My Class Loved Them!
We are currently in a superhero theme supporting our series, Amazing Faith. As a game I scattered paper plates on the floor, using a marker wrote a point value on each plate, and stood the kids behind a line not very far from the plates. We all had a blast reviewing our lesson and tossing the superheroes to score points! (When they landed the plastic piece on the end would fly off and some of the wings would turn sideways but we just stuck them back on, straightened them out and kept right on playing!)

Really a great buy
Getting ready for a super hero birthday party and plan on using them for a throwing game . They were much bigger than I thought they would be which made it a very nice surprise.

They are cute but do not glide

This was popular with the kids. They don't fly very well, but the kids liked them.

two thirds defective
My first impression of these gliders was that they looked like something any boy would love--the superhero graphics are very well done and in bright colors. However, once I tried to assemble a few and check them out, I saw these three problems: On the first plane I tried to assemble, the plastic nose protector would not go on and simply crumpled the nose of the plane--so that plane did not fly. On plane #2, the small tail wing was way too loose--tilt the plane before tossing and the tail would fall off. If it stayed on through the flight, it came off upon landing. Plane #3 assembled and worked great. On all the planes, when pushing out the perforated sections to insert wings, some of the paper coating easily peeled off, leaving white Styrofoam showing. I am not sure I will keep these since it looks like 2/3 of the boys that get them may have problems with them.

We bought these gliders for my daughter's superhero-themed, 5th birthday party. The gliders were colorful and well designed (no deformed or broken pieces).

Kids loved them
Bought htese as a favor at my 4 year old's birthday party. The kids b/w ages 4-6 really enjoyed them once they were put together. All of them very into super heros right now. Good buy, feel I got my money's worth.

Cute, cute, cute
These gliders glider like one should. It's also very cute being a super hero. I found the tail keeps coming loose, but I still love that they glide well.

Had to send all back, they were moldy (after 2 tries)

Just like the foam airplanes; nice theme twist
They assemble just like the airplane ones--slide in the back wing and "cape" wing, add the little plastic in front to the fist. Sure the pieces need constant adjustment after they crash land, but this type of toy always does. Used them for goodie bags for my son's superhero bday party.
