A big hit!
We got these along with the safari hats for our son's 1st birthday. We had a hay ride with big painted animals in the woods they used them to look for the animals it was the cutiest thing ever!!! They dont work like the real thing but they are for kids and they dont mind.

Very poor quality
Bought these for a "murder mystery" themed party at my office. They fall apart VERY easily and do not actually magnify anything you look at. I give them a second star only because the shimmering colors are cute.

Purchased these to use with my Wednesday night childrens class to help them remember books of the Bible. Everyone broke and some were missing parts. Very disappointed for the childrens sake.

made great christmas for the children, boy or girls
I bought these for Christmas for neices and nephews and they were a hit. Parents apprectated them because they didn't have a lot of parts and were easily kept track of. All the children wanted them hung around their neck for the rest of the day. They also kept the children entertained on their rides home. Awesome!!

looked good and worked- but fell apart
The kids loved the binoculars- and they really worked, so you could see things close-up; however they were very poorly made and at least 1 in 3 fell apart (the black lens section detached) during the 2 hours of the birthday party. If I'd been prepared with superglue we could have fixed them on the spot.

DO NOT BUY THESE
Six of the twelve pairs of binoculars were broken! There were finger prints etched into the plastic lenses. They are a waste of money.

I purchased dozens of these for a VBS personal prop. I was very dissatisfied. The very first package I opened literally fell apart in my hands.

We've been using these as bingo prizes for several years and they are a big hit! They're always a first pick!

Cute, but flimsy
I ordered these for my daughter's Dora-themed birthday, so the kids could find a far-away tree in the yard. Although cute (and a decent size, compared to many of the teeny-tiny items in the catalog), they were not worth the money. The nose-piece did not bend, and the lenses were set too far apart for the 5 year olds in attendance. Between that, and the fact that they were out of focus, they complained they couldn't see out of them.. Even worse - 4 of the 12 of them broke as we took them out of the packages.

Worked fine for the kids
We used these for a scavenger hunt at a kid's party- kids ages 4-7. Nearly all of the straps broke off. The lenses stayed intact for the duration of the 2 hour party, so that wasn't a problem. They feel cheap, and don't bend in the middle. The colors are not at all like the picture- much paler. The magnification is maybe 1.5x but the kids loved them because they "actually worked"
