12 DIY Fabulous Foam Great Gliders
cute party favors
I bought these for my son's birthday party next month. I thought they would make a cute craft project the kids could make here and take home. While they are cute, I put one together to see how it flew and they don't fly too well. So it really just depends on what you want them for. If you want them as a cute craft project, they are good. If you want kids to actually be able to fly them, not so good. They are also pretty flimsy, but I am still satisfied because they will be good party favors.

Okay, not super impressed
I decided to package each set of parts for a glider into a "snack" baggie to put in birthday goodie bags. I found a picture online that shows the little plastic weight on the front of the plane (otherwise, I had no way of knowing where that's supposed to go), and that helped the flying tremendously. They still aren't great, but they do fly a little. The problem with packaging them ahead of time is that while there are parts for 12 gliders, there are only 6 sheets of the foam letters, so I had to leave those out so that some kids didn't feel left out. I have come back because I need more than 12, but now I think I should pay a little bit more and get the larger set of 72 gliders that are already decorated (should have gotten those to begin with).

Don't waste your money
I bought these to include in my little boys goody bags from his birthday party. They don't fly, just as previous reviewers have stated. And they are not individually packaged which is a pain in the rear! The stickers come on sheets so it's not easy to separate them. I'm really disappointed in these :(

Purchased to use in a four-year-old classroom. Luckily we tested one before we gave it to the kids. They do not fly - just crash. They are flimsy and not worth even attempting to use.
Not recommended at all

Fun Craft, But No Fly
Good craft for young kids but don't expect them to fly because of the foam material they are made out of and the weight added from the foam stickers they can be decorated with.
