Default The longest time you have had a blown up balloon
I like to have balloons around and I had a balloon which lasted about 6 moths inflated, it was a light blue 36" incher, it popped because I got a bit too excited when it squeaked loudly after a session and I was placing it on my wardrobe, I started to pinch it more and more until its demise. Poor balloon, it was really stretched and soft.

Usually I untie mine so they don't get overly stretched in time, though sometimes I've struggled and left some. I've had a 16 incher hidden away that's slowly deflated over what is probably a few months, I think that's my longest surviving inflated balloon.

Hmm, not sure about inflated. I've kept some larger ones (GLs and such) blown up for months at a time before, but I'm not sure exactly how long. Nowadays I usually just deflate them for later.

Probably not more than a week or two. I never tie mine, always just twist the ends, so I always get the itch to add more and more air later on.

A month, however it was just a normal balloon nothing special, back when I was 14 it was one of those balloons on the plastic sticks you get from the mall I managed to convince my mom I wanted to take it home from sears had the logo on it, its great that nobody else touched that thing, I would take that thing into the washroom with me when nobody was looking and then when nobody was looking I would put it back under the kitchen table where everyone in the house knew it was how ever didnt care to get rid of it. That balloon stayed well inflated for a while it was still shiny but then my sister found it and ran it over with the vaccume cleaner for fun. I wish i knew what kind of balloon that was it really did put up a fight against the vaccume cleaner. The vaccume cleaner had to bite it three time before eating the balloon.

Maybe a month or 2 with a China 36". It just popped out of no where in my room, probably from oxidizing for too long. It was a great riding partner though.

A green "happy birthday" balloon when I was a kid. Lasted something like 6-7 months I believe. I remember hugging, probably squeezing it a lot too.

Sometimes I'll leave a Tuff-Tex 17"er or a 24"er inflated to roll around my carpet for days at a time...depending on how much i go back to playing with it, sometimes the balloon can last for weeks before it will finally give in

Speaking of which, I think I'll go & blow up a TT-24 right now & leave it inflated for a while & see how long it will last! I'm gonna be super tempted to loon with it so I'll give it a couple days at the most
