Whistle Beach Safe Containers with Compass
Larger than expected
I purchased this item to include in a survival package I put together for my family.
It is larger than expected, but I think a great value.

About 12 % of items purchased were defective!
I purchased 4 dozen of the Whistle Beach Safe Containers for our Community Neighborhood Watch National Night Out. These were given as safety whistles for the children. We have a pool in our community; therefore, the water-tight compartment was a great feature.
Unfortunately, ten or more whistles were defective. They either did not produce a whistle when blown or the compass fell apart or off the whistle.
This was very disappointing to the children and embarrassing to me as the donor of these items.

Used these for Easter and whistles worked. Good quality. One of the compass came off but I was able to glue it back on.

The Girl Scout troop loved it.
The Girl Scout troop loved it. We used the inside area for an emergency kit. The compasses worked okay and the girls all 7 to 10 years of age got to learn about using these tools in an emergency situation for a badge.

The quality of these things is SO low I can't even believe it. The compasses fell of in the bag, before we even opened it. The plastic cracked at places, and some of the whistles had holes that were awkwardly plugged with glue. REALLY TERRIBLE, even for a cheap toy.

Not very sturdy
Easily pops open when walking.

Even nicer than they look!
I ordered these to make "survival necklaces" for our scouts. They are bigger and heavier than I expected. Great quality! The whistles are nice and loud. The container has plenty of room for bandaids, safety pins and other goodies to keep the boys prepared on their hikes. The colors are also very nice and bright. Overall, just a great product!

I bought these for a camping trip that my Girl Scouts and I will be going on. The compasses do not all work, but other wise this was a great buy. We will be putting a small first aid kit the girls made inside, and the whistle works great as well. They are not waterproof.

This item is not good for water. It is suppose to be leak proof but water still gets in.

Lots of fun!
I bought these for my son's 8th birthday party at the pool and the kids really liked them, especially the whistles!
