Inflatable Animal World Beach Balls
Great for the price!
I purchased these to hang in the children's room for the summer library program, "One World Many Stories." I think they are great for the price and great give-a-ways to the children when the program is over.

Had all of these Globes had held air, we may have been ok with this product, BUT 4 OF THEM WAS DEFECTIVE. We had planned on giving one to each child at my Granddaughters Birthday Party, but had some un-happy 5 year old's :( I will Never order this item again...The few that did work were great and very colorful....

Poor quality, not at all as pictured
I bought these beach balls to take to Africa for the children. They are of poor quality. The picture shows them blue with vibrant animals and colors. They are white and it appears they were folded up before the ink ever dried - it is hard to make out any of the animals in several places. the lines do not match up at the seams so the globe is not accurate. I am extremely disappointed because they looked so cool online. I would not reccommend - in fact I will be returning them for a refund.

really ugly print
those inflatable worlds could be just great if they looked like the picture, sadly, the prints are really bad and looks like a grey mess, it is really hard to say which animal is what (I actually see much better on the online small picture!) also it's only 2 colors, blue and black, so it looks like an old sad ball...

I had purchased the balls for use in teaching continents and habitats with my first graders. Unfortunately, the animals are so poorly and darkly printed as to be unrecognizable. I would not have been able to determine identity myself without the labels!

Beach Ball Error
These beach balls float upside down because all of mine came with the inflating tube on the top of the world (in the artic circle). Becasue the inflating tube is in that position, it is weighted incorrectly and floats upside down - MADE IN CHINA

Extremely Poor Quality
Balls are not at all as pictured in catalog. Animals are blotches of black ink, coloring is substandard, grid lines do not match up, continents are cut off in sections. Even the shape of the ball is awful; they are a lopsided egg shape. Returning all 22 dozen that were ordered.

Bought these for my son's 8th birthday pool party, they were a BIG hit! All the boys loved throwing them around in the pool. Good quality and price. Would buy again!

I bought these for an animal themed party, thinking would be great to tie in some geography. The animals look like brown smudged finger prints- you have to stare at them for a minute to figure out what animal shape they resemble. Once you get past that you realize that most of the geographical names where the globe's seams are do not match up. 'Sia' for Asia- cannot find the A anywhere.. 'Lantic' and Ocean were no where near each other- lantic not even being where it should be. I was sad when they said they would refund my money and I did not have to send them back- since they are so awful I cannot give them away in good conscience even as a donation..
