Lots of fun for the kiddos
Overall, this product was a hit. My only issue was that some of the pieces were tricky for little fingers to peel apart, and some of the stickers had no adhesive on the back (usually at the end of a sheet). Still though, the kids in my daughter's class (first graders) had fun with them.
I do want to say that the customer service here was wonderful in resolving my issue. I needed exactly 24 ginger-kids, and I ordered two kits. One of the ginger-girls came with a sizable hole in her chest, so I didn't want to use her. Oriental Trading sent me another kit for free, and it got to my house quickly.

not individually packed
i was so excited didn't realize it's not individually packed, so i have to make sure to divide up the stickers.

I bought these for my 5 year old son to make and give to family members as Christmas gifts from him. I was looking for simple ornaments that don't require any gluing so he can make them by himself. These are perfect. He really enjoys making the gingerbread people and decorating them how he wants. They are really cute ornaments.

Nice variety of decorations
The hat and candy candy cane need the paper left on or they will stick to table because they overlap on the gingerbread man. This can be difficult because not all the the paper backing was cut all the way through. Nice variety of decorations but would prefer primary rather than hot pink, green and turquoise.

Great for preschoolers
This was a very great craft!! I got them to do with my daughters Pre-K class and they had a great time, so did the teachers and I. They came with plenty of stickers, but some were kinda hard to get out because they weren't cut all the way, but it was still great. Also wish they had more options on quantity of gingerbread men in one unit because it came with 12, but there were 14 students so I had to order another set just for 2 more, but I let my daughter and nieces do the rest. Tip: Any part of the foam stickers that is not going to be sticking to anything make sure to leave the paper on that part because then they start sticking to everything. All in all it was an excellent buy and no glue mess. I would definitely recommend this.

Cute Tree Decorations!
I bought these for my kindergarten class to use to decorate our classroom trees. There were a lot of pieces to punch out, but the pieces provided a lot of entertainment for the kids. They had a blast decorating the gingerbread men.
The only problem is many of the pieces may go in the gingerbread people's hands or on their heads and stick up from the actual gingerbread person. The sticky parts of these pieces are still somewhat exposed and are a bit of a pain. I assume the sticky-ness will wear off eventually!
