I bought some 1/8" dowells and built a mobile with the six fish. Very cute! Can't wait to put it up for the party next month.

I bought these to go in my Ocean themed daycare room. I hung them from the ceiling and they are super cute.

The perfect deco item for any underwater,pirate,or ocean themed event. My son loved them at his spongebob birthday party.

Cute, colorful decoration accent
We used these for my step-daughter's graduation luau party. They were cute and colorful. my only complaint is that when you opened the tissue paper part (body) the sticky part didn't hold up and we had to tape them but otherwise worked well to carry off our theme. We can re-use them for future parties.

was very disappointed.
The fish looked great. Nice size, colorful, just what I wanted. The problem was that the body of the fish, which had to be held in place buy a glued strip, wasn't sticky enough. There were six fish to a pack and even the ones that stuck at first came unstuck later. I'm going to keep them, though. Some scotch tape or wood glue should do the trick but that's not the point.

first of all the items arrived in record time and due to their packaging in extremely good condition. the materials are beautifully printed and the colors very vibrant. the hanging loops were too short for my needs, but I easily changed them to longer monofilament line and they worked perfectly. hung them with crepe streamer "seaweed" and mirror chips on fishing line for a wonderful aquatic themed d¿¿cor-our crowd loved them. thank you oriental trading company! great offering.

cute, but not worth it
These were a lot smaller than I expected. They did not stay together and half of them couldn't even be used as when you opened them up, they tore.

A "tiny" bit disappointing
It clearly states the size but its not the tissue paper part itself that is 10" big so they look rather small in person. Several of them would not stay open so we had to use some tape and I didn't think they were really worth saving after the party. It was a nice addition to the under the sea theme but didn't feel like a great bang for the buck the way so many other OT products do. Would not buy again but if someone wanted to add to an underwater decor, it works.

Cute and can be used multiple times!
We used these along with many other Luau decorations for our island themed wedding reception. We hung them from the ceiling along with blue paper for an ocean effect. Best part about these peticular fishys is when we were cleaning up our event we were able to fold them flat again to store and we have used them 3 times since for other parties. They haven't ripped and still look great (which wasn't the case for all the other decor). Buy them! Be gentle and you can re-use them!
