My sons and their friends LOVED them!
Although they are just styrofoam and break easily, my boys and their friends loved them. They flew nicely and as the kids broke their glider we gave them new ones. It was a lot of fun for them and one of the more exciting goodie bag items among the group. If you do the math, they're about .27 cents each, it's not too bad in my eyes. Some goodie bag items run $1 each toy and the majority aren't made to last forever so for the fun and price. It was worth it.

I gave these away at my daughters 5th birthday party and they were a hit. As every kid walked out the door they had their glider in hand ready to launch.

I wish I had read the reviews before buying this item. It's bad, does not fly anything, falls quickly, my son is very disappointed with the purchase. They were a part of his birthday surprises

On the fence, but the kids weren't.
While the tails fell off easily, it didn't stop the kids from enjoying them. They even mixed and matched the tails which constantly fell off.

Cute, but poorly made.
I bought these for my daughter's birthday. They are very cute and the box comes with more than enough for the average party. We put one together to test it before the party and found that the nose piece and tail do not stay on at all. Every time my daughter would throw it, those two pieces would come off. We haven't tried any more yet and don't know if it was a flaw in that particular one or if they are all like that.

My only negative of this product is that there are 4 different gliders, but you can't tell which one is which unless you open them. I wanted to give 4 different ones to everyone, but I couldn't do that without opening them...

I've tried most of gliders OTC sells and these seems best. Preferred by 3rd Graders of East LA.

Great for Dino Lovers!
Purchased these as a favor for my sons upcoming birthday party. We took one out to try and while some people say they have had difficulties getting it to fly and it breaking easy, we have not experienced that. We did put a small piece of paper in the front where the weight goes to hold it on better and it soars nicely. For the price you can't beat it!!

Flimsy - Will break easily
Dino Gliders are not worth the money. They are beautiful - but are very flimsy. My 5 yr old son broke the glider after 2 uses. The styrofoam is very frail, it's thin and very brittle. Will break easily. Do not recommend.

Ordered these for my kids dinosaur birthday party. They were difficult to put together only because the kids kept ripping them. But, they did enjoy them and had a blast racing them around the room. Good that they send plenty of them with the order!
