Just what I was looking for!
I just wanted a little something bright and festive to cheer the atmosphere for a small adult party for my son. These were perfect! Enough to add a little cheer to the room, but not overwhelming or gaudy, just bright and cheerful.

A little patience, glue, and creativity needed.
I ordered three even though the reviews were bad for this product. When it arrived I knew what to expect. If you want something perfect out of the box and don't want to spend much time decorating, this is not for you. If you love to take your time getting the decorations set up and don't mind a little extra effort on your part, then the price makes this worth while. It really is very attractive once you get it put in place.

take a chance
We bought two of these garlands for my daughter's rainbow birthday party. The first one I opened up ripped in multiple places and was not glued in certain spots to fan out the colors correctly. We started taping in places, but there were too many places to tape, so we gave up. The second one we opened worked great and looked perfect. So, I guess if you need one, buy two just in case. Of course, then $4 for one garland might not be worth the money.

bright, but cheap
I bought this for my son's second birthday party. It has beautiful colors and would have been great, but it fell apart as soon as I stretched it out to hang it. I tried to fix with tape, but not good enough. If I had more time I would have glued it. At least I didnt pay that much for it!

I bought two of these for a child's rainbow-themed party. They didn't rip at all; a couple of places (I think 2 on each garland) were unglued, but it was easy to fix with a tiny piece of scotch tape, which was invisible to everyone. It was not as big a deal as some other reviewers said. And they were beautiful, adding a lot to the decorations! (One, strangely, had a yellow next to the purple at the end as in the photo; the other one had a full 3 repetitions of the rainbow from red to purple. Nobody but me noticed the difference.)

No sooner than I had taken this garlan dout to hang, in four different places the garland ripped where the one color is glued to the other. I had to use tons of tape to repair it and it didn't look very nice after that.

While pretty, these garland rip and tear when you try to open them. I was disappointed with the product, but Customer Service was wonderful in helping me resolve the issue.

The garland, though it looked good when we had it up, came apart in many places as the glue didn't stick. We were stapling it together constantly to get it to look decent. Very disappointing!
