Inflatable Ninja Swords
Look Cute... Weak seams
First, these were a bit difficult to inflate, until my 4yr old found the trick - you have to over-inflate for the valve to "catch". Most were intact - out of 24, we had 4 bad swords. Once inflated (must use a pump - the smell is very strong!), the swords looked cute and worked great as props for a ninja party. However, they barely lasted through the party and most sprung seam leaks within 3 hours (regardless of usage - there were a few that weren't used at all). Overall, they served their purpose for the couple hours at the party, but wouldn't be a good long term toy.

3 came with holes, rest deflated by end of party.

Worst purchase ever
I ordered these for my sons ninja party. They were a disaster from the beginning. The first problem was with blowing them up. They were flimsy and wouldn't stay straight and upright. And the air would creep back out when you tried to close the valve. So, we tried to have a good attitude, the kids were so excited when they arrived and saw them. Each kids got a sword and within 5 minutes of playing with them ( and I'm talking gentle play, not even something like sword fighting) all but 2 had a leak in them. All the kids were soooo disappointed. They sure look cute but the quality was horrible.

Waste of Money
The first sword I blew up had a hole in it. Most of the swords that did blow up were deflated within 5 minutes

I got these for my sons birthday party. I blow up a lot of kids toys and these were flimsy when I was done. My husband managed to get them to look more like swords but atbthe first few swings at each other we lost two swords. By the end of the party they were all but two deflated. They didn't pop or get stabbed they came apart at seams on corners so I think the craftsmenship was poor. Very sad but the kids were able to move on.

My son had a ninja-themed birthday party, so I ordered these swords as party favors. I read the previous reviews, so I wasn't expecting too much. They are just as others have indicated. They look great, have no holes, or visible problems. They just don't hold air very well. So, when bunch of little boys try to have an inflatable sword fight, their swords become limp and "boring" quite quickly!
