This was a Christmas gift for my 8 and 4 year old kids. It was awesome for the first couple of days, then sections of it started deflating. The seams of it started leaking air...not sure why ( we weren't hard on it). Now more than half of it is completely flat. Very disappointed kiddos!

I bought this for my 6 year olds birthday. She saw it in a catalogue and wanted it. Despite all the warnings about how hard it was to blow up - I had no idea. It took my husband and I over an hour. After giving it to her and letting her and her sister roll around the deck with it - it started leaking. I called and they are sending me another one. I do have to return the faulty one which in my opinion is a pain in the *ss. The kids do love it even half full of air. They are using it as a cave now. Can't wait to see how it is in the Summer in the yard.

My kids were so excited when they got this for Christmas. But there are so many issues. First, it took forever to blow up since there are so many differnt sections. But I wouldn't mind that if that was the only problem. We used it for about fifteen minutes before noticing that several of the compartments were leaking. We tried to blow them up again, but now about a third of the compartments won't stay blown up for more than a minute. Such a bummer since it was so fun when it worked!

This is a super fun active toy that can be used to encourage all seasons of outdoor play! I will say that blowing it up took over and hour with a basic pump:( Storage is also a concern, since once it is blown up, you're not going to want to ever deflate it. But my kids had a blast getting in and out of it, and even use it to read a book inside with their pillows. Go figure!

As expected, this product did take quite a while to inflate the first time, even with the pump. We were careful not to overinflate. Our three kids (ages 7 to 9) have been using it constantly since X-mas with no issues except needing to inflate a few chambers occasionally. We have only used it inside - probably won't risk taking it outside where it could puncture. The kids say that this ball is so much fun and a great gift!
