Those Walmart 36" are my go to balloon right now. I stocked up on a bunch about 3 months ago and I'm still using the first one I opened and it's been through many rides and bouncing. They are definitely tough, the latex is quite thick and is pretty firm once inflated.

Definately one of my favorites. They do hold up really well when blown up to full size as well as multiple inflations. I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone who likes the larger round balloons. Cant beat the convience of grabbing them at walmart. Would def get them again! Also havent tried them with helium but i would love to test that out if i could get my hands on a big helium tank!

Are these available in the stores? Or online only? What brand are they?

Maybe, it’s just me, or the Walmarts around me just suck. I can never find them!

They are available at some stores, if you check online you can find out what stores carry them, the stores I've seen them at they are not in the same aisle as the rest of the balloons but in another aisle of party supplies. The brand on the package just says Way To Celebrate, I thought I read on here that someone said they were made from Tuff tex but I cannot confirm that.

Thanks, QuickRide.

I went to Walmart today. I see what you mean about them being on a different aisle to the regular balloons. Still, the store was such a disorganized shit show they hardly didn’t have any left. Maybe another looner beat me to it?

I was able to grab a three-pack of 17” lime green balloons and one dark blue 36”. $2.50 for the 36” - not over priced but not super cheap either. I will see how good they are. Other people’s reviews on this post give me high hopes!

I picked up a few of these and finally tried one out. Very satisfied with the balloon, but on the second inflation it only gets to about 33” and has a decent neck forming (for a round balloon). It’s also pretty tight. I’m not sure it would survive being blown up another three full inches in diameter.

If TufTex makes them, you can do far better on unit price on eBay. At least that has been the situation for a long time, and it was last time I bought some (about a year ago).

It is possible to 'search' the store, meaning find out what aisle something is in. Employees can do it, I believe the Walmart app does it, I keep meaning to see if the website will do it but I keep forgetting.

I'm at Walmart every Saturday for groceries and other necessities. I've swung through the party section once or twice. Never could find the 36ers but iirc the website says another local store has them, just not the one I go to.

Still, the unit cost on the 17s put me off. I'm already spending fifty bucks on food, possibly another fifty on other things, I just can't bring myself to do it. Maybe once I'm done planting stuff in the yard for the year...it'll get hot eventually, I'm sure. What better way to spend time in an A/C wind tunnel than with a big loon.
