Re: DIY Custom Balloon Printers of the World Unite!!

The price seems high, but it does include a pump. And it is intended for small...

Re: What brand of 17 inch is this? (My video)

Definitely sounds like an unknown brand from China, but probably one copying the TufTex 17s.

Re: What Balloons do You Currently Have Blown Up?

I'm gonna answer this again because it does change over time.

Currently have 5 (old formula) Tuftex 17" crystals on one side of the living room. They've been up for months. Many months. There are...

Re: Recommendations for a quiet pump

If you don't mind low-flow, an aquarium air pump might be the way to go. You might need to fabricate some adapters, though.

Re: What restaurant/store balloons do you miss the most?

The Toys'R'Us balloons have been mentioned a few times. The ones in the Aussie stores were definitely 16" or so, and it was possible to buy them uninflated. Never recognised the brand they used for...

Re: Encountering overinflated balloons in public

I've encountered a number of people down through the years who simply believe a balloon isn't fully inflated until it has a decent neck. No idea if they were looners, but I doubt it. These people are...

Re: Balloons in Rooms

I always have balloons around. For a while, I used to just have them lolliing around on the floor, but then I got a cat. Now I have them up on the walls and other furniture. Currently, there are 5...

Re: Who Knows ?

My ex knows, or knew. She wasn't impressed but didn't criticise, nor did she indulge.

I think my sister suspects something, as she is the one I told that my balloon collection is out where I can...

Re: Car Dealership

The car dealerships here went to those plastic bubbles on sticks a few years ago. A couple of months later, they were using balloons again.

Not sure what kind of balloons they usually use here -...

Re: The balloons in this HowRidiculous video

I'm guessing they might be from one of those "Balloon Time" kits. Which means they could be from anywhere.

If they were a little more organised and hired a cylinder, then the balloons are...

Re: Balloon Time (disposable helium tank) balloons

I daresay most people would prefer more balloons over larger balloons. It probably doesn't help the increase in volume to fill a larger balloon is not intuitive.

Re: Balloon Time (disposable helium tank) balloons

I think they multi-source them. I've had two of those little helium tanks and the balloons were very different each time. Couldn't pick the brand; but one packet said "Made in Columbia" and the other...

Re: What was this Australian balloon brand?

Belbal's own website says they've been making balloons since 1984, which is some time after that video.

As to what was in that video, unless you were there, I daresay it is almost impossible to...

Re: Song called "Pop the Balloons"

Re: My friend's birthday balloons.

Re: Cool Hi-Fi or TV Gear

Re: Reliable Balloon Sources

Re: Where to buy now?

I wonder if more manufacturers will look at doing retail themselves. I've heard Cattex already do; next obvious would be Maple City Balloon Company aka TufTex.

Re: Balloon Pumps

I really don't know; I've not tried them on it.

To be honest, I don't even know if it can burst an 12" balloon. But I guess ... probably? They are designed to push air through water, after all....

Re: Balloon brands

My favourites are also Unique 16"s and Tuftex 17"s. Both are what I would call comfortably larger than typical party balloons and do last a long time.

The Uniques also have the trick that when...

Re: Do you think car dealerships still do mass busting of helium-filled balloons anym

Car dealerships here tend to leave balloons on cars for days, removing them after most of them have deflated, burst, lost their loft or been filched.

Re: How to get a balloon to lift you up in the air?

Not to be flippant, but the best way to do that is to hire a hot-air balloon.

Mythbusters have a fairly famous 2004 episode where they tried to see how many 12" helium balloons were needed to lift...

Re: What do you miss?

I definitely miss the old Bluebird punchballs.
I miss the amazing variety that older online sellers, like Kaboom, had.
I miss scoring bargains - I'm sure Q36s used to be much cheaper.

Re: Printed Balloons with Looner Messages

Always loved provocative balloon prints like that.

Mellyloon used to sell 16" Uniques with the print "Don't stop until it pops!".
