Nice! For the money nothing is better than a dog hairdryer.

Good catch. He's using a Zibi Z-32NT, one of the Euro model balloon pumps. Super nice and somewhat more pricey than a dog dryer

I just got this dog dryer from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B085V...b_b_asin_title

This thing is a must for looners imo. First, it's shockingly quiet - it's not even annoying at full blast - It can inflate a BB250 full in about 10 seconds at full power, and the warm air is great for helping them stretch bigger. AND, to top it all off, it has a nozzle that can comfortably inflate large nozzle balloons... truly the best balloon pump I've ever used. Thank you for the recommendation!

I've got pretty much the same as LoonerJeff and i couldn't agree more, best pump you can have.

I do have to tell that in the first place we bought it really for our dog (a Corgi sheds a LOT) haha, but we're also using it for balloons and it's the best i could imagine.

As said, the air can be warm which helps the stretching, the power is adjustable so you can safely inflate a 14 inch-er without it popping too fast, but a 36 inch-er or bigger are fully inflated in no time when you set it to max power.

Can anyone confirm that these dog dryer pumps can inflate a fresh 11" balloon? If they can do that... I'm gonna have to get one.

Absolutely! If anything you should be careful with the power, because if it blows at full power, an 11'' is inflated in under a second so you need to be quick if you don't want to pop it

While we're on the topic of inflators, has anyone found a good one way mouthpiece for blowing up balloons if you don't want to breathe in the powders they put in some of them?

Just received a dog hair dryer for under $75 shipped. It topped off a valve-less heavy vinyl Space Hopper *tightly* in under 5 seconds. I am impressed.
