Transparent Mini Fans
Anyone who rated this a bad purchase is just not doing it right. I purchased 24, had no problem with loading batteries. If fan doesn't produce air, bend the blades foward and hold for 2 seconds!

poorly made, breaks easily
Some of the mini fans arrived broken from shipment. After getting a replacement shipped (and required to return all of first shipment), still a lot of the fans were broken. Now getting another shipment without having to send back the ones that are good. Don't waste your time buying these.

not well made/delicate
I purchased these for a favor for my daughters 9th birthday party. Out of the 12, 8 were broken inside their boxes. The 4 that were still in one piece were very difficult to put batteries in without the entire fan falling apart. The batteries are also under pressure when the battery cover is put back on, and it doesn't close securely so it feels like at any moment the batteries are going to come popping out. I did receive a new set free, but many of those were damaged also. I think this is just one toy that is really not made well.

I purchased these to put in gift bags for the older kids at our company picnic. I opened each one, to put the batteries in before placing them in the gift. So glad I did! More than half of these arrived in pieces. I did not send them back because it was really not worth the time/$$

Got tons of things for my daughter's birthday party. Everything came fine out of the box, but those fans that I was hoping to give as a favor. Even before opening the package we could hear the pieces shaking inside each box. I first thought they would need to assemble. Nope, 18 out 24 were broken or not functioning. Sent them back right away and was really happy with the assistance I got from the live chat at the website.

BEST MINI FAN!
My medical doctor gave me this after a laser treatment on my face to use on my way home because of the burning effect from the treatment. It is so powerful!! I think it's because this one has the thinner blades than the others. It has a space to put a cute cord on the bottom. It's more powerful than my heavy 3" x 8" Travelon personal fan. Our family will love these when we go to Universal Studios in a few months!! So happy to find them here at such a good price! If they're good enough for my doctor, they're good enough for me!!

Good price, but half of the fans were broken apart upon opening the box.Also, the ones that do work are very,very loud.

WHAT HAPPENED? Great yrs ago, NOT so great now
We bought these same fans around 10 years ago, again 5 years ago, & just a few weeks ago. Back then they ALL worked & we had NO problems, but the ones we just bought will have to go back, at least half of them. A few of them were damaged ie broken pieces that can't be fixed, & a few of them that do not work even when we put in brand new batteries. They are AWESOME if you get ones that work. THAT I can promise. They are AMAZING little gadgets to have on hand in the sun, I'm just disappointed in how many don't work this time. I'd still recommend them.

it was ok
Thank goodness I wanted to test them early enough and realized that out of the dozen only 8 worked. So its an iffy bet your making, so just make sure you order them early enough to get new ones.
