I got this for Christmas, and it is too fun! It is very easy to fly, and I like to fly it right up to my 2 year old daughter, who likes to hug it. My older kids also love to fly it around the house.

I got it filled at a florist. It is pretty big so it is hard to handle when full of helium, so I brought a bedsheet with me to the florist--I wrapped the sheet around the filled blimp and carried it by the four corners of the sheet, which also helped weigh it down until I got it home. If you let it go before attaching the gondola, it goes up FAST! We have really high ceilings, so (after learning my lesson) I tied a piece of fishing line (cut from a line included in the set) to the gondola, and now if it's stuck on the ceiling I can just reach up to grab the string. For extra weight, to achieve neutral buoyancy, you put pennies in slots in the gondola.

The 9-V battery for the RC controller was dead, but I had some new 9-V batteries. The battery that goes in the gondola is a strange size and non-rechargeable, but has lasted for a few days so far. I'm sure I can find a new one at Radio Shack or something when the time comes.

Well, when you buy low you sometimes get old stock. This is what we received. The 9 volt battery had corroded, and the 3 volt battery was dead. Add about [...] to the price of this blimp, because you'll likely have to replace the batteries upon arrival. The seller holds that responsibility, but the manufacturer is the one who created a balloon that has motors that won't power the craft downward. As some have indicated, it goes up and stays up. It's truly a fun concept that my 9 year old became fascinated with after watching Pixar's "Up." They have a blimp in the movie. This, however, is a big mylar balloon with underpowered motors. The lights, though, are very cool, and all being said, he played with this for a few weeks. Honestly, it was inexpensive to buy, it is more durable than I would have thought, and my son enjoyed it anyway. I just wish the batteries had not been leaking acid into the styrofoam when we got it.

A Kid's Review on June 8, 2005
This is the most fun toy ever. We went to Party City and got the Blimp filled up and brought it home. Then the gondola goes on it. I coudln't wait to turn it on!

The best part is the lights! You can switch the lights to different settings from the remote control. It was so cool because me and my friends flew it around my house at night and scared our parents LOL It was funny. I didn't try the other blimp yet. It comes with 2 blimps that you can change back and forth. It's really easy to control except for if there is a fan on cause that make wind and it's hard to control.

I love this blimp!

A Kid's Review on December 31, 2008
I am 8 years old and I just got this. It is great to play with! It takes you about 20 minutes to learn how to fly it. I haven't tried the blue blimp, only the UFO. It took some work to get it to balance correctly with the coins inserted in the slots. We ended up using some foil in place of a coin because the coin made it either too light or too heavy, no matter what coin we used. The lights on it are really cool. Great toy! You won't be sorry you bought it!

I bought this blimp for my grandson's birthday, and it was a big hit at his party! It was so easy to use. All his friends had a lot of fun with it, we should have had more than one.

Warning, use indoors or in "no wind" conditions.

They're not very durable and avoid very sticky tape, but we had a lot of fun building and deploying these toys!
They went together easily and worked as designed. They're vulnerable to any wind though and care should be taken when using these. The motor's not very powerful and any wind is likely to send it off course.

We used tape and string to bond both balloons together for added lift and hung the "helmet" camera from the gondola for a neat video!
