"I ordered this for my son's 5th birthday party. It was a Star Wars theme so we had Darth Vader "greeting" the guests as they came into the restaurant party area. The kids loved it, they were taking pictures with him and then at one point, they started hitting him but he held up really well to it all. In the pictures he actually looks like someone dressed in a costume so it was worth the money. The price isn't bad but the shipping is a little high because it's an oversized item."
