Swords with Eyepatch
These swords were a great addition to my son's pirate b-day party!!! The kids loved them and had a lot of fun playing with them!!! They did not break at all and were wonderful!!! We loved them!!!

Eye Patches are useless- the string is WAY too short !!! Swords are great though.
I own a pirate themed business and buy hundreds of these each year. In 2013, and in the spring of 2014 - these sword / eye patch combos were PERFECT!!!!! This past May, I found this product on another website for a lower price and ordered through them. It was a waste because their eye patches were too small and wouldn't fit on an infant. I regretted ordering from a business other than Oriental Trading, so I placed an order for 840 sword/patch combos in June, and sadly, the product was the exact same as the other website... Wonderful swords, with useless tiny tiny eye patches.
My guess is that they switched factories in China, and may not be aware that the length of the eye patch strings are WAY shorter now.
I had to place a separate order of eye patches to accommodate the angry moms that complained about worthless eye patches.
PLEASE - I want to keep ordering this product, but you have to switch back to whichever vendor you used in 2013!!

The first sword we took out of the package broke in less than 2 minutes of using. They eye patches were too small to fit over a 2 year old's head. Unusable product!

Wasn't worth the price!
The eye patch was way to small to fit around any of the kids. The kids were between 2 & 6 and they had no interest in them.

Forget the patches
I was going to purchase swords and patches separately when I came across this combo. We purchased these for my grandson's "pirate" birthday themed party. The party was for 3,4, & 5 year olds. The swords were a hit, but the patches wouldn't fit any of the children even the little 3 year olds. If you don't want the kid's disappointed that they can't wear the patch, don't purchase these. :(

Eyepatches not usable
Bought these for my two boys' pirate/ninja party. I was excited about the swords, but even happier about the patches being available. However, once the partygoers - ages 7 and under - tried to put the patches on, the strings were too short and caused many of the kids to not be able to wear the patch. The one child who was able to get it around his head took it off after a few minutes because it was too tight and cutting off circulation/discoloring his skin. The swords were fine, but the patches were worthless.

Bought these swords for my son's birthday party, it was a jake and neverland theme and this was the touch to give the kids a favor and to have fun... Really like them and the different colors were great!

Good pirate party favor
Got the swords as a pirate party favor. Didn't hand them out before they were leaving...didn't need a a bunch of kids hitting each other! My child has used it for a few days and it is still in one piece. I have been hit with it. It can definitely sting. They're cute though. And one can hardly be a pirate without a sword! The eye patches were mildly disappointing. The patch itself is a light plastic material and durable. It is fairly comfortable against the skin. The elastic band is very thin though, and not long enough to go over even a child's head. I had to cut the elastic on all of them and run string through the patch. Each person just tied it on. Overall, a decent buy. Having to re-string the eye patch is just a small inconvenience.

Just what I expected.
I used these in a pirate dance. They held up pretty well. The handles will break with rough use, but for my purposes, they were great and reasonably priced.
