My balloon won't blow up...

I bought a pack of balloons but I can't get them to inflate, any ideas?


ANSWER:
I am assuming you are talking about normal, round latex balloons, right? Blowing up balloons yourself can indeed be tricky. One tip to make it a bit easier is to stretch the latex balloon before inflating it.

Please see our complete list of tips for blowing up balloons.

My personal preference? Use a pump! Manual balloon pumps only cost a few dollars and make it so much easier to inflate your balloons.

Hope that helps,
Margit
