About this item

Description



Book Synopsis



The very first of its kind, this miniature Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy is the perfect desktop companion, tiny marketing tool, or hilarious gift!

Finally, the joyous dancing tube man -- who's been featured everywhere from Ricky Martin's stage to Broad City -- is available in a tiny, desk-friendly size.

  • SPECIFICATIONS: 18-inch waving tube man with fan in base to make him dance, wiggle, and shake just like the real thing (batteries not included)
  • PERFECT GIFT: A hilarious gift for every birthday, white elephant party, or holiday!
  • INCLUDES MINI BOOK: Includes 32-page mini book exploring the larger than life (and utterly surprising!) origins of everyone's favorite flailing arm man
  • MANY USES: Bring a little bit of joy to your desk, dorm room, or bedside table
PLEASE NOTE: This product can be powered by a 9-volt battery or by a specific AC adapter. (Battery nor AC adapter included with purchase.) Please read and follow the instructions included in the box to ensure optimal performance.

If using a battery:

  • A rechargable Ni-MH battery is recommended for best performance and is a more cost-effective alternative to a common Alkaline (single-use) battery.
  • If using an Alkaline battery, it must be NEW. Refer to product information sheet included in box for recommended brands.
  • DO NOT use a Carbon-Zinc battery (often labeled "Heavy-Duty"). This type of battery cannot produce enough power to operate the motor.
  • To get the most life out of the battery, use in intervals no greater than 5 to 10 minutes. Operating in this manner will yield approximately 45 minutes of use.
  • If your tube guy begins to get stuck in a downward position, it is time to replace the battery or recharge if using a rechargeable battery.
If using an AC adapter, it must follow the below specifications:
  • Input: AC 100-240V (50-60 Hz)
  • Output: DC 9V (1A or 2A)

The power of the fans motor isn’t strong enough to inflate the material causing it to get stuck a lot regardless of if you use a plug or a battery.

This does not flail around. It just inflates, and sticks up straight. There is no movement other than that. The fan inside seems to be too strong.

At first I didn’t think it was working right, but we switched to an energizer battery and it works a LOT better! I had to put him on my office desk haha.

Terrible. Doesn’t work - doesn’t blow the guy up enough to work and the battery is so uncommon. Doesn’t come with a cord either even though there’s an option for a plug. Pass on this.

This toy is terrible. It does not wave and will burn thru a 9 volt in 5-10 min. Thats not sustainable. Do not buy even as a joke

Casey - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
The fan doesn't blow had enough to inflate the dude. Tried with a DC plug and it was even worse than with a battery. There's nothing sadder than a flaccid tube guy.

I ordered two for gag gifts and could not get the screw out of either one to open the battery compartment using a tiny Phillips head screwdriver. Sent them back. Too bad because I thought it was a fun little gift.

Do you not purchase if you are a fan of actual full-sized wacky, waving inflatable tube guys. This functions nothing like the real deal. The fan has no fluctuation so the tube remains constantly full of air and standing erect. Such a bummer.

I can’t tell you how disappointed I am in this product. Immediately after installing a brand new 9V battery, the device shorted out and died. Opened up device to see that it is exceedingly shoddily made. I didn’t expect much or a long life from this novelty product, but did expect to work for at least 5 minutes. The outer box was a little hard to open and in my excitement of receiving it, I tore the packaging which I expect will prevent me from returning this and getting my money back. Save yourselves and do not purchase.
