Smile Face Heart Balloon Racers
Kids Loved It!
Students loved playing with these during party. I used an air pump to stretch balloons before I gave them - no problems for kids blowing them up. Great culmination for our air and weather unit. Bought more at sale price - even better deal!

I was so excited to buy these, but when I got them, they were a joke. I tried 2 of them before the party, but one of the balloons has a hole in it and the cars barely move. The farthest I've been able to get the cars to go is 3 inches. That's really pathetic. The idea of balloon powered cars is cute, but the implementation is awful!!!

I bought these to hand out to my son's pre-k class. However, the quality is so poor that I will be returning them. The wheels fall off the car and the balloon does not blow up. Waste of money!!!!

We got these a few years back for my daughter to hand out as her Valentines, and they were great. So we got them for my son this time around. The first one we tried had a hole in the balloon. The next 2 we tried inflated, but the car wouldn't go when the air came out - they just sat there. We tried one more, and the balloon burst after a couple of puffs. I can't test them all before giving them to the kids, so I guess we'll have to find something else. Very disappointing.

These do not work!
I purchased these to use as part of a science experiment for my 2nd graders. The wheels do not turn, so the cars just sit there. Out of 12, we were able to get only one to barely move. I was very disappointed with this product. Do not purchase!

Good Product for price
The children enjoyed these cars very much. Some balloons did not work. Replacement balloons are cheap. I gave these cars to my children for Valentine's day.

I purchased a couple bags of these for my children's classes, and there were a couple left over so I decided to let my daughter play with one. That one didn't work, so we tried another and another until we had tried they extra 5 to find none worked. So I decided to pull them from the goody bags and found none of the ones I tried worked (which was probably about 25 out of 43). I decided not to send any into school because I now didn't have enough for everyone even if a few did work. Big disappointment as I know this can be a fun novelty if it worked.

Not what I remembered as a kid
This product was not consistent. I tried 3 of them and 2 out of 3 did not work at all. The one that worked would have been better if it made a whir sound.

Wheels didn't work
When the kids got their cars out on the floor of the classroom, about a third of them had cars that wouldn't move. The plastic on the wheels prevented them from going anywhere. They had small plastic tags or creases; you could tell they were cheaply made, and wouldn't work.

Kids loved them!
We got these for 2nd graders, but we played with them here at my office just as much! Very cute and fun.
