About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The people leaving low reviews are rediculous. Its a toy, not a professional advertising. Also not meant to be run continuously, although could be with a power supply.
Yes it makes a noise when its turned on...its a fan...moving a fair ammount of air. Do you complain about your hair dryer being loud?
Its great, cheap and works well. Just buy it.
Firstly, I believe many of the problems people are having with power is due to the fact that they are probably not using the correct adaptor. Not all adaptors have the same output/voltage and when I tried one that was lower than what is recommended I experienced what others have said here. Basically little to no movement, flopped over, etc. Once I put a brand new 9v battery in the guy came to life just like the real deal. So please check the paperwork included and compare it to the label on your adaptor before using it; just because it fits doesn’t mean it’s correct.
The booklet was also a fun read - I enjoyed learning about where this guy came from and how he gained in popularity. Needless to say my son is ecstatic...currently he’s sleeping with his “balloon guy” right next him.
This would be getting all 100% reviews if it moved 10% more air. With a BRAND NEW, NAME BRAND battery it'll go pretty good, but as soon as I realized I'd be frequently using my hand to stand him up the love affair was over. It simply does not work properly. Thus, 2 stars is all I can give.
And I'll thank the 'holes who post & say that people with issues should stop crying since it's only 'A Toy' and was only '12 bucks'- Screw you, I paid for something that should work properly & you have zero right to dismiss my or anyone else's review, so get off your high horse.

I feel the problem is not that it uses the battery quickly, but that the battery has a higher output when it is brand new, then after a handful of uses the battery has maybe dropped to 70 or 80% but it isn't outputting the same amount of power that it did when it was brand new, so basically the flappy man blows up and just sits there, no flailing about like you would expect.
Honestly, if I was a rich man and could afford to replace the battery after a few uses, then this would be awesome. But I'm not. If you're thinking about buying this as a one-off novelty (which let's be honest, that is what it is) then make sure you get a good brand of battery and just don't expect it to run for very long.
Er wabbelt und wackelt und er hat Arme. Sehr kameradschaftlich!
Will be expensive to keep up to
and finish of product is poor
I saw the other reviews saying this and figured i'd still give it a try, just don't. All that happens is the fan makes a huge noise but no air circulates so he just hangs there limp, like my hopes and dreams
Wobby du bist der beste, eindeutig ein Freund fürs Leben.
Edit: my Battery ran out so I chose to buy an AC adapter, fortunately you can change the voltage on this AC adapter 9V is too much for the fan, it's so much air that the tube guy cannot dance, turning the voltage down to 7.5 and it's enough for the tube guy to dance properly
I hope you found this review helpful! x
