A great toy, very big, very sturdy and incredibly cute. A must buy. It is pure fun in the water. Lying on it in the peaceful ocean is like lying on clouds. If the waves are rocking it,its like surfing. The vinyl is not rough but very smooth so you cannot harm yourself at the seams. Has two air chambers for safer play(The main body and the fluke). Depending on lungpower takes 4-8 minutes to inflate.

I have several ride on pool animal toys and my kids and their friends all prefer the whale. It holds up well under their rough play and is easy to get on and stay on. This toy has the handels which is a plus. I have bought this item for others. You wont regret getting this pool toy.

This whale is so much fun I got it for when my sisters kids came down. They had a hard time staying on it though but it was fun for me. It was such a hit I have two now they got one for me before they left saying now you gots two so next time we come you can ride too. Overall great, strong, and fun:)

This is a great toy and not as difficult to master as people seem to think. I agree that the picture of the product is deceiving, but for different reasons than most are stating. The picture shows the kids sitting on the back of the whale near the dorsal fin; this is impossible in the water and you will surely tip over. The picture was obviously taken out of the water. The whale inflates in 2 parts, the upper body and the tail inflate separately thus creating a pocket where one can sit and hold the handles like handle bars on a chopper. Once you figure that out, it's fairly easy to get on it. You have to hop on from the back. If you try getting on from the sides, it will tip. The girls in the video are 10 and they got on and off and rode without issues.

The whale was a huge hit and everyone was asking where to get one. Had I known it was going to be so popular I would have taken more and let all the kids ride them. At this price-point it makes sense to get more than one. It was ridden hard for many, many hours over the 3 day Memorial Day weekend and it neither popped nor lost air. This is a very good buy and you should get one(some) for Summer pool fun!

I got it for the grandchildren and they used it for about 10 minutes and then it has been sitting every since.

I'll bring it out Monday for the older kids and see if they like to jump to it.

I almost gave it one star but I don't like to use that word.

Kids love it. My cats fear it. I can now rightly claim I have a whale in the pool. What more is there in life?

I let the grandkids each pick out an inflatable pool toy and one chose this one. The other two choices were the Intex Friendly Shark and the Intex Lil Penguin. Of the three, this is the only one with enough weight on the tale for the kids to actually ride it. As such, it created quite a ruckus when all three wanted to be on this one.

I don't imagine it will hold up long but I deflated it after three days of use and will bring it back out on their next visit.

This thing is awesome! My friend's dad got 2, one for her and one for me. We went to look at the store, and they were completely sold out. I can see why they're so popular!

First off, this is one HUGE inflatable whale. It doesn't look like it from the pictures, but it's taller than me (I'm 5'11). Second, it's just cute! It has such a friendly face! As for durability, both mine and my friend's have held up pretty well so far. It can support me just fine. It is a little difficult to get onto the whale's back the first couple of times, but once you figure it out, it's easy to do.

I recommend this product to anyone who wants a fun, durable, and massive pool inflatable!

This was a birthday gift for our daughter and she loves it. It is more durable than I thought it would be. She has a lot of fun with it.
