One-Pound Milk Bottle
Just like the Real Carnival
I bought three of these (remember, the price is per ONE) I stacked one on top of two and made a game board to play them with. They worked fine and sounded like real glass bottles when they clinked together. Only thing keeping me from the 5th star is they are not perfectly flat on the bottoms. They stand up just fine but to me are a little too easy to knock over because of the seam that holds them together, it was not perfectly done. I even took an electric sander to them and tried to flatten out the bottoms some more. This game would have been better had they been perfectly level and also if they had some for sale a little heavier to put on the base. Just keep in mind the weight of these adds to the shipping cost if you are not getting free shipping, so it's more than 14 each you are really spending. Good product for my carnival and the kids loved them! I painted the back of my game to say "Don't spill the Milk!" after this picture was taken. It came out so cute!

I purchased 3 of these milk jugs, used them at our school carnival, stacked one on top of two and gave the children a baseball - they were knocked continuousely for 4 hours. Very durable and the kids had a blast!

Dont buy until they make them right
Bought 6 of these and returned them. The bottom and top of these are NOT even. It takes time just to get them to stack and not fall over on their own. For the price I thought I would be getting something close to real carnival bottles that can be a challenge to knock over and thought these would be too. The texture of the bottles feels like sandpaper.
NOTE: $14.00 EACH - not for a set
I Still like and recommend Oriental Trading.

kind of expensive
the bottles are of good quality however I "misread" that the price was PER bottle. Pricey for what I'm using them for. thought i was getting a set of 3, disappointed when only one came. Now I have to either not use that one and waste the $ or buy more to actually play the game with

Good product - sturdy and right size for a baseball toss game
I bought the bottles for an old fashioned baseball toss game at our church Fall Festival. Some of our youth will be running this booth, and the bottles are sturdy and pretty easy to stack. Thought they were a little pricy, they should last for years to come and be a fun part of our event.

Cool idea, poor construction
I decided to splurge on this game for my wedding carnival reception, i thought it would be a fun game for the adults. I got three to stack but the bottles are made in two half's and then welded together unevenly so the bottom is not flat, it knocks over to easily and the surface is not smooth and shiny. I am going to ask my dad to try and grind down the sharp seam along the sides, seems like a lot of money for what you actually get.
