Default Balloons you can't order anymore
Gone:
Gayla - Jelly bean
India - balloons > 30"
Q24
Q16 (soon?)
Punchballs - neon 24" size. Not sure I can find anything bigger than 16"
South America 24" (just hard to import, see below)
RCR Products 20x36" and 24"

Also gone, added from below:
Malaysia 30" (I think 36" too)
Everts 18"
Everts mouse ears?
Q16 clear sprays


Still around:
Cattex 32" / 36" long neck
Czermak & Feger 22" long neck
Tuftex 24" / regular neck
Chinese 30" (very thin / tear shape)
Cattex R32 (very round/no neck)
Party City 24" (I think these are Amscan. No neck)

Seems like they are getting rid of lots of them over the years, and some I probably didn't know about or forgot.

Q16's aren't being discontinued at this stage, they are still listed on the Q-tex website. Q24's and SA24's are rare, but pop up from time to time.

Don't know who made them, but Kaboom used to sell 30" balloons from Malaysia. I only got a few before they stopped selling them but would love to have some more. They had this fat tear-drop shape instead of being round. Now I'm wondering if the "Chinese" 30" are actually the same... Hmm.

SA24s aren't discontinued or planned to be discontinued, but they're produced in Argentina and none of the stores are importing them.

If you have an address in Argentina, you can order them from here.

Q16 clear sprays haven't been on any sites in a couple years. Wish I had gotten some, they were pretty.

Are Everts mouse ears still made? I have some but they are too old and have degraded, all pop when I try inflating, even ears first. They were nice soft squishy and see-thru when new.

I did get some Party City 24s - they are available in clear! If you like a completely round and bouncy balloon, they are perfect.

Just realized the infamous Q24 isn't for sale anymore, for a while now. That's really a blow to the community

Still got like 8 fresh ones left of them, so I guess I'll have to use them carefully...

Just when I discovered the looning community on the internet about ten years ago, they were the jelly bean balloons. Just when I wanted to get some, they were discontinued. Would have loved to have tried some jellybeans, but ul well.
