Default Party City 24"???
Was driving by a party city this weekend and saw a woman carrying (well holding and almost being carried off) 3 HUGE white helium filled balloons. I went into the store to try to find them but could not. Checked out on their website and they have 24" balloons. Anyone tried them? Are they any good? Anyone order from party city these balloons? I was shocked to see them coming out (and quite turned on)

Dude those are my current go-to balloons their soft when you break them in they get to 45 inches (or more I was scared it would pop) but you have to blow them up several times to get them to be HUGE. Ive laid on them for a night and if you get several of them together and lay down on them it feels like a GL

Looking at their website, those balloons look too round for my liking. Looks like they won't neck out like the Q24s.

Ah, those 24's. Despite having a nonexistent neck, those Amscan 24's get huge when deflated and reinflated a couple times. Used to be my go-to giant balloons between when Q24's stopped production and the first time I bought longnecks off BU.

Don't try necking them, as the neck will rip off as you stretch it, but after a few inflations the balloons will get huge. I pump popped one after the neck ripped off of it and it git well over 50" before popping

They're party balloons, designed to be filled with helium :P

They're fun for mindless bouncing, and remarkably strong even above rated size (which they easily exceed if you stretch them). I inflated one until it felt somewhat tight and kept it around. Soon enough, I found myself inflating it a bit more and found they tend to keep going and going...

The colors are nice, too. They have no necks, but they're great if you're playing around with a partner.

I'm not sure that they would float with helium unless you pre-stretch them, but I have very little experience with helium balloons.

You Americans are sooo lucky that helium balloons is easy to get there.
Here where I live you seldom see helium balloons because helium is so expensive here.
If you eventually see some it's usually foil balloons which doesn't turns me as much as the latex ones. And they are usually also ridiculously expensive.

I used to work at Party City (2016 and 17 Halloween seasons) and managed to swipe a few both times. I've only seen one at rated capacity (it had helium in it and they let me take it). I use them for purposes outside of this fetish so I don't have much experience with inflating them beyond that.

I like how they tend to be more round than similarly sized balloons though.
