These are not the ones they released for the Hulk movie a few years ago. They don't make any sound, and the foam is quite easy to tear. When the 4 year-old boy I bought these for was sent to his room, he actually CHEWED through them in anger. To the toy's credit, though, they did not then dissolve into a million little pieces. I know it's hard to reach the balance between sturdy and won't hurt people when you smack them with it (because the first thing a kid will do with these is punch you in the stomach, trust me) but I think they could have made the outside a little less easy to puncture.
Other than that, though, they are pretty cool.
