No tails, no flight
These kites do t come with a tail, so they don't fly well at all. In a pinch, you can attach the plastic tube they came in to the bottom of the kite, but it looks kind of goofy.

a kite? are you kidding me?
Don't buy these if you want a kite that doesn't break and actually flies. Forget it...You get what you pay for, cheap!!!

70's theme party decor
We attached these to very tall shrubbery to make it look as though they were flying in the air. Very fun, bright and large ambiance item.

Not for flying
Although Oriental Trading Company stands by all their products, I will not be purchasing any of the kites. These kites didn't come with directions and they seem to be made upside down. I knew there were no tales, as stated in the order book, however they would not fly because they were all upside down. The company did send me a certificate for a future order and asked me to donate the kites to a charity. The kites would be nice if you only wanted them for decorations, but not for flying. A big THANK YOU to Oriental Trading for satisfying this customer, no matter what the issue!

First of all it comes with no instructions! Colours are great. Biggest problem of all it cannot fly? What a dissapointment...

a little disappointed --
These items were purchased to entertain young kids, ages 4 - 10, at a family reunion. Although the kites were easy to assemble, and the colors brilliant -- there were no 58" tails in the packaging. It was a little disappointing to have to tell a young child that he had to wait while I looked for something suitable to use as a tail.
