When they are helium filled I like to let them go!

I'm always a little afraid of the noise a popping balloon makes, but yes, I do like balloons. Especially the ones that people at carnivals turn into balloon animals. 8)

    I like large bunches of balloons.
    My son when about 15month fell in love with a balloon that he carried everywhere and I would tie to his toe when he slept.

    My sister in law is terrified of them. Her son is NEVER allowed to bring a balloon home or have one. So sad.

    Large balloons intimidate me, but I do enjoy bubble wrap. Not a ballon, but the concept is similar: fill an expandable plastic cavity with air.

    Think about it..

    They delight Everyone.. Mesmerizing children and adults alike. You can find them bouncing on the breeze in amusement parks, festivals, beaches, and a pretty much a *must* at any good party.

    You can use them as pillows, to entertain, to advertise parties, play with pets (If you rub on them with your fingertips the sound made will make dogs bark and cats come investigating what the heck you are up to.)

    If you have skills you can tie them in wonderful shapes.

    They come in all colors! Can cool you off when your hot. You whip out a balloon in a squirt gun fight and the stopping power you have in your hand can turn the tide instantly.

    Having thought about it, I think they are way undervalued as a source of entertainment. Hell they are fun to just look at.

    Balloons.. You can use them at any time in any situation, And they will never let you down.

    Well.. Unless they fly away after you release them. :? .. (That can really be a let down.)

    Some people think the bigger balloons are better! I like the average ones better! IMO bigger isn't always better! :-)

    The big big ones are great for special events and to get attention but the ones I love most are the ones you see every day!

    Except of course the ones filled with hot air! Those have to be big!

    I'm scared of balloons popping Roly.
    Lucky the ones I have are slightly deflated, so not likely to pop too easy.

    All I'm thinking about is a certain book written by Stephen King.

    Letting helium balloons go is littering.
    Those most likely end up in the ocean and something eats them and dies.

    I'm always slightly saddened when I see a balloon sailing toward outer space.

    Poor thing thinks it's finally free of some toddler's sticky fingered grasp, unknowing it's heading toward imminent death.

    =(

    Who has seen the famous film "The Red Balloon (1956)"? Short film that won many awards.

    Yes, I like all types of balloons.
