Takeaway: HUGE float, fun in the pool! A bit dirty out of box and small leak in mane (repaired)

UPDATE: I did locate the leak in the mane and used the repair sticker to seal it, which is holding up for now. We'll see if it lasts the whole summer.

The float is made from a heavy-duty vinyl and the float weighs 8 lbs (un-inflated). It comes with a small patch of vinyl repair sticker that can be cut to size and seal leaks in the float. Out of the box mine had a few dirty black smudges on it, but those wiped clean with soap and warm water.

The float has five inflation valves: one for the main body near the tail, one on each wing, one on the neck, and one on the mane. You need some kind of pump or air compressor to fill this float. The fill valves are sizeable, and I was able to use a 1/2" rubber hose with an electric balloon pump to fill it up quickly (~8 mins for all 5 sections). The valves each have a leak stop seal that prevents air from escaping, so you can fill in intervals through the black plastic piece. To let the air out, you just pull out the stop valve and the air escapes quickly as you press to deflate the float.The unicorn is really big when fully inflated and measures 9 feet from nose to tail and has a 10 foot wing span. It's about 4.5 feet tall and the raft portion is 5' x 4'. The raft can fit more than one person but you have to be careful to not damage the wings as they are only attached by a few strips of heated sealed vinyl. The white part of the float tends to pick up stains easily if you set it on grass of dirt, however, if you clean it quickly, it'll wipe off with a little bit of soap and not too much scrubbing. The one part that leaked on mine was the mane on the back of the neck, which thankfully doesn't impact its ability to float.

Deflating the float took about 5 minutes which is really fast compared to deflating a raft through those tiny beach ball valves. Overall, the float worked fine; it was quick to inflate and deflate and was really fun in the pool, although it takes up a lot of space. The leak in the mane was from a tiny manufacturing defect (a nick along the cut seam), but it was repaired quickly with the included fix tape. So far the rest of it seems to be leak-free. Even though it seems to get dirty easily, it wipes clean with some soap and warm water.
