Good for the value
This juke box takes forever to blow up. I inflated it several days before the event to make sure it held the air. Yes it did hold it. I just had to add some more since it had been sitting for over a week. It has a large blow-up hole in the bottom very small compartment. Makes no sence. Then a small regular blow-up hole for the large main compartment. It didn't take my air mattress pump, I had to use the needle that I use for the soccerballs, and be sure to be careful so you don't puncture it. I could chose to blow it up by my own lung power, but too exhausting. It does not stand on its own, must lean on something.
Other than the hard work to inflate it, it was good value for the money. Didn't have any other problems with it.

Hoped for better
I purchased two Juteboxes. You can blow them up yourself(it takes awhile) but you should use a compressor to blow them up. One inflated and has held its air for a week. The second one had a slow leak (couldn't find it) and wouldn't hold air.

Did Not Inflate
I purchased this for a 50s themed anniversary party for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. It inflated initially, but didn't hold air. We ended up sticking it in a closet. I think it would have been cute judging from how it looked as we were trying to blow it up. My best advice is test it as soon as you get it and trade it before your event if necessary. I will say they were very nice about refunding my money.

Not so fabulous 50's party!
We were really looking forward to having this as a backdrop for pictures at our Sock Hop. It came with a one inch slit in the front of it. So we couldn't use it. It would have looked awesome with the other 50's decorations.

Not worth the money I paid for it
It was really a cute idea for an adult birthday party and we all dressed up in fifties attire and I wanted to do pictures around the juke box and Elvis posters I had . I could not because the juke box wouldn't stay inflated long enough to do that. I guess I could have blown it up two weeks before the party so that if it would not hold air I could have sent it back for a new one, but with no guarantee that it would work. Very dissapointed in this product.

not the best, but... could be
I purchased two of these Juteboxes. They would have been hard to blow up with out a compressor! Here's the trouble. One showed up with a huge (from the factory) gash in it. We duct taped it all up for the presentation and it held air for the one hour I needed it too. Had to prop it against a wall. The second one had a slow leak (couldn't find it) and wouldn't hold air, so we couldn't even use it for the show. Oriental trading Co is sending out two new Jute boxes... and we will try again. They will be cool for what we need IF we get some that hold air!!
