See-Through Bug Boxes
These are good quality jars. They have holes in the top so thye're good for live bugs. Used this for entering first graders. They decorated it with permanent markers and stick on foam bugs. The end result was very cute and the kids loved them.

These were a hit at my child's ladybug picnic party. We decorated Chinese takeout boxes with bug stickers, added Easter grass, then went on a toy bug hunt of bugs we hid in a butterfly garden at the park. The kids had a blast collecting bugs. Along with their goodie bags they received a see through bug box to use when the go on a real bug hunt. They were a hit with both the parents and kiddos. I was very impressed with the quality and price.

Excellent for live bugs
These are wonderful, sturdy little containers that will allow viewing of a live insect or other small invertebrate. They can be passed around to a class, and they travel pretty well. I secure the top with a bit of tape just to keep my bugs from getting accidentally released. They wash up nicely and are endlessly reusable.

These are great! I'm throwing a bug themed party for my 4 year old and I bought bug stickers to decorate the outside of these as well as shredded green paper that looks like grass on the inside. I will have the kids engage in a bug hunt with these and the plastic bugs (also through OTC).

Waste of money
I bought these for summer camping, out of the entire box, only 3 jars were good. The others were smashed or cracked.

Fantastic product, Oriental Trader did right by me
Ordered 3 cases and two or three of the individual jars arrived cracked. I took pictures of the broken ones, emailed it to Oriental trader and customer service offered me a choice of refund of credit for future order. Very pleased with both the bug jars and how Oriental trader quickly handled the broken ones. ThanksS!!

Works, slightly fragile
These are fantastic if you don't expect them to last beyond one or two capture/observe sessions. The lids can be challenging to open for smaller hands; which may or may not be a good thing.

These were very clear and nice upon arrival. They do scratch easily.

Bigger than I expected
Magnifier wasn't great quality, but was adequate and the box was bigger than I was expecting and the kids loved them.
