This is the rolling tumbler piloted by a child ensconced inside its protective inflatable honeycomb structure. Made from heavy-duty 1/8"-thick PVC, 30 hexagonal chambers form the tumbler's globular shape; each end provides a 13 3/4" diameter opening that allows entry for a child up to 80 lbs. With ample room in the interior for changing position, a child's shifting body weight is the only requirement to generate momentum-Newtonian physics provides the physical comedy. Ten transparent chambers enable pilots to avoid obstacles, ensuring a proper heading when aiming for rivals. Inflates by mouth or with pump (recommended, electric air pump sold separately). Ages 3 and up. 47" diameter. (7 lbs.)

Use an air pump with some finesse....
By Sacro-iliac sommelier
from Northwest Illinois
Allowed to off-gas on porch for a few days as plastic smell was very strong. Might not bother most folks. Modular design required some time to inflate, but results more than justified effort. Used an air mattress pump to inflate each module until just plump. This avoided possible over-inflation and bursting. Placed it before the 3 year old and, with minimal coaxing, he entered and had a heckuva good time. Followed directions and kept out of elements when not in use. After several days it was deflated, wiped clean, allowed to dry before being folded away for storage. Seems durable enough. Quite satisfied.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Keep inflated all summer, easy storage in garage, pull out when Grand kids arrive, they run for it. Gave one to friends with visiting Grand kids, they loved it, took it to town park, huge hit. House manager saw it, immediately ordered one for his kids.
FUN for All the Children

My Older children were literally salivating to get a hold of this honey comb tumbler. We took it out onto the Dunes and had a rolling good time. They are 14, 12, and 11. My 14 year old at first stated that she would not be caught dead inside of it, but believe me, she could not WAIT to roll down the dunes inside of it screaming the entire way. Thank you to the sales associate for the recommendation. Dont let the picture on the box fool you. My children LOVE this toy, it gets them off of their COMPUTERS and outside where they belong. They love it. It is rolling great fun, and I hear nothing but laughter and ,"wipe-out!" Then they are rolling it back up the hill for more daring stunts. They have even posted their fun to their facebook accounts, showing their fun to their friends, who all want to come and try the Honey-comb tumbler. It is awesome. What a concept!
I wish I was small enough!

fun birthday gift

Should come with a pump as each cell needs to be blown up.
The big ball went over big time!
from windsor ontario
The kids loved it but it was hard for them to roll themselves in it. Parents will have to do a lot of the running around.
Fun so far ...

My 4 yr old nephew and 3 yr old niece so far just sit in it and rock it slightly. We have had it for 1 week but I don't know if it will handle alot of roughness. They really have had alot of fun in it.
Grand Kids LOVE It!
from Chicago suburbs
Ideal for the 7-year-old, who can make it tumble on his own. The 3-year-old isn't big enough, so someone has to push it for him. Both absolutely loved it. Although the product description includes the inflated diameter, we hadn't realized it wouldn't fit through any doors in our house, nor in our mini-van, so we'll have to store it deflated. We have a big back yard with lots of open space, so it's great here, but would not work well in a small yard. If you have an electric pump that plugs into the car, you can transport it deflated and inflate it at the park.
Great for small children

My grandchildren in Maine love it.
