I morely play with inflatable toys than balloons, but still, I do feel sad when they pop, yeah. Mainly because it always happens at the least expected time. Plus I try not pop my inflatables, so it makes me sad when one of the ones I really like pops underneath me. I had this big inflatable pony from some old plug-in TV game (I only ever bought the inflatable pony part, not the plug-in game it came with), and I really liked it because it was such a big inflatable, and so cute. One day, I got it nice and inflated, straddled it, and BOOM! It popped. It hadn't overinflated it, and I had been playing with it for months. I guess all the times I rode it down as it deflated just wore out the seams. But yeah, I was pretty sad about that one. Same for when my first Intex Gecko (I bought a second one later on), my Intex Happy Dino, my first Jet Creations Baby Tiger (I bought a second one later on), my Banzai Pink Seahorse, and my Digimon Agumon (Ivhave no idea what company made it) all popped.

I'm not phobic or anything, but I'm usually not a big fan of popping. Because I can't do anything with it once it pops.

I'm fine with popping sandwich bags or those little air bags that are used in shipping, but I don't like to pop my balloons, although it happens sometimes.

When a balloon pops accidentally it scares the daylights out of me , usually enough to make me take a break if not stop playing altogether. I can pop them intentionally without much grief provided they aren't inflated too tight, I'm wearing headphones, or are under a bed cover and muffled. Last night I was blowing up some 7" balloons really big to help myself get comfortable with balloons at their limits, and one I had blown up to the max (grossly overinflated with a very tight neck, could barely knot and one more breath probably would've burst it) popped suddenly when it touched the floor. I was wearing sound isolating studio headphones and playing loud music and even still the pop was very loud and scared me terribly.

I hate popping. I am just blowing up some balloons for my wife's birthday using the electric pump. One teal coloured belbal 14" has just popped at about quarter of its capacity and it's totally thrown me to the point I have taken a break. My hands are shaking and I've only blown up 4 and I was going to blow up about 20!!

I also have a big pop mark on my forearm! I hate being so scared of the prospect of popping!

What is a good electric pump I could buy to pre-inflate balloons? Not looking for anything fancy, quiet and convenient would be perfect. Curious what people use.

Hi there, as you can see I'm a popper (sorry if my name offends anyone) I had a question for everyone here. I was reading this thread and it seemed like there was a general consensus on two different views on popping. It seems like for some, popping is a genuine fear. For other's it seems like they just prefer their balloons inflated instead or popping. I know everyone had a different view on balloons and I respect that, but am I right about what I'm observing?
