"I bought this product as a party favor for the boys at a princess and knight-themed birthday party. The swords are quite large and were a lot of fun, for the girls and the boys - at least, the ones that we were able to use. I bought 7 and we were only able to use 2. One popped while we were blowing it up and the other 4 started leaking air from one of the seams immediately, rendering them useless. We had to go to the dollar store to buy something else for the boys to have right before the party. At any price, a favor should last at least a few hours, but at $3 a pop, they really ought to be much higher quality than this. What a disappointment."
