[TOY NEWS] LED Balloons Product Review

Elf Hermey

Recommended Posts

LED Balloons are a newer product on the market that looks really cool in pictures, but we have always been skeptical if they look as good in person as they do in those product photos online.  Lucky for us, a company that sells these recently reached out to us to review their product LED balloons.  We received 2 sets of LED Balloons, one white and one multi-color, and an automatic balloon pump to review.

LED Balloons For Party

Color LED Balloons

I was asked to test this product and when I checked out the Amazon listing, I was in awe at how amazing these balloons looked in the pictures and could only think about how they would be the perfect addition to my son’s first birthday that is coming up.  But, I am always a bit skeptical so I was a little worried the LED balloons wouldn’t look as good in person as they did in the listing.

What’s in the box?

When the product arrived, it arrived in a plain white box, but it’s what is on the inside that counts right?  At least that’s what we teach our children!  But anyway, I opened the box to find what I would expect, 4 strings of Colored LEDs, and the balloons.

Each string of colored LEDs is attached to a thin wire which makes them easily moldable around the balloon and is battery operated.  The LEDs being attached to a wire is nice so they can be wrapped around the balloons and stay in place, the one downside is that they get tangled pretty easily and can take some time to untangle.  I ran into this issue, but after I got them untangled they were easy to use.  The string of color LEDs has 8 light modes.  This gives you multiple options from always-on to flashing at different speeds, to 2 colors on at a time, and many more options.  Different modes are nice to have, but I think the 8 modes are more than any one person will probably want, but it does give options so hopefully, everyone can find a mode they love.

How To Setup LED Balloons

When I unrolled the balloons, they looked really small, but then I remembered the product description said they grow when you blow them up, so I put it on the balloon pump and continues to inflate it.  As it inflated it definitely grew much larger than the size it started.  I stopped once it got big enough to have no wrinkles in the balloon, and it was very clear and a clean look, exactly as pictured.

The final step is to wrap the LEDs around the outside of the balloon to form the final LED Balloons.  This is where the LEDs being on a wire is really nice as it stays put as you wrap it around the balloon, then can secure the end when you are complete around another part of the LED string.

The only downside I find with these is safety if you have small children.  Since I had to wrap the LEDs around the outside of the balloon, they could come loose and be a choking or strangulation hazard.  So children should only use these under adult supervision

When complete these color LED balloon were gorgeous and as great as they look in the picture.  I would definitely recommend these if you are looking for a nice addition to the decor for your next birthday party or gathering.

LED Balloons For Wedding

White LED Balloons

The white led balloons are very similar to the multi-color ones we described above.  There are only a few minor differences between the color and white balloons: the white LEDs take 2 AA batteries, have 3 different light modes, and come with a few extra little accessories which can be seen below.

Like the led balloons we described with colors, these also live up to the expectations in the product pictures and would be an amazing addition to a wedding venue, wedding reception, or wedding sendoff.  Choosing color or white all depends on what look you are going for, but you can’t go wrong with either.

Electric Pump For Balloons

What better accessory is there for the amazing LED balloons above except an electric pump to make it easier to inflate the LED balloons?  Don’t let the bright pink color turn you off (I am not a huge fan of pink), because this pump made inflating these balloons a breeze. I could only imagine how quickly you could inflate all the balloons for your kid’s next birthday party.

This electric pump for balloons has 2 modes: the first one will keep the pump always running so you can easily go from one balloon to the next, inflating enough balloons to fill you entire house quicker than you imagined, the second mode keeps the pump ready, but only pumps air out when you press down on the nozzle.

This pump also comes with a lot of nice accessories: multi-colored latex balloons, flower clips, tying tools, tape strips, colored ribbons, and 100 dot glues.  This electric pump balloon package is a party by itself, but also pairs well with jaw-dropping LED balloons we also reviewed.  We recommend buying the pump with the balloons!

    • How do You Portray Santa?
      Portraying Santa is acting; it is a characterization of a mythical character.

      Most of us never think of ourselves as actors, but we are. Certain characteristics of Santa Claus have been handed down from one generation to another. The way we dress and conduct ourselves all follow an established pattern.

      Santa Claus is one of the most recognizable characters throughout the world. This came about from the advertising campaign of the Coke Cola Company and the creative painting genius, of Haddon Sundblom. Coke Cola was looking to increase winter sales of its soft drink and hired Sundblom to produce illustrations for prominent magazines. These illustrations appeared during the holiday season from the late 1930s into the early 1970s and set the standard for how Santa should look.

      This characterization of Santa with rosy cheeks, a white beard, handlebar mustache plus a red costume trimmed in white fur is the image most everyone has in their minds. Unconsciously people are going to judge you against that image. If your beard isn’t white or you have a soiled suit it will register with the onlooker.

      By the way, the majority of Sundblom's paintings depict Santa with a Brown Belt and Brown Boots. Not until his later illustrations did he change the color to Black for these items. Within the past few years many costume companies have offered the Coke Cola Suit and it has become very popular. You can tell it by the large buttons and absence of fur down the front of the jacket.

      No matter how you portray Santa, be it home visits, schools, churches, parades, corporate events, malls, hospitals we all make an entrance and an impression! The initial impression we make determines if our client will ask us to return.

      The 5 Second Rule

      I have a theory: When you enter the presence of your audience you have about 5 seconds to make people believe you are the real Santa.

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Not Everyone Can Be Santa!
      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.
