Re: Larger beachballs no longer available retail?

Just got back from Costco on the south end of Calgary. They're selling giant beach balls (5 footers) in traditional colors/patterns. 2 packs. I think Costco's are pretty much the same everywhere.

Re: Interesting arcade game involving balloons.

Heh, yeah! That would be hilarious. Probably illegal to try in some jurisdictions.

There's a video of it on youtube. Doesn't take much searching to find it. I'm not going to post the link because...

Re: Does size matter

Honestly, no, I haven't. I have heard about them and have seen pictures of the amazing necks they produce. Next time I do an order I'll have to order a few as I am definitely a big fan of the old...

Re: Looning in decades gone by

I remember in the 80's as a kid when convenience stores had those cardboard stands at the till with an assortment of balloons hanging from them. Sometimes you could get a giant zeppelin or even a...

Re: Interesting arcade game involving balloons.

There's a slightly different variation I first saw several years ago in Las Vegas at the New York, New York Hotel Resort kid's arcade that involves a large (36") balloon being inflated until it...

Re: Does size matter

The TT24 is a totally different balloon from the Qtex 24. I like the Tuftex 24 but it's definitely no Qualatex 24. The Qtex 24's were almost made with looners in mind. They neck beautifully, take a...

Re: Leaving Balloons out in the sun all day?

It would work. I've tried similar and they get nice, oxidized and soft. Different brands react different ways.

Re: Looning in decades gone by

Basically until I discovered the old Champagne and Balloons forum in 1997, I really thought I was alone. As much as I enjoyed "looning" I was seriously concerned that it was some kind of mental...

Re: Larger beachballs no longer available retail?

I've noticed this, too. A couple of the local grocery chains have the latest Intex 42" beach balls, but that's it.
In Galveston, TX. there are several stores that sell 48" classic color beach balls...

The 15's that Kaboom sells remind me a lot of the balloons available from the local drug store and grocery store that dominated my childhood. That's why I like them so much. Lots of pleasant memories...

Re: Hobbies??

I guess a fetish related thing that's a bit of a hobby is I actually collect beach balls. By collect I mean rare, vintage beach balls that haven't been made in 60+ years. Especially 36"+ sizes. I...

Re: Blow up dolls!!

Well, I only have 4. I have 3 of the "Fat-Ass Party Dolls" made by Topco, and I have my nurse.

Re: Favorite Balloon Clip Studios

I kind of miss BalloonDirectory. I really liked Xev, Kedra and some of the other gals on there. Lots of pleasant memories of those ladies doing amazing things with balloons and inflatables.

Re: Blow up dolls!!

I've browsed that forum. I'm not a member.
I don't even know what the actual name of the doll is. I threw the box out years ago. I just call her my nurse doll.

Re: The Inflated Cost of Helium!

I do look at the other side of things. I'm not saying balloon helium is going to disappear entirely soon. I'm saying it's only going to get more and more expensive.
The thing is, major balloon...
