Splash into Summer with Zuru Bunch O Balloons! #Review #Giveaway ~ CAN 06/13

| May 12, 2016 | 77 Comments

The days are getting longer and warmer, so you know what that means: summer is on its way! There are some days during the summer when you want to have a quick cool-off to beat the heat. Zuru Bunch O Balloons asked us to review their Rapid Fill 3 Pack and Launcher Set as well as their Rapid Fill 3 Pack to see if they could help splash in the summer season in a cool and fun way!

 

 

Bunch O Balloons are also a product that is friendly to the environment! They are made from recycled materials. The balloons and O-rings are biodegradable and environmentally-friendly. The straws holding the balloons are produced from recycled plastic, so you can pop then into the recycling bin once the balloons are released!

Bunch O Ballons makes cooling off during the dog days of summer a smashing success! You are able to fill over 100 of self-tying water balloons in a snap. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Connect the attachment to a water source;
  2. Fill the balloons; and
  3. Watch the balloons self-tie to make over 100 water balloons!

Watch this video to see how quick and easy it was to fill our balloons.

 

 

The set we received was the newest one for 2016. It is a Launcher set with a lightweight and aerodynamic launcher! Now kids can toss their balloons up to 60 feet away!

It was VERY hard to keep our kids at bay while setting up our water balloon wonderland. They were itching to start tossing them to see them explode! This is what 100 Bunch O Balloons looks like.

We then piled the balloons into our wagon to transport them to our driveway to start our smashing party!

Since our lawn was not a glorious sea of green yet, we decided to take the fun to our driveway. Though our kids are at the recommended age for this toy (Ages 3+), We felt that it would be safer for them to throw the balloons against the side of our home. Once my kids started tossing the balloons, they couldn’t stop! My daughter loved using the launcher to send her balloons to a smashing end against the outer wall of our home. Our kids were sad when they were out of ammunition.

This was the aftermath of their fun.

The kids were great when it time to play clean-up. Many hands made quick work and it took minutes to have our driveway back to normal.

One note to make where this toy is concerned: fill the balloons with something to catch the balloons. Some of the balloons filled quicker than others, and we lost a few friends when we didn’t follow this step. It also helps to avoid getting sprayed by those that sprung a leak during filling. Luckily, we had more than 100 balloons in our kit to play with!

Check out how “pop”ular Bunch O Balloons are in other countries around the world:

  • (US) The biggest selling summer toy in 2015, completely selling out on the 4th of July;
  • (AU) Best-selling toy for 2015; naming it the AustralianToy Association’s Toy of the Year:
  • (DE) Nuremberg Toy Fair’s Toy of the Year

My kids had a blast cooling off with Zuru Bunch O Balloons! They can’t wait to be able to be able to splash about with it this summer with their friends!

  65. Brenda A says:

    I am so torn over this toy. Yes, it looks like so much fun! But the environmental impact of a toy that lasts for perhaps 3 or 4 minutes and be impossible to clean up every tiny bit of busted balloon is just too much.

    I’m all for water play, but this is a gimmicky toy that I won’t be buying.

  66. Jenn D. says:

    I’m sure they would fire them at their dad! Probably as he is exiting his work truck on a hot day. He works outside, so they would love to cool him off! hahaha

  67. laura says:

    How awesome!! I don’t think 100 would be enough!! 🙂

  68. Savanah Ashton says:

    My partner’s kids would definitely throw them at their father first, and then me!!

  69. Olga says:

    These would be the PERFECT addition to the end of summer family bbq! Every year we do a balloon toss game – and having to fill them up at the kitchen sink is tedious, not to mention MESSY! The toss always starts as a game (who can keep their balloon intact the longest), but it always ends up as a free for all – it’s the best fun ever! I’ve been involved in this family bbq for almost 20 years now, and I’ve watched little ones grow into big ones, and new littles added. It’s just a wonderful day! Having this would certainly give us more time to spend throwing balloons at one another, rather than filling them!

  70. janine a says:

    at his dad!

  71. Laurie Bolduc-Cadieux says:

    I can bet that I will be their first target with the water balloons.

  72. Katrina says:

    My daughter would through them at me.

  73. Nicole Fleming says:

    I’m sure I’ll be the first person my Daughter would throw one at

  74. Nicole M says:

    We will play with these on the trampoline! My kids will love it and I will love not filling them up one by one.

  75. Stephanie Liu says:

    Probably at each other 🙂

  76. Viv Sluys says:

    We bought a few packages of Bunch O Balloons already and had great fun playing water balloon games with them, like human battleship. My kids would love to throw these at each other.

  77. Helisa Duplassie says:

    Hahaha! I know without a doubt that I would be their prime target…and yet, I still want them
