I have purchased these fans several times from Oriental Trading. Because I have severe hot flashes all the time, I keep a couple in my purse at all times. They are lighter than battery operated fans and a whole lot more compact.
This time when I ordered, I was a little concerned because there had been recent reviews indicating that the fans pulled apart. Unfortunately, I found the same thing with this order. In the past, MAYBE one pulled away from the handle part, but this time I had to throw 4 of them away right out of the box. I suppose it's easy enough to glue them but honestly, I don't have the time or patience to fuss with it when they're this cheap.
My recommendation is they are very cute, they are somewhat sustainable for normal use (one usually lasts me a couple months) but if you're planning on having a certain number for a party, etc., order more just in case some aren't usable.

Safari Print Folding Fans
When I ordered this item I expected an equal amount of each print but got more than the other. Material was a bit cheap being that when I opened most of them up they where torn up and couldn't use for my party.

Okay for the price
These are okay for the price. It should state in the detail that they are printed only on one side. Had to order additional fans to complete the design we are using so the white backside did not show.

poor quality, useless
Several in the package were broken when they arrived, they were not even glued well. The majority in the package fell apart or were ruined within moments of use. The kids at the party were very disappointed.

I intend to give these out to all the moms at my sons birthday party. It will be at the park, in May, so incase the weather is not in our favor they'll be happy to stay longer! For that purpose they are perfect! They might not last longer than that but for the price they will work as intended!

Fans to fragile!
The fans look great, but break and rip very, very easily. I handed them out to elementary school kids and within minutes several were ripped and torn..2 broke just when I opened them up out of the box!

These were very useful. My guests were kept cool in our outdoors event,and they were theme related to our Quinceanera! They were very inexpensive so I didn't have to break my budget,and the money could be spent elsewhere!

Loved them! Perfect for the girls.
Can't complain, cute and sweet. Small, larger ones would be nice...but overall great buy.

These fans are pretty but made of extremely fragile paper. They do look like their picture; however, they're printed only on one side! The description says 10" handle, but when the fan's opened up, the handle is only 5", which is not at all long enough to stick down into any kind of support to make the lovely centerpieces shown in the project picture. The best support is from wet sand in votive holders, as shown. I bought these to make centerpieces, 3 per table for a dance & spent a LOT of money for the other materials to complete the project.
