First of all, each tiny compass was individually wrapped in plastic, which was a time and material waster. Secondly, several were broken. I was only about to use about 75% of the product, which makes $10.00 pretty pricey. Will not order again.

Very Poor quality
These are very poor quality. I thought the needles would try to point to north, but they are plastic and do not move. The pictures show a metal needle and they are all pointing in the same direction....not so. Many of them had broken plastic needles on the inside.

I naively expected these to at least point north with a little prodding. I was wrong. These are absolutely useless. Now I have to scour the internet for something comparable in price that actually works. These shouldn't even be on the market. If they still had the liquid filled globe compass keychains I'd have bought them instead.

Compasses were broken
Most of the compasses in the package were broken. It doesn't matter if they actually worked or not, the pointers were broken off inside the plastic.

Got what I expected
Used these for a token for VBS. Used the compass as a reminder of the directions we should follow in life. Didn't need such a large bag of these. It would have been nicer if they would have decreased the qty. and increased the quality.

I knew by reading that these were toys so I wasn't expecting them to work. But they will be great for what I had planned for them. They will be used for a Cub Scout project.

I wouldn't suggest buying these
I bought these compasses for my son's pirate party to put in the kids favor bags. Majority of them were broken!! Either the needle was completely broken off or the paper inside was wrinkled (from possibly being wet) so they didn't spin. A lot of the compasses were cracked or completely broken in half. Some were even white (from being shattered) and you couldn't even see the needle. I was completely disappointed. I spent majority of my time going thru the bag trying to find any that actually worked. I wouldn't recommend buying these. Don't waste your money.

I bought these to give out to kids at elementary schools. Kids not all that enthusiastic, and many were broken,so I had to throw them away.
