This review is from: Aeromax Boys Super Soaking Fire Hose with Backpack Child (Toy)As most have said, and I would totally agree, this is a cheap Chinese piece of junk. Really is sad what you get for your money anymore. Nonetheless, we bought one as a gift for our son's third birthday being prepared for this thing to snap in two at any moment. The concept is adorable and he loves to put his fire boots and jacket on and stomp around the back yard putting out 'fires.' You can easily get a good 20-30 foot arc of water out of the pump too. The bad: the bottom of the tank where the hose plugs in is not accessible by human hands, so you're forced to try and seat the firehose onto the tank nipple without actually being able to reach it. Thus, the toy leaks right out of the box. The overall feel for the toy gives you the impression that any part of it could snap at any minute. I could totally see the pump handle snapping in two with a boy who might be a little more aggressive with his toys. Pathetic...and the reason for the 1 and 2-star ratings on the toy. High on FUN for the little guy but low on QUALITY/DURABILITY.
