            I bought this as a gift for my 8 year old brother. He absolutely loves it. Only problem is some of the balloons had holes in them already and the balloons are super weak so they pop a little to easily. Other than that it makes a good gift

                This is a fun idea and a great kit. I wish it came with more ballons, but the big hang up for me was that the instructions were very hard to understand, especially for children. Even at age 8 a child would struggle. This would be best for teens or as an activity set for parents to help kids with.

                      The vintage-inspired packaging of this kit got our attention, but when we saw all of the fun creatures we could create our interest really inflated! From simple critters to more-complex pliable pets, this set is sure to bring bunches of balloon bending fun. Does it leave you dreaming of carnivals, clowns, and cotton candy?

                      I had mixed emotions when I submitted my vote; thumbs up or thumbs down! The reason I decided to go with thumbs down is due to common nature of this product. This website specializes in Uncommon goods!Therefore, with this item not being unique, I had to choice thumbs down.

                      Although I must agree that this kit is not uncommon enough, there is an appeal to it! Very vintage looking, and would do a fun Christmas stocking filler. Other than that, I don't see the point, but still like it!!

                      This really isn't unique. It is the same thing you can buy at a big box store, but in a really cool box.
