      Comments about 7 inch Genuine Hand Painted Mexican Gourd Maracas 12 Pack:

      I ordered these maracas as favors for each guest at our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. They were beautifully painted and had great sound - the perfect accompaniment to the live mariachi music. Our son and daughter in law were told they had to kiss each time someone shook their maracas which encouraged guests to use them frequently! They were surprisingly sturdy and looked terrific with our table decor, adding exactly the authentic touch I hoped they would. We were more than satisfied with them and even gave several pair to the owner of the restaurant who loved them too!

        Comments about 7 inch Genuine Hand Painted Mexican Gourd Maracas 12 Pack:

        I bought 12 dozen pairs as favors for my wedding [...] The maracas look better in real life than the pictures online. They are AUTHENTIC! This was the best price I found for a good product. The pairs were individually wrapped, which made it easier to distribute them. The service was excellent, and I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience.

            I could not be happier with these - I purchased 2 dozen for my wedding in Mexico; Great value and fun colors and all have palm trees on them (although I completely painted over them). There were blue, pink, red, orange, yellow, and purple maracas. The sound was good (enough beans to make a good sound), surprisingly sturdy, and large size (sizes were assorted, but all similar). The handle is not painted at all, just wood. I would highly reccomend!

              We got these to use as wedding favors for our upcoming destination wedding. I was looking for something authentic, and I got it! These have a very nice design and size. Was a little upset about the colors, I seemed to get a lot of red ones and green ones and not as many of the other colors, and there were a couple that broke in shipping, but I was able to glue them back together easily. Overall, happy with my purchase. Thank you!

              Comments about 7 inch Genuine Hand Painted Mexican Gourd Maracas 12 Pack:

              These maracas were full sized at a great price and came in pairs. They have a good sound - made from pebbles and crushed pebbles in a dried, hard gourd - painted and decorated in brite colors. I was looking for some to give as a party favor and these were perfect.

              Four out of 96 that I ordered came broken but I did not need all of them. Their handles were just glued into the painted gourd so they are not made for rough handling.

                Great product. Life of the party. Be careful with small children, though. If you bang them hard enough, they can break. They contain small pebbles. We had thirty-six kids running around with them for 4-hours and broke two.

                          I am a zumba instructor and I was looking for a bulk quantity of maracas to use in class. These were great and affordable. I actually would have given them a 5 except one set came completely different. One maraca was normal size and the other one was really tiny. Those actually broke the first day of class, then another one broke. So I wouldn't say they are durable. I love them but not sure if I would buy again.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Oh my gosh delivery was fast and great.

                          Loved the product and thought they were super cute and really authentic looking. But as soon as i took them out of the package, at least 4 of them just fell apart immediately before we even used them.
