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!

After reading the book "The God Box." I bought these little mailboxes & painted them gold and made mini God Boxes.
They turned out amazing. I can think of lots of creative uses for these boxes besides just Valentines Day. I will be purchasing them again.
I loved that they were already put together and I loved that the flag was secured in a way that it would hold up.

Please with the improvements!!
I had bought the cardboard mailboxes before and had to do a little repair work before letting the children use them, but this time I was pleasantly surprised by their sturdiness! Not a bad one in the bunch and they look like they will last through a lot of use, as well. The additional decorations are an added bonus for me, a great selection of varied hearts and a generous amount of them, too. I will probably cover the pink part to allow them to be used throughout the year. I certainly don't mind doing that to a quality product.

I see that people "love" these, but I would NOT recommend these at all. First off, 1/3 of the quantity were defective. Luckily for me - and thank God because it was the only craft I ordered for the Valentine party - I ordered extra. Because 1/3 of the lids were ripped or the mailbox 'handles' - broken from the hole. Secondly, these are so teeny-tiny. I thought the kids could put their Valentine cards in them but clearly, that's not the case. For a 4th Grade class/project, they were just okay. The kids liked them, but were not thrilled by any means. I also bought 'extra' stickers because 9 year old boys weren't going to be too thrilled with "pink hearts." Also, they <do> need the handle and it <does> need to be <very> secured with a glue gun! So all that considered - no.

I buy these every year
I buy these mailboxes every year for my kindergarten Valentines' party. The kids always love them. They love decorating them and putting things inside them. Plus, they look adorable on the tables with the other decorations. I will buy these every year as long as they make them! If you're not sure whether or not to buy them, do it. You won't find this anywhere else for such a good price.

Perfect idea for kids
I purchased this for my sons preschool class. This was a huge success. I glued the knobs on each mailbox and wrote the kids names on the heart. They were able to decorate the rest themselves. I'm glad I read the reviews and looked at the pieces ahead of time. Prepping this was so simple. I highly recommend this product.

Great for preschoolers
I bought these for my son's preschool class and they had a blast creating them. It was easy to do and was not messy at all! I gave it a good quality rating instead of excellent because there was one missing its parts and 3 that were dented when they arrived.
