I was given three packets of Zuru ‘Bunch O Balloons’ by All Brands Toys (one to review and two to giveaway). This is not a paid review. All opinions, video footage and dodgy throwing techniques are my own…
“I wish I thought of that!” That was my second reaction when I saw Bunch O Balloons. My first reaction was “Awesome!” The little kid in me was very excited.
Imagine being able to fill 100 water balloons in 60 seconds. No more lengthy and wet attempts at filling up water balloons individually. No more sore fingers from having to tie each balloon up while an impatient (and usually excited and vocal) child looks on.
It sounds almost too good to be true. I first spotted Bunch O Balloons when they featured last year in the US on NBC’s Today Show. They arrived in Australia this year and were soon awarded the Australian Toy Association’s Toy of the Year. It’s fair to say these babies will be a hot commodity come summer and will feature on every kid’s Christmas wish list.
Photos do not do the genius of Bunch O Balloons justice so in the interests of demonstrating how cool they are, here is my first ever video featuring me, some interested tornadoes and a nervous Handy Hubby behind the camera phone (and in the firing line)…
What followed was an epic battle where Handy Hubby managed to get his own revenge. There was giggling, there was screaming, there was water. I’d forgotten how much fun water balloons can be! My tornadoes had never seen water balloons before and as soon as the first bunch of 30 or so were finished, there were cries of “more!” and “again!”. Our Bunch O Balloons street battle was the highlight of their day.
Bunch O Balloons are unique, colourful and affordable and would make a great gift for little (and big) kids over the age of three. You can find them in most major retailers nationally. I can’t wait for a rematch. Watch out Handy Hubby!
