These inflatable zebras were amongst the first large animals to be made for the mass-market in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Intended purely for decoration, these inflatables are made of thin but very soft "old style" vinyl and have only a light reinforcement under the neck and along the back They are one chamber designs with normal pinch-valves.
The lots available here are the Gen. 2 and 2.5 made by JetCreations. Both are finished in smooth, satin-matte vinyl with balck screen print. The difference between the two is primarily that on the Gen. 2.5 the slightly larger valve is located on the inside of one of the rear legs. The material is also different from the Gen 2, possibly already a phthalate-free vinyl but soft to the touch.
The product comes sealed NIB with colour boxes.
