I bought this for my two year old grandson. After opening the package and blowing it up with the included hand pump, it was ready to go! I placed the donkey (I guess) on the floor with my grandson and he stood there just looking at it, not sure he knew what to do. He picked up the pump and tried to fill the donkeys ears, nose, belly, back and tail with air.. hmmm.. I picked him up and sat him on the back of the donkey showed him andto hold the ears that's all it took, he was off bouncing. He loves it. It's made of a thick rubber material and seems like it will last for sometime to come. It's simple but two year old entertaining. Recommend for simple fun.
