"I thought these hats were so cute when I saw them online. I wasn't too bummed when I saw them in the box they arrived in - all flat in a pile - because I'd read in other reviews that I'd need to put them together myself. They're sort of difficult to put together, doing 24 drove me nuts. They end up being bent a little and sort of misshapen. Then there's the strings. They're WAY too small for an adult's head. They were really even a little tight on my one-year-old's head. But he hates hats. We ended up using some old yarn to tie them onto adults' heads (for those who were in the mood to look silly). They were fun to have, but it would have made no difference if I had bought solid-colored ones at a party store and found ones that were ALREADY ASSEMBLED. Actually, it WOULD have made a difference. The assembled ones would have made party-day a lot less frustrating."
