Lightweight bats for my Japanese maple
These little bats are lightweight and seem to be weatherproof enough to handle the outdoors the week before Hallowe'en. They are perfect for hanging in our Japanese maple - a tree which cannot take anything with weight hanging on its breanches - and exactly the size I was looking for to decorate it!

I have been buying these for several years and now have enough to cover the deck. Use scissors and trim the ears, Spray flat black paint over the poor paint job and you have a better than average looking bat. I hang them upside down, like you would find in a cave and light them with small LED lights and play a soundtrack for bats. Since they are outside they sway and look even more realistic. Good value. Best product out there for the price.

We hung them from our ceiling fan at our kids' halloween/birthday party. Worked great!

Disappointed in quality
I wouldn't say they're "fabric" -- more like a durable paper-like material because one of my bat's wings tore off in the wind (and cannot be repaired).
For the quality, the price should be much lower... the mouth is a painted on smile, the eyes are two little red beads, and you have to gently stretch the wings once out of the package -- they look nothing like the photo. And I'm not sure why there's white splotches of paint splattered on the top of them -- I don't think "real" bats have polka dots!

These "paper like" bats look nothing like the picture. There were paint splotches on them and the faces were painted on with what looks like nail enamel. Not worth the price!

Not even worth $8
One of mine didn't even have a hanger. Not that it fell off, it was never attached. Very low quality, even for $8.

As the other posters have already stated, these are very hastily put together. the quality is terrible, there are white spots all over the back of them... I would not recomend these.

I agree that they do seem a bit hastily put together. Mine had the weird white splotches on the backs too, almost looks like bird excrement and one of the bats smile was painted in all smeared. Other than that they hung fine for me (I used extra string)and the flaws aren't so noticeable from a distance. They are a bit delicate so I'm worried about how well they'll hold up on the front porch with wind and rain.

I had the same problem the other reviewer had; there are white splotches all over these! They almost look like bleach stains. Not to mention the faces are poorly painted on. I would cost too much to return them, and I just hope using a sharpie on them will help, but this was a real bummer!
