I love browsing Kickstarter and investing in great ideas that I wish I would’ve thought of myself! One of those such ideas was Bunch of Balloons. When I first saw these, I immediately thought of my upcoming (now past) 25th high school class reunion. Okay, this is where you all tell me I don’t look old enough to be out of school 25 years! The honor years always have floats in the annual “Jaze Daze” parade, and although the committee warns against having water on the floats, every year it is one big water fight with water balloons and water guns, not only amongst the float entries, but amongst the participants and crowd.
Having remembered manually filling water balloons at my 20th class reunion, the idea of filling (and not to have tie) 100 water balloons in a minute sounded very appealing, and I ordered mine immediately! Since ordering and receiving mine, you can now find and buy Bunch O Balloons everywhere from Amazon to Ebay.
I videotaped my classmates actually filling up the Bunch O Balloons water balloons to show you just how fast and easy it was. I warned them ahead of time not to swear while being filmed.
Obviously I should’ve held my iPhone horizontally instead of vertically to maximize the YouTube screen. And luckily you don’t even have to see me in the short video, only hear my voice and my phone run away in the end as they try to spray me with the water hose!
Would I buy these Bunch O Balloons again? I’m on the fence as (1) they are quite pricey compared to the price of regular water balloons (although the price keeps coming down) and (2) I found them thicker than regular water balloons, thus harder to actually burst open when thrown at your target. Either that, or my swing arm is terrible. Yeah, that’s probably it.
