Default Competition Time #2 - Size matters!
I just found this wonderful thread from Katielynn:
https://blowtopop.net/showthread.php?t=19093
If I find a 12" balloon, I will definitely participate

But let me also start another competition jus for fun. I would be happy if someone would like to participate

The rules are simple:

Blow up a Unique16" balloon to its maximum size (it can also be inflated multiple times in a row). Whoever reaches the largest diameter (please measure it ) wins the game. Of course we want to see a photo of it too

I'll try my best tomorrow and then upload a photo. Good luck to anyone who wants to try it

Warm greetings
zman21

Just remove the portion of the link before the https part. They accidentally have both http and https, and you just need the latter.

Unfortunately I won't be able to participate in this due to not actually having any Unique 16s at the moment, but I doubt I'd win anyway. More than content just seeing the submissions.

I try to attach a picture this time. I hope it works (itīs my first attempt here )

My Unique16" balloon had a diameter of 53cm. Unfortunately I was too chicken to blow it bigger... Some of you might do that better

Have fun

Now that's a good sized 16" Unique!! I have a few plain U16's and a lot of Balloon Buddies-print U16's. Have fun!

Oh thanks a lot!!! The U16 changed a few years ago and have not been quite as soft and stretchy since then. This might still be from the old batch. I'm sure it would have been even bigger if I had been a little braver

Thank you, I also liked it No it didnīt pop. I think there was still some room left for more air. Maybe next time


@Semipopp, @BalloonFun, would you also like to participate?
