These are the anti-Q24s. No neck at all, but tougher otherwise.

I ordered some of these on Amazon and I have to say, I wasn't expecting much but I'm impressed.

Yes, they don't get a neck and are the "anti-q24". As someone who still has some Q24s left, these two cannot be compared. The Party City balloons by Amscan are really just a smaller version of a Q36 or Unique 36. Completely round with no neck. A little bulge if you want to get technical but nothing resembling a neck.

For me, that's something I'm completely ok with. A neck doesn't matter to me whatsoever, I don't get any further satisfaction from riding a necked balloon or riding a completely round balloon. I inflated a TT24 and an Amscan 24 and compared the two the other day, the Amscan gets a little larger than the TT24 and is much rounder. Both were inflated to approx. the same tightness and I was counting my blows like Katielynn and others have talked about in the past.

The only really con about these balloons is the price, I don't know what they are in Party City but they were decently expensive on Amazon. TT24s are cheaper where I can get 10 balloons for $12 or 25 balloons for $29. The Amscan were running 4 balloons for $6.93 or 25 balloons for $32.19. Not a huge difference but when you're ballin' on a budget like me it helps.

Lastly, I think I prefer the Amscan to the TT because I live with roommates and I don't like squeaking balloons drawing attention. The TT balloons squeak LOUDLY where as the Amscan's hardly squeak even when inflated to size. Just my two cents but wanted to let you all know.

I completely agree that the party city 24s are Q-36s in the miniature form. I definitely prefer the Tuff-Tex 24 to the party variety. They feel & smell better imho. But that's not to say the party City 24 is a bad balloon...it can hold it's own

I’ve used the party city 24” balloons quite a bit and they are awesome! I’ve actually accidentally blew one up so big that it popped on me and scared me half to death

With all these glowing reviews, I might have to swing by my local Party City and grab some. The only problem is finding space for them, my balloon stash is already pretty large - I'll have to do some popping I suppose!

I've come to really love the Party City 24". Something that isn't pointed out enough is just how well they can take being over inflated. In the attached pic one of the balloons is a Party City 24" and the other is a 36" Unique (inflated to full size). I didn't use any tricks (like baking) on the PC balloon to get it to stretch- just several inflations and giving it time to sit at a bigger size. The most surprising thing is the PC 24" not only got up to 36" but it was STABLE at that size. It sat for hours and didn't burst.
