Not sure why amazon have classed this as a toy as it would be pretty dangerous to let a child play with it. As a party decoration though it does the job. Good that it is waterproof. I had it outside in the rain all day and wiped it down so will be good as new again next year. Only problem I had was when I opened the packaging I just pulled the top off and at the same time ripped about 4 flags half off the string. My own fault but thought it worth mentioning so others don't do the same.
