Fun throw away toy
Purchased these for a fun time at work. I call them throw away toys because they are good for a little fun before they break. If you want something that last try something more expensive like a sling shot. Yes some break quickly so order extra, but be prepared for a fun time. We played all day before we broke the last one--it was a full on rocket fight!

My husband first bought these for my 50th birthday party and they were so much fun. I then bought them for BBBS holiday party last year and the quality was very poor on the christmas ones. I ordered them again for an adult party and they worked very well. They are not meant to last forever, but they are a hoot for awhile!!

these won't stay in one piece long, they are not real sturdy but the kids will have lots of laughs at least for one day!

Don't Waste Your Money
These were a huge disappointment. The fell apart the first time kids tried to fly them.

Rocket Flyers a disappointment
These have been a hot item before in our Awana store but this particular batch did not seem as well made. At .62 cents apiece I expected more. They did not go very far and were a bit difficult to shoot in general. The only item from our large order that we were less than pleased with.

The white rubber parts came out on approximately 40-50% of the rockets. They were not glued in well. We had to return them all, and we ordered over 250 of them. I would not recommend buying them.
Overall, Orientaltrading.com was good with the return of the products; however, we had to pay return shipping.

I was very disappointed with this item. Half of them were broken upon opening the bag and the other half broke with a use or two.

Not for adults
You must have tiny child sized fingers to fly these.

These were purchased for a back yard carnival prize. They were cheaply made and did not hold up well. The white plastic loop that is made (I guess) for a child's finger did not fit them well and rocket would not hold up to being pulled back to launch. I did not see one child successfully fly one. Big dissapointment.

A little disappointed
Got these for my son's 5th birthday party and the kids got frustrated really quickly. Sounds easier to do than it is in reality. Half of the flyers in my bag had a soft plastic finger loop that was elastic-like; those were the flyers that could fly. The other half had stiff, immovable plastic and nobody, not even my husband, could fly them.
If you like unpredictability, go ahead and order these. If you need a dependable product, choose something else.
