Default Ever popped whilst family are at home?
I've had a fair few of these experience but luckily no ones ever said anything.
This morning i decided to bite and let the air out of a balloon that was taking up the room in my wardrobe balloon hiding place but it burst when i bit it...everyone was in bed asleep luckily but still made me go OH S*IT hide the other one quickly !
Anyone had family say anything to them when they hear the very obvious and distinct BANG ?

I haven't had it happen yet, mostly because I very rarely do anything with my balloons while they are at home, though it's increasingly tempting as I very rarely have the house for myself these days.

While on the subject, I've wanted to test how well you can hear a balloon being popped in my bedroom from other parts of the house for a while. Does anyone have any ideas for how I can make a balloon pop while I'm in a different room to see if I can hear it?

I would like to know a way too...hmmm...maybe if......how about if you set the balloon atop something that gives off heat which would slowly comprise the balloon....giving u time to move about different parts of the house...but what...a lampshade...no a naked light bulb... Try that...i think I might do the same...yeah...that should work...

I've had balloons pop at home with my parents around. Sometimes whilst they're sleeping, but sometimes while they're awake downstairs. I've been questioned a few times, but usually put it off as me dropping something or tripping.

An iron of some sort, either for clothes pressing or a soldering iron.

Only have balloon play when alone in house.
Hearing pops from other parts of house - have you tried b2p with electric pump? It can take minutes from switch-on to pop, time to move around house. If that's takes too long, try making pin-hole in the thicker drip point of the balloon before switch-on.
Also seen on youtube squeezed orange juice or baby oil dripped onto inflated latex balloon delays a pop. Hope this helps

When I was still living at my parents house, I always had balloons in my bedroom "as decoration". Every now and then I replaced the balloons to have different colors or just because they weren't that nice anymore.
So when my parents heard balloons pop, they thought I replaced my decoration. Which was true, as I made sure to replace balloons after popping a few. But I also enjoyed popping the balloons (and I still do).
