Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gladys6879 Exceeded Expectations!
Wanted something nice to put up for Chinese New Year. The picture looked cool, but I didn't expect much because it was so cheap. Boy was I surprised by how much was in here! Took me almost an hour to punch out the pieces (and thats just the ones that I will use. some of it was too high level for my kids, but I plan to give those to another teacher). Put it up in my room and it looks fantastic. I love teaching from bulletine boards and definitely plan to do lots of lessons this week with this

I ordered this for my classroom and was EXTREMELY pleased with the value of the kit. The product description wasn't very detailed, so here is what comes in the kit:
-alphabet (4 of each) and numbers (2 of each)
-banners ("Happy Chinese New Year" "Year of the" and 1 blank)
-gold coin border
-cartoon image of each zodiac animal (approx. 16" tall)
-zodiac chart (approx 25" diameter)
-red lanterns (6" tall)
-fortune cookies with blank fortune paper (2" tall)
-boxes with name of zodiac animal in english and mandarin character (2" tall)
- boxes with characteristic description of zodiac animal and the birth years *NOTE- the year of the snake is incorrect!
- 2 firecracker wall hangings
- pagoda roof (comes in 4 pieces, but when assembled is VERY big)
My only complaint is that the punch outs are fairly flimsy. I ended up laminating most of the items so that I can use them from year to year.

I used this in the kids area of our Chinese New Year Party, and then gave it to a teacher afterwards. We both loved it, especially for the price. It came with tons of stuff!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer My favorite bulletin board set!
I am a full-time Mandarin teacher and Chinese-related classroom items are few and far between in the teacher shopping world. This bulletin board set is a Godsend! There are SO many pieces, so you have a wide range of options for bulletin board ideas. I actually used the roof pieces to decorate my classroom door year-round. One thing that was really disappointing: there are pieces that tell what years go with what animals and one of them is incorrect :\ So if I couldn't use one of them, I didn't want to use any of them. If I remember correctly it was this year, too! The year of the snake. Anyway, still worth it overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gayleforce910 Great set!
I really like this bulletin board set. It is bright and colorful. My children ran to look at it as soon as they came in this morning. It has lots of pieces which I love. I wish it was made of sturdier card stock, but otherwise perfect :) It is also very informative.
