Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momofsharklover Party favor
These were small swords I used as a favor for guests at my daughter's fencing-themed party. I ordered 2 dozen and 2 swords arrived with the jewel (on the handle# off. I reattached with hot glue and they were fine. The kids went crazy over these. They are not the sturdiest swords, but for our purpose, it worked out great. #Kids were average of 10 years old)

When I received the swords 4 already were broken and several already had no jewels on them. I understand they aren't sturdy but to receive them already damaged isn't good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lhygh The price makes it worth it.
We bought these for a pirate themed party. When we got them some had already come apart but it was nothing a little super glue didn't fix. They are pretty flimsy but for the price we paid I would still recommend them. The kids liked playing with them and that is what mattered.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FrederickMom Great prop... poor quality
These were the most affordable swords I could find, and they came in a pack of twelve, which was more than I needed... but I bought them...
They arrived, and six of the twelve had parts broken off them- mostly the red or blue jewels on the ends of the swords. One had a broken handle...
The good news is that the 3 year olds at the party didn't really care, they had a great time sword fighting and I didn't have to worry that they would hurt themselves or any furniture because the swords are really lightweight plastic and have rounded balls on the ends (like fencing swords)...
So overall, they were effective for the party and a good toy, but I dont think I'd buy them again because the quality is so poor, that after the party I basically had to throw them all out.

My husband and I are the Children's pastors at our church and we love to spoil them and shower them with gifts that come from bible teachings. As we always want to bless our Children's Church and sometimes it can be difficult. Oriental trading makes our object lessons come alive, a tangible object that the students can actually keep and take home. That's not paper!!! The students love gifts and we love our children's church so we will continue to buy from you.

The kids really liked the swords. The jewels on the bottom keep falling off before we even opened the package.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CapnSavvy Great if you don't intend to play with them
I ordered these for my pirate themed wedding. They were intended as favors, and for guests to salute my husband and I as we left. For this purpose they were perfect for the price. When they arrived I had to replace one jewel, but none of the swords broke during the wedding. Of course, my guests were all adults who weren't dueling or playing with the swords. I'm afraid if they were handled roughly they wouldn't last long.
So- great to wear as part of a costume or for wedding favors/decorations, but not too great as toys.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MadDogMike Looks great, falls apart fast
These swords were used at a pirate event for children. They looked great when taken out of package. Had several break as soon as the kids got their hands on them. Handles broke, sword came apart at handle, gems fell out of handle. Ordered 100 for event, had to reissue 10-15 because of broken parts. Would not order the same swords again. There are other swords available from Oreintal Trading Company for same price that hold up much better.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hezzy Super disappointed
I was not happy when we pulled the swords out of their sheaths and saw how silly looking and wimpy they were. I bought these for my sons birthday party and they didn't last two seconds with 8year olds sword fighting. My advice to you is spend a little bit more and get something else.
