Inflatable Obstacle Course Tire Set
So much FUN!!!
I bought these for my daycare kids and they were a HUGE hit! The colors are vibrant; they withstand a lot of abuse; of course, as with any inflatable, they do eventually lose air or pop, but for the price we definitely got our money's worth and enjoyed an entire summer's use out of them. For the toddlers and preschoolers we would line them up and say, "Run and touch the red one...step inside the blue one, run around the yellow one," etc. We also staggered them in the hallway so that the younger ones (2-4yrs) could use the walls for support. The older ones also liked to stack the tires while standing inside them (like the Michelin Tire man) and then they'd bounce off one another with them. My assistant and adult kids couldn't even resist running through them. So much fun; the kids don't even realize they are getting great exercise playing with them. I'm ordering a couple more sets!

On a Fast Track to Fun
Initially the tires were used as decor for a birthday party. Later during the day we used them in a pit crew race.
They are really cute, but I secretly wished they were all black to match the other red & black decorations.

We ordered these for a park outreach. One was defective upon arrival and the others are not in great shape after just one use. These are definitely for very small children as the wholes are not big enough for even upper elementary kids. They are cute, but just not what I expected for 20 bucks.

Too little, too large
I found these to be exactly as advertised, but they were too small for my fifth graders and too large for the kinder crew. some kids tripped on these andI worried about twisted ankles.As someone stated they are hard to keep in place if there is a breeze.

The first set of tires we received, the blue had a hole in it and the purple deflated within an hour (we couldn't find the hole). Customer service was GREAT. They sent us a new set. In the second set of tires, the blue, green and orange tires deflated within an hour. We can not find any holes, yet they are hard to keep filled.

Really like them!
We aren't using them for their original purchase. We bought them for 2-4 year olds to roll and roll around in. They work fantastically for that! I don't think they're for kids older than about 6, though. The little ones sure love them.

We used these for our obstacle course during Field Day and they were a diappointment. When a breeze picked up there was no way to safely stake them down so I had to pull a volunteer from another activity to just babysit them and re-arrage after each use. Secondly as soon as the upper graders, 4th, 5th & 6th, ran through they were all popped b/c the openings were too small for the kids feet and kept stepping on the rims. I guess for smaller kids and either indoors or a windless day their fine.
