  1. I find it interesting that you have to beat up on Inflatables to promote the idea of blow molds. Also, you can only see inflatables at night? Check this date time photo out http://www.twistedvegas.com Why bash other things?
  2. Looks like Gemmy is releasing a lot of new items for Christmas this year. Going to be hard to make some choices. Already have more than we can put out.
  3. Looks good. I Think we are going to pick up a couple more this year to add to the display. Thanks for sharing!
  4. You can use what they call "Rip stop Nylon" to make inflatables. Also look at the Nylon they use for making wind breaker jackets. You can get both at most any major fabric store. My wife uses it to patch ours.
  5. I have to admit, I love the products I buy that Gemmy makes........ BUT I buy them knowing that either they work or they don't. If it does not work right out of the box I take it back. I never plan on depending on Gemmy for any type of service. They don't stock parts, they don't have inflatables or lights at their place in Texas. If I can not fix it myself I part it out to repair other Inflatables. Because we have over 150 Gemmy items we just live with it. We do our best to buy most of them after the holidays at a discount and test them right when we get home so we know what
  6. Most inflatables have a C-7 in them. We have changed most of ours from incandescent to LED but have found it is hard to find a bulb bright enough to light the big ones up. It works but you will need to figure out what C-7 LED is bright enough to do a good job.
  7. This is common when packed away with moisture in them. Set them up, run them so they are dry than wipe them out with a wet cloth and mild detergent and they will be alright. Something like a weak solution of dish detergent and you will be ok. Keep them running once you are done until they are completely dry.
  8. You have to do what works for you but I personally am not going that way. I don't like the flatness of cutouts myself. Each year I have a puffy die but since I have over a 100 of them I can't really complain that much. Most of the time I just fix them and move on.
  9. I have 18 Solar Yard lights. I love them BUT!!!!!! They don't last all night in most cases. I have some of the better ones that in the summer will last about 8 hours. In the winter time they don't last long at all depending on where they are in the yard. They don't get as much sun so they cut way back on their time at night. Some of them less than two hours. That is what you would have to deal with. Just how much hot direct sun they get during the day.
  10. Yep, that is a great deal for anyone in that area. We have one and people love it.
  11. On the top right of the page where your name shows click and go to your profile. Then on the top right of your profile click on "edit profile". Then on the left go to the "signature" area and edit what you want shown here.
  12. There is still one on Amazon There are some on Ebay also. Found some even cheaper on HSN Different name but appears to be the Gemmy product. Looks just like the ones we have.
  13. We have 21 of them in our display for the last two years with no problem. Once they drop that price more, which they will we plan on adding about 20 more.
  14. As you have now found out, it is all about the smiles! Good for you and thank you for making many people have a great Christmas.
  15. We went to Lowes and Kmart here in Vegas yesterday. They did not have any inflatables and almost out of everything else. Ended up buying nothing.
