Sturdy but soft. Doesn’t hit when being hit and you can easily have a sword fight.
This was exactly what I was looking for for my son's 4 year old birthday party. They look great and more sturdy than expected from foam. Nicely constructed. Shipping was quick and pricing was best online. Extremely satisfied and will order again. Much thanks and I feel very lucky to find this. I'm a very particular person so this review is nit done lightly but I like to give credit when it is earned.
