I bought this as a surprise to prank a friend which I plan to do and it's going to be awesome! So far, I haven't had it out in the pool, but I tested it and inspected it when I got it last week, and the one I have is a good one. I inspected it and found nothing wrong with it, no holes, no rips, no nothing wrong with it. I've also looked into this flamingo as a backup for my toucan float because I found out that Intex only made the toucan float for their 2016 collection and that they aren't making it no more. So, I've looked into the flamingo because I heard that inflatable floats that are in the shape of flamingos are the most popular floats people are buying and so I decided to look into it and thats why I decided to do that too. It is very big and wide, but the toucan is a bigger than the flamingo is. But I don't care, as long as the float is big enough for my entire body to lay on, then I'm happy!! Thanks Walmart and Intex!
