I didn't want to bug fast track twice in one day (they forgot to send my bonding pouch) because they've been going through a tough time recently, so I thought I'd ask you guys. Any experience with these, and if so, did they work ok? I just tried seven of my twelve, and only found two that closed (and if you flick those they pop open).

Oh, I got more to work; the piece connecting the top and bottom of the chest wasn't bent enough, and the force of it trying to straighten was the problem for a bunch of them.

I used them for years, and used to even sell them. I still have a few laying around. My experience with them was good. You would get one once in a while that wouldnt stay shut, or the tabs that hold it closed would break off. But for the most part I was happy with them and the gliders liked them.

You can use the cheap plastic Easter eggs as foraging toys!

Try to find the smaller size if you can. They are easier for them to manage wink

I'll keep and eye out for those eggs. The chests are working now, just had to get the bed in the attachment piece :-)

My babies don't seem to get the Easter eggs. Mine only like the treasure chests. I have had a few break also :thumbd: And honestly as cheap as the chests are, if they break you can easily buy more. Easter eggs are nice but you can only find them one time a year.

I get them at thrift stores. The ones here have them all the time. I look for the thinner more flexible ones. Very hard and bigger ones can be too hard to open
