"The flag measures around 9"x6" and the "straw" (and it literally is a straw) measures around 14-1/2" tall. So it is too big to put as a decoration in the food and too small and flimsy to stick in the ground as a decoration. (its similar to a straw from a fast food joint). You get what you pay for..... The toddlers waved them around for about 30 seconds."
