Great for School
I used these in my science table with sand. My preschoolers enjoyed digging up the skeletons for the letter X!

Not Really Bendable
Not really bendable or posable--the plastic is too strong and the wire inside too weak, so they don't take or hold poses.

Flexible, not bendable.
Skeletons are flexible, not bendable. They do not hold a position when bent. The feet come facing sideways and do not hold a front facing position when bent to stand that way. I wanted the arms to bend forward to use in a decoration for a party. The arms flex from the body but do not stay in any other position than the way they came. Many of the skeletons have non-matching red dots in the eye sockets making the quality seem poor - like a big blob of red in one eye and a little red eye in the other. There are also red eye dots on some of the other skeletons in other places on their bodies that I am having to scrape off. Don't get me wrong, I love Oriental Trading, but the description and quality of this item is a little off.

Not as expected.
Bendable skeletons as not as bendable as shown by the photos posted on line.

Cute but not very bendable
While these are cute, they're not very bendable, nor do they stand on their own. They'll still work for party favors but I had envisioned them being stood around holding napkins etc and that isn't going to happen.

I've come back for more skeletons!
These are a nice size, classically spooky, and good for a variety of ages. I bought these previously to put in kids' party goodie bags and ours have stuck around and come out each Halloween. I'm ordering more this year to hand out to trick-or-treaters instead of candy.

cute, but lower quality than previous versions
I give toys for Halloween, and every year I purchase the toys *after* Halloween to get a good price! These skeletons are cute, and the sale price is great. But I have a few skeletons from an order years ago that are of higher quality -- the ones I just received aren't as flexible. But they're nice treats.

Silly little guys with red eyes
Bought these to go in Halloween bags for the wounded warriors in CA. The red eyes were a fun addition to the skeletons & they were fun to bend & play with for all ages. No complaints here!
