Re: Anything new with beach balls lately?

Do they make these transparent balls in 42 inch? For me this size is right on; 36 inch is good which is most of my balls, but 42 is just perfect, 48 is just a tad too big. :(.

Re: Your best experience

About six or seven years ago, a discount store about seven train stops north of where I live was about to shut down, and they had 64 inch inflatable bop bags discounted from A$12.95 to A$4.95. They...

Re: Qualatex 24 on ebay

Good point, I have two bags of Onyx Black Q24s left, that I bought about three years ago, but they are useless by now, they suffer from windowing and pop before reaching half size inflation. I...

Re: Preserving beachballs

The first thing that comes to mind is temperature fluctuations. I don't know the climate where you live, but here in Sydney Australia we get very hot summers and bone cutting cold winters. As I...

Re: D and l toys back in business!

I made a number of orders from them last year and my experiences have been mixed. My first two orders were for a large amount of 36" blue / red / yellow, and 36" blue / red / white balls. They were...

Re: There's no place like blowup dolls!

Like wise here, they don't do anything for me either; this is more to do with the material they're made of rather then the shape. However saying that, I do love the sense of playing with something...

Re: Musings of a PVC looner for the forthcoming summer of 2018

I know Benjy, I would have liked to have purchased a bundle of their XL inflatable watermelon balls, but AU$50 each was absolute highway robbery. The transparent half of those balls was made of a...

Re: How tight do you make a beach ball?

I'll inflate not just my beach balls, but any PVC inflatable to a rock hard state. With my life-size inflatable bat-mans and spidermans, they're great when they are firm and stiff. I just have to...

Re: Musings of a PVC looner for the forthcoming summer of 2018

Fair enough, as you're more into matte material, I thought you'd have an easier time as 90% of the stuff now is in that finish.

I've just come to the realization that it doesn't matter what...

Re: 4' Inflatable Football

Anyone near Molalla OR in United states? D&L Toys gone belly up?

Re: HUGE inflatable penguins from Aldi

Thanks for the heads up, just quickly checked the website, unfortunately none of those do anything for me. Plastic looks more like canvas, and the shapes are not all that interesting. :(
