Self-Inflating Valentine Heart Balloon Assortment
I ordered these for a banquet. They looked beautiful in centerpieces the children made. My little ones had a good time inflating them. I will plan to purchase again next year.

Self-inflating mylar balloons
These little balloons were exactly what I needed at exactly the right price. They were super easy to inflate, and fun, so even the men in my house fought over inflating them. Instead of using the sticks, I filled two giant egg-shaped vases in my foyer with hearts for a unique seasonal decoration. (I use metallic Easter eggs, Christmas ornaments and in the summer I even fill them with flip flops, so the heart balloons were exactly right.) They came right on time and I didn't have a single dud. I inflated them two weeks before my Valentine dinner and they're still full! I'll do this every year!! PS Once you pop the little inner bag to inflate them, it goes faster if you shake the balloon - no idea why.

A Gift Well-Received
I made a dozen little 3-D teddy bear cakes and purchased these balloon picks for the bear to hold onto. Absolutely adorable! Great Valentine's gift for anyone. There are enough balloons in a case for me to do this again for the next two or three years. They are easy to assemble and stay inflated for a LONG time. Simply place the hole-end of a flat balloon on the nub of the bow and snap the pick together, then squeeze the inner packet. And TA-DA!

I purchased these balloons for my two year old to use as her valentine's for all of her activities. They did not come with instructions (which they need to) so I came on here instead and read to inflate all you have to do is squeeze the small balloon inside. I also read to put the stick on before you inflate each one. My daughter loves balloons and now she can give one to all of her friends and its not another stuffed animal or piece of candy!

Great reviews from the receivers
Bought this for my grandson's valentine party in his first grade class. Once the kids figured out how to make the ballons blow up, they were really excited and wanted to do it again.

We tested one of them to see how much beforehand we would be able to activate the air bag inside the heart balloons two weeks ago and they are still firmly inflated!

Topnotch Holiday Purchase
These little balloons are totally the bomb! I bought the assortment on sale and at the same time bought the Hershey's kisses and little brown dogs with big eyes and "I love Jesus" tags from OTC, also. I put the Kisses in the bottom of 12 clear plastic bags, set the puppies down on them, pulled the top together leaving about 2-1/2 inches at the top and tied some of the narrow white with red hearts curling ribbon (did I say I also bought that at the same time from OTC?) I curled it before tying it on, pushed the stick of the balloon into the neck of the bag so it rested in the arm (front leg?) of the bear and tied it tightly. Cute as a speckled pup and my church group is gonna love them.
I may use a rubber band on the top of the rest of the bags so there will be some give to the neck of the bag and then tie the ribbon on. I believe that will be the plan!!

This is the 2nd year in a row I have purchased these. They are a great Valentine's Day fundraiser for my class.

Disappointed this time...
Unfortunately, only about half of my balloons inflated. I was also shorted one of the sticks. The sticks were not the cute little bows like I got last time (the ones in the picture). They were just a little box. These were not as good as the ones I got last year.

This item was a big hit with everyone. They enjoyed popping the capsule inside and watching it inflate.
