Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trumpette Howdy Bouncy Rubber Cow, Pink (Baby Product)
My 15month old daughter loves this toy. It is just the right size for her to step over and sit on. Bouncing on it is her favorite part. The cow is adorable and a very attractive toy for the little ones.
Only one problem. It doesn't come with a pump, and even the ones Amazon recommended at the bottom of the screen aren't enough. We have two different hand air pumps and neither one can get it pumped up enough to be stable. My daughter has had the legs of the cow crumple under her several times now. We've tried everything to get this cow to blow up enough. I guess we're just going to have to put it up until I can get something more powerful to blow it up.
I recommend some kind of electric bicycle pump because a hand pump is not going to get this thing fully inflated enough to be stable.

We just took ours to the gas station air pump. We did the same thing with my wife's exercise ball when she was pregnant.

I guess the package contents have changed within the last 2 years, as we just got this for our 21-month-old daughter, and it came with a dual-action pump.

My daughter just received this for her first birthday. It did not come with a pump, but the directions seemed to indicate that it should have. It was very frustrating to try and figure out how to pump this up. I had a small pump for a soccer ball that was able to pump it up 3/4 of the way, however it burned up the pump and caused shoulder pain;) I guess I'll try taking it to the gas station.

I ordered a purple cow from this site in March '14, no pump was included. Luckily I had a bike pump to use.
