One of the sides of the "paddle" was barely stretched at all, while the other was clearly stretched.
No idea if it's considered a defect, or if you simply have to pay a bit attention and stretch it or squeeze the air over "to the other side" to make it inflate evenly.

If noise is a concern, I'd recommend using one of those large handpumps meant for air matresses or inflatables. It's a bit of work, but it's better than blowing big balloons up by mouth.
This is what I've been using sometimes: https://productimages.biltema.com/v1...-330_xxl_1.jpg
Do you use a valve with the pump or is it possible to use the pump on a balloon without one?
