Giant Inflatable Bowling Set
Fun but not high quality
I used this for a children's event. Kids ages 3-12 all enjoyed it! The line for this game was really long. This game is fun for kids!! But as the event organizer I thought the quality wasn't great. The ball doesn't roll straight. If you over inflate the pins they won't stay standing up. I inflated them the night before, but they were flat the next day (thus inadvertently I found out they are better a little deflated). Overall, I felt that it's overpriced for the quality but because kids enjoyed it so much, I'd recommend it to a friend...

Big, big fun!
I bought the giant bowling set for our school carnival. It was a HUGE success! We had the students be the bowling ball by riding a scooter to knock down the bowling pins. I was worried that some of the pins might pop but they were still inflated after two hours.

exactly as expected
Thank you all for your reviews, the pins and ball were exactly as expected. Didn't hold air, most stood up and the ball didn't roll so well. The kids ended up throwing the ball at the pins. They lasted through the party and that was about it. I am going to keep them and hope they hold up for another party, but not holding my breath. I ordered them becuase they were the least expensive online and they were large. Cute when they were inflated and set up and the kids had fun beating them with the ball.

Very fun game, quality not the best
I ordered this as a game for my daughter's birthday party and was really looking forward to receiving it. We inflated all of the pieces the night the package arrived. The next morning, several of the pins had lost air and were "droppy" (the red one, dark yellow one, and light green one). I called OTC to tell them about it and the offered to overnight me another set so that we would have enough pins for the party.
I am very pleased with the customer service, however, if you were expecting a high quality item you might be disappointed. The markings on most of the bowling pins did not match up. This doesn't affect your ability to play the game, but just wanted to war n you so you would know what you were getting!

it's a big hit
this product has been a hit with my employees i had no problems with the pins staying inflated ,as far as not being so even i cut out small square bases out of cardboard for each one and rubber cemented the pins to them works great and tho the ball is light also fixed that just place some marbles in the holes and secure them down with a little tape or rubber cement and it works great as a matter of fact i just bought another set

Don't waste your money
Neither the ball nor half the pins would hold air and became noticeably deflated after just a few minutes. Also, only half the pins would stand up - and then only on a perfectly flat floor. No way would this work outside or with even a slight breeze. Bottoms of the pins only have a thin circle of cardboard on the bottom to make a base, and they were all uneven. Ball has no weight to it - just like a beach ball - so had trouble knocking over those few pins we could get to stand up.
