Cute, Little buckets
These were smaller than I thought, but I guess that's my fault for not getting out a ruler and seeing what 3" looks like. Overall, the buckets are nice and brightly colored...very cute.

I used these for a bulletin board in my classroom "Have you filled a bucket today?" They are very cute and well painted. Maybe they improved after the last poor reviews. I didn't have an issue with them when it came to the paint. The only thing I didn't like, is that I got way more green buckets than the other colors. I would suggest that since it's a dozen buckets in four different colors, that there should be three of each. Since it's not stated in the description, I assumed that's how it would be. Otherwise, it should mention it. Overall, I like the buckets and since my class will be larger this coming school year, I will be ordering an extra set.

I was very disappointed in how poorly the pails were painted. The paint job was uneven. You could see the silver they had once been in spots. It was definitely not worth the money I paid.

I was planning to use these for part of the centerpieces for 8th grade graduation. i was happy with everything except these pails. However, it is too late to return them. They are dented and not the way I thought they would look. I will just have to make the best of it.

D Minus Quality
I put vinyl lettering on mini buckets to make thank you gifts year round so I go through a ton of them and I need a reliable supplier. I was excited when I first ordered these but heartbroken when they arrived. Every single bucket is flawed and unsuitable for giving. The neon paint has been sprayed on messily, with areas of thin coverage bordered by areas that are over-sprayed, resulting in a slightly splotchy appearance. The paint chips off the un-primed metal with the slightest touch and every single bucket is bent, dented and damaged. EVERY SINGLE ONE! In fact, the yellow bucket in the example image shows how the handles are slightly bent and warped out of shape. The colors are misleading as well. The yellow is actually a light lime green - it's not the vibrant sunflower yellow shown - and in person they're all much more dull in color. But it doesn't matter! They are so poorly painted and banged up it would be rude to give them as gifts in that condition. I won't be ordering these again.
