The Luck of the Irish to Ye! Fine product, excellent value
on February 26, 2014
These head boppers are well designed, well constructed, and an excellent value
--the bobbles are 5 1/2 inches long, long enough to be easily visible without feeling as if you're wearing the Eiffel Tower
--about 3 l/2 inches are springs, strongly attached externally to small prongs molded externally on the band so nothing to hurt your head.
--springs have a lively bobble action and are stiff enough not to flop over
--the shamrocks are about 2 inches tall
--the shamrocks are three dimensional, not flat cut out of cardboard, but molded from a light plastic. Very nice appearance.
--the color is a perfect shamrock green neither too dark nor too chartreuse
--these arrive individually packaged which makes for comfort re cleanliness. They are made in Zhejiang, China.
--sparkles are sprayed on with good coverage, no empty spots and the glitter adheres to the shamrocks---no green dandruff!
--the bands fit my head (average size) comfortably but expand for larger heads and looks as if they would fit smaller heads for pre-teens through seniors (I have not tested this---my estimate)
--best of all, there are small combs--not pokey---on top and both sides that hold the boppers in place during somewhat vigorous movements---like a jig or game of tag. (I HAVE tested this and these hold!)
Actually, the best for me is good value for the price: I paid about $1.00 each from Amazon.
OVERALL: It was the Luck of the Irish when I saw these on Amazon. I now have six head boppers for St. Patrick's Day all for a total of about $6! Why wait to wear 'em? Perhaps best served with Guiness, Corned Beef, Colcannon, and a celebration of Ireland in your heart.
