    Soft/Stretchy/Thin 12 inchers?

    I have a real soft spot for soft, thin (but good latex), stretchy 12 inch balloons that blow up nice and big and pop fairly easily. Easy to blow up, easy to pop. They tend to remind me of the balloons that first triggered my fetish, plus I love the feeling that they could burst at any moment. Basically Unique 12's before the formula changed in recent years. I feel like even among cheap party balloons I struggle to find balloons like this lately! Any recommendations?

    I am exactly the same when it comes to this. I actually like the Wal-Mart brand 12” balloons. They blow much past their rated size and aren’t overly thick.

      I used to like the old Fantasias, but they changed the formulation to 'helium quality' and were never as nice. Nowadays, they are just resellers of Uniques

        I agree with your sentiment, love soft balloons like uniques and quality chinese.
        I can't help you with US recommendations but Aussies reading this can go to woolworths and get a bulk pack of colour mix for cheap that are good fun (i'm borderline shilling at this point)

          I'm the same buddy. 12 inches that blow up bigger than rated size, and stay soft when necked are such a turn on. I found some nice ones on Ebay last year, I think they're chinese, (they were sold as unbranded) but when I ordered more, the balloons that came were clearly different...firm latex that barely reached 12 inches before bursting. The nicer ones could easily reach 14 inches after preinflating once.

            I don't understand why we can't buy balloons like this. Besides 'adult' use, I'd think there'd be a huge market for easy-to-blow, easy-to-pop balloons for children to play with. Everything now seems to be a decorator balloon that is stiff and shiny and takes a lot of effort to pop.

            The best I can find is take 12" unique or qualatex and blow it until it almost pops. Then either leave it inflated overnight or repeat the process 3-4 times. After it is stretched out, it will behave more like balloons I remember growing up.

              Totally agree! I appreciate all the suggestions - nice to hear others enjoy this type of balloon too. Maybe I will give those Walmart ones a shot. I have a batch of Chinese made balloons from Amazon from the Prextex brand that are actually quite nice, but it seems to vary by batch.

                I have found this to be true only of the American-made Walmart balloons. The ones that are made in Mexico are quite firm. They are of good quality, and I use them to decorate, but I don't find them to be very good for play. The American ones on the other hand soften up quickly with some good squishing.

                  I also like giving balloons that are easy to burst to my guys to bust for me. Theres nothing less sexy than watching a man get excited to burst a balloon but quickly get frustrated or bored because it wont explode.

                    Only have experience with Kalisan 12" in crystal colors.
                    After the first blow easy to blow up and on second inflation quite soft even if they have a good neck espacially if you wait a bit when they are inflated.

                    If you want to b2p them they unfortunately they get quite tight towards the end though.

                    I tried Cattex 10" in crystal colors too, they are also quite easy to inflate and seem to stay quite soft until they have a good neck.
                    But towards the end they get quite tight too.

                      To tell the truth I don't need the "helium quality" for that five or ten minutes... For me it's more important the ease of inflating and popping...

                        Try these. They are quite thin, soft and stretchy.

                          Wow! They're the balloons I found on Ebay last year. They are incredible balloons
                          if anyone gets some preinflating to max once, then deflate and inflate again. They can get to 14 inches that way.
