We used these life preservers as decorations on the tables for an "Ahoy It's a Boy" Baby Shower. We also used one for guests to sign in. They were the perfect size and weight. I would have preferred them to be wrapped in tissue or plastic inside the box. A little bit of the red color rubbed off on the inside of the box. I order five so they were stacked and only the top one was rubbed off a little. It was a great purchase! I will definitely purchase from this website again!

flimsy

It was far more flimsy then I expected. Although it looks good from a distance the moment someone brushes by or wants to touch it it wrinkles and falls down.

                    Great prop, very festive looking! It's a little bit flimsy, so be careful handling it. It looks like it could bend or rip easily if not handled with care. But most likely, it will be hanged on the wall, so it should be fine with minimal handling. Good value for the money.

                      I did not read the description. It is not a 2 sided life preserver, but a flimsy one sided plastic shell that one could hang on the wall as a wall decoration.
                      I would recommend this product to someone who would be using it for such a purpose, but now as a prop for a stage show.

                        I looked through several different catalogs to find these life preservers. I was so happy to finally find some but I wasnt sure how they would last. I used these life preservers in a nautical banquet. I took fish net and hung them from towers. They did great! Larger than I thought in size too. I will be able to use them again for other banquets because they came in a great box where I can store them safely. They can be used for several different things and I would recommend them to anyone.

                        We used these life preservers as decorations on the tables for an "Ahoy It's a Boy" Baby Shower. We also used one for guests to sign in. They were the perfect size and weight. I would have preferred them to be wrapped in tissue or plastic inside the box. A little bit of the red color rubbed off on the inside of the box. I order five so they were stacked and only the top one was rubbed off a little. It was a great purchase! I will definitely purchase from this website again!
