    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!

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.

      Comments:

      Was very pleased with the product even though some were a little smaller than stated in description.
      My son did ocean theme birthday, and living in Ohio kids have never seen a real starfish, they thought it was really cool, and I let them take a couple home.

      They even came in a nifty little basket
      And shipping was shorter than estimated time.

      I'm kind of sad I have no more parties to host this year, but I have and will recommend to everyone!
      Thank you for great products

          Using these on a fish net that I also purchased . They do have a fishy odor but to be expected since they are real. My grandson was fascinated by them. He made me put them in water. Very nice touch for your sea or beach themed party.

          mostly tiny starfish

          By assistant

          from ma

          Comments:

          They came in a nice box so they were well protected from breakage. There are mostly tiny starfish (like 1/2 wide and under) and 5 are the 3" size. So keep that in mind. If you are trying to scatter a few tables with larger starfish, you will need more packs.

                          I used these in a glass sand filled bowl with silk flowers and a candle for my table center pieces. I also had them strewn around on each table for my Hawaii themed party. They are cute and they are indeed real.

                            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

                              They were adorable, but very fragile. Must be careful with them.

                              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!

                              I thought I'd be able to use these as accent decorations, but they smell really fishy! If you need decoartions for a fish tank, they would be great.

                              They should be packaged a bit better as several were broken upon arrival.

                              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.

                              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.
