Flexible Sombrero Straws
cute but hard to assemble
These are great looking when assembled, but, unfortunately, they are rather difficult to open. the little tags are tricky, so adults or those who are dextrous enough to do it are left with the task of assembly, which can take a lot of time. I also found that a number of them were not usable at all because they were incorrectly made. That being said, they sure looked cute on the tables andin our drinks!

We bought these for a fiesta themed graduation party. I was not pleased with them. First of all they were on neon colored, very thin straws, not the white and stripe ones pictures. They did not blend in with the rest of our decor. I thought I could just put them on different straws, but that isn't possible (they are attached and the wrapper is very thin). They were easy to assemble, but 2 out of 12 were broken so they did not form right. At least they didn't cost much.

Sombrero did not line up or close correctly. Appeared very cheap instead of festive. Nit even clear that it is a sombrero. I plan to return these, as we did not use them for our party. They were not nice enough.

Flexible Sombrero Straws are horrible
These sombrero straws are horrible. About 20 out of 100 worked but only because I had to use tape to keep them together. Never ever buy these items. They should be taken off the market.

Don't waste your money
These straws are horribly made. The cuts are wrong on the majority of the white tabs for the sombreros. Many are cut so poorly that they just rip or twist up in a peculiar manner when put together. Not worth the money or the aggravation.

Not bad, but not good
This was the one product that I did not really like that much. People did not really use these straws more than regular straws.

I bought these straws for an event where we would be serving margaritas. Based on the photo I was surprised to see the hats laying flat in the package but luckily I had the time to unfold them. However, even unfolded they did not look anything like sombreros, more like some strange flower. Worse, the tabs that were supposed to hold the hats closed didn't hold. They were very flimsy and most of them just ripped off. If they didn't rip, they still didn't hold the hat firmly closed. None of the hats on the straws stayed unfolded and I wound up throwing them all away. What a disappointment.

Didn't hold up even before we started using them. Totally fell apart!

Difficult to keep together
Cute Idea, but not good quality. I didn't bother using them as I would have needed to glue or tape together.

These were cute. We cut them down to fit our glasses. You have to remember that they're just paper and they are used for effect. Cute item, good price.
