Balloon Sticks With Cup - Assorted Colors - Plastic (144pc)
I have been using this product for years. I use them for decorating the office for a special occasion or birthdays. The balloons hold up for a long time. I add some curling ribbon to the balloon and it makes it very festive.

Great alternative to Helium
These were a huge hit for my 4 yr old twins party. They made great decorations and I was able to prepare them the day before. The kids loved carrying them around and I loved not loosing balloons to the atmosphere. Big Hit!

I used these balloon sticks in centerpieces at a venue that would not allow helium. I assumed there would be equal numbers of each color and that each stick would have a matching cup. In actuality, there are random numbers of each color and not every stick will have a matching cup, contrary to what is shown in the catalog. Otherwise, this is a great product and worked well in my situation.

I purchased these for my grandson's birthday party. I love these and will use them in the future. Great if you don't have helium and the balloons will stay looking good for much longer than helium.

fun i guess
Some of the holes were bigger than others whih made it difficult for some of the balloons to stay secured but the kids enjoys using them sticks as swords :-/

These are AWESOME!!!
I am using these for my daughter's 3rd birthday party so each child can take home a balloon without them being helium based. I tested one out and my daughter was SOOOO excited about it. She thinks it is the neatest thing that she can carry around her balloon and it won't float away if she lets go.
The balloon stayed clipped into the stick very well. It has not fallen out at all.
I plan to use stick the balloon sticks into a styrofoam centerpiece and each child can take one at the end of the party. They look really neat. Love it!

these balloon sticks are not only great for latex balloons but the cups that are included with them also fit 9inch to 14inch air filled mini foil/mylar balloons as well. they have raised the price from $12.50 to $ 14.00 in the last week on this item however this is still the best deal i have been able to find. on other sites you get plain white sticks and cups for $15.00 or more plus shipping for only 100 sticks and cups. so basically you get 44 free for a dollar less. the colors are great however the red sticks look more reddish orange. this item is also avalible in plain white wich will go with any balloon.

Used these for bday party, as both centerpieces and for the kids. It was crazy windy day at the park, but I did not have any problems with the balloons coming out (as someone else mentioned). I threaded the end of the balloon through 2 of the slits. I used a styrofoam cone (floral dept. of local store), inside a sand bucket to display balloons. My centerpiece flew away several times (even with 3 weights in it), but the balloons always stayed intacted in the holder. These are essential for a helium free party with balloons!

Shipping is pretty fast, and the items are not very expensive. If your total purchase is over a certain amount then S/H is free too!! The items are very cute, and some can even be personalized!! Also the costumer service reps are very helpful (which is amazing because I can never speak to a REAL person, or recieve good service with most other places) And... if you make a mistake on something that is to be personalized (like give the wrong date, or miss-spell a name) then the costumer rep will send out the correct personalized item very quickly. My purchase experience was AMAZING with oreintal trading... I will be back for each time I have to plan one of my girls birthday... or really anything that Im planning that has a theme because there is so much to choose from!!

Best if kept stationary
I plan to use these for my daughter's birthday party in September. As a preview for that event, I blew up a balloon and attached the cup and stick to it for my niece at her birthday party. I soon realized that this is good if you plan to keep the sticks and balloons stationary. It was a windy day so the balloon kept flying off and/or my niece who ran around the party with the stick kept having to chase her balloon because it separated from the cup.
