Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EOCI Would not purchase again
Most of them would not spin, took lots of work from the staff at the Easter Egg hunt to fix them to get them to spin.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheRef Doesn't spin as easy as it could.
While they added to the fun of the event, the pinwheels didn't spin like I had hoped. The kids really had to forcefully breathe at a certain angle in order to the get the pinwheels to spin. I feel that because they are smaller than traditional pinwheels, potentially the layers of material in a smaller space are preventing the spin of the pinwheel at its full potential.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SnowboardPatrol Always A Favorite!
Our ski patrol hands these out every year at the end of season carnival and the kids (and adults!) LOVE them because they attach the pinwheels to their helmets so they spin as they are skiing/snowboarding down the hills.

I bought these pinwheels for children to take to or home from the beach since I live on a beach block. While the colors are very nice, what good is a pinwheel if it doesn't spin. We get a good breeze, kids blow on them and they still don't spin. They are also smaller than I anticipated.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by vipcoordinator Very disappointed in this product this year.
This is at least the 4th year I have ordered hundreds of pinwheels to use in our agency's Child Abuse Prevention Month awareness display. They have usually been fairly reliable surrounding our building outside for the month. However, the tops of the pinwheels did not fit securely on the straw, the straws broke easily and the pinwheel itself did not hold up. In the past I have been able to use a majority of the pinwheels for another year, but this year I am just hoping a good number will last the month.

This is the second year I have purchased the pinwheels. They come packaged so well and are easy to assemble. I am using these in little Easter bags. I put them together and they extend out the top of the bag and I put a little bow around the top of the bag.
I find the quality to be great and the price is reasonable for the amount that you can get.
It is a perfect gift for the children at a Food pantry. The parents are always happy to have this bag of goodies all purchased from Oriental Trading.

by marnie3 Great item!
I put 380 of these unassembled in one side of a suitcase and took them to Haiti for a VBS program. They arrived in perfect condition. All the sticks went on and stayed on. What an awesome prize for the kids who have never had a pin wheel. Perfect size and very well made. I will be getting them again for next year!

We used these to dedicate our church's community gardens on Pentecost Sunday. I arranged them like flowers in the Narthex (5 to each of 8 bud vases and the rest in a large vase in the center of the table). At the end of the service we took them outside and placed them in the garden beds where a gentle breeze made them spin. Very festive! It rained hard later in the day and they were still standing and spinning the next day. We just put a dab of glue on the stem of each one before attaching the pinwheel head to prevent the heads from blowing off the stems.

I bought these smaller pinwheels for my garden to deter squirrels. They are afraid of the shiny metallic material and stay out of the garden. Last year, they ate my strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes and more! Some neighbors feed the squirrels and they are all around. This is a humane way to keep them away. I stick them right in the dirt of the garden and all along my fence.

came in good shape. Although, I didn't notice until it arrived that it had a flower cutout in the center of the pinwheel. Was planning to use this for a unisex party favor. Otherwise, cute, spins, affordable.
