"These cups were a great addition to my son's 2nd birthday. However, I do have some suggestions. The picture shows the straw's bending part sticking out the top of the cup. If you position your straw like this, the part of the straw inside does not reach the bottom and kids aren't able to finish their drink. If you put the straw in upside down, it allows for all the liquid to be consumed and there is a little spout straw at the top for kids to easily drink from. Also these lids do not close all the way. They tighten to where liquid doesn't come out but if you turn the top passed the tighten place, it will reopen. It wasn't a huge problem but mom's just had to be aware on how to close the lids."
"These have little strings to hold the hat on the heads. You need the string because the hats don't fit snug on little heads but my son is 2 and all the kids at his party loved them. They don't last super long but i guess that depends the age of your kids. My sons hat was stepped on a couple times and you can pop it back but the sides will crack after time. We bought it just for a party themed fun guest gift so we were satisfied."
"The size makes it difficult for kids to put their whole heads in it. Maybe 3 year olds could do it but my two year old kept putting his hands in the whole and he had a hard time getting his whole head in just because the position of the whole makes it hard to bend and put your head in but as a whole, it's a great party display and again older kids might have an easier time. For the price, it was worth the purchase. Misty"
