bags
I ordered these for treat bags for a children's Halloween party. Almost all of them came unglued at the seams either when you tried to open them, or when you put 1 or 2 pieces of candy/prizes in them. The stickers were super cute and we will use the leftovers again next year. The bags however, were not worth the time or the money.

Not worth any amount of $$
I bought these for a large group of kids to use as goody bags. What a hassle! Every bag came unglued before the kids could put the first thing in them. I would have paid more for a bag that actually worked.

Not the best quality
I love the stickers and character faces, but the bags where of poor quality. The bags came apart at the seams as soon as we opened them. So I think the glue job wasn't strong enough. Beware of the bags!
