To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This toy is a great idea, however if you have the toy in the chest and try to insert the coins they get in the way which is frustrating for little ones. Also, 1 of the chests doesn’t unlock; I have to pry it open for the kids each time :/
Update- the kids in my class love these but now that they’re had more opportunities to play ruff then they are even more flawed. You can open the chests too far and then they won’t close correctly. They get stuck and you have to push inwards on the back of the chest as you push it closed. This toy is a huge disappointment.
I loved the concept of this activity and was so excited to use it with my clients in speech therapy. On the first day one of the treasure chests broke. I was able to fix it. The next week the lock on the yellow treasure chest broke and was not fixable. Finally this week I noticed that my students were easily able to unlock the chest without the key due to wear and tear. Just a great activity for all areas of speech, however, the quality is terrible. so disappointed.
It’s a cool toy, but the package we received didn’t contain a purple key! There were two yellow keys instead. You can still open the treasure chests without a key (you have to sort of twist them), but it was disappointing that the product didn’t arrive as pictured.
What bothers me most is I read other reviews that mentioned a chest broke or arrived broken. I thought that wouldn’t happen to us - I love learning resources products! But of course, it happened. The green pirate chest broke the first time we opened it, that is my son‘s favorite color so that was a bummer. The second time we played with it the blue one started to give. So basically I paid $20 for five little “treasures” … not cool.
I really want to give this toy more stars because kids really love the keys/unlocking feature, and the little treasures are adorable. BUT our set arrived missing the yellow treasure chest (instead included TWO purple ones). The yellow key was unusable w/o the chest. Additionally, our blue treasure chest does not function properly (kids cannot unlock it like the other ones). .
As others seem to be experiencing, box #4 does not open at all with key. Box #3 does open, but does not pop back into a locked position like the others do which requires it to be manually locked. Honestly, for a Learning Resources toy the quality just isn't there on this one.
I requested a replacement, I'll update my review if by chance we have better luck with another.
Had to buy and exchange once already. The replacement set had a worse chest 4 and 2, so I sent it back and kept original. First issues boxes were not springing open with key turn. Now today we are playing them (for the first time in a couple weeks) and the top of 2 gets stuck and then broke off when he tried to push it closed. And 4 never opens on its own. So disappointed bc I am just a couple weeks past my return window so now we are stuck w it broken. I love learning resource toys but I would not recommend this one.
The colors on mine were dull and not at all like the pictures. Kids can not identify the red. When you add the toy, you cannot put the coins in the slot and that frustrates kids. The springs are fragile and break easily. It's expensive for an activity that lasts one day. :(
