My daughter insisted on buying these at AGPC in August. I had read this review and I agreed with Green Chile Supergirl's assesment. However, it was her money, so what could I say?
Actually, she wanted to pierce Kirsten's ears and I told her she had to wait until she was at least 12 to do so. (If it was a JLY I wouldn't have cared, but not Kirsten, not yet.) So this was her solution.
I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised. All 5 girls have been wearing their earrings since then. They have numerous costume changes by a (careful) 6 year old. They have hair brushed on a regular basis. And the earrings have hung on! She did out one pair on her knock off Bratz doll and those did come off pretty quickly.
So, from a 6 year old's perspective, these are great! From a mom's perspective, these are not too bad.
My dd used her own $8 to buy these, and what a disappointment. They don't stick at all to the dolls' ears, not even for a few minutes. There is a sticky residue on the back of the earrings, but it's not sticky enough to do the job. After reading the above two reviews, it would seem there have been batches with differing quality. The current batch is not worth $1 and will be going back to the store.
