Nice large decoration
The large inflatable cactus not only made a great decoration for our Fiesta, but we ended up using it for a game as well. The only negative is that it is unstable and we had to anchor it with a heavy blanket. But other than that, it was a hit. And for the price, it was a great value. It stayed inflated for the entire Fiesta, too.

I bought 3 of these and all had holes in the seams. The patch slowed the leak, but all 3 had to be re-inflated prior to party start time. They only stood for about 30 minutes and then each fell over. They looked like they'd had too much tequila:). They were thrown out as soon as the guests left. A separate product, for the cactus cooler, did just fine. I'd skip these and buy the cooler for a few bucks more.

Hole in one Cactus
I purchased two for our western theme end of year preschool graduation program. One was okay, but you will need to have some sort of support to hold it up. The other came with a hole in it and wouldn't stay aired up so we ended up using only one cactus on stage. Didn't try getting a replacement since we did not discover the damaged item until right before the program.

3 were fine, 1 was a dud.
I ordered 4 for a Cinco de Mayo party. 1 would not stay inflated. Total dud. The other 3 generally stayed inflated, although they were leaning heavily by the end of the party. Like the partygoers! Blended right in!

I buy at least 5 of these every few years. They are very realistic for an Inflatable. People who had trouble keeping them standing up probably didn't blow the base up enough, one really needs an electric inflator to get enough pressure in them to stand up straight.

Makes a good decoration
We bought two of these for an adult Fiesta party. They are a good size, about 6' x 2.5' and have nice bright colors. The only problem is that that bases are not stable. We had to put both of ours against walls. So if you have space against a wall, they work well, but will be leaning slightly against the wall. Our guests seemed to like them; they commented that the cacti added to the party atmosphere. One note, if you have a foot or hand pump, it makes it much easier to blow up.

Purchased for a western party. Mine did not stand up on it's own. I had hay bails that I propped it up against and it worked for a scene setter.

great for our theme
We will be using this cactus as part of our decor for Project Graduation, perfect for our wild west theme!

Looks nice, but tippy
I bought three of these cacti to use as props for my preschool classrooms christmas program. They look nice enough, but they will not stand up on their own. We had to use wooden blocks from our center to place on the base in order to get it to stand up straight. One of the bases leaks air badly, but they did include patches if you can find the leak.
Nice looking piece, but you need to find your own way of supporting it or else it will fall over.
