Red. All red, they are poor quality, Qualtex is a premium brand, these are not. There is no loud POP! like the Q24" and you have to be soooooooo careful when inflating as they are fragile. The latex is super thin, to get it to 24" or thereabouts you have to work the neck by holding the body of the balloon in your closed hand and inflating the neck multiple times. Slllllllllllllloooooooooooooowly inflate the balloon, if you just blast in air to it, it'll pop! so carefully inflate and then you have your 24" balloon. They feel like a 1 product. Nothing at all like the 24" Qualatex that is so rare now.

This is one.

That's super-disappointing to hear. I wonder if that's why they are only being sold in a few Poundland stores - because they are remnants from another company's stock, and so Poundland are just looking to get shot of them?

Oh well... Sorry to hear they're not good.

I was sceptical of LondonLarry's post until I saw these bad boys in PoundLand. These 12inch feel amazing, sadly I could only find one bag,

Londonj2014, good find there.

I was in Poundland yesterday (yes still open despite lockdown) and found some Globos Payaso 16" in bags of 10. These are the same as 16" unique, get massive necks and are fun for 10p each. Bought 2 packets which was all they had and used them all up last night. I'm quite lucky as the next door neighbours are American and went back to the states on one of the last flights and I've no one on the other side of me so can make as much noise as I like.

Fun times for looning at the moment.

Look out for the 16" bags for 1, absolute bargain.

I got the 12" balloons you have, I really like them and bought 4 bags!
I'm hoping to find more of them

I'm quite lucky as well with neighbours and noise.

Will be on the look out for more in every Poundland. I also find a lot of big China 36" in the pound stores as well, they seem pretty good

Oh wow - these look fun. Can they take some rough handling and how loud is the BANG?
