"These 2-sided balloons were so cute at my daughter's 2nd birthday party! Got lots of compliments and all the little kids wanted one. This picture was taken over a week later (no judging me for all the party supplies still on the dining room table...)"
"This balloon is HUGE, just like everyone says, and it was SOOO cute too! Just be aware if you're planing to buy a disposable helium tank to blow up your own balloons that this monster will take a LOT of helium. We ended up having a few less latex balloons than I'd planned and I'm glad we blew this one up first instead of last! I like the other reviewer's idea of having Party City inflate it. I'll do that this year if we get a big "3" and save our helium tank for the smaller ones."
"This shirt was just as pictured and has held up well over a few washings since my daugther's birthday last July (2010). The stitching and fabric are intact with no fraying or holes. The monkey has faded a little bit, but it just looks like an old favorite shirt now. It's certainly no less cute! And it is one of her favorites too. She's been eyeing that thing all winter. Anytime I pulled the clothes bin out from under her crib, I heard "monkey shirt!" over my head as she looked down at it. She was so excited to wear it the first time it was warm enough! I did get it a size bigger so she could wear it this summer too (since her birthday is so late in the summer), and it still fits. It was definitely a little big last summer and fits about right this year. I think I bought it before there were any reviews on the size. Doesn't seem too wide to me though."
"A really cute monkey that stands up on its own and can be dragged around the house like it's holding hands with your kids. Got this for my daughter's 2nd birthday party to go with the monkey plates and accessories. The thing is still nearly fully inflated almost 8 months later. Durable too, because it held up well to my daughter playing with it regurlarly for the first couple months. You'll have this for many parties to come."
