Re: What elese?

The last couple times I have traveled for work, I left balloons inflated in my hotel room for a few days before I decided to replace them with new ones. At home it is impossible for me to leave...

Re: Qualatex 16 being discontinued?

They will not disappear altogether. They are used too heavily by decorators. Finding prints is going to be hard because most of them have been discontinued. Staffing and supply chain issues... It has...

Re: Longest You’ve Sat on/Bounced/Humped Balloon for

I've gone a couple hours sitting on balloons without popping. I double stuffed a couple Q36 hearts the other day and it made an extremely comfortable chair.

Re: Balloons in the background of tv episodes or movies

I was watching the Gray Man movie on Netflix and towards the beginning of the movie there is a big fight scene in a sea of balloons from a NYE balloon drop. The Man from Toronto has a pretty long...

Re: Movie or TV show scenes that caught your interest?

Netflix show "The Good Place" has a few episodes with balloons. All of them seem to be Q16 fully inflated in giant helium bouquets.

Re: How to inflate loons with huge necks

Shop vac. Large volume of air output and you can usually get different sized hoses and nozzles. If people come over, it doesn't look out of place in the house. Try reusable zipties for securing the...

Re: Long term Balloon Storage - Tuftex 17

Since Tuftex were originally sold as outdoor balloons, my personal opinion is that they were designed to degrade faster because they expected some of them to go free. I've rarely had them last for...

Re: Confession Time

For me there was some thrill attached but it was more of the anticipation of what I was going to do with the balloons once I got home and not the act of taking them. I would only take them from...

Re: Theory about the downfall of Qualatex

Re: Balloons in Rooms

Re: Balloons in Rooms

Only on the occasions that I travel and then I will leave them inflated in my hotel room. Not possible at home unless they are from a party and my kids want to keep them around for a while.

Re: Car Dealership

The last balloon I asked for from a car dealership was a 36" Tuftex. I was there late at night (after work around 11p) and asked the security guard/employee and he didn't care. Last time I saw any...

Re: Colors of the Mickey shaped balloons at Disney World

Those big mouse ears were used by Disney for the LA Pride parade a few years ago. I emailed Qualatex about them but never got a response. I've also emailed Qualatex about a 36" deco bubble to be able...

Re: Best durable balloons for bouncing?

With a new balloon (as in brand/size I've never tried before) I take them to tight with just a hint of neck and then I let a little bit of air out. Then I slowly put more and more of my body weight...

Re: Help sit popping bigger balloons

2 methods.

Inflate the neck quite a few times so it stretches out then inflate the rest of the balloon.

Blow it up way larger than you think and it will start to get a neck on it. Did this...

Re: Qualatex discontinued balloons that you want back

Clear with hearts. Pink with hearts. Pink with Love and filigree. Red with happy Valentines day. Red with daisies. On the Q24. The happy birthday swirl around Q16.

Re: Any Good U.S. Balloon Inflators?

I've used an Intex Quickfil for years. Works great for larger balloons. For 11" and smaller, I have a cheap Amazon dual nozzle one. Works great when doing decorating. Heats up a bit when trying to...

Re: Question about 17 inch, trying to identify brand

In the first video the balloons are all under inflated or are using an odd mix of helium and air. They way they are flopping in the wind isn't right for a fully inflated helium balloon. That pink...

Re: Heat shrinking

Re: How Often Do You Pop ??

Recently? A lot! Mainly late at night at work. Can't get myself off, but been doing a lot of popping. Maybe a bit of Spring cleaning?

Re: TT17 formula change?

I've had the opposite with mine. The 17" don't seem to be as firm as I remember and get quite large. They are a little over a year old so they might just be growing due to age.

Re: Help sit popping bigger balloons

I've talked about it in a few different threads here, but I strongly recommend padding of some sort. I had an overinflated 24" Belbal pop unexpectedly as I was sitting on it. Dropped me straight onto...

Re: Qualatex discontinued balloons that you want back

I definitely miss "fresh" Q24's. I still have quite a stash of them so I don't miss them yet. My "Love/B-day" prints are deteriorating pretty fast. Might just need to have a big popping session with...
