I ordered this product to scatter around the tables for a beach/nautical themed bridal shower I will be throwing. The price was the best I found anywhere. You have to know what you are getting though. These are real starfish, so they are smelly and very fragile. I know they will complete the look I am going for so I think they are great. This past weekend was the perfect weekend; sunny and zero chance of rain, so I laid them out on the table on the deck to air out. They stayed there for 2 days and now they do not smell anymore. Be carefule when opening the containers they actual come in as some may break.

              I was a little disappointed when I first say the starfish, they were so small but that actually was my fault. I didn't read the size on them. But they are still very real and cute and will go perfectly with my themed party

                What can you say about starfish? They were small, which is what I wanted to put on my fishnets. They were all perfectly shaped and the arrived without one star being damaged. I may order more for my coastal theme. Very nice!

                These would work scattered on a table or maybe grouped together in a vase or something. Was hoping some would be large enough would be large enough to attach to the outside of a hurricane for a centerpiece but that wasn't the case

                Having the Starfish scattered over the table of a beach-themed event added to the look and feel of the event. They are very tiny and fragile and just touching some of them caused the arms to shatter and leave dust everywhere. They are not practical for a high traffic area, such as a food buffet table where they will have a likelihood of getting touched and smashed, but as a decoration for an out of the way area--perfect and lovely!

                These are real starfish as advertised and the odor confirms it. They are not appropriate for use around food. I hoped to use them in fish netting that was covering tables at a nautical themed party, but they were too small. The size of the largest one worked, but the rest we just ended up throwing away.

                  Comments:

                  We used these real starfish to add decor to a beach themed candy buffet and they were excellent. Some were used for a ribbon we created to go around the top tier of the table, some were scattered and a few were hot glued to various jars and frames. They were durable enough to work with and get more than one use out of and were much less expensive than the ones we priced at the craft stores.

                    Are these real starfish or plastic imitations? Can these be taken into another country, or are there problems with customs?

                      Add our Real Starfish to any beach themed wedding, under the sea event or summer luau. The Real Starfish decorations come in assorted shapes, colors and sizes. We do not know how customs are for the country you have in question. You would need to contact customs for the area you will be traveling.

                      These are real starfish, therefore smell fisy when they are fist opened. After a day they work fine for table decorations!
