they arrived quickly and were packaged well. The paper is thiner than expected and almost like a tissue paper. It was challenging keeping it lit and trying to get it to go more than a couple of feet off the ground. We're in the south and the weather could have been the cause since we have dense humidity. I'd give these another try on a cooler and less humid night. All in all it could have been user error, the weather or the product, but a lot of fun trying these out!
