Black Pirate Chests
These were bigger than I expected. I'm using them for a pirate themed piano incentive this year. Students decorated their treasure chests with metallic markers and the self adhesive jewels. They turned out great!

Great Center pieces!
I purchased these as centerpieces for my kid's bday party.
They are a great size, they were shipped quick and receive them in perfect condition. Because they are fairly deep I had to stuff the bottom. I put colorful jelly bean and gold coins and it make the perfect centerpiece for our half Pirate half Little Mermaid party! Also, my husband lined the chest with a gold metallic pen and that added so much more character to the chest.

I was very happy with this purchase. We followed the suggestion of another person and used gold paint to touch up some areas. Very good quality!

Great Idea, some breakage... packing issue?
This is a fantastic idea for a box. They double as a party favor container, and a cool favor themselves. I got 2 dozen. One dozen came rather well intact, except for the "innermost" one (they come stacked tightly together with tissue paper separating them.) That one was cracked in both a corner and along the whole hinge. The second dozen had 3 broken boxes, the "innermost" box was again cracked in much the same way, corner was cracked and the outer lip too. Two others near the innermost had their plastic "pin" broken off. That damage was disappointing, but without the pin, they still snap closed. So, all in all I have 2 boxes that I'd say are not presentable (by kid standards.)
Given the pattern of damage, I think it could be avoided by packing stacks of 6 inside each other instead of all 12, and maybe some additional bubble wrap. Still a great idea.... But I strongly recommend making sure you have ordered a few more than you need .

some boxes broke when the kids tried to open/close them. Few boxes came broken on arrival.

They were smaller that I expected. The product itself was good just really small. I wish that I had realized how small they were.

Hold quite a bit of "Treasure"
These were really nice & actually held quite a bit. I was able to add a lot of "treasure" and still didn't fill them. Unfortunately at least 2 in each set I got had cracked or chipped edges on the lids, a few were still usable, but several weren't. So just make sure you give yourself a little buffer on how many you need. But otherwise I was really impressed with these.

I bought 2 dozen of these for a birthday party. Luckily I ordered them early because when I got them half of them were cracked and broken. Many had the lids cracking to the point they couldn't be used at all. Many of the bottoms has chunks busted off. Then a few even had the latches broken off.
Only about one or two of the entire order actually latches well. The other 10 non-broken ones would shut and stay shut but the little latches actually didn't hook. I didn't mind as much about that as long as they can stay shut.
I was VERY happy with the customer service! I contacted them right away when I saw how many were broken and they were very happy to send me another dozen to replace the broken ones. I really appreciate the service and I love the items I just was unhappy that so many showed up broken.

Excellent for our small business. Would recommend to friends!
We purchase lots of these Pirates Chests for our small business and the kids just love them!
Our only issue was there is always a few in the box that are cracked.

I bought these treasure chests for my daughters Pirates and Princesses birthday party. They were the perfect size for her scavenger hunt. I put the gold coins from here in them, along with other assorted items, and they were a great item to hunt for! They were surprisingly larger than i though, definately enough to hold the coins, and even candy from the pinata later. I did get a gold paint pen and color the bands on the top and sides of these to make it look more authentic. It definately was the perfect final touch.
