You may have heard of Balloon Bonanza or Bunch-O-Balloons. (other brands which I have only seen online include Magic Balloons, Water Balloons In A minute, Crazy Balloons, Super Water Balloons, Balloon A Ton) Both are similar products that claim to fill 100 or more balloons in just 1 minute.
I picked up a few locally to try. And of course the cheap skate in me had to try to find a way to refill these “one time use” attachments.
(yellow balloons are Balloon Bonanza, green balloons are Bunch O Balloons)
First I’m going to review my refills. (each color is a different method which I will go over tomorrow)
Cost. Water balloons, I paid 89 cents for a pack of 100! and other supplies which is less than $5. these items can be purchased almost anywhere.
Performance. All of them filled fully, came off the attachment easily. and popped as a water balloon should.
Bunch O Balloons.
Cost. $10 at Toys R Us.
Performance. All the balloons filled fully and came off the attachment as advertised.
Cost $9.88 at Wal-Mart.
Performance. 6 balloons fell off the attachment when filling the balloons. these balloons were tougher to break.
they fill better when in a tub of water than on the ground. (And the dog won’t step on them when they are in a tub)
Just be sure and pick up as many pieces as you can I’ll explain why tomorrow.
