Since my oldest child just turned 11 I thought I would let you all know about this great little Balloon I found for her party. Above you will see the three packages that I purchased. I mean she's 11 now and regular old balloons just aren't "cool". So, she's having a few girls over for a sleepover and a few years ago we bought a disco ball and had a dance party. This year my husband is setting up DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) and we're having a dance party again, because lets face it she may be old, but she's still a little girl who loves to dance. I saw these illooms Balloons on sale (clearance actually) at Walmart in Watertown, NY. So, I grabbed three packages. And I love them. Sure they aren't going to light the way home but in the dark they are definitely bright enough to be cool, they are LED lights after all and the lights last 15 hours (we have had one lite since Nov 1st and it's still going). And kicking these around on the floor while dancing your butt off is so much fun. Not only do they add the fun to the party that all balloons do, but they also have the added touch of a bright glowing light. I'm sure some will glow brighter than others, but they are visible and so much fun.
You are cautioned not to pop these balloons, I repeat, please DO NOT POP these balloons. They come with a little tab attached to the inside that you simply pull off, it lights the LED light inside each and then you blow it up. You even get a measuring tape because you're not to blow them past 9 inches. Also in the kit is a little deflation sticker you stick around the tied end to cut it. These precautions are for the safety of the person using it. If you go to their website you will see illooms Balloons are simply a really cool added touch to any party or gathering. Oh, and did I mention you can have them "branded". How about that for the next wedding party you throw, or bridal shower, or corporate gathering?
Currently they are available at many retailers in the U.K., at Walmart in the U.S.A. and coming soon to Europe and the rest of the world, including Canada (where I'm from).
I give these balloons 11 out of 12 thumbs up (the one thumbs down is for the pain in the butt cutting the 40 balloons is, BUT it is well worth the fun of them)
