Re: Dollar store score

The dollar stores (Dollarama) up here in Canuck land stock these 36" Chinese paddle balloons. They used to have smiley faces printed on them but for the last couple of months they haven't been...

Re: Good score.

It's always rewarding to legitimately snag free balloons. Especially printed and/or uninflated. I don't even mind paying for custom printed balloons.

Good score.

Well the balloon gods have smiled upon me. Particularly in the printed balloons department.

A couple weeks ago I responded to a Craigslist ad that had a seller selling a bunch of custom printed...

Re: What do you do with old balloons?

Depends. Balloons I've rescued or had given to me that are inflated I wait until they're completely deflated on their own. Helium balloons I wait until they aren't floating anymore
Bigger balloons...

Re: Mylar/foil balloons?

I used to totally not be into mylars at all. But in recent years I've warmed up to them. I especially like the larger round ones.
Latex is still by and large my preference. I don't own many mylars.

Re: qualtex 24 inch memories

I really miss them. I still have a bunch but they're running out. I might fill a few with helium this weekend.
I especially loved the crystal "happy birthday" 24's and the white snow man 24's.

Re: New article on the dangers of popping.

For our monthly safety meeting at work, we did a topic on noise and the dangers to hearing and on the decibel chart balloons were right up there with a shotgun report.

Re: Colour and type, ignoring size

Punchballs are my absolute favorite. For some reason I really like green, orange and yellow for colors.
I like black but I don't buy them often because I find no matter the brand, black balloons for...

Re: Beach balls

Probably the original 48" and 60" Intex Wet Set classic beach balls. I have dozens still new in bags but I wish I'd have bought dozens more before they discontinued them. It's a classic beach ball...

Re: Really upset and annoyed that my local McDonald's won't give me 3 uniflated ballo

I hate to tell you this, friend, but getting told "no" once in awhile is a part of life. Especially when asking for something for free. It's up to the owner of the balloons if they want to give them...

Re: The magic hopper ball

Great story!
I love stories about inflatables that are "alive" or "self aware".

Re: Rescued Balloons

I get lots of balloons for free by simply asking.
Most of the time we overthink it. Balloons are just another daily object to most people to be used and discarded. Therefore most people look at it...

Re: Balloon Story Ideas With Orcs

My current D&D character is a level 27 half orc berserker. Don't think he's popped any balloons, though.

Re: Tying or fitting a cattex 72

If the nozzle on the pump is long enough, I just wrap the mouth of the balloon around the nozzle and hold it securely by hand. We just use hair elastics to tie them. Old punchball elastics work...

Re: Pic of the day

OOOOH! I miss these balloons. My last one deflated after being blown up over and over and kept around the house for 2 years, about 2 years ago. It was green and got very overinflated.

Re: Least favorite inflatable?

Not really a fan of the Intex or Bestway crocs. I have a few.
Also not really a fan of smaller beach balls. They just don't do it for me.
Also I have a couple of Bestway boats. The vinyl is really...

One of my personal favorites is the GL-900 with the link. Very durable and I love the shape.
