Butterfly Memo Clip Magnet Craft Kit
Fun for the girls!
This is an adorable craft. The first set that arrived came without the clips, but OT quickly sent me new set free!
A good glue stick works for the foam pieces, but use strong craft glue for the clips--make sure you can allow drying time!
I used small pieces of duct tape instead of glue gun to hold on the antennae--much easier and safer than hot glue and the girls could use it themselves.
The girls in our group (age 5-7) loved doing this craft!

cute and age appropriate
we did this for a 4 year old birthday party. steps are relatively simple (everyone needed help w/ the antennae though) but need to be done in a certain order so needed a lot of adult interaction and not sure how much creativity kids were able to put in individually. this was a very cookie-cutter and simple project to do with them. only one step requires glue; i had one glue thing and passed around to minimize mess. the foam pieces otherwise are peel-off stickers. the price is great so something i would definitely reorder for the same purpose.

Kids loved them
I read all the other reviews, however we had no problems, we got all the parts needed and they turned out so cute! I ended up hot glueing them since they kept coming apart. Maybe next time I will try glue dots?

I just opened these for our class to make and was VERY upset. Only one of the two packs I ordered had magnets, it didn't have the string like the picture. The name of the product is "Memo Clip" and NEITHER PACK came with CLIPS!!!! The purple butterfly foam had ink smeared from the Oriental trading stamp on both sides!

Purchased this for my daughter to give as presents this holiday season. Sadly, we were unlucky enough to get one of the kits without the clothespins. I'm guessing they can be made with regular clothespins, but it's still disappointing, and an added cost I was not expecting.
Make sure you check the bags as soon as they arrive to make sure everything is there!

I purchased these as a craft to make for my daughter's upcoming 4th birthday. Mine came with all the pieces and I am excited about the kids making them!

The butterflies are adorable!! But I didn't get a single clip in the bunch. And that is specifically one of the reasons we chose this item over something else. Very disappointing. We order from Oriental Trading all the time and rarely have issues.

I read the reviews on this item before I purchased it and they were all favorable. The February 2010 reviewer and I must have received our orders from the same batch since my order was also missing the clips. For work I organize events for large Girl Scout groups and I always "test drive" a craft before purchasing 200-300 of them. I am glad I did that in this case!!

I ordered this and was very disappointed. It did not come with the clips. I called and told them that and got ok I will send them out again. Again no clips. This was the reason I ordered this so that the kids could clip things to it. Finaly we went out and brought our own clips

these are adorable butterfly clips, the only thing i might recommend is buying extra magnets, the ones that come with them appear to be scrap ones and some are very small
