I bought these for my classroom for some sensory integration (heavy work) for some of my austistic students. I haven't had the chance to use them with the kids yet, but I have to admit, I tried them out myself and they brought back fun memories from my own childhood! :)

Great to work on balance
I bought these for my class and they love them. They help the children work on balance and coordination. I ordered a second set because whenever I brought them out 3 sets just wasn't enough. They are very durable.

I read the reviews and the ones about the strings are spot on. They are even too short for my 2 yr old. Good thing I knew to have string on hand before the party! They are sturdy enough for the kids.

strings too short
These would have earned a much higher rating if the strings were long enough

Strings too short
These looked like a lot of fun so I purchased them, but when they came the strings were way too short. I had to untie them and restring them through just 2 holes (one on each side). The kids are enjoying them the way they are but I just needed you to know about the strings.

Cute monster feet for preschool set...
We used these at my daughter's 5th birthday party, which had a "monster" theme. They are adorable and you can't beat the price, but the rope handles were way way too short for my kid to use. She's average height for her age I think -- she's 45" tall at 5 years. So I bought some thin nylon rope and replaced the handles that came with this (easy to do it's just a thin string tied off to make a looped handle) with slightly longer handles and then they worked great. Super fun for all the kids.

Cute, but Tiny
6" applies to the over all with the toes and everything, not the top part where one would stand. I wouldn't let my kid stand on them, and she only weighs 90lbs... Two of the stompers came cracked. I could see maybe very small kids using them. maybe they'll make nice molds for monster puppets... i would have sent them back, but waited too long with the box closed. was saving it for a later party.

My kids (3 & 4) are getting the hang of these after about a week of practice. They are really enjoying stomping around the house.
