Bright Glitter Recorders
Great for the price
I bought these for my 10 year old daughters birthday party for her goodie bags. I received all of them in perfect condition (none were cracked as indicated in other reviews) and they all played just like a kid recorder would. If you're looking to buy these for sound quality, then you're wasting your money, but if you want something fun for the kids, a party or as a fun kid gift, this was a great buy.

not a true musical instrument
I purchased these for a music camp and thought it would be great to give as a gift and use it for ensemble work. Unfortunately, the plastic recorders just cannot be played in tune, nor can they be tuned like a traditional Yamaha. The tuning changes drastically with the breath and mouth shape and if best, they'll be good to teach a simple song with 3 notes (I think I can get E, G and A to sound like the actual notes). I was disappointed because the ideas was good, I guess I should know that quality in instruments comes with the price.

Get what you pay for
These are not for formal recorder lessons. The quality of sound is mediocre but, I bought them for my preschoolers for fun and they love them. Plus, the glitter and colors make them fun too.

These recorders are a waste of plastic, they sound HORRIBLE. They were cheap $'s but sound even worse!

Use for forgotten recorders
I bought these recorders for the students who forget their recorders for class. Since these recorders are not in tune, they remember to bring their own recorders the next week. I would never use these as a teaching instrument.

This is the 3rd time I've purchased these and they were a hit once again. The children all loved them. They are slightly translucent in color and glittery. Exactly as shown. Quality is good for under a dollar each. Yes, they will brake and crack after being dropped a few times, and the sound is slightly off, but these are toys, and for a toy these are perfect. Each comes individually wrapped in plastic making it easy for gifting.

Great fun for young children while they learn about making music.
I have purchased the recorders for young children under the age of 6 so they can experiment and discover how fun it is to make musical sounds. They're durable and easy to grasp. they look great in a basket of musical instruments for children-esp. for a charity raffle.

Great goodie bag toy!
These were received quickly and were wrapped well, so they were completely undamaged. The glitter beneath the surface makes it an attractive toy and the construction was very good, so nothing fell apart - even with a toddler playing/dropping/playing! This was well received and much appreciated
