Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Penguin3311 Fun for a mermaid themed party
I foolishly did not open this in advance of the party, it would have been much better to have punched out all the pieces prior to the kids arriving. Pieces are small and hard to get out, but the craft is very cute and easy to do, with many variations (my daughter didn't want hers to have hair, for example) Very cute, I would buy them again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ScissorSore NOT 24 individual kits
We bought these for a mermaid themed bday party. Unlike other Oriental Trading ornaments we have ordered, these did not arrive as 24 ready to make kits. Rather, there were sheets of tails, sheets of stars, sheets of hair, etc. We had to cut out all of the necessary pieces and bag them up for the gift bags. And, there was only one instruction sheet. Luckily, our home printer can also make copies, so we were able to print out more to include with each set. Once made, they are very cute, but unless you have a lot of time on your hands, don't order these to distribute to a number of children.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by laddyoop Kids love making and playing with them
My kids (girls & boy) got to make these mermaids at the Omaha Symphony this weekend (thanks OTC for being a sponsor!). They had fun making them and really like the completed mermaids so much, I came to order more. There are lots of options for the shells, hair, tails and accessories. Was really happy to see the mermaids came in chocolate and vanilla colors too. My 9 year old has created a game with them (names, personalities, powers, etc.) I don't really get the game, but my kids are playing a lot with them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnneinNC Just adorable!
These mermaid ornaments are so cute! There is a nice assortment of pieces so you can really vary each one. They are easy to assemble and the adhesive seems strong. We are going to use them to tag the goodie bags at my daughter's mermaid party. My only complaint is that the foam really reeks -- hopefully the smell will dissipate now that they are out of the bag. I also thought the price seemed a bit high, but you do get a set of 24, so the cost per ornament isn't too bad.
