Rated 3.0 out of 5.0
by MarleneSM Not what I expected
These were not what I expected. I blame myself for not reading the dimensions. These are TINY! I knew there was a problem when I picked up the box of 4 dozen and it weighed a couple of ounces.
We used these in a children's Christmas performance while they sang Feliz Navidad. I had a lot of people tell me how funny they were since they were so small.
My oversight aside, these rattles (not fit to be called maracas) were poorly made. Many fell apart and the tiny bead would roll off. We had to glue a few shut and added beans (which actually helped them make an audible noise).
I'm not sure when these tiny rattles would be useful, but at least we all had a laugh.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MWilson85 TERRIBLE PRODUCT
I bought these for a classroom song activity and was SO disappointed. Upon opening the box several of them were already broken and unable to be used. Upon use of the rest, by the time we'd used them twice many had broken or the little ball inside had fallen out making them unusable. There were also 2 in the package that were completely missing the sound-making ball when I received them. Would NOT purchase them again.

I thought they were too small, but my daughter said, "NO, they are the perfect size for her kids, so I let it go and they loved the purchase

this product was horrible, not worth the postage to return, they are so small, I have no idea what they can be used for, I have seen toothpicks larger than this... not what i have been given to expect from the vendor..save your money

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Susie80 Very deceiving
I got these as stocking stuffers thinking they would be good for the children to have instruments and I am embarrassed to even use them.
