DIY Beautiful 3D Butterfly/Fairy Wings
We had a Tinkerbell party for our 4 year old daughter and I purchased these wings as a craft for all of the little girls to make. The wings arrived in good condition and also arrived early, which was wonderful! The wings are made of a posterboard material and have elastic bands for the arms to go through. The girls were 3 - 4 years old and they all loved decorating these wings. I purchased the little self adhesive gems and I also cut up some construction paper for the girls to glue onto the wings. The back center of the wings seems to be a little weak and a few ripped apart. But, we had tape and we fixed the wings up better than new. Having some colorful duct tape would be a good thing to have on hand. Other than this, I loved this product and would definitely purchase this again for any future fairy or butterfly parties or play dates. The price was well worth the experience.

Wings are okay
I bought thiese wings for a Girl Scouts flying sup ceremony. Fortunately the girls will only be wearing them for about 15 minutes because they aren't going to last much longer.
The wings are flmsy. I will need to reinforce them wth packing tape on the connection between the wings. Two of them broke just as we were just trying the on.
The elastic is short so I will have to replace that. And one of those broke right away also.
And, when they are on, They fall forward and the girls have to keep pushing them back. I may try to stiffen them with craft sticks or wire.
It was better than constructing them ourselves but I'm not happy with the quality.

Worst Purchase ever
These were the worst thing I ever got through Oriental Trading. My school bought them for a Christmas concert and I had second grade girls do the part and every single one of them broke on the paper strap in the middle and almost every strap came off. I ended up taping them back together and any little spots that I missed still fell apart.

Worst Purchase Ever
These were the worst product I ever had purchased. Almost everyone of the wings tore or the straps broke. Very flimsy cardboard. What a waste of money for our program.

these were wonderful! Even the 2 year olds enjoyed them! The only downside was that they were a little flimsier than I thought they would be! But super fun and added SO much to the party! would definitely recommend them!

Great art project, however best for small kids ages 3-5. My six year old had to be very careful taking her wings on and off to not pull out the elastic loops. I took the advice of another buyer and painted the larger wings and let the kids decorate with pens and stickers the smaller wings. They loved wearing them at the b-day fairy party however they are delicate since they are just made of thick paper. Keep a staple and tape close by for quick repairs!
