What are some of the softest latex balloon brands that you know of? And what are some tips on making latex balloons soft and squishy?

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 it multiple times and let the air out. Ideally you keep the air in for a short while (an hour should do in most cases), before reinflating it. Multiple inflations will make the balloon able to become bigger, or softer if you don't go past rated size.

I like these, they're soft and rubbery, sniffable, and kissable!

They're small (9 inch?), but those arrays of 24 balloons that you can buy at Target...they may be the softest balloons I have ever found. They aren't overly durable, though - they won't support the weight of somebody wanting to ride them, but they're extremely soft. They are meant to be inflated in groups-of-eight, with some special pump (that I haven't seen alongside them?), but they can easily be inflated through their individual straws.

I merely cut the straws individually, below the point where eight straws are conjoined. Then you have individual balloons, with straws sticking out of the end. They're "valved" straws, so the balloons don't deflate once inflated.

One batch is red, and I think the other batches-of-eight are yellow and blue, if I remember correctly.

I stopped at Target today, and I didn't see those balloon arrays anywhere for the life-of-me. I hope they haven't stopped making them. Spritz brand, just like all their other balloons.
