I love these balloons and so do the children in the neighborhood. Every year my family give these out for halloween and other goodies. I dress up as a clown and inflate the balloons and give them out. The kids and adults simply love them. We always have a line around the corner waiting for these balloons. The quality is excellent. I recommend these balloons for any and all occasions. Last Halloween we past out 500 of these balloons and we would have past out more but we ran out. This year 2012 our goal is to past out 1,000 of these balloons plus taffy apples and other treats to the kids in the neighborhood! When we tell people how we dress up and dress up our yard with balloons designs and art, people are amazed and actually have volunteered to help and have had a wonderful experience doing so. We have never had an incident or trouble. We live in a improvish neighborhood in the city of Chicago. I believe its not where you live its how you live.
