Unfortunately this isn't anything to get excited over. I think it could've been better than what is advertised on Amazon. But for the price and for the audience it attracts, it isn't bad. It isn't something that would be a heartbreaking issue if it broke. The kids would sure enjoy it and most of all that is exactly what matters. I would recommend this for a warm day at the park to keep the kids occupied. I do have to say, I love the colors.
