"I will start by acknowledging that this was a huge hit at my son's 4th birthday, and it looked awesome in the pictures. However, it began falling apart almost immediately, and we were very careful with it--and I didn't let my son handle it at all. We ended up having to tape it to get it to stay put for the party. I was hoping for something a little more durable for $40. I think $20 is a reasonable price for this."
