You're doing it wrong then. I've blow to pop some large beach balls and rings which went boom so loud, next time I saw my neighbour (our houses are detached), she asked if I heard the explosion the other night

Intex Dolphin (new white version) x4
Intex Whale x3
Intex Shark (Purple) x3
Best Way Whale (Black) x1
PuffyPaws Wolf x4
PuffyPaws Sea Dragon x8
Fyaryuu (White) x12
Fyaryuu (Red) x11
IW Whale (5m black) x2
IW Whale (5m blue) x3

Full disclosure though, due to size constraints we probably won't inflate/use all of these at our party even though we will be bringing them to the place. The only ones I know are definitely being used as of this moment are 4 Fyaryuus (2 red and 2 white) and 2 Sea Dragons because they have been incorporated into 1 of our planned games.

Idea is for 3 teams of 2 each to have a sit pop race involving about 50 or so balloons. Whoever finishes first keeps their dragons intact, 2nd place has 1 dragon popped and last place has both popped. So thats definitely 3 popped dragons that we'll have, but I can't say which ones they will be XD
Hi, I don’t have a lot of space but would be interested if any of the dolphins, shark or whales became available. I would like to get a Puffypaws wolf but don’t have anywhere to keep it atm. Thanks

This will certainly shock a lot of people who hate seeing inflatables popped...

I must admit it shocks me a bit.. I have been after one of those green & blue Swimline outriggers for ages as they look so boinkable. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be available any more and to see him popping one right before my eyes, when I so want one is a bit depressing.

Those outdoor inflatables are really nice, too. (the giant yellow ball). They are made from a lovely soft vinyl and despite been too big to boink fully inflated, they are really nice to roll around on partly inflated, whilst totally naked.

I fail to see why popping inflatables can be considered controversial. I played with a few inflatables in my life and I enjoy watching them blow up. I like to watch videos of inflatables take form as they inflate bigger. Some of those clear inflatables look like they would be fun. I suppose watching inflatables pop is a little disappointing since they are meant to be played with extensively and you can deflate them safely without damage.

But in the end, the appeal of the balloon always wins me over.

After a holiday an ex of mine burst my Intex dolphin with a scary loud bang just with her bare feet!!! We have burst lots of beach balls too with loud bangs with just socks or bare feet, so a loud bang is possible from inflatables!!

I personally don't pop inflatables - they're too expensive to pop. However I do like seeing people popping them (with skinship, not the slash with a knife and toss in the pile type from that Youtube clip posted earlier).

That being said I can see where nonpoppers can see popping inflatables as a bad thing, as many inflatables are designed to look like animals, so they have an attachment value that you just don't get with balloons. Their reactions to them popping are way over the top though.

I quite like popping inflatables, but only from bouncing/riding on them. Not into using sharp objects. Far too easy that way! Normally what happens is a seam will fail, either resulting in an instant blowout, or a more slow and steady deflate. Either way, you can usually repair them for another round!

I don't like popping of inflatable animals because I'm emotionaly attached to them, even if they are "just" PVC-foil with imprints. Most of them looking cute as hell, are great to cuddle with and the feeling of the material is nice.
And I'm way more emotionaly attached to them, if I can save popped inflatables and repair them.

Also I guess there would be a better relationship between non-poppers if more popper would sell the popped toys. Especially if they are rare, discontinued and/or kind of expensive.
