Inflating Foil Balloons

You can inflate foil balloons with your mouth, a balloon pump or with a Helium tank.

If you inflate the balloon with your mouth, please be aware that EU regulations forbid children to inflate balloons with their mouth. We recommend inlating the foil balloons with a balloon inflator. If you choose to inflate the foil balloon with your mouth, insert the straw in the valve of the balloon as shown in the picture below:

How to inflate a foil balloon with a straw

If you are using a balloon pump or balloon inflater, you can insert the nozzle of the inflator in the same place as the straw. If you are using a disposable helium tank, insert the nozzle of the Helium tank in the valve of the balloon in the same way as the straw on the picture. When using a Helium disposable tank, the nippel of the disposable Helium tank also fits in the valve of the balloon.

Be aware, don't inflate the balloon too hard, the foil balloon can pop under too high pressure.

When you remove the strow or the nozzel, the valve of the balloon will seal automatically. If after a week or so the foil balloon is loosing a bit of pressure, you can add a bir of air or Helium in the same way as described above.
