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.

                        Bought this for my grandson's first birthday party, loved how it looks real on the wall. Nice and bright, perfect for hanging on the wall very light.

                              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.

                              We had an international cruise theme for an 8th grade dance and we used these as wall decorations. They hung with tape just fine because they were light weight.

                                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!

                                  I used this as the "Bikini Bottom" sign for my daughter's Spongebob Squarepants birthday party. It was easy to personalize with paint. It's also very lightweight, so it hangs well on a wall, and a great prop for taking photos! I also love that it is made in the U.S.A. - a rare find these days!

                                  The product looked good and was easy to hang since it is very light. Previous reviews had said product was on the flimsy side but I just needed it for decoration purposes. It worked out great, I would not give it to children to play with for they can easily bend and tear.

                                  I was so surprised by the size of this - even though it listed dimensions. This was just what I was looking for. What a great product for such a great price!

                                    I used it for a carnival float. It's ok to use if you have no other choice. I just expected a better quality
