This item is very cute and practicle. It is a great idea for a school valentine party and can be used for great fun over and over.

I bought these for 1st graders, and found some of the statements on the hearts inappropriate. "text me" and "foxy" should not be on items geared for children.

Piece of junk
Was going to use in my classroom, but with only four cards how much Bingo can you play with this set. I had bought the ones at Chrstmas and there were plenty of cards. They lett this out of my order and I had to call and they sent it right out to me. Waste of money. Wouldn't recommend My fault in not reading the desciption. OH WELL...

Great Quality but didn't like some sayings
I purchased these to use for my scout troops and for my daughter's 1st grade class party. The quality of the cards was very good, the cards are also reversible. However, I'd agree with the reviewer who stated that some of the sayings were inappropriate ("wild thing", "foxy", "text me"). I also thought the cards were a little pricy, as I had to purchase five of them to cover my daughter's class.
I contacted Oriental Trading right away and expressed my concerns and they were great about offering a credit for the product and asked that I donate them to a charity that may be able to use them.

Great Valentine Party Game
This was a terrific activity at my 2nd grader's Valentine's Day party. We had about 5 different game/craft stations set up and this was my daughter's favorite. We used real candy hearts as the game pieces and everyone enjoyed it. I do think it's a bit overpriced for cardboard cards/gamepieces for only 4 players, though, and wish that they had a kit of 8 or 12.

Cute, but I made a few changes...
I purchased this game to use for a Kindergarten classroom Valentine's Day party. (I thought this would be a really cute center activity.) The cards are very colorful, but I didn't like some of the sayings of the candy hearts on the game cards. To give a few examples of some of the candy heart sayings: HOT, FOXY, WILD THING, TEXT ME. In an older classroom this wouldn't be an issue, but for a lower grade like Kinder - I really didn't want to have to explain the meaning of some of these things. :-)
Overall, I still like the game and could see using it in a different classroom in the future.

Rather than using the game pieces provided, use candy hearts (the ones with words on them) or some other valentine-themed candy. I have the Halloween-version of this game, and we used candy corns instead of game pieces. Keeps it fun!

The kids love this game.I actually laminated the cards for future use. (I have two young children) and this will be their class room Valentines bingo game for years to come. I do recomend having a few bingo chips handy. There were not enough paper pieces for all 20 kids to use for the entire game.
