This item turned out to be slightly different than the Fan ta sticks I had seen before - also ordered from 4 imprint. Rather than mylar type of material, my item was made of a heavy rubber. They had a valve to inflate, raher than a self seal adhesive opening. This made it harder to inflate , especially for young children and the elderly. The item was packed with stips of paper separators, which were inconvenient to unpackage. Finally, the pricing was high. While I am likely to do business with 4imprint agaiN, I am unlikely to buy this item.
