Inflatable Fun Roller
this item was wonderful....6,7,9,10 year old children rolled each other in the toy all summer of '09 and we brought it out again on a warm day this winter and it got punctured... lasted a lot longer than I thought it would...very strong and lots of fun...ordering another one for the spring time games

not o.t.c.s fault
i would like to start by saying this review does not reflect negativley on oriental trading at all. i have been doing buisness with them for 20 years, and this order was the biggest problem i have ever had ordering through them. customer service has been so helpful, friendly and fast in trying to correct an issue with manufacturing/supplier problems.
I bought this for my 2 and 5 year old to play with in the back yard. it never made it that far. after 5 adults spending 2 hours trying to blow it up, we found the first item had a slice in it i thought might be my fault (even though i opened the box with a car key and the slice was long and clean) the outer package had no slices, so i called the o.t.c for an exchange. within a week i had another one. i got it blown up, called my kids in front and they had a blast on the grass for about 5 minutes. my 2 year old got excited and put his fist through a seam on the first punch... that seemed pretty extreme to me, seeing as how it was supposed to be a durable outdoor toy and my son is no hulk (18 mo clothes are kinda baggy on him)... i called the company again, not for a refund or exchange, but just to suggest they stop carrying this roller... customer service cheerfully told me they thought 3rd time was the charm and another is on its way... fingers crossed

I have seen one of these before and kids have a lot of fun with it. The first one I ordered had a small break in the seam. I called because I needed it in three days for a gift. They overnighted me another one, It had more holes than the first one. I had to pay shipping on the first one but not on the second one. I sent both back and got credit.

This did not last
This inflatable roller was great fun for the kids until it lost all the air after a few hours. I tried to patch it several times with no luck. This however is not a bad reflection on Oriental Trading. I did inform them of my problem and they did replace it quickly. Unfortunately the replacement only lasted a week before going flat. I have bought other items from Oriental Trading that have been great!

LOVE FOR KIDS!
My little one had a b-day party and all the kids had this huge line to get on!

We carry inflatable yard toys on our mission trips to Nicaragua. Last year we took this roller. It rolled over grassy fields and over rocky dirt. I was amazed how it stood up and the children laughed and had the most fun. By the end of the week it looked a little worn, but hundreds of children had played on it. I wanted to order some more but they are out of stock.

instant love by kids
This roller is so much fun. It's large in size, sometimes 2 kids can fit into it. Kids of different age all want to play with it, and they devise thounsands of different ways to play with it. The only draw back is eventually there will be a leak after weeks of playing. Hopefully I can find that leak and seal it.

Disappointed after first inflation to have this brand new toy slowly loose air and go flat in two hours. With re-inflation every hour to firmness, the kids enjoyed it a lot.

We've had a very bad winter here so far and the kids have enjoyed playing inside on this. Lots of laughing and screaming although I'm not sure how much more abuse it will take.

Great toy for an active child.
I bought this roller for my three year old son, he loves it! He calls it his hamster wheel, we have a pet hamster, and rolls back and forth across the playroom floor.
The seams could be a little thicker along the edges, but we haven't had any blow-outs.
