From an adult perspective Aug 20, 2010
By Freddy Flume
I'm going to switch things up here and speak on this toy from a purely adult perspective. I'm 28, I have my own house and pool. I don't have kids. I bought this item for myself.
Often times through the summer I'll have parties or at the very least a few people over at all hours of the day. The pool is constantly utilized, but I wanted a game that people could play when they were in there and I settled on this one. I thought it would be funny to watch any inebriated folks try to stay on an inflated log and smack people around with the batons. It would end up being more entertaining from a 3rd party perspective than as a participant as I will explain in a moment.
When the product arrived I was worried because it's plastered with pictures of little kids. My immediate fear was that it wouldn't support a grown adult frame. I'm 6'2" 210 pounds after all; I'm a far cry from the 40 pound whelp on the cover.
These worries might have directly affected the next little caveat because in my fear that the floats wouldn't support my weight, I might have over-inflated them a tad. And by "a tad" I mean a metric crap-ton.
So we get the bulging floats out into the pool for the first time and everyone is ready to go. I toss them out there, jump in the water and try to mount the log immediately. This is where things got crazy. First, it's REALLY hard to stay on these things, inebriated or not. It's a sub-game in and of itself. It got to the point where I would use my world famous turtle ploy and just focus on covering my face and hunkering down while my opponent wailed on me. It was a formidable defense because in their fury to batter me in what they thought was a moment of weakness, they would over extend and constantly fall off (that's a pro tip to all you would-be log combatants out there). The only problem is if both people go turtle style and you end up sitting on a log staring at each other, but I digress.
The second problem, and really I should have made this the first problem because it's a big one, is it absolutely destroys your balls. Like no joke. The kids aren't alright. I see now why there are children all over the box. Not because it won't support adult weight but because it's really uncomfortable for anyone who's testicles have descended. These logs tried to make my outie into an innie. It's hard to stay on enough as it is, balance wise, but this adds a whole new dimension as it also becomes a groin trauma endurance game.
I collapsed the floats a little, thinking the overinflating was the problem, and it helped a bit, but for the most part it was just something you had to live with. I used these the first time with 3 guys and 2 girls all attempting it. The guys all struggled, but the girls had no problem at all. In the end we made it work and had a good time though. And I've used them multiple times since then.
But it's just ... ya know. Something to think about.

Kids played for hours! Sep 14, 2008
By L. Mindel
I bought two sets for my son's birthday and the 18 (yes 18!) 9 year olds loved it. It takes a bit of practice to balance on it, we found that if you don't blow the logs up all the way it's much easier to balance. I would recomend this toy.

Great Toy but ...... Dec 18, 2007
It is a great toy for a good price but my only complaint is that it keeps on deflating after using it for a couple of hours. However, the best part about the toy is the "boppers" which my brothers and I use both in and around the pool.

It's ok. Aug 28, 2010
Not made for adult males (kind of painful) however, I'm sure kids will have a ball. It may last one swim season.
*update* I was right, it lasted one summer. It is funny as ever watching adults and kids trying to mount the log....priceless.

Good, strong, durable and the children love it! The price point was a factor and was far less expensive than a retail purchase.
