Post Reliable Balloon Sources
I thought I'd share my list of balloon sources for whoever needs them.
  • Kaboom Balloons Importers - A US based online balloon shop. They have balloons from all over the world but they tend to be more expensive than others.
  • Loonerworld [EN] - eBay balloon shop in Germany. They often have auctions on special items. Their stock tends to vary, check back often. Low prices, specialized balloons (e.g. zeppelins, mouse heads) tend to come with clips.
  • Balloons United - Another online shop in Germany. Has a lot of special balloons in stock, and with good prices as well.
  • Cattex Balloons [EN] - Balloon manufacturer in Italy. Makes lots of special balloons such as GL500, GL700, and GL1200 balloons, as well as gigantic round balloons and dolls. Very good prices as they make them.
  • Balloons World Store [EN] - Italy based balloon store. Sells direct from Rifco, the original manufacturer of the GL series balloons (they discontinued the GL1200 however - it can only be found from Cattex now). Very good prices, and usually fully stocked.
  • Dekoballoon [EN] - A small Germany-based online balloon shop. Note that prices include a 19% VAT that only applies to EU countries - if ordering from another country this does not apply.
  • BubbleXL - A balloon shop in the Netherlands.
  • Nordic Looners - Good prices, discrete worldwide shipping - an online shop by looners, for looners. Based in Denmark.
  • BargainBalloons [CA] - Good deals on common balloons (spherical 5" to 36") as well as prints, accessories, and some special balloons. Has a US and Canada site.
  • Tilly Balloons - Considerably downsized from the original company they were, they now sell a lot of their original balloons - large rounds and their signature 'worker' balloons - on eBay. Made in and ship from the USA.

If anyone else has other sites I missed, please reply and I'll add them!

Unfortunately not. The closest one I know to Canada is probably KBI, but most of the sellers I listed ship internationally. Take a look and see who will cost the least for you.

I've ordered from Loonerworld before, they were great. Great customer service and reasonable prices. I was going to order from Cattex, but my order came to about $40 Cdn, and shipping was $60 Cdn.... Maybe a smaller order.... I really want to try their doll.

The original list appears to cover Germany, Italy, Denmark, U.S. Is there any online shops in UK? Shipping cost makes the balloons quite a price, especially if you don't want to order a large quantity.
There are supermarkets & party shops but that means face to face with a cashier.
Any ideas for us in the UK?
