I needed this for a display at my sons' school. Slightly concerned at the reviewers that said their one had holes in but mine was fine:I blew it up and left it for a couple of days to test it and it only deflated very slightly. On the day it stayed well inflated. The flag that goes round the shoulders had all stuck together in the packaging and some of the print came off as I peeled it apart so I didn't use it, but that kangaroo itself was fine. Looks quite tacky but then that's the point :) I was pleased with it, the kids (and parents) found it amusing so it did the job it was intended to.
