Chinese Character Necklaces
They were cute & all the kids loved them. Some of the party guests wore them to school the next day!!

We purchased these necklaces for my son's Ninja-themed birthday party. When they arrived the were a tangled mess. Not only did my husband and I spend over an hour trying to untangle them, upon closer inspection we realized they were poorly made. The words are squished together on the pendant and are difficult to read. Also, many of them have cracks/creases running through the words which means we can't give them out as party favors. Extremely disappointed in the quality of this product (many others are great)! I purchase often from OT and will continue to do so in the future.

Worst Product I ever Got BUT I have a happy outcome
This item turned out to be a disaster. They were cheap and the characters on the charm were disfigured and stretched out. The charm was also rubber and When I got them they were all tangled up so bad I could NOT get them all apart. I had to cut them to in short pieces to get them all apart which rendered them useless. However I did find a purpose that ended up making them useful but still was very unhappy. Since I had to cut them so short I got the idea to use them to tie my gift bags together from all the other items I purchased on this website and I used some to decorate plain gold small gift bags. I added sample pictures below of what I did with them. But I never would buy them again. Not even for $1.00

Can't we get the characters right?
I thought that these were cute to use as party favors, sort of to embody what idea we want to keep in mind for the coming year. However, several of the Chinese Letters are incorrectly translated on the necklaces. I know they are cheap and all, but that's no excuse. The material is also very cheap with plastic pendants (expected) and some kind of plastic cord as the necklace. String of some time would have been better.

Whatever You Do DON'T Let These Monsters Touch Each Other!
We bought these for our school AR Prize Store and they have become my worse nightmare! If you have them ANYWHERE in the same room they will become hopeless snarled. Despite HOURS of trying to get these apart they were still as tangled as ever. The silky cord used just tightens up the more you pull.
So STOP PULLING! Simply clip off the bead and then the slip not on the other end. Pull the charm and hopefully each of the ends will slide right out. Then restring and tie off the bead. Last tie the loose end of the cord just below the bead. This still represented a LOT of work. I'd recommend you IMMEDIATELY - not seconds later - put each of these in their OWN baggie!!! Don't even inhale - BAG, BAG, BAG!!!
PLEASE Oriental Trading, bag these individually!

The wording on some of the necklaces was so messed up you could not read them. Both the parents and the kids loved the ones I was able to use.

Very interesting product!
These pendants are very interesting. The words are written backwards on the back but i thought that was cleaver. Some of the pendants were shiny (they had a golden sheen over one side) and others had small but noticable holes or slash mark in the material. only two had the hole for the string cut out in the middle of the word. But these will serve to deliver the message they say to those that wear them and that was my goal!

Nice but TANGLED!!
These are nice pendants but be prepared to spend HOURS untangling the rats nest of a mess they came out of the package in. Seriously. Think of the movie "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy Chase... think of the ball of Christmas lights he hands to his son to detangle. That would have been easy compared to how these necklaces were tangled and wound up together. It took HOURS to untangle. No exaggeration! The kids loved them, but the adults didn't like the tangled mess!

necklaces were good quality, but were all tangled! Took a hour to untangle, had to break some to get the knots out.
