Giant Inflatable Whale
I bought two of these for a birthday party. The kids ended up playing with them in the pool and they held up so well! We cannot get them to pop. The kids jumped on them, tried to ride them, tossed them around and they are still in great shape! Great purchase!

We purchased this as a photo opt for the kids at the party! It was a big hit with all of them and stayed inflated for days! We did use a compressor to blow up, so that was not an issue.

Just as pictured. Very cute and perfect color. Please be aware that the whale will take a long time to blow up. We used a pump and it still took a while! It was worth it though for the kids loved him. Great for photo opportunities!

Tons of Fun
This was the hit of my daughter's 4th birthday party, where we had a mermaid/under-the-sea theme. The kids loved sitting on it, hugging it, pretending it was their pet, etc. It does tend to tip over but the kids didn't care. 4 stars because it took forever to blow up, even with a foot pump, and even longer (2 hours!) to deflate - there's just one little air nozzle!

We ordered 3 whales, luckily they sent us 4. I think the packer saw slits in the bag and added a 4th. Only 1 was in good shape. One of the whales had a smeared eye, the other had several slits. it was not patchable with the extra parts included.
We were able to salvage 3 for Sunday School.
It does take a long time to blow up. The kids thought they were great.

You get what you pay for....beware
Went to inflate for VBS, several big holes in it - not on seams. Called OT on a Friday morning, they overnighted a new one free of charge so I could have it by Monday. Received replacement as promised, went to inflate and several big holes again. OT refunded my purchase price promptly.

Children Love This!
I use this in my preschool classroom and not a day has passed that they haven't played with it! The children look forward to playing with "Mr. Blue" everyday.

This whale was a hit
I bought this whale for our company's game day celebrations. A spirit award is given out every year, and each team's spirit preparations get more and more elaborate as each year goes by. This whale managed to make an imposing yet whimsical impression. Everybody wanted their picture with it, and it even made it into our final company photo.
The whale shipped quickly and he stayed inflated all day long. We brought a battery-powered pump to the field and that inflated it about halfway, but we had to do the rest with a foot-pump. Took about 30 minutes overall, I'd say.
