My daughter loves this balance beam. The colors are just as vibrant and beautiful as the picture and it is very durable. When I first open it up and laid it flat, it was a bit uneven at the middle bend, but once my daughter stood on it it straightened out and we had no other issues with that at all. Not even after folding it up to put it away, then taking it out again. It also has a bag to put it in to take it with you or just to put it away securely. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends; and anyone really.
