We puzzled over how to pump this up when it first arrived but what you have to do is pull the white stalk completely out, pump up the hopper using one of the attachments and then push the stalk back in. You won't break the hopper by pulling the stalk out but if you don't remove it you won't get the thing pumped up! Just thought I'd share that because it would have been useful advice when we got ours!

I am so pleased with this toy. We purchased this for our nephew's birthday, he loved this more than all his other presents! so did his parents who seem to spend more time on it! Excellent value for money and great fun.

After reading a couple of bad reviews about this space hopper I almost didn't buy it but I decided the odds were in favour of it and to go with the reviews written by the people who were happy with it and I'm glad now I did. I bought two of these space hoppers for my grandchildren for Christmas so I thought it wiser to open them and test them now in case there were any problems. I can't see any problems at all with either of them and they look exactly as the picture shows them. I had no bother with the valve and the seams are perfectly ok and not leaking any air. Now its just a case of waiting for Christmas to watch how much fun I know my grandchildren are going to have on them :)

As previously mentioned, you need to be a very small adult to find this suitable.
Whether a misprint or warped perception of size, this is NOT an adult spacehopper.

Example of size : 5"1 girlfriend struggles to fit on it ...

This retro hopper was a present for my nephews 6th birthday, he is tall for his age, the look on his face when we started to pump it up was priceless all his friends wanted to go on it even us adults had a turn we had so much fun and laughter with this. It is very sturdy and bright it shows that sometimes the old toys can give as much pleasure as the new up to date xbox games a lot of fun had by all. I recommend this hopper and I will use this seller again.

Having read the negitive review on this item, at first we was slightly put off. We thought we would take a chance and see what we got. When we received this it was not the origional 70s vintage design but a retro influenced replica. We were pleased and thought it was good value for money.

We ordered these for Halloween for our Pub at short notice. We wanted them for a pub spacehopper race for a mixture of kids and adults. They arrived, all in individual boxes showing the same size on the box. Everything looked fine as packaging was good and them seemed to be ok at a cursory glance.

However, when pumped up (not an easy task), all were completely different sizes. Varying from VERY VERY small, to small, to medium. The small one (middle one of the three in size) had a broken valve and was therefore useless.

We inflated them on Halloween afternoon, so obviously did not have chance to return the items before needing to use them on Halloween evening for our evening of events. We wanted to use these items again, but won't be able to as the quality of the items was poor. One will be binned as it is no good at all.It is unlikely we will use the other's again.

We haven't returned to the seller as we have used them on muddy grass for our Halloween races, and I honestly couldn't be bothered to get into an argument with a seller about the state of their return.

I would not recommend this seller. Anyone who dispatches products that all vary and none are the advertised size is obviously not managing their stock properly.

Dont rate this at all I bought it for my niece for christmas she went out onto the lawn on boxing day started bouncing on it and it just burst which it left a big split on the bottom of it, I had one of these in the 70's and the quality was no where near as good as it was then.

My eleven year old was desperate for this and although I was dubious about its quality at this price, it has survived the bounce test and is still going strong. Not as big as we thought, but fine for children, definitely not the adult size we were expecting.
