Re: UK Poundland Beach Balls

Urgh those foam beads... on a photoshoot once at Uni we were using a transparent "36 ball filled with those beads, and someone thought it would speed up the packing-up stage to cut a slit in the ball...

Re: Has Anyone Seen This Video?

I popped one of those by accident; they look nice, but it's twice the number of seams to fail...

Re: UK Poundland Beach Balls

Yeah... I've thought for a while that the glitter filled toys are the least practical inflatables; the innevitable pop is just so messy. As for who's buying them, I'd guess it's targetted at the 20...

Re: UK Poundland Beach Balls

Out of production, I gather. Very annoying... it's not like those Jumbo beachballs could have been that uneconomic to sell, with looners mass-purchasing them! Seriously, despite how quickly any...

When less was more?

It's been a while since I posted anything on here, and apologies in advance if the following turns into a bit of a stream-of-consciousness post!

I was having a bit of a sort the other day, and...

Re: PVC Inflatable backpacks/rucksacks

I can remember the fad for these in the late 1990's, and it seemed about the least practical application of the 90's "everything colourful inflatable!" craze. A few of the girls in my class at...

Poor-quality Pounland (uk) inflatables this year

Previously, Poundland was a gift to the British looner, when it came to inflatables- particularly the Jumbo beach balls. Large, stretchy, surprisingly resilient to damage, traditional 6-colour toys...

Re: The oldest/vintage clips... how long ago was the first inflatable fetish vid?

Lexi on Southern Charms, that was it. Before I was able to buy vids, but I remember having some stills shots.

Been getting nostalgaic for the designs of the toys too, looking at old clips.. when...

Re: The oldest/vintage clips... how long ago was the first inflatable fetish vid?

Cheers for the responses, seems to have stirred a few memories!

No idea when vinyl/plastic inflatables came in. I've seen a period photograph from Edwardian times of a beach on the Isle of Wight,...

The oldest/vintage clips... how long ago was the first inflatable fetish vid?

I found an old dvd from when I was first getting into the fetish, and I got to thinking about how in the late 1990's, early 2000's, there was a fair bit of balloon content online, not much...

UK Macdonalds balloons

Noticed at the weekend when passing that the local branch of Maccy's were going a bit mad with the balloons... and possibly a closet looner on their staff- I noticed the ones being given out at the...

Re: UK- Poundland Jumbo Beachballs

Well I live in West Yorkshire, three of my local branches have had inflatables out on the shelves starting last week; though I'm not sure if they're clearing old stock leftover from last year, or if...

Re: D and l toys back in business!

I was curious about this; they're ebay site seems to have just been listing mechanical parts for a while now. I wondered if they'd lost-out to the likes of Beachballs.com.

It's a shame because...

Having said in the first post that stores were not stocking them, low and behold... my local branch here in Yorkshire have dozens of them...

Re: UK- Poundland Jumbo Beachballs

I suppose it makes sense with the ID then, they have to cover themselves.

Agree with the comment about the soft vinyl. Unless you actively try to puncture the beach balls they can take a lot of...

Re: UK- Poundland Jumbo Beachballs

The normal packs of punchballoons are naff, they inflate to a very small size and a rubbish shape. They do however sell in packs of 2 some 'light up' punchballoons which inflate to a 'proper' size,...

UK- Poundland Jumbo Beachballs

One for the UK looners on here (of which there seem to be a fair few of us!)

My local Poundland, due to the lunatic way global capitalism and stocking in retail now works, has already started...

Re: How tight do you make a beach ball?

The best real-life pop I ever saw was this with a "20 inflatable football at a party, whilst at Uni. It had been blown-up until it was about "30 and straining at the seams, and it was cold in the...

Re: So Many Damn Leaks!!`

I totally understand- I was trying to point out that, from (slightly depressing) observation, most 'normal' people treat inflatable toys as one-use items... I used to be a popper, I freely admit,...

Re: Intex Mega Pegasus

Re: Intex Mega Pegasus

That does look amazing. Wonder how durable it is for 'everyday' use?

Also, being Intex, why isn't it utterly smothered in warning labels ;)

Re: How tight do you make a beach ball?

What's sad is that the picture just shows what that beachball would have looked like 15-20 years ago, when Intex "48 beachballs were actually "48...

Impressive bit of overinflation anyway, is it...
