inflatable stuff tends to last at least a summer. though you should be able to get a few years out of it if you take care of it which we didnt
i actually dont want one at all, as i know that by the time i have it all set up, the kids will be bored of it. just stupid practical reasons like that.
course i would love to have a friend who had this, and could go visit her after she had set it up!
If I had one of those I'd be able to see into the every garden in my street before I descended, whooping, into the pool below. Downside would be that everyone in the street would be able to see me in my swimmers, which wouldn't be a pleasant sight.
Kids would be entertained for about 10 minutes then troop indoors to spread out the toy car collection (again).
On balance, I think I'll leave it in the shop.
