Your very own inflatable Groot!

Inflatable characters are not a new thing. They have been out there for years now. All vinyl and you blow them. Well DGL Toys have taken it to the next level with their Inflate-A-Heroes.

What makes these different from other inflatables is they are plush on the outside! 

DGL got the Marvel license and of course with Avengers: Infinity War coming out soon, it made sense for DGL to put out characters that are in the movie. We got Groot and he’s just awesome.

As I said before, Groot is plush on the outside. There is an inflatable bladder on the inside that you blow up. DGL was wise to include a foot pump with these. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cursed companies for not including these pumps.

You simply unzip the character’s back. Attached the hose to the pump and the bladder. Then you just pump it up. I had it inflated in less than 5 minutes.

This Groot looks great. Stylized cartoonish look that is very kid friendly. 

The hands and feet are slightly weighed to help the character stand on his own. When he’s fully inflated, Groot is about 30″ high. Perfect size for just about any kid.

It’s really the plush on the outside that makes this toy special. Groot is just so fuzzy!!! I love it!

My son has had a blast with Groot. Wrestling and carrying him around. He’s my son’s new buddy!

This is a seriously simple, but fun toy. I can’t recommend it enough.

You can find the Inflate-A-Heroes at most retailers and online stores.

Many thanks to DGL Toys for sending Groot to us to take a look at!
