Valentine Mailbox Craft Kit
Love, Love, Love!
We loved these little mail boxes. Each box came with so many stickers and decorations that we had enough to share with my other son's class for crafts. They really sent twice what you needed. We had no problem with the stickers sticking to the mailboxes. Some people mentioned that you need a hot glue gun. The only reason you would need that in my opinion is to stick a little wooden handle on the mailbox. We didn't even use the wooden handle, while it was cute and would have added to the overall look, five year olds don't really care about it. I'll order these again (and maybe even right now since they're on sale!) :)

Fun for the kids
For the price of how many you get, it's not bad. The kids had a lot of fun putting them together, and they come with lots to put on. I recommend using the glue dot things, though, because regular glue/glue sticks do not work so well. The quality is not so great in that my son broke the door on his the second day he had it. But overall, for the fun they had putting them together I would still recommend.

Kids are Happy
My kids had a lot of fun making these mailbox's. Some had a little trouble but they all came out very cute and I just love them. I would absolutely do this craft again!

My Class Requested This Again!
My third-fifth grade special day class class loved this project so much that I am getting requests to do the project again this year! In fact, it is like a legend because my incoming third graders have been told about it by their friends and expect it. They can't wait. The best part is... everyone can access this project!

smaller then what I thought they would be
I should have checked the size more closely. They are way too small for the kids to use for collecting valentines. They would work as something to give as a valentine gift though.

Kids LOVED it for 4th Grade Craft
I brought this into my son's 4th grade class as their Valentine's Day craft and the kids Loved it. The mailboxes are sturdy and of good quality and there are lots of jewels and foam hearts for decorating. I loved that the mailboxes were already painted and all decorations were self stick. It was a big hit and I definitely recommend!

Stickers would not stick
The size was ok, I figured for the price they wouldn't be very large. The stickers wouldn't stick at all. The only solution would be to purchase separate Valentine Stickers for this craft so the kids could do it themselves. We ended up using a great deal of glue and it was more work than fun for everyone. I'm usually satisfied with Oriental Trading for kids crafts. This was a disappointment.

Valentine Boxes are a bust
I bought these Valentine boxes for a party for my girls. I just opened them in preparation for the party and decided to decorate one mailbox for the table. The boxes are cheap, but I was totally cool with that as the price was super good, but the stickers don't stick! The puffy plain stickers don't have any stickiness at all to them, so now I have to figure out what I'm going to do with little kids that won't create a mess! Yes, I know how to use glue and all that, but I went with this box because it had stickers and it would be simple for little kids to do without a lot of mess! I'm super frustrated and now I'm scrambling to find "heart" stickers" since it's past Valentine's Day! The party is after Vday due to some kitchen repairs or I could've run out and got some stickers, but now I'm out of luck.

I bought these for a fun craft to do with a bunch of 6 year old girls and they loved making this! The mailboxes are adorable and the only bad thing was some of the pieces needed elmers glue to make the stickers stick. I would totally buy these again!
