Inflatable Candy Cane Limbo Kit
Broken in 5 minutes
We purchased this game for our school Winter Ball. We took it out of the box and blew it up. First of all, it had trouble even staying up. One of the poles kept tilting to the side, and the limbo pole would drop. We started limbo, with a long line of kids waiting to play, and one of the side poles completely deflated. We inspected it to see where the air was coming out and found two large rips along the sides. We threw the side poles away and just used the limbo pole for the rest of the dance- which we could have accomplished using a broom.

According to my daughter's 2nd grade class, I am the "most awesome" Room Mom ever!
This was a HUGE hit at this year's 2nd grade school holiday party! I'll use it at the Kindergartener's Valentine's Day party...and will use it for the next several years! It took some lung power, but I really didn't have any problems inflating them, and I brought them to the school already inflated.
After inflating, you are supposed to fill each base of the pedestals with water or sand. This should allow them to stand on their own without tipping. I didn't try this, so I don't know if it works. Instead, another Room Parent and I stood next to each pedestal to balance them. (And we needed to be close and monitor the game to ensure the kids didn't push each other, etc!) However, you can balance it if only one person is holding one of the pedestals; -- you don't need two people.
I don't know how long these will last (we did not allow the kids to jump into or play with the pedestals), but I'm hoping this will last for many more years of class parties.

Fun activity for a lot of ages
Kids from 3-10 had a good time with this game and it held up well. Upright "poles" didn't stay straight up but it worked okay

Hard to setup
Hard to setup. Wldnt stand up. Kids ended up using the sides as boppers :-P instead of its intended purpose.

great idea but poorly made
I purchased this for a church Christmas party, upon inflating realized that one pole did not want to stand up no matter how we balanced it. I thought it would balance itself if the bar was put across the two poles, but it couldn't do that either, because the little holder pieces on each pole didn't really line up with one another. The kids just kept knocking it down while trying to play with it, it wouldn't stay up long enough to limbo.
