Default A rather peculiar looking pool toy
I found a strange looking whale ride-on from Swimline on Amazon. Here's the link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...O18ZYGJY&psc=1

Here's a photo from the page:



Thoughts? Should I buy one? I've never seen anything like it, so I'm quite tempted.

Well the title says it's 72in, but the description of the toy says it's 60in. Nothing too huge.

I just saw the link....strange how the description isn't consistent
But I definitely like the colour, for sure
A cool inflatable nonetheless

Well, Swimline products are *usually* good, from what I've heard. I know for sure that I'll get some when I can. They might make good collectables, who knows what they'll go for 50 years down the line.

Are you sure that they'll last 50years and you'll not be tempted to use them before with the inevitable burst. It's only a kid's float. Be careful Isn't that a child/minor in the picture?

Who said I'm gonna ride it? They're just great to have around, not necessarily to ride. Sure, I might end up riding it a few times, but I know how to be careful. I have a whale right now (although not a transparent red one) that I haven't properly ridden yet, the weight limit is too low and I didn't it until after I bought the whale. Besides, if I do get one I can perform some surgery, reinforcing the toy from the inside with strips of vinyl and some adhesive if I really want to ride it without breaking it.

Trust me, I'm a religious non-popper, I would never even dream of destroying a perfectly good balloon or inflatable, so I'm super careful whenever I have one.
