WOW! We couldn't wait!
We opened the package when they came to see what we had purchased. To our great suprise they were more than what we expected. We opened two gliders and spent the next ten minutes flying them in our living room! Great fun and they will be a hit at Dad's suprise 100th birthday party. He still flies a Piper PA-12 and this will add to the aviation theme!

Not such a good review
We purchased two types of foam planes as a give away. These planes did not seem as sturdy. Even when we put them together they flopped around and did not fly as well as the WWI flying planes. We still had to assist with the assembly because they would tear if the children were too rough while trying to put them together. I was also not very happy with the packaging of this product. The box it was in was all falling apart and I had to tape it in several places to hold it together. The shipping box also arrived all torn and mangled. Glad I did not order anything breakable.

Every 5 year old child that got one of these either ripped it during assembly or destroyed it after one or two flights. The foam is way too thin.

Very Pleased with Purchase
I purchased these for our "Air Force" themed annual Board meeting. The plan is to hang these from balloon clouds and they're going to be perfect! Excellent product for the price!

Foam is really flimsy. Take care while putting together. Add a little tape to keep wings in place. They fly GREAT!! Kids loved them.

I bought these for my son's birthday party as party favors. The foam planes were so delicate that the adults had to put them together. When the kids tried (which they very much wanted to do) they ripped apart. Once put together, they survived one or two "flights" before breaking apart. Total junk. Don't buy.

Not so good
Planes fly pretty well, but you get the dye from them all over your hands. I would not recommend these unless you don't care about the kids hands or clothes.

Was not expecting exceptional quality for the price, but did expect the parts to fit....slots too small for the wings.....nose too small for the red plastic tip. Will have to cut all slots larger by hand and figure out how to fix the nose so tip will stay on.
Would not purchase again even for good price....bought for summer reading program at library...really too bad.

These gliders are really easy to assemble and fly GREAT! I bought these for favors at my son's birthday party and the kids loved them! Loads of fun!
