5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good for such a low cost item.
These aren't museum quality, and some bits will be broken, but you do get quite a few really good fossils for less the price of one on it's own. Our box has several crinoid stems, one quite long, a good trilobite, a number of sharks teeth and more.

2.0 out of 5 stars A lot of dust
A lot of the pieces are fragments that are so small they are little more than dust: as a way to introduce a child to the world of fossils they are too small, and not very interesting. So rather than a box of fossils you get 1 or 2 pieces that are okay, and the rest are too small and in pieces to be more than dust.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fossil box, 16 Dec. 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Child's Junior Fossils Collection Box with Free Mini Plastic Magnifier ( include Shark Tooth Trilobite Nautiloid Crinoid Barchiopod Ammonite Fossil ) (Toy)
Bought as a stocking filler, ideal as it is a small box. Ok selection in it, fine as a novelty or to see if the child is really interested. Box lid was practically impossible to remove and got damaged when I finally managed it.
Overall a nice little gift for the price, but probably worth paying more for a better set if the child has already got a collection of fossils.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product for starter fossil interest, 31 Jan. 2015

The seller has described the item well, packaged this well and the item arrived quickly. The lesser rating is only because of expectations not being met which is not the fault of the seller but due to being underwhelmed by the items. My 9 year old son thought the fossil clippings were really good but I would recommend you pay more and get the sellers other fossil product that has the larger items. This is good for small children to handle fossils.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... the price and taking into consideration some of the poor reviews, I thought this would be underwhelming, 26 Nov. 2014

I wasn't expecting much for the price and taking into consideration some of the poor reviews, I thought this would be underwhelming. I took the chance as it is such low item price and I really think this was great value. I'm very pleased- it's a small box containing small fossils but you can tell what they are clearly- no dust!!! I think there is plenty of fun to be had identifying and exploring the contents.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not at all like the picture shows, 12 Sept. 2014

Extremely disappointing. Tiny pieces of rock, barely distinguishable as fossils. Mainly all the same. Not at all like the picture shows. Frequent buyer on Amazon but this product is appalling. Bought to use as part of evolution project in class but children would not be interested in shrapnel. Do not waste any money at all on this.
