how to stuff balloons
by: Anonymous

i use a pvc pipe to stuff roses and a bigger pipe to stuff teddy bears. i have two toy machines but the seal is no good on them anymore, put the rose in the pipe with candy clear grass ect. then place heart clear balloon om other side.blow up balloon to size make sure to use a tube on the rose this holds the air in.i use a small vase to set the heart in it. much cheaper and looks better. i usually go to a second hand sture and buy them on sale. 20cents each.

stuffing balloons

I read somewhere that you could fit the mouth of the balloon over a piece of PVC pipe that was lg enough to put the stuffed article in thru that to the balloon. Then somehow they would inflate the balloon. Still would need some working out to do it. Never tried it but intend to. If someone tries this please post and let us know if it works. Glitz

Balloon Stuffing
by: Margit

Unfortunately I don't know of a way how to put soft toys into a balloon without a stuffing machine.

There used to be a cheap alternative on the market where the vacuum was created and maintained with a hand pump. This "Faballoon Balloon Maker" sold for under 30$ at places like "Toys R Us". However, this machine is no longer produced.

I think your best bet would be to search for a used stuffing machine on ebay. For example, I saw a "Classy Wrap Machine" on offer for 50$ today. Another stuffing machine was offered for just 2.25$, but it was for local pickup only.

Just do a search for "balloon stuffing machine" on ebay.com to see the current offers.
