Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rlibrarian Lots of fun
I purchased these planes as an art project for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders. They are very easy to assemble, and the kids had a blast flying them (indoors). They don't fly so well, but the kids still had a good time with them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ckck Disappointed preschoolers!
I purchased two sets of the planes for my son's preschool end of the year party since they were fairly gender neutral. The quality of the product was less than I hoped for. The foam is not thick enough to even keep the wings straight, so the kids couldn't get their little planes to fly at all. It was also difficult to get the pieces ready to be put together. They did not separate easily (and this comes from adults doing this, not the preschool kids). The planes look cute, but the kids were disappointed that they could not fly them, which was the overall point.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by puppyfeet cute, a bit a prep though
The stickers come in sheets and were a bit hard to get out of the outer "molding" without tearing. I went ahead and took them all out myself then just had them in a bowl so all the kids had to do was take off the backing and apply. Pretty cute little planes though

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sara1017 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Planning 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).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cyndilouwho 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 :(
