6 Inflatable Under the Sea Giant Animals
Huge hit with kids!
Purchaed these for daughters 4th Under the Sea birthday party. They were a HUGE hit with the kids! Some even went home on accident with party goers. None were defective. They were large and good quality. Just wish the price was cheaper.

Very cute, kids loved them, but they don't hold the air so well
Ordered these for my son's 4th birthday party. The kids loved them! I had a handheld air pump that was too big, so I had to blow them up the old fashioned way. They don't really hold air well. I re-blow them every day.

Bought these for my 3 year old's birthday party since she is OBSESSED with fish and ocean life.
They are great overall, bigger than I expected, it's just too bad the the rainbow fish arrived with a hole in that that we couldn't patch, so we ended up with one less than we planned.

Used these for our beach themed vbs. No problem with any of them having holes or not getting what was pictured. The holes for hanging were great and made it simple to hang them from the ceiling and on the walls. They were very cute and colorful. Only complaint is they could have been a little cheaper.

Better Than Balloons
I ordered a set of these for my daughter's 4th Under the Sea birthday party and hung them from the ceiling with tacks. There are holes you can thread string or curling ribbon into and hang them without problem. They are cute, fun, and kids of all ages loved to play with them. One of the creatures had a small hole when we blew him up. Oriental Trading Co. sent me another entire batch FREE plus added a nice apology gift of cute plastic reindeer Christmas mugs! How awesome is that customer service!! This was my first time ordering from Oriental Trading Co. and I'm sold on this company based on that interaction alone. The second batch we had on the floor so the kids could play with them. A huge hit for an ocean-themed party and better than balloons by far.

Save your time and your money!
These were smaller than they appear in the photo but still cute. My child was so excited about them and could hardly wait for them to be inflated. Within seconds after blowing each one up, however, I heard air escaping. I tried taping over the (very large) holes to no avail. At this point, only one is holding air. The others are dead and deflated. I should have saved my twenty bucks and just gone to the dollar store. I would have saved so much wasted time and money!

not so good purchase
I would not recommend this product because even though the description says that set includes a whale, dolphin,shark and octopus, my set came with 4 fish (exactly the same),a whale and dolphin and 3 fish had holes on it and I couldn't even use them for the party.

I bought these to go with my ocean themed daycare room. I hung them from the ceiling and the kids love them! They keep asking when we are going to get some more lol. They are super cute and colorful. Unlike the other reviews i didnt have any problem with any of them having holes or leaking air.

I used these as both decorations and prizes at my daughters 3rd birthday and they were a hit. The different animals added a nice 3D decoration feel for our Under Water theme party. I recommend blowing them prior to use because some did have a leak, but I contacted customer service and received replacements quickly and hassle free.

Colorful & Fun
I got these for my son's ocean themed 4 year old birthday party. He LOVES sharks and naturally chose the shark blow up. We used them as decorations and tied a few balloons to them. The kids all immediately were picking out which one was for them even though I didn't say they could take them home. It was part of their goody bag, but it was nice to see they really wanted them too. When I first got them, like a previous review mentioned I inflated them all to make sure they were fine. A couple weren't, so I called customer service and they were exceptional. I was able to get extra ones for no cost or shipping just in time for the party.
