Please note the delivery time for the giant balloons is 3-5 working days and the 3 foot giant confetti filled balloon is sent flat ready to be filled with helium by you.
The balloons are supplied flat packed ready to be filled with helium by you. You can choose to add 2 canisters of helium to your basket with the balloons. These disposable canisters have a latex regulator fitted as standard and you simply wrap your balloon over the end and fill.
For the large balloons on the day our recommendation would be to have a tape measure, get 2 chairs and measure a space of 70cms between the 2 chairs, blow the balloon up with the helium in between the 2 chairs until it is touching each chair and then you will know it is filled to exactly the right size to hold the tail. If you are not using a tassel tail either partially fill the balloon with air or use multiple weights as the balloon will become very bouyant without the additional weight.
Please note if you have purchased a metallic balloon do not inflate them more than 70cm's. They are smaller in size than the standard giant balloons. The giant 3 Foot Balloon (inflated to 2.5′) requires – 8 cubic feet (.226m3) – the balloon will fly for 3-5 days.
You have the option to add Hi-Float to your order. A squirt of this liquid inside each balloon will make them last up to 25x longer - recommended if you need to blow up your balloons a while before your event, or you just want to party for days!!
This trio of balloons requires 24 ft3 of helium. The helium canister recommended on this page is the correct size to fill this product. For furthur information please see the guidelines on our helium page.
