What you get+-
Meet Rhonda Rhino! She brought a pretty balloon to the party. It's on a wrapped pipe cleaner string so it's flexible and sways in the breeze - just like a real balloon!
She'd make a great birthday gift for a friend - or a cute decoration to use at every party celebration in your family.
