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 purchased this cactus to use in a parade float. When I received it, I immediately had it blown up to check it out. There were no problems. The cactus stood blown up for 1 week. We then used it in our first parade. It is still standing and will be used in another parade next week. Great quality. I am very pleased with this product and highly recommend it.

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.

It went limp overnight. I had to take time out to blow it back up. No wonder it comes with a patch, but with a b-day party going on who has the time!

leaky and useless
i bought four inflatable cacti for my pool. two did not stand up straight, could not stand at all without falling over, and two would not hold air. they sadly collapsed in the pool. These are not inexpensive novelties, but due to this bad quality, I would skip these.
my attached picture captures 3 of these inflatable cactus. The two that were standing and floating were heavily duct taped to stay upright. and the foreground one was tied to the railing, before it collapsed from it's leak, the 4th was unsalvagable with a big leak.
