Twist Balloon Kit with Mini Air Pump & "Balloon Magic" Book
I definately recommend this kit, even for beginners. It is a very easy to follow instruction book. We were practicing days before the party and we couldn't stop because we were having so much fun making the various animals.

Sadly, using this pump to inflate balloons is nearly impossible unless you have very strong hands and excellent coordination. The manipulations to stop the air outflaw at each movement of the pump require serious practice. We could not do it. We ended up using a regular bicycling pump, which worked fine. The balloons are good quality, and the brochure on how to make animals is very clear. Only the pump is unusable, in my view. Surely unusable by a kid under 10, even the one who can easily use a bicycling pump.

animals balloons are great to blow up and shape for children. my children enjoy them. however i had to use a separate pump to inflate the balloons - one that's much smaller then the one you sent. Why, the one you sent was to wide to fit into the balloon, and once we got it in was too hard to pump. so i only gave a 3 star.

I was all excited to buy this for my daughter's birthday party but the pump is not working so the purchase has turned out to be a waste.

air pump no good
I was really excited to use this product with the residents at the retirement community where I lead activities. the air pump does not work at all, however, rendering the balloons useless and my residents without balloon animals.

I was excited to get this product, however with its first use, the pump would not fill the balloon and suddenly the head of the pump broke off! I was pretty disappointed.

I was nervous about the purchase of this product because of the mixed reviews. However, I found the balloons to be of good quality and the pump easy to use. Moreover, we were able to read the book on balloon twisting and do it ourselves as opposed to hiring a vendor.

Poor Latex balloons & Junk Pump
Bought this product for office promo, but we only get to use the balloons. The pump doesn't work. Air flow in both ends which useless to pump the balloons. About 70% of the balloons are OK to work with. Most has holes (defect balloons) or snapped apart easily.

Very Difficult to work
I purchased this for an Easter Party for kids. We had a very difficult time getting the pump to blow up balloons. We sadly gave up and went with another plan.

Book is great, the pump is junk.
The book is great and easy to follow. The pump is absolute junk and didn't even pump up balloons. In fact, it fell apart the second time we tried to use it.
