These Are the Classics
I have been using these for 15 years as "instructional aides" for a creativity workshop that I teach. 3,000 cushions later I know of two things that will cause them to burst:
1. Over Inflating. Stop blowing them up when they begin to pucker around the edges.
2. Pouncing. If you jump on them they will burst. Ease into them.
All this said these are not things that are easily taught to children. Adults take this advise well.

Always a laugh!
Used this for a street fair and brought lots of laugh and smiles from the crowd. They flew off our table!!!

We purchased these to go along with a valentine card...WHOOPEE IT'S VALENTINE's DAY. The price was great but I recommend buying extras due to several having holes in them.

good for laughs
I bought these for 2013 Christmas party and 2014 Christmas party for kids goodies bags. I will be buying for 2015 and on as well. Instant giggles, instant smiles. The quality is not that great as to holding standing up to the handling of 5 & 6 year olds who like to run and jump on them, the seams bust on the sides and then they are kaput. As long as you have more handy, it doesn't really matter. If the quality were better, they'd be awesome buy! For the price, pretty decent. For me, the design on them is nostalgic and I can't kind too many places with the old school design on them that I like. I will continue to happily by these from Oriental Trading, knowing that come of them will not hold up to rough handling of kids. I am ok with that.

9-year olds loved these!
We bought these for our 9 yr/old's bday party favors and the boys loved them! They are nice quality and gave the boys a lot of enjoyment making "noises" with them!

Pththththtt! Awesome Toy for Kids!
I ordered a few dozen of them as part of a large order (2K toys) for prizes in the kids carnival area at our Eeyores Birthday Party. Kids of all ages love f.a.r.t sounds and this puts out quality farts! One kid got one and asked his Dad, "What's this Dad? "It's a Whoopie Cushion!" the Dad chuckled. "What's a Whoopie Cushion?" inquired the 6 year old. Still chuckling the Dad replied, "It's something you and I will have a lot of fun with and Mommy is going to hate!" Followed by "Come on son, lets get some more tickets so we can win one for me to take to work."

Fun, but pops easy.
I bought these to add to a class treasure box. The kids had fun with them. The issue is the rubber is a bit thin and pops easy. After that happens, it no longer works.

Whoopie! It's Valentine's Day!
I bought these for my sons Valentines..."Whoopie! It's Valentine's Day!" They only lasted for about 3 squeezes and it blew a huge hole in it, I was disappointed in the quality. OTs quality is traditionally a get what you pay for kind of place, but these were not up to par. It was still a really cute Valentine though from boys ;o)

I bought these for my sons birthday party goodie bags and they were a total fail on the first try. The kids loved the idea of it, but no matter if we put less air in it and sat on it softly or pushed it together softly they still popped. I wish they would have worked for at least the day.

I must say the kids at my child's party had a blast with these. After 20 min. I think the parents were over it. Lol! The kids really enjoyed this one
