first time i saw these i laughed out loud, but soon was won over by the sheer usefulness of these brushes. these are much better than the type with the plastic handle.
also if you're a tight-wad like me the handles work fine for dowels in other projects.
these work very good for a number of things and i find myself applying varnish with them more often than not.

I bought these for craft work and they are perfect for that. They clean with water and soap and if they are not abused can be used over and over.

Goes wonderful with the mod podge products.we use them to paint with and they are good for the small ones to "help" Nana paint outside projects. Hand for so much and clean easily.

There are 3 grades of foam brushes with these being the low end . Great service but cheap brushes. Pay a couple of bucks more and get what you need.

The price is right on these brushes, but the wooden handle pokes through the foam within about 10 minutes of use, so I go through them pretty quickly. That scrapes the surface of whatever I'm painting. Still, a great price.

These started breaking after two uses and washes. They were very cheap, and met my needs for a 60 person art workshop.

I'd recommend for brief use.

I would not recommend for stocking up art supplies that need to last for a while.

I needed some basic foam brushes for two projects. The first one was to put six coats of Mod Podge affixing a drawer liner (actually wrapping paper to act like a drawer liner) to the bottom of five drawers. To do this, I gave it about 20 minutes between coats and ended up having to use four brushes total because the handles would get loose and start breaking free during the brushing process. Besides how many I had to use, they worked extremely well for the project and I am happy to have so many left over for other future projects as well. I will next be using them to spot-touch with paint some nicks on my walls. I have no doubt they will do absolutely perfectly for the job.

I would definitely recommend these but keep in mind that there is a reason so many of them come in a pack! They get worn out way too easily!

These are fantastic for when you are doing small craft projects that don't require very expensive brushes or materials. This is a great price for 25 brushes! You don't have to reuse these, but I find they are easy to reuse if you wash them properly. So far, I've used these with mod podge glue, and acrylic paints of many different colors. I love the long handle for easy handling and they do not easily rip off of the handle. They stay very put even after several uses. I have more than enough for many craft projects to come and I will not need to buy any more any time soon except if it's as a gift for a friend. Overall, I love this product and it's a great bargain! I give this 5 out of 5 stars.

I've been using these around the house to fix the trim and some nicks on the walls. They're foam paint brushes and I considered them pretty much disposable, which makes them great for staining and small paint projects (and is there anything worse than trying to wash a paint brush in your kitchen sink?). These can be washed if you want too.

The biggest benefit is how cheap these are. $6 for 25 brushes is a steal when just one of them costs $1 at hardware stores near me.

Are these brushes life changing? Nope. Do they apply paint cheaply? Yep. What more could you want?

I use my foam brushes to apply Modge Podge to large surfaces. They work great for this purpose. I usually rinse them off and reuse them a few times, but then I toss them. If I get lazy and do not wash them right away I can throw it out without feeling guilty because I know I have a lot more, and that they were so inexpensive! I would recommend these for use with Modge Podge or for other crafting such as painting large items, glazing, or for children to paint with.
