Smile Biggest Balloon
I thought I could start a thread about your biggest balloons and what you do with them?

For example I have (at the time of writing) a purple Cattex 55" and I am using it as a chair at my desk to write this!

I have a few GL700s and a Cattex 39". I'm mostly just sitting and bouncing on them while inflating other balloons.

My largest ones are definitely GL1200s, although I don't have any at the moment. When I get a chance I want to order 5 more :P

I recently got a 5.5 foot cloudbuster. I just payed on it and humped it while it deflated.

Biggest balloon... I'm going to have to say my biggest balloon is my solid white, 600 gram weather balloon. That baby blows up to a twenty foot diameter when fully inflated & flies to altitudes in excess of 120,000 feet. It truly is a space balloon. I've yet to inflate it because my house of course does not have twenty foot ceilings, lol! Second would be my vintage ML-541A/AM manufactured by the good people of the Kaysom corp. of Paterson, New Jersey. That one blows up to about 15 feet. Its one of the older natural latex weather balloons w that brownish/tan color. I also have 4 white 150 gram weather balloons (10'), 6 red 100 gram neoprene balloons (7'), as well as a red chloroprene 8 foot cloud buster. Funny story... I one day "pop proofed" my room by covering all the sharp stuff w bath towels, blankets and such & covered my carpet with a big giant quilt with hope of inflating my ML-541A/AM. It filled my ENTIRE room, literally, & it wasn't even close to being fully inflated! It was SO awesome being totally enveloped by such a big balloon. It took over thirty minutes just to deflate, lol! Of course I have my GL-1200's, my qualitex 36 inchers, round & heart shaped, but meteorological balloons are my fave. They go through a completely different manufacturing process and as a result they are always PERFECTLY spherical. I'm talking a flawless bubble. And they go through a rigorous testing /inspection process of multiple inflations before packaging. You will NEVER get a flawed weather balloon. They are extremely reliable. Neoprene is also tougher & more durable than natural latex as well as more impervious to gas. They have an all together different smell too. Very sweet and pleasant. ( though the set of 3 foot , red 30 gram weather balloons I bought off eBay, for whatever reason, smell like stinky gym socks, yuck!) It has a very sensual, supple feel too, almost like gelatin but they are tough stuff. AWW, CRAP! As I write this my dad just knocked on my door! My package from Nordic looners arrived & has apparently been crammed in the mail box all day!!! He just said through the door, " Denmark? What the hell is this!? It weighs like 10 pounds!" SHIT,SHIT,SHIT!!! If only he knew he was holding almost $200.00 worth of balloons!!!! Panic attack!!! Ok. I just told him to leave it outside my door...think,think,think! ...Why the hell didn't I request a box, dammit! Alright... I'll tell him I ordered a giant sonic the hedgehog wall tapestry with a landscape of the entire emerald hill zone...he'll buy that. God forgive me...but no harm in a little fib, wink, wink! I've gotta go...sorry for the long reply everyone

That is why I stocked up on balloons before moving back to my parents Now I just have to make them last until I get my own place, although I don't have much time to play with them anyway because of work.

I tend to order stuff in waves. If I'm ordering a bunch of computer parts, I'll also toss in an order of balloons - no one will notice one extra package among 6. Also, I make sure to order from places that ship predictably (quick shipping) and discreetly if there's a chance someone else may get to the mail before me.

Luckily when I told my Dad my little fib he was like, " Whatever... " Totally uninterested,lol! ...on another note...my pioneer brand, yellow 5.5 foot cloud buster balloons came in. I ordered two... I highly recommend them...beautiful balloons. Certainly a lot more manageable than my red 8 foot cloud buster...which just happens to be the height of my ceilings. Not quit an easy task to climb up upon that mother! I'm thinking with the 8 foot one I'm gonna have to be on it whilst inflating...maybe I'll try a laying position & see if I can reach the ceiling & touch it! I'm trying that tonight! Pray for me!!!!
