Inflatable Rainbow Beach Balls
Perfect for our Event
I bought these for our company picnic at the beach. They were great... served their purpose well.

We used these for Hawaiian Luau birthday party (5 yr olds); we blew all 12 up before hand, and let the kids kick/throw them around (we had the party at our local YMCA gym) -- all 12 fully inflated/no holes, etc. The kids had an awesome time with the beach balls (i.e., fun play and no one gets hurt!), and the parents in attendance thought it was a great idea. We also set out two large plastic lawn buckets for the kids to try to throw the balls into, which they liked. Plus, helped the kids burn off the sugar from the cupcakes!

Hit or miss...
These were smaller than I expected, even after reading the listed dimensions. Even still, they were a good size for our party guests, ages 1-3.
Cons: The balls are not perfectly spherical. A lot of them were kind of lopsided. Also about 50% of them deflated within the day while the other 50% held air well. Kind of hit or miss...

Not a good product
These beachballs are not well made. They are much smaller than the usual bb and have bad seams that pucker. For the price, you can find bb's at Wal Mart that are bigger and better made. I just didn't want to wait for the seasonal things to come out. It was a matter of a week and I really wish I had waited. I ended up buying two sets of bb's. For what I paid, it's not worth sending these back and paying the shipping again, so I'm just out the $. Hope this review helps someone else avoid the same mistake.

just what I wanted
These were perfect for my son's birthday party! The balls were being thrown and kicked around all day... and after the party was over, only one deflated.

Lots of leaks
Over half of the balls had leaks and would not stay inflated.

Beachballs all inflated easily. Unfortunately both the 12" & 18" balls had two or three per dozen that would not remain inflated. Dissappointing & frustrating.

After reading reviews, I've begun testing for air leaks and, so far, no issues. A few points I wish I knew before ordering...
1 - despite being blown up, they are a bit lopsided rather than perfectly round
2 - oriental trading's website in printed on each of the balls I've checked.
All in all, I'm pleased with the purchase; the price was good, they arrived quickly and the quality seems adequate.

No leaks here
Just used these for my daughter's bday party and I did not have one that leaked or had a hole. I guess I got lucky although my daughter blew them up and they were not super inflated.
