So much Fun!
The kids at our family reunion LOVED these. Simple to assemble. Easy to teach them how to take flight! Watch the arrows and spin them that way. We had some go 30-40 feet in the air, and up to 100 feet. This one was a BIG hit, and for little money too! The age range was 4 yrs. to 12 yrs.

My 10 year old son picked these out as a party favor for the Valentine's day party at school. He was insistent that we not have something too girly. Dad loves these too. He and my son come up with different challenges and games they can do with the dragon fly. Also, well made and easy to assemble.

The kids at school loved these easy to fly toys! I got them for kindergarteners but our 5th grade buddies wanted one too! Other students in the school also asked me if I had any extras. Everyone liked and wanted one!

SIMPLE FUN PRODUCT
My child loves this product. It is simple but fun. Other children playing nearby are also fascinated with this toy.

I used these for a demonstration on various principles of flight and they exceeded my expectations. I picked up a few extra to have on hand for my own kids on rainy days or picnics et al. They fly beautifully (if you do it properly) and the variety of color combinations helps kids keep track of whose is whose. I finally found a reason to like my ridiculously high ceilings :)

Great for 11.5 years
I've been been buying these since 2003 and keep buying them again as kids age out of my service program and new ones join us.
These toys are both fun and good coordination training. Slow launches don't go as high but that may prevent them getting caught in the trees. Safe to play with in the house (at least most houses!).
The only downside to the toy is age-related: pre-school kids sometimes hold them in such a way -- blades tilted towards the face -- that they get hit in the face when they launch them, if they can launch them. Working with them may solve these problems. Although totally inappropriate for toddlers to try to launch, babies and toddlers LOVE to watch them fly.

HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR THESE AND THEY ARE GOOD.
I HAD A LOT OF FUN SHOWING HOW THESE WERE TO WORK. SOME OF THE YOUTH HAD A ROUGH TIME JUST DOING THEIR HANDS. SOME WANTED TO THROW THEM UP AS THEY SLID THEIR HANDS. THAT USUALLY DID NOT WORK AS WELL AS IT SHOULD. SOME OF THE THINGS HAD THE WINGS BENT SO THEY DID NOT FLY AS WELL AS OTHERS.

Great give a way item.
Used these items to give to kids at the Winston-Salem Air Show. Not sure who had more fun the kids or the adults. Easy to assemble and fly. Some of the sticks would get loose, but just turn them around and use other end. Best money I have spent for a 1,000 items.

Fun toy without batteries
These are fun. They are brightly colored and easy to learn to operate. My five year old and his friends had fun learning how to make them fly. They are pretty sturdy too, can handle a lot of bumps in the wall. They may sting a bit when they hit you.
