Haven't seen them for years
We have had a ton of fun with these. I remember them from when I was a child and they are just as much fun now as they were then.

GO SWIM FISH
WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THIS ITEM. A BIT ON THE CHEAP SIDE BUT MAYBE THE ADULTS WILL HAVE SOME FUN WITH IT. I AM DOUBTFUL.

Just OK, I've seen ones that work better
Believe it or not I've seen ones that the same fish has changed positions on different peoples hands. These fish all seemed to do the same curl up motion on everyone! It was still fun for the kids at first then they even noticed that the fish were not "doing" any other motions...

Bought as an alternative handout to Candy this year, Perhaps it's my memory that is failing me, but I thought I remembered these to be much better quality in years past... Either way, still an interesting hand out rather than candy and I got it in the mail not long after ordering so I'm happy. :)

Fun and excellent value for the money
Enjoyed the trip back to childhood with this product. Handing out on Halloween as a treat alternate to candy. Great value for ...

Classic novelty, adult wording, smaller than expected
I bought these classic novelties for the holidays, but due to the more adult nature of the words in the 'instructions' i was not able to use them. I've shelved them to use for V-day but will have to print out sticker labels to change the instructions to a more kid friendly set of fortunes. They are smaller and thinner than the standard. That is a "plus" for the environmental factor... if we want to get creative with the silver lining stuff. They'd be FINE AS IS for an adult V-day party, but deff not the correct message for kids.

Not what I thought it would be
In theory, these sound great, I thought they would come with positive messages in the way of "fortunes", instead they have one word that it could be and most of them were very negative, such as "jealous".
I will not buy them again.

Fun but for adults
This was an interesting buy based on curiosity and price. It is paper thin and would be more appropriate for adults. We packaged them for a carnival but had to place with another toy.

What cheap fun!!
I bought these for a 5th grade halloween party, as an inexpensive favor, and I was surprised how much fun kids have with it! I had not seen them before, and it is amazing how they move in your hand. The fortunes are a little negative or old fashioned/victorian or mature for children, like jealousy, indifference, fickle, false., but that does not ruin the fun they have with them. They would easily slip into school valentines, and I will do that with the left-overs.

I was hoping for more fun.
Based on the other reviews I hoped these would be more fun. They were kind of lame. None of the kids or the adults really seemed to like them. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I think these are kind of a rip off. 95% of them curled all the way up, so there wasn't even any mystery to them.
