Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeanJeepin Good value for price - BUT - advertising on every one
We purchased these for valentines (taped them to "you spin me right 'round" cards!) and they're perfect for the occasion. We anticipated they'd be small, and they all work well. The one major disappointment in them is they each came printed with an advertisement for Oriental trading - white printing on the black sticks that says "orientaltrading.com Y1997 0515". This easily scraped off with a fingernail but it was annoying to either have to scrape it all off or give them away with the ad on them. I didn't see anywhere in the listing that says this, or in the photo, or in other reviews.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Merrrymaids Small but good for what I needed them for
I am a volunteer in an ER. I bought these to hand out to the kids. They were pretty tiny but the kids don't seem to care. Great price as well. Will get these again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by neandertalis Good fun trinket for the price.
Handed these out at our event, children enjoyed, gave them something to fiddle with while parents occupied. Colorful and fun. Out of 12 dozen, all but two or three spun perfectly.

Not the colors I wanted, but perfect size & price for what I need. They work very well and spin easily even by blowing on them!

For the cost these are great little pinwheels for children. I do wish that the pinwheel itself was a tiny bit larger, the band seems to overpower the pinwheel.

We give post op kids and kids with respiratory problems a pinwheel or other blow toy to expand their lungs and promote better oxygenation to the lungs. The small size is perfect and they work as well as a larger one.

I picked these up for gift bags for my daughters birthday. Now, the are reallr small.... like 7- 8 inches long and the fan is a little smaller than the palm of my hand. But for smaller children that is a good thing. The colors are nice but the come collapsed for the blades of the fan are nestted (so instead of 8 fan points you really only have 4) and you can not get them to really open up (I tried for over an hour and gave up). They still work fir the nost part. I would say about 1 in 5 needs some help (plastic has not been cleaned of the extra bits, so some of them stick). Wirh a llttle efforn and goos small sissors, you can fix them. For the price they are not too bad, bbut do not expect a fiull 2 tone effect. The matallic sparkles really nicely, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrinketQueen a flashy "old reliable" for the prize box!
Given as a prize at my medical office for good behavior, the little ones clutch this in their chubby paws! its flashy and metallic, and the mini size makes it fit perfectly in the bin with other small toys. small kids have a remarkably hard time blowing hard enough (or is it the coordination of aiming the air and turning the pinwheel sideways) to make it spin..but they love it anyways. and the fact that they come in two similar colors is great when there are siblings who each need to get one, but later they will need to be able to tell them apart! As a mother and a medical provider who needs kids occupied while I take care of their mothers, it is a good choice!
