OK everyone, let's start out with a reality check. Excluding shipping, these planes come in at a price of about 20-25 cents each. The bottom line is, you get what you pay for. If you want a great hobby-type plane for your kids, etc., then be prepared to shell out 4-7 dollars each.

That being said, I purchased these for my Cub Scout Den. We were working on flying, aerodynamics, and the four forces involved in flying (thrust/drag, lift/gravity). After the "lesson", I passed out the airplanes to the Scouts, had them assemble the planes, then had a contest to see who could fly furthest. The Scouts LOVED the activity, they actually learned something, and it cost me less than $8.00 (I bought 24 planes) in total.

If you want to be critical of these 25 cent planes, then I'm guessing nothing will make you happy.

We gave these planes out as in gift bags at my 6 year old's birthday party (24 kids in his class, so 2 packs worked out perfectly). The kids were excited to get them. The plane flies nearly as well as the old-school balsa-wood gliders, but is much cheaper. However, it is made out of foam, so it is fragile if stepped on, etc. My 6 year old had no problem putting it together himself.

One nice feature is that the control surfaces are perforated, so you can make the plane fly spirals, loops, etc, by bending the control surfaces as needed.

These little planes have pretty good detail for being made out of foam. They arrived grouped in 12 and rubberbanded. I was surprised they had plastic propellers. Each plane needs to be assembled and it comes in an actual paper envelope that has nice artwork of the real plane. Actually, the packaging is way better than the toy! All in all it is an excellent goodie bag filler and boys and girls at my son's party really liked them. I don't think they're very durable for smaller kids either. The planes wings can bend easily causing them to snap and break.

I bought a bunch of these for my son's 5th birthday party and they were a hit. Who cares if they break, just order extras! The kids really enjoyed them (and they weren't too hard to put together).

These are cute little glider planes, perfect for a favor at a children's party and well worth the less than $4 for a dozen.

Didn't expect much for the price, but did expect an assortment. The first six I opened are all the same, expecting the last six to also be the same. They are all a rather faded green (the photo actually enhances the color a bit!) and not nearly as colorful as the product photo.

I also expected them to fly better. The wing is asymmetrical and they were flexed/bent a bit during shipment due to a rubber band around one end of the bunch. With some tweaking, some fly okay, but my son is not (yet) an aeronautical engineer, so these will be a bit of a learning experience.

Three stars = It's okay - I suppose they are worth the 40 cents each...

These are very cute planes that I wanted to use for a project but they fell apart in my hands even before I could finish putting them together.
