Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peppermitten HUGE SUCCESS
I purchased only one pack for a group of 4th graders to make. They used a hot glue gun, as normal glue would not hold up. The tooth pick was difficult to insert, so we left it out and glued the head directly onto the body. They looked even cutier this way. They got creative and glued legs on in a sitting position and glued the head on as if the reinder was looking over its shoulder. They alterned the atlers to make a baby reindeer or ommitted it for a female deer. We sold them to help raise money for a project we are doing. They were a huge success! I only wish I would have purchased 3-4 kits, as they sold out quickly and were very popular amoung both kids and adults!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by aman1978 not child friendly
This craft is super cute, but very hard for children to put together. Adults had to insert the sticks and regular Elmer's glue did not work. I wish there was an easier way for children to assemble this themselves. Most of our children had to take theirs home in pieces.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zizimfb Very fun!
We have a big family get together on Christmas Eve. This year I wanted to do something different to add to the entertainment. I set up a craft table with these Reindeer Ornament Kits and glue guns (they worked best)
These were a hit! They were perfect for the kids (with supervision of course) and the adults. Plus, at the end of the night everyone went home with a new ornament for their tree.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TeacheryMama Cute, but difficult assembly
These reindeer ornaments turned out adorable, but the neck was extremely difficult to push in to the cork head and body. Perhaps if the ends were pointy instead of blunt. Almost wished I had a drill with a small bit! Then gluing them in would have been easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sooks Fun project with more possibilities
I bought this for a friend who does not like to order on the internet. She made wonderful ornaments from the kit and added clever embellishments.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beeincreative I made these for a craft fair sale, and they sold out within 2 hours!
These are quick and easy to make, however, I had trouble with their necks! I tried gluing them, but they still came off, so I took them off! I put bows on there instead, and they went like hotcakes! These are a great item for a Christmas Bazaar or Holiday Craft Fair - everyone loved them!
I ordered two dozen this time!

by LisaBfromLongIsland Great Christmas craft!
I bought these for my 7 year old son to make for Christmas presents and they were great! He enjoyed putting them together and needed little help from my husband and I. He only needed help with knotting the ribbon and inserting the toothpick head holder (we used a small screwdriver to make the hole so that it wouldn't break the cork). The glue dots that the product description recommended were perfect to use and easy for my son to use. They were adorable and my son had fun making them!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lafarlin Cute and worth the money
Very cute and easy to make. Did use the suggestions of other reviewers about using a glue gun and pre-made the hole for the toothpick.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pikake12 Too Hard for 3rd graders to assemble
These are an adorable oranament but white glue does not work as recommended. I had to hot glue 26 x 4 legs to every students reindeer.
Then there are no pre-made holes in the head and bottom for the little wooden dowl to fit in so I had to use a tiny Phillips screw driver and put holes in both the head and body.
Overall at the end they turned out cute but I did almost all of the work.
DON"T USE WHITE GLUE
Maybe for gifts that an adult wants to give to children might be a better way to use this product.
