    We purchased four of these for school events. Our first use was at our annual Year 8 Graduation. They were the perfect size, super easy to pull out and pack away and very light with great storage bags. They will definitely be well used in the years to come. Love the cultural designs. A wonderful company to deal with, super friendly and efficient.
