Milk Bottle Toss Game
I bought this set and 3 of the individual aluminum milk bottles for a carnival. My thought was that the young kids would use this set and the older would play using the heavier aluminum bottles. It turned out that the wooden ones were just about the same weight so I returned the others and got a second set of these.

Terrible quality, over priced, poorly made, not usable
The "bottles" are not made properly, they can't be stacked which renders them useless as the game they were made for.
They are also very light in weight which would make it difficult to actually use them. I purchased this as a replacement to the milk bottles which were also advertised to use for this game. That product was very poorly advertised to make you think you were purchasing the game when in fact you were only getting one bottle. I have made purchases from Oriental Trading in the past and have been happy with your products but am quite disappointed in these products and Oriental Trading. Doubt I will purchase again from you as I would question that I would be getting what was advertised.

They aren't all the same weight or flat.. so they do not stack. But for the price it really isn't bad. The kids still had fun throwing the ball at them.

Bought two sets for our church block party. Pins are not exactly the same height so you have to play with them to get one to balance on top but once you do, just mark which goes where. Balls seem light but if you give someone a heavier ball, you might as well just hand them the prize.

This carnival game was used for our Children's Ministry Fall Festival. We had about 200 children come in to celebrate Fall through our carnival. This carnival game was of very good quality and a very good investment!
I spent hundreds of dollars on other carnival games but these plastic games ended up breaking by the end of the event. Thank goodness that this game is very reliable and of high quality. I think this was a very wise investment especially because the kids loved this game!

this worked well for our fall festival. We already had a back stop built for a different game to this fit in to replace it easily. The guys liked the challenge but anyone could be successful.

I bought these for a Harvest Party at a Youth Center. The bottles are a bit difficult to set up as they are not very flat on the top nor the exact same heigth. But the kids still enjoyed the challenge and they are sturdy.

Great Carnival Fun
The kids had a great time setting up and knocking down the pins. Even my two year old was able to knock them over with the balls (closer range than the older kids). They were easy to set up and use.
