Bought as a 'fiddle' toy to use with students to remain focused. I didn't expect these to last long as so cheap, but how wrong was I! They got stretched, wrapped around things, tied in knots - you name it, and yet these durable little yellow men survived. They certainly have a fun element too and a very useful tool for anyone working in education. I can see that these would make excellent party bag fillers for younger children who would get just as much enjoyment out of them. Arrived within a week so very impressed with seller.
