Served their purpose
The scarves served their purpose of playing games with toddlers. I would buy them again. Looks like I will need to each year.

scarves were too small. Purchases same scarves several years ago and they were twice as big.
The scarves were too small. These same scarves were purchased by me several years ago for a children's storytime and they were twice as big and could wear them on your head!
These scarves were like small napkins.

Good for the Price
The scarves were stiff as others had said, but work well for what we paid for them (pretty inexpensive)

disappointing - very stiff
I have owned juggling scarves before, so did have expectations. These are very stiff -not what I expected. I thought that washing them would soften them, so I washed by hand -as the label indicated - but it made no difference. Now I just have stiff scarves with lots of crinkles.. They have the stiffness of tulle (not the weave) so when thrown in the air, they do not seem to float properly. I cannot return them as I washed them and took off labels, anticipating they would soften. I like Oreintal Trading and have not had issues before.

Great movement activity
A little stiff to begin with, but after use the scarves softened.
Great item for movement breaks in special education classrooms.

Good for the price
My son likes to juggle these, tie them around things, etc. They are good for imaginative play. They are stiff, but he doesn't seem to mind. I think for the price, this was a good buy.

colorful but chintzy
These are stiff rectangles 14.5 to 16" on a side of colorful plastiky fabric, probably polyester. The edges are secured with a loose chain stitch. Some contained debris that looked like food when I received them.
They will do for waving in the air in time to music. I wouldn't want babies to chew on them.

I bought these scarves for my Music Class. The colors are nice, and they are well stitched, but they are pretty stiff and smaller than described. I thought they looked smaller than I expected and when I measured them I found that their sizes vary between 14'' and 15 1/2'' squares. I think I will be returning them.

I agree with previous review
They are great for music and movement, but they do start to fray over time. I have had my 3 dozen for 3 years now and many of them need replacing. The kids do love them though, they're fun for throwing in the air and catching, playing peek-a-boo games (they are transparent so not scary for little kids), and can be used for wings and dance extension.

Right Price for Our Budget...
Used for PreK Dance classes. Edges have frayed, which distracts the students, but they still have fun dancgin with their "butterfly wings."
