    Do not buy this!!!!!

    Although the instruction booklet included was very well written, the application could not be tested. The balloons were dried out and were not able to inflate. The air pump included put a hole in the ones that were not too dried out. I bought this for a child, and his excitement soon turned into disappointment. I would not recommend purchasing this to anyone. You can get a better value (all ways around) at your local toy store.

    Balloon Art not so easy.

    My six year old picked this up and was excited at the idea of making her own ballon animals. The instruction manual was pretty good considering I was expecting book with mostly illustrations on how to make ballon art. It started with details on specific material needed to make great balloons. As I was reading aloud my daughter was pulling open the bag of balloons and attaching them to the pump which is provided. I made it to page 18 basic techniques and by this time my daughter was yelling she that she could not inflate the balloon all the way with with the pump that was provided. So I attempted to inflate the balloon myself following the instructions on how to blow up the balloon and I was also unsuccessful. The pump provided is exhausts you before the balloon is completely inflated, or the balloon develops a small hole. I managed to get the balloon inflated halfway and attempted to tie a knot when the balloon popped. We were both frustrated and gave up before we even attempted to make a balloon animal. I do not recommend this balloon making kit mostly due to the parts provided being sadly inadequate to make anything. Your better off buying just the book and searching for your own pump and balloons. The instruction manual itself is very informative and comes with many different examples of different balloon art.

    Pump Useless, Balloons of Questionable Quality, Book Looks Informative

    The pump in this kit looks cute but won't do the job. Blowing up the balloons by mouth proved impossible (and I'm a trombone player with good breath support!). Also, of the three balloons attempted to blow up by mouth, one had a hole in it. In short, we never got to find out if the book's instructions were any good. The book did have cute projects in it: dragonfly, stegosaurus, dachsund, dog, cat, daisy, airplane, horse, parrot, palm tree. The instructions had many diagrams that seemed to make sense. Overall, the kit is a good idea poorly executed.

    Cheap

    The book that comes in this package is a good beginner book for new balloon animal makers, but the quality of the balloons and the balloon pumper is very disappointing. The pump is extremely cheap and doesn't work too well, and the balloons received in this kit all popped before I could even start twisting them to create an animal.

    PIECE OF JUNK!!!!!!

    This is a piece of junk, do not buy it. The Pump was gumball machine quality. It wouldn't even start to blow up a balloon. The balloons were garbage. Every one we attempted to use tore, even blowing up by mouth (since the Pump didnt work).
    The book was mildly informative but all of the directions included are easily found free online.

    DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

    The product did not deliver on the promise - HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED.

    We bought 2 of these from B & N for the promise of fun. One for our daughter and one for a birthday gift for a 5 year old. Each recipient used the gift under the supervision of parents so age of the recipient was not an issue. The quality of the little balloon pump was terrible as it was not strong enough to pump the balloon. The balloons kept slipping off the pump. Even when we could get the balloon to stay on the pump, the pump itself did not put enough air in it to sustain the balloon. Without an excellent working pump, the balloon art kit is useless. You can't do balloon art if you can't blow up the balloon. It doesn't work without balloons?! The type of balloon can't be pumped up by mouth. It would make any normal person pass out just to blow up one balloon as we tried. We also heard the same feedback from the recipient of the gift and ended up having to buy another gift to make up for this one that "failed to deliver". We loved the idea but the product did not deliver on the promise of fun balloon art. We were highly disappointed with this product. Please redesign with a higher quality working pump and then we can see if it is fun at all. Thanks.

    Look Elsewhere

    Leave this kit in the store. The book is what I was looking for. A simple balloon art instructional manual. The kit is a waste of product. The "pump" is complete junk, and the included balloons are worse. Half of them do not inflate due to product defects. The rest of them are too cheap to actually work as intended. Interestingly enough, the book warns about the purchase of cheap products. <BR/>The book is nothing special, but it is informative, and will work as a starter if you throw out the balloons and pump and buy them elsewhere.
