12 Bendable Ballerinas
Great Goodie bag filler
I bought these for my two girls 3rd/5th Ballerina Birthday and all the kids loved them. I gave the 4 star instead of 5 only because they are a bit hard to bend being small but over all they were a HIT.

So little and cheaply painted
I got these for the dental office I work at and the ballerinas are so small and hard to bend. The paint on the toy is all splattery-looking.
I know "you get what you pay for," but these just look so cheeeeap.

cute little things
Purchased these to go in gift boxes for dance recital. They are really cute and inexpensive. They will just barely fit inside the ballerina paper goody boxes on this site.

Not very bendy
I thought the arms and legs would bend better. You have to use quite a bit of force. Legs really only bend out (slightly) or front/back, not really like a ballerina. Some of the paint was smeared or chipped.

I bought these to give as prizes to my younger ballet students, however, before I could do so, I had to try to re-paint their faces. The painting was so bad, some of them barely had a mouth or eyes, and some were lopsided (one eye further down the face, for example). They had unhappy little faces, all looking like they were frowning. I used a black Sharpie marker to extend the corners of the mouths upward, attempting to make them smile, but it looked pretty cheesy. Also, they don't bend very easily. All in all, I would not waste my time with these.

perfect when you want to add it to something else
I actually think the quality got better this year.

Decent for Price
I used these for my 4years birthday party. Reading the reviews helped a lot. They only bend like shown in the photo which was fine with me. I bought 2 pkgs of 12 and 2 of them had paint pealing on the legs when I got them. Also, after lots of bending the arms and legs paint quickly break down and start to peel. This is good to know if you plan to bend them a bunch. However, others had mentioned this so I already was aware. I would not advise for younger then 4 or for kids that would chew on them. But great for make believe and dancing, the girls loved them.

Lovely little ballerinas!
I didn't expect or need them to bend, but if you do, then you will be disappointed. These are really cute and my kids love them.

Not what I thought
These are a lot smaller than I thought they'd be and much less bendable. They look cheaply made (the paint chippy) and they really don't bend much at all. Going to use them for party favors for my 7-year old, but I would not buy them again.

these are adorable; I bought them for the 3rd grade prize box at school, but I think there would be better for first graders. Hope they like them.
