I bought these for our church picnic as prizes for the kids. We play a game where the kids throw them through a suspended hula hoop. Last year we had more traditional gliders. These were less expensive & had the religious message so I ordered them.
The nose clip was almost impossible to apply. Last year, with our other gliders we pre-assembled the gliders and let the kids take that one with them. This year, we gave up and only assembled 5-10 & let the kids take home unassembled gliders as their prize. Even the ones we assembled we were only able to get the nose clip on about 1/3 of the way. They did fly fine that way.

Cute, but not very functional
These planes were as described on the website, good colors, good message. We bought them to hand out at VBS. However, we were disappointed. The planes were not very aerodynamic, and did not glide very well. This may have been due to the heavy type of foam they were made of, or to the fact that it was nearly impossible to attach the plastic nose clips, which were too narrow for the foam used on the planes. When trying to attach the clips, the foam would just bend away rather than sliding in, and we were not able to find any way to avoid this or attach the clips properly.
