These are great value for money and are ideal for packing gifts such as fruit, cosmetics, baby items, sweets. The baskets are well made and would be used again and again. The weaving is close making the the baskets really sturdy, and a good size as they do not cost a fortune to fill but look really nice when made up/
I got these baskets for two proposes: first, as a dropping place for the Easter Bunny, and second to display toys on a shelf for my toddler. While i like the size and the look, I must say that they are a tad splintery. Granted, baskets have rough edges, that's OK. But these just have more than their fair share. It was a success with the Easter Bunny, who dropped little toys and even a chocolate bunny into it! But I'm not sure they are appropriate for keeping toys going forward.
