"I ordered this for my granddaughter's first birthday. I wasn't expecting a lot in quality of materials because of the price but since I would only be using it once I took a chance. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package. It is quite durable and stood up to wind and rain (it hung outside the party house). It held up extremely well even though it got beat up by the weather. It was shipped as a roll in a nice solid triangle box to protect it. Since it held up so well, I'll be putting this in her memory box."
