Pros:Inexpensive, easy to throw or give away. Somewhat pliable.
Cons:Vinyl smell is powerful, shoddily painted, easy to lose.
The Bottom Line: These toys were great for a martial arts themed party where the children were able to play.
When my daughter had her last birthday party, she wanted a martial arts themed party. She's been involved in karate since she was 4 years old and really enjoys it tremendously (most days). She was having her party at the dojo and invited her friends. Trying to locate little items for her to use for little party favors for 25 kids was a challenge. Until, Oriental Trading Company and all of their many dozens of ninja warriors caught me eye.

When you order this group of warriors, you will get 48 little ninjas. They are little too! These little guys only measure 1 1/2 and are made out of vinyl. Opening the package, I was overwhelmed how stinky these things were. Have you ever opened something new, like a vinyl shower curtain, and been suffocated by the vinyl smell in your bathroom for the next couple of weeks? These little guys were almost as bad as the shower curtain.
The little ninja warriors come in the following colors:
Blue, orange, red, yellow, green and purple
These colors may vary somewhat, and you might get 4 of these colors. We were pretty lucky and we received all of them.
The ninja warriors have different weapons, like knives or swords or a hachet style weapon and daggers or a 3 section "nunchuck". These little ninja warriors are not extremely pliable, but there is a little bit of give in the characters. So, if you have one with a little dagger and you try to bend the dagger back a little, you can move it somewhat. So, if you step on it, it does have a little give, but not much and it will still hurt your foot.
While I enjoy having the little ones party picking out items, it still always amazes me when I buy something from Oriental Trading Company. Mind you, I know what to expect when you are buying 48 items for $10 or under! But, I was surprised by these as their little paint jobs for the silver of the weapons and the color for the belts was so shoddily put on, it was sad. But, for 5-6 year old children, I felt it was an ok purchase...something they would play with or pitch and it did not cost an arm and a leg for all of them. (There were other things in there too, but I am only reviewing this.)
The toys give my daughter a little bit of fun. She likes to bounce a few of them around for about 10 minutes and then bores of them. They then get lost when they are tossed in the toy box because they are so small. These little warriors will fit and find the smallest possible holes and fall through them!
But, to give my baby the party that she wanted and to carry on the theme, these worked great. If you have someone looking or wanting to have a themed party with martial arts or ninjas, check them out!
~Thanks for spending time with me today!~
