Re: Old clips protagonists

I would add Beverly from loonernudes.com to the list. Not only was she a fearless inflator of big balloons, but she knew how to talk to looners. I particularly like her videos in which she first...

Re: Has anyone ever filled a GL with helium?

Never tried a gl, but I have inflated a 5 foot Unique banner balloon with helium, as well as 646's. I remember an old video from italoon.org that included a gl500 with helium. I also remember wishing...

Re: Larger sized Geo Donuts?

Why not write them back and ask for a 24" donut? You have nothing to loose and it could be an awesome balloon.

Re: Storage my clips

I've been uploading movies and photos to cloud-based dropbox.com for years. What is interesting is that old movie formats that my computer won't run without additional software, run on dropbox. I can...

Re: How many times have you reused a balloon?

I reuse my balloons until they start to look bad from overuse. Crystals are particularly susceptible to looking "tired" after awhile. Second and third inflations are often the best.

I prefer...

Slow or fast inflation

Party stores and decorators inflate their balloons quickly--time is money.

I wonder how many of us favor a slower inflation rate. I do. When I use a pump, I put a restrictor on the nozzle that...

Re: Balloons in new york

I've attached a photo that I took of the store. I wish that I could have taken a photo inside. It is a small store, but was filled with balloons. The smell of latex was quite prominent. They were...

Re: Balloons in new york

Balloon Saloon is worth a visit, just to soak up the latex-filled atmosphere. However, they prefer to sell helium-filled balloons. The one time I purchased un-inflated balloons from them, it was...

Re: Favorite Baloon and Activity

My taste in balloons has varied over the years. I used to be a fan of Qtex, but that passed when they discontinued the 24" and the 16" kept getting smaller. I also loved the Tilly worker; another...

Re: Your accidental pops

@Pallocino90: I understand your worry about trusting a newly inflated balloon. Most of the balloons that have popped on me were old and/or inflated multiple times. Stick with fresh balloons. And, if...

Re: Bad luck with balloons!?

I also prefer buying balloons online. Typically, you get better prices, bigger selection, and better quality. The downside is that you may have to buy 50 to 100 balloons at a time.
To avoid this...

Re: Your accidental pops

I have had lots of accidental pops over the years. Usually, it is because I inflate balloons more than once and I like to push the size. I've also had accidental pops with under inflated balloons on...

Re: Does blowing up balloons help with axienty

I find blowing up balloons to be relaxing and fun. I inflate 1 to 3 balloons to a nice plump size, then clip them. I come back later and give them a few more breathes, until tight. Repeat as often as...

Re: What do you do with old balloons?

One of the challenges of being a non popper is that you end up with lots of old balloons, especially if you buy balloons regularly. So, I toss oxidized balloons (don't like the smell), balloons that...

Re: Colour and type, ignoring size

I cycle through colors, but I always find clear balloons magical. Especially clear balloons with prints.

I don't find different aromas with colors, but with manufacturers. Cattex has almost...

Re: Balloon Overinflating in Party Stores

This is bit off topic.

I used to enjoy going to party stores and watch the staff inflate balloons. There was one independent party store where the staff was particularly generous at inflating...

Re: qualtex 24 inch memories

The first time I saw a photo of a Q24" I laughed. That can't be real; no balloon gets that big with a huge neck. Then I ordered my first Q24's and, holy shit, it was real. The photo actually...

Re: Best Balloons for Rookies

Belbal 14" are also a good choice. The long necks make them easy to handle. Plus most people think of them as a "big" balloon. Q 16" is a safe balloon, but the necks are short.

Re: Filling confined area with balloons

balloons4life: The balloons in my photo are all Q 16" and none popped. One time, I did try mixing them with tight 12" balloons and had a few random pops.

To be honest, my hope is not to have a...

Re: Best balloon for non poppers?

This is one of my favorite discussions.

BSA's are rated as 17", but they really are more like 18" to 20" (especially with multiple inflations). I used to think they were pretty round, but with...
