      A:

      Due to the hand painted nature of this product, each one is different so I cannot answer for sure that each gourd has a "front" and "back".

        We ordered these for our Caribbean destination wedding. They are very good quality, super colorful and large. The only thing to remember is that they are sold in sets of 2 - I missed that and ended up with double what we needed.

            We are using these as our wedding favors for our destination wedding in Mexico in a couple of months.

            What I love about maracas is that they are the quintessential item that tourist love to purchase when they visit Mexico. It is a gift that suits all ages.

            I have done a ton of research on this item and the Windy City Novelties website is the only one that produces a quality and authentic looking maraca for a low, reasonable price.

            I placed an order for 3 dozen (36 pieces) maracas. All were in really great condition. We did have one that was broken but I notified their customer service dept and they sent me a pair of maracas free of charge that arrived a day later.

            I highly recommend these maracas and this company. They really know how to treat their customers. Heck, I would purchase a car from them if only they sold them.

              I am a musician playing for seniors at retirement homes. They love to play along with my guitar and piano as we sing old-time favorites. These are colorful, make a lot of noise and bring smiles to all who use them. Thanks for a truly wonderful product at the best price - anywhere.

                          I was weary about ordering a large quantity item that is labeled as "genuine hand painted" and not receiving a quality product. However, my order of 6 dozen pairs was a great addition to a salsa themed corporate event with dance instructors and dj. They added a great element to my tables as well as an interactive prop and something for my attendees to take home!

                            This is a rather large set of maracas. Very authentic & festive. The handles are wooden (not painted), so if you want a more rustic look I'd go with these rather than the ones that are fully painted. Customer service was FANTASTIC when I had questions & shipping was quick. Definitely would recommend!

                            Maracas are Jingle Bells in a Gourd

                            I surprised my church choir with maracas to accompany our Christmas Calypso song. Instant hit!
                            (both literally & figuratively)
                            Fun filled the air as we jingled our maracas to the calypso beat. What enjoyment these gave to us and the congregation. I can't imagine singing without them.

                              I ordered these to use for my preschool children's Christmas program and they are perfect! I had ordered maracas from another site and was very disappointed with the size and quality. These are very large and most importantly make a LOT of noise! My 30, 4 year olds will be singing Feliz Navidad and using the maracas, they just LOVE them. I will say that they are fragile, I would not use them for younger kids, they need to be handled carefully and my kids are so happy to have them that they are being very careful! A great purchase!

                                I ordered these for my daughters soccer team for them to cheer one another on from the sidelines. The girls loved them! I saw the same item at a local music store for 10x's the price. We recently were in Mexico and these are the same item that are sold in Mexico and at the same price. If you bang them against one another they may crack - that happened to one. But as long as you just shake them, you should have no problems. One handle came off during delivery but all the beans were still inside so I was able to quickly glue that back together. I would absolutely buy these again!!!
