The concept of this product is really good and it works for us by keeping the kids interested in the fruit and making sure it is not bruised by the time they get to eat it.
However, I am disappointed because the protective outer layer needs to be inflated by self (similar method to blowing up arm bands) and is finicky. Maybe I am doing something wrong but ours nevers remains inflated - like it has a slow leak or something.
On the plus side, regardless of the deflated outer area the fruit remains protected and there is a handy area to label with your childs name - so great for school. I would still recommend it because my son likes it and as a result will eat apples!
