Just had a very premature pop on a blue one of these - when I was blowing it, at maybe 18", if that. Bought it maybe 1-2 months ago. And here I'd thought I'd have a fairly tame night.

Default Re: Walmart 36"
Ok lets run down through my experience

I have about 12 Walmarts within driving range, only ONE, has the 17 inch and 36 inch


The 17 inch are (sometimes two)three per package are around 1.95

The 36 inch are one a package for about the same price..

Balloons are made by BSA, while i have heard that they are made by Tuftex (Maple City Rubber) i don'd believe so,

1. Tuftex are much much softer

2. Tuftex have a much different smell

BSA's are much more professional loons meant for car dealerships, to withstand the elements and are a much more robust balloon. The latex has to be thicker, but comes with a caveat

Since the latex is thicker its a bit more difficult to neck and over inflate (after repeated inflation's its possible) Even after stretching the balloon may become too weak and pop

Still i have tried them and they are fun, and they sell out at the Walmart i have been going to, it seems everyone there loves big balloons

So how may you find it at your local Walmart?

Its more of a hit and miss ill explain

While the typical Walmart party section has three aisles with the standard 12 inch loons.

The one with the 36 inch loons have a more expanded gift/party sections look for at least 4-5 aisles, and the balloons will not be group together with the standard cheap 12's they will sometimes be in a section with themed part items, such as Baby Shower/Frozen/Spiderman, and will be mixed in.

Fun facts-They also sell 15 inch Mickey Mouse ear loons (just like the ones from disney but only black) made by.... Pioneer Worldwide (The company that owns Qualatex).
Most of the 12 inch loons from walmart are Party Mate/ Blue Bird (budget brands from Pioneer National Latex Corp)

Hello, My Fellow Non-Poppers,

I have recently purchased from Walmart quite a few bags of Unique Industries 36" Latex balloons each bag comes in a quantity of 6 pieces. I had visited my local Walmart Super Store to look for the Unique 36" Balloon but sadly they are only available online.

My favorite way of inflation is Helium !!!!! The 36 inches are huge much bigger then Qualatex 36" The price is $12.99 for 6, not bad. Buy them and try them.

Happy Inflations,

Chip

I just got 6 of those 36 inchers and will be testing 1 or 2 to see if they can hold my weight. I bet they will be able to do it since it is likely sturdy.

Walmart.com currently has a 6 pack of white 36" Unique balloons for $9.99. Seems hard to go wrong at this price if they really are made by Unique.

Hello All, I have purchased quite a few packs of 36-inch Latex Balloons online at Walmart.com:
They are the "Unique Industries" brand
Latex Round Giant Balloons, 36 in, Assorted, 6ct at $12.99
They are soft and durable. They inflate really well with helium and they get huge.

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Latex-Rou...d-6ct/32102489

Enjoy and Happy Inflations

You will want to look through the listing information to ensure that Unique is listed as the manufacturer. They are also offering 36" loons from a company called "PMU" which is a NY-based seller that is apparently offering their own brand of loons. These will have a shipping cost added to them regardless of order size while orders filled by Walmart.com will drop the shipping charges once you cross the $35 minimum spend.

I have had a number of the dark blue Unique 36" balloons over the last few years hold up very well to large inflation AND rough use. I'm a non-popper and they will routinely give me many inflations before they will fail. I do sometimes use a hair dryer to return a well-used one back to its original shape and size before putting it away.

I've recently ordered some of the Unique in Linen White and Powder Pink to see how these other colors will perform and I've also ordered a pack of the PMU balloons that are fulfilled by Walmart.com to see what they're like.

I've also ordered a three pack (multi-color) of 24" balloons to see what they are like as these are Unique brand as well.

I ordered some “PMU” balloons from Walmart. The shipping was very slow . Walmart contacted PMU and told them to ship the order or refund my money. I received my order or 12 balloons 36” and they were qualatex

Hmmm, I never knew Walmart sold 36 inch, but I have seen some 17 inch in more recent months. Are those basically just repackaged 17 inch BSA?

The 36" are sold predominantly online (although certain stores may have them on the shelf).
