"The material is a bit cheap, but overall the costume is nice and worth the extra cost (compared to cheaper clown costumes). The details on the costume are a nice touch. The hat was adorable and for the most part, we didn't have any trouble with it staying on her head. There is a single velcro closure, which could be better. I thought it was too big for her at first, and was going to exchange it for the toddler size, but I didn't have time and was afraid it would be too small. I got a 4/6x. She's a size 5 slim in regular clothes. If you're shopping for a size 4, I'd probably recommend the next size down. We got the white tights on this site (also recommend) and wore with red sequin shoes. Costume Express had a discount, so didn't pay full price and used Shoprunner for fast shipping. Very pleased."
"I was not about to let a bunch of boys loose in my house with plastic swords, so I bought 6 of these. I was very happy with how vivid the colors and detail in the pattern were and how large they were. I'd call them oversized. The boys loved them. They had just enough give in them so that they were harmless when they hit each other with them. They were very slightly floppy, but they were able to hold them up in the air without them falling over by using two hands. Out of 6, I did have one that leaked air, so I took off for durability. I thought they were overpriced until I saw them in person. I would buy them again."
"These are a nice size, but not large. They are cardboard with a shiny white front & good sized stickers (about 2") to put on them. They provide just enough stickers to satisfy the boys. Even though they would look cheaper, I'd prefer if they weren't coated with the shiny stuff because we couldn't use markers to decorate them, which made for a very quick craft just putting the stickers on. I had read that the handles fell off easily, so I bent them in a way that the stickered area wasn't in such a bind. It worked because only one boy had his handle fall off. I used some clear packing tape to fix it and the handle was super sturdy after that. These were for a princess party and I also got inflatable swords for the boys. They loved them. Good price and worth every penny."
