Inflatable Beach Ball in Pool Cooler
This cooler was bought for my son's Pool Party, however, I did not get a chance to use it as such. My son turned three and he insisted that the cooler was a mini pool, and my husband filled it with water and he enjoyed his own personal pool. It held up well as a pool, so i'm certain it will do just as well as a cooler.

Beach Ball Pool Cooler
At first, my wife doubted my choice of this item to use for our grandson's birthday party. However, after receiving the shipment form Oriental Trading and after having read about quality issues from previous users, we decided to inflate the cooler the night prior to the party.
Upon inflation, the sides and beach ball portion stayed inflated overnight. There is a small ring in the base, just around the beach ball that lost pressure, but it did not affect the performance of the cooler in any way.
An hour or so before party time, plenty of canned drinks for the adults and juice boxes for the kids went in with ice in an outdoor setting. I don't think we had to add any additional ice throughout the three hour party.
My wife told me later that she really like the way it looked and functioned.

Holds a lot more than what it looks
We ordered 5 of these for our prom and they worked out great. They each held over a case of water bottles and ice.

I purchased this for my two year old nephew's birthday party and was very disappointed. The size is fine; we were able to fit 40 pouch drinks and roughly 10 bottled drinks in with no problem. The color was great and inflated fine but as soon as we put the ice in it began to deflate - not completely but it was very noticeable. I take a lot of pride in the parties I put together and this was embarrassing to be honest. I would not recommend.

Cute but not worth the money
I bought two of these for my sister's pool house warming and they are too small!!! They are not worth 9.99 and one we blew one of them up it was leaking! Everyone at the party said I should returjn for my money back. I just feel like that would have been too much of a hassle.

I haven't used it yet but I did blow it up. There was a small hole in the bottom ring. I had to use the patch kit to patch it up. Don't have time to call and get it replaced. My sons party is Saturday so it will have to do. Over all I really like the cooler. And the size it great.

Worth the money!
Surprised at how much room there is. Awesome buy!

These were much smaller then antisapated, only about a foot from the ground, and does not hold a lot. It's cute, but the quality is kind of flimsly. Also a lot of condensation so you wouldn't want to use it in the house or outside where people will track the water inside the house.

Very fun to have for an outdoor party- worth the money.

one ball won't hold air
I bought two for my son' s "giant water slide" bday party. One holds air. The other cooler holds air, but the ball, which is decorative, keeps deflating. I'll see if my husband can find the slow leak and fix it. It's totally cute!
