Balloon Sticks with Cup - White - Plastic (144pc)
Saves you money on helium!
The pro is all of the money you save on helium. The con is that they cups don't stay on the sticks very well at all! I even broke out the glue at one point trying to help the situation.
These are the cheapest around that I found...I'm not sure if others have better quality or not.
I would buy them again, but next time I'm using a hot glue gun to keep the cups on!

Bought these for use with balloons, and they're well worth what little bit of money you're putting into them! I did a combination of centerpieces ~ some floral with balloon accents, and some balloon boquets. These are more than sturdy enough to hold a balloon, but they can be cut easily too, if you're looking for them to be different heights.

I bought these to decorate with and hand out to the kids and they are just as advertised. Very sturdy.

Worked great along with the balloon pump!
We needed a bunch of balloons to hand out at a parade and didnt want to pay for all that helium. This was a great idea!

These balloon sticks are perfect size and durability. Worked wonderful for our western party. All kids got balloons and we did not have to worry about them blowing away or popping!

Good product, excellent packaging, rapid shipping
I purchased balloon sticks and cups and found the balloon sticks were a bit difficult to put into the cups. This was not the case on each of them (I purchased 1,044), but probably one out of six were either to tight to fit or in a few cases too loose and pulled out easily.

Good option to helium
We wanted helium balloons, but it is getting harder to obtain helium, so we ordered the sticks instead. Balloons stay up like they are helium filled, but they don't float away when you let go of them. The only drawback I see is that the cups pop off of the sticks easily. A dab of glue would fix that if you wanted to.

Good for balloons
I had actually purchased these to use as sticks for small lightweight Styrofoam lollipops (for a Candy Land theme birthday party) but they could not support the weight individually. Grouping/taping them together in fours held the weight so I was happy that I had 144 for the 17 lollipops I had to make. If only using for balloons only they would be perfect.
