^ NYC didn't say what he did with the balloon (i.e. sitting, or what) - but I've had one of those inflated "reasonably well" not TIGHT but probably 80% full, and some serious bouncing with my 190 pounds didn't bust it, so...yeah they take weight surprisingly well.

What's even sweeter is having TWO of these inflated, arranging one on top of the other, and humping. That's more than "only" twice as much fun as using one balloon.

Oh yeah, I'm ceaselessly amazed at how much abuse they take.

As for the cashier question if somebody's nosy, once I told the cashier something like "We're making a short film, and we need a few big balloons as one of the props" and that entirely worked, lol.
Party city is decent. I didn't put it on the list because I've been focusing on stores that sell balloons exclusively - especially ones targeted at looners.

In the US at least, I can order them from Amazon (try searching for Maple City Rubber, they're the parent company for the tuftex brand), otherwise many of the shops in the list ship internationally (but it will likely be more expensive and take longer). I'd recommend Balloons United or Nordic Looners, both stock tuftex.

Face to face is fine. Write down your needs and put them on a clip board. Then it looks like you are buying for the company marketing guys. Some real pleasure to be had in the face to face world.

I agree orders from Germany are pricey (especially for us non poppers) I have got over 250 from Balloons United still including their own logged balloons. Had to buy so many to justify the shipping cost.

Great concept. A clipboard does help in making it look like you belong in certain places. I'll have to try that sometime.

I usually just buy stuff locally, since I like the smaller balloons. I'll just go to a place like Walmart and buy a bunch of random things I need, and the like 5 packs of balloons. Self-checkout, of course.
