Tricky "Mixed Nuts" Cans
The kids LOVED them. They held up very well. We bought 4 dozen and only a handful lost their noise makers, which we easily snapped back on. Quality was great. Wish we had ordered more. Overall, we thought these were great. The kids had a great time with them, though we were a bit tired of pretending to be tricked after a while.

My daughter loved them
I read in some of the other reviews that the lid does not even stay on the can. I don't know if O.T. fixed that problem or what but we did not have that problem at all. All the kids loved them especially my daughter who "tricked" me with them for about an hour straight and just loved it. It is true they are smaller and not a tin can, but i thought they were very worth it for the money. It is my daughters favorite thing we put in her party favor bags.

Kids never seem to tire of this trick can! Have bought them for the last two years as game prizes at our annual Halloween party and they remain a favorite. Some cans came damaged, didn't close but most were okay.

I have 3 boys. nuff said?
They work well, and the squeak surprised me. If you hold the can and use your thumb tips to push open one side, the spring will fly out of the can. That was a big surprise. They are going in the stockings this year!

These surprise peanuts are so fun for kids of all ages. I bought some several years ago and it was time for more. They are still fun. However, I did notice that the snake is barely 10" in length. Because of this, the snake pops out of the can but does not zoom out the way my older ones that measure 14" do. I guess making them shorter saves the manufacturer $. On the up side, the lids are easy for the kids to work.

This was all the guests needed in a goody bag!
3 weeks later and the kids are still enjoying these. Ours have been popped, popped and popped and they are still going strong. They were the hit of the party. The kids were 9 & 10 year olds, & my younger and older children have had fun with them too. They come pre-assembled and individually bagged.

Can't wait for my students to get these. And it doesn't hurt that I still have fond memories of my own similar gag gift from when I was a tyke myself. These are great.

I LOVE these things!
These are the best things ever. I remember playing with these trick cans when I was a kid. The funny thing is, they still work. My kids even opened a can and got scared when the spring popped out. These are great for treasure box items at school too. I keep a couple for unsuspecting people! :)

kids loved them
These were fun for the kids, but alas some broke on the first try and had to be replaced. So buy extra to allow for broken ones. We had about 2 out of 12 break, and I bought 36.

Lids won't stay on, snakes fall apart quickly
Trick worked great once I taped all the lids on. Kids were so disappointed that all they got for a treat were some "lousy nuts," and then were delighted when the snakes popped out. Unfortunately, the plastic snakes all fell apart within an hour resulting in plastic "cans" filled with exposed metal springs.
