Great Elf Hats!
This is the 3rd year I have bought these elf hats or similar ones from Oriental Trading. The ones I bought last year did not have the ears. These are not for long term use. They will probably last one kids party. They are paper hats, but they are surprisingly durable. My students wear them when decorating their Gingerbread House Trees. I would definitely recommend these for kids. Great price and great product!

Not up to OT standards
The hats were extremely thin and tore when opened due to glue overspray. Many came in defective and could not be used. They were almost too small for the first grader's heads and many bands had to be taped just to make them serviceable.

I purchase quite alot of products from your company, and I have to say that this is the first time I've purchased an item where I ended horribly dissappointed. I should have checked them out before I started to hand them out to my 2nd grade religion students. I was using them to teach that they should always help others like Jesus did, like santas elves. Well these hats tore before they could even be opened! Most were glued together. Most of two packages in the trash! Needless to say I had a lot of dissappointed elves in my class. Do not waste your money.

these hats were cheaply made. I bought them for 5 year old children and half of the hats did not fit and I recieved them in very poor condition. The kids that did wear them they all ripped within 5 minutes. will never buy them again!

It's an OKAY purchase
We purchased these for our family Christmas party and found that they only fit the smaller kids' heads. It will not fit an adult sized head at all. Very flimsy-- the kids had fun with them, but they were completely destroyed in an hour.

cute hats but
the elf hats were cute - but alot of the tops were stuck together - so since they were made of tissue paper - when we tried to take them apart - they tore. luckily we had ordered extras so we had enough - but i would have been very upset if we hadn't had enough of them because of the damaged ones.

flimsy, too small
These hats are such a disappointment. They are so small they will only fit the smallest child. They tear as soon as you try to put the hat on, the red tissue part tears. They cannot be used.

These hats are cute but they are quite flimsy. They tore as soon as we put them on the kids' heads. If you intend to keep them as decoration, then it's ok. But don't use it as a hat for kids costumes.

don't do it!
bought these elf hats in the past for library parties and they were great. Unfortunately this batch was not. They were all stuck together and, when pulled apart, the design on ears ripped off. Hats didn't fit my 2-4 yr old group and, when we tried to open wider, ripped at the crown.
