My nephew has used these on several different flights. They are soft, they stay on, they are very cute. The wires are encased in a soft threaded material that don't kink up and move well with him. The kids love the furry characters-- but really the best part is now each child can watch their tablet while I read on the plane. They are also volume controlled for kids meaning that you can crank up the speakers to max volume and these would not go above a certain sound strength to protect his precious little eardrums.
