Teapot Treat Holder Craft Kit
These beautiful teapots will serve as the goodie bags and craft activity at my daughter's 6th bday tea party. I love the three varieties.

Great for party favors
Used these for my 4 year old's tea party and they worked perfectly for what I needed them for. The kids would not have been able to put them together themselves, so I did it ahead of time and filled them with beads and string to make bracelets. I thought I might be able to use them to put candy from the pi¿¿ata in, but they were too small for that purpose so I used them as favors instead.

so many missing parts
The children could not do these for a special Mother's Day event. The handles and spout have to be matched and stuck together in the middle but not the ends or the piece is ruined. I ordered 4 sets and at least one teapot in each set had mismatched pieces, 3 spouts and 1 handle piece, the adhesive was on the wrong side or
the colors didn't match up with the decorative pieces. I have completed 2 sets and already have 4 unusable containers.
The idea is cute but not for kids and you better order extra sets the way they are packaged!

I ordered these teapots for a She and Me event at work, and would recommend them. As some other reviews stated, some of the handle pieces did not align correctly, so we had to open a couple of extra packets to get replacement pieces. When I plan events, I always order a couple extra, just in case, so this was not a big deal. Overall, they were very cute, and I was satisfied for the price. Girls ages 3-8 assembled them with a minimum of adult help.

Pleasantly surprised ~ sturdy & cute
I bought these as a craft project for a mother-daughter day event, & was very pleasantly surprised! The description does not tell you that the actual ~body~ of the teapot is a sturdy paper mache box, with a lid! I thought the whole thing was going to be made out of foam, but these are much better than that. The kits that I inspected seemed to have all of their parts & all facing the right way, I have yet to go through the entire lot. I put together a pot for a ~dry run~ & It looks like the bead that goes on the top does need glued on ( I reccomend Aileene's craft glue in the big brown bottle, plus about 1/2 hour dry time planned into your event), but there is a flat spot on the bead, so it's easy to glue down & once on, seems to stay put pretty good.) These are a small, sturdy & adorable little party favor / craft. I think they will be a big hit!

very good but not perfect
I made 56 of these for favors at a church dinner. They were quite well liked. At first I made a dozen of them and was so excited that they were so easy because of being self-adhesive. Then the next day I found that they weren't staying "stuck" so I had to add glue. A few of the packs were missing parts, and the extra pieces were not the pieces that I needed. Overall, they made an adorable favor, and a nice amount of wrapped candy fit inside them.

Fun but not fancy
We held a She and Me event for our Girl Scout service unit. These were the giveaways to the scouts -they were affordable and an "easy do" for all age ranges. I was disappointed that a few of them had "backwards" handles (like other reviews said) - we just provided one of the other packets so we had waste. Also, there was no way to affix the top bead for the lid.... The girls really loved it though.

All of the handles on the teapots were unusable. They were all one way for both, instead of opposites, in order to be pressed together to make a handle. What good is a tea pot without a handle? So I had to create my own handles ahead of time in order to salvage the craft. The spouts were correctly done, though. This was more work than I wanted to do. I was hoping it could all be done by the kids themselves as this was suppose to be a handmade gift by them to their own mothers for Mother's Day. Sorry to say, I will not recommend this particular craft to others.

My 3yo needed quite a bit of help, but she loved that she could put things in the box when she was finished, and she found out the hard way it won't hold liquid :) The lid on the top is the only thing that is not self-adhesive, and needed to be glued, then fell off several times, but she played with it a lot. If you are just using them for favors or decorations, it would be fine.
