Re: Need your help. BSA balloons reviews.

The latex is quite thick and they get quite hard when full. They have the potential to get great necks and generally feels durable, although I have never really pushed the few I own that much.

Re: Where to buy unique balloons

Nordic Looners haven't had Unique in stock for many years now. I asked them a while back and they said they had troubles with the distributor only being able to supply a handful of different colors,...

www.loonerworld.de or www.jennyloons.de are probably your best bet for Unique. I haven't tried Loonerworld for a couple of years now, but my...

Re: Unique, Tuf-Tex, or Qualatex?

After being inflated a few times they get really soft and can get huge when overinflated. They also have a great neck if done properly.

Re: Which brand??

Cattex are usually quite cheap for their size, but as others say, shipping from Europe might take away that advantage. Not a big fan of their 16" (or 19" as they're sometimes labeled as) balloons, as...

Re: Unique, Tuf-Tex, or Qualatex?

Unique
I'm able to buy them locally, they're cheaper and they can be just as strong as the more expensive brands. Quality varies a bit, but certain colors tends to be quite consistent, so you can...

Re: Zuru Bunch O Balloons - Your views

I was playing with the idea of lying under them and do this, ideally placing the pump a meter or more above me, so the shard would properly rain down. I couldn't find a good way of doing this in my...

Re: Pops + shreds

I have to agree. Seeing the neck expand is one of the best parts of sitting on balloons for me. I'm in no way interested in making the pops louder either.

Re: [Very Serious] Best Models of All Time

You might be thinking of Atish from Emma's Balloons. She was always really playful and fun to watch.

Re: [Very Serious] Best Models of All Time

Good to see some love for Celestine. I feel like she often get overshadowed a bit by Selenite, but they're both great! Both of them have already earned a place among the all-time greats in my book.

Re: Fallout Looner Character Ideas

I actually had an idea of a story set in the pre-war era a few years ago. It would be about a girl working as a balloon seller at Nuka World. The girl had been really fascinated by the big (16"...

Re: GL Inflation

Thanks for the replies everyone. Guess I'll try to reinflate the balloon a few times before using it next time I break out a fresh one.


The neck of a GL500 is roughly 4.5cm wide and the...

GL Inflation

It's been five years since I bought my first GL balloons and I've tried everything up to the 1200. I always try to start inflating the far end first, as I've been told on the forums for years, which...

Re: Softest/Thinnest balloon

You'll most likely find that cheap balloons are thinner more often. I can't give you any brand names though.
Out of the more traditional looner brands, I would have to guess 11" Tuf-Tex. I don't...

Re: Soft Squishy Latex Balloons

16" Unique are quite soft at rated size, even on the first inflation. Tuf-Tex gets nice and soft after being inflated at least once before.

Best way to make a balloon soft in general is to inflate...

Re: Getting over your fear of popping balloon

I've done this when my neighbors haven't been home. It's a good way to see how far the sound travels.

Re: Poor quality Qualatex balloons. What are your experiences last months?

Re: Poor quality Qualatex balloons. What are your experiences last months?

Where did you order from?
I ordered a bag of crystal purple Q16s from Balloons-United in January. I've only inflated one of them so far, but it seemed fine.

Re: Getting over your fear of popping balloon

I'm usually quite fearless, as long as I have earplugs in. Exception is b2p, which I still only manage on rare occasions. If the loud noise bothers you, I don't think you should get rid of the...

Re: Custom Printing on balloons in UK?

They're available here, along with a lot of other prints https://balloons.gonflable.org/
They're a bit expensive though.
