I purchased these to use with my three and four year old Sunday School class. They were perfect for that use and the kids really liked choosing their own color. They clean well in a dishwasher and are quite well made. Definitely recommend if you have a need for a large quantity of paintbrushes.
If you are looking for a durable brush to spread glue or something to give to small children to use this will be fine and I would give this item a 3 rating. I put them in a goodie bag with an art activity and it suited that purpose.
I would NOT use this product if I were seriously trying to make decent artwork and would rate it a 1 in that application. The nylon bristles are hard, don't hold paint well and are difficult to control on paper. These are "economy" brushes for sure as they are reasonably priced but they are not "watercolor" brushes that you would actually want to work with as an adult or give to older children/teens. It will just frustrate them.
These are exactly what they claim to be and are perfect for painting with kids. I ordered these to use for VBS crafts. We painted rocks. I threw the brushes in a bucket as each group finished and washed them all at the end. The bristles stayed in place and I had enough to not care if one got chewed on (yup, it happens). Don't buy these thinking you are going to paint a masterpiece, but for crafts, they will last several uses at least. I could see them being great in a classroom setting.
