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!

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.

Just as they appear
We used these as part of an interactive center table piece. If it is important to you that they snap or stay shut then order a few more than you'll need as a few arrive damaged (snap broke off and won't stay shut).

Beware of broken chests
Purchased for son's pirate party. I bought 24 and 5 were cracked with shards of plastic.

Great for a pirate party
These were bigger than I expected and look perfect for holding candy or small goody items for a pirate party.They are 5 in. long, 3 1/4 in wide and about 2 1/2 in. deep (with the lid open). The lid is rounded so you can probably fit a little more in. The plastic is a little thin and one came cracked. They close well and don't open easily - good so contents to fall out - but the downside to that is if a kid tries to force it open roughly they'll likely break it.
Haven't used them yet so we'll see how they hold up yet for a party.

Great for theme
These turned out to be bigger than I was expecting. I think we will use them for the loot that falls from the pinata and they can fill their own treasure box. We did ad a bit of color with a silver sharpie on the rivets after reading that tip from another consumer. Can't wait until the party! Thanks AGAIN OT.

Difficult to open
The chest is a nice size, but it is a bit difficult to open. The first time I tried to open one the corner snapped off. I would, however, recommend to a friend because they is very cute, my grandchildren love them, and they hold a very generous amount of 'treasure'.

These were the best part of my daughter's Pirate Party favors. They're really great quality and hold just enough to be neat. I took the advice of other reviewers and picked up a couple gold paint pens to color the accents (and also write the kids' names on them). They turned out GREAT!
