Helium instructions:Helium filled balloons can float for up to 12 hours, however this is dependant on how they are handled, transported & mostly importantly: weather. Helium is sensitive to temperature so avoid extreme heat & extreme cold. On a hot day your balloon may only float for 2-3hours. Our recommendation is to inflate the balloon very close to the start time of your event. Please be aware of sharp objects, your balloon will pop. In most cases the confetti will pool in the bottom of your balloon without some air, we suggest that you pop in some air first (about a basketball worth). Some helium tanks do allow for some static, to create static; rub the inflated balloon with your hand & roll the balloon for the confetti to stick. This process may need to be repeated during your event. Bare in mind we cannot guarantee the confetti will stick when inflating with helium.
Blow up your balloon using a balloon pump or air compressor. Do not blow up the balloon with your mouth. For our fun confetti balloons, inflate with a balloon pump and rub the balloon with your hand to create static. Roll the confetti around inside the balloon and let the static work its magic. You may need to repeat the process. Please be aware of sharp objects and heat and lights sources as all have the potential to effect balloons adversely.
Mini Number & Letter Balloons

To blow up your balloon you will need a balloon pump.
If you really want to forge ahead without a balloon pump, you can use a straw, however you may not be able to achieve the same inflation.
To start, find a friend!
One of you blows up the balloon, the other pinches the end once it is inflated. Twist, Twist & Twist again then knot. Please note as they are small balloon they do not need much air.
If using this method we recommend inflating the balloon on the day of your event. Air will very slowly leak from the knot. Depending on your skills, the balloon will stay inflated for 2 days to 2 months.
WARNING: Balloons are not toys. Children can choke or suffocate on non-inflated or broken balloons. Adult supervision is required. Keep non-inflated balloons away from children, and discard broken balloons immediately.
