All of the paper for these are stuck together, so after removing it from the package, you need to pull apart paper stuck together. The first one ripped so bad that it wouldn't inflate, threw it in the fire. Second one, stuck also, ripped in a a couple of places, took a LONG time to inflate, and once it did, it was very slow to rise, got stuck in a tree (this was done in a very open area by the way), sat in the tree, as we waited for a fire to start, then it let it self free, didn't rise, moved but not up. Finally it caught some wind and moved up and out.
Aside from the poor design that causes all of the paper to stick and rip when pulling apart (causing it to be unsafe to use), they are small. I've bought lanterns on three other occasions, never had a problem, they went up and out very fast, and were pretty much double the size of these.
Would not buy again or recommend.
