This Helium will not work for Helium balloon based toys such as the Air Swimmer. No where does the packaging or website state that this is a mixture of air and helium, but a little research after the fact verified that it is not acceptable for helium toys. If you need pure helium go to a welding supply or florist. And for the volume of helium required for toys such as x-Zylo, the florist is cheaper! This helium bottle works fine for standard helium balloons.
Not sure what the other reviewer was talking about, but this is super easy to use! All you do is roll the balloon end over the nozzle and push the spout - not rocket science!Its much cheaper to fill the balloons at home and this is a staple for every party I throw. I have been using these tanks for 6 years now and its a great time saver and cost effective means for your party. Never once did I have a problem or an issue with the tank.
These portable tanks are great! I buy them for every party and it is so much better than having to worry about renting a tank or having the balloons filled somewhere. I found it a little tricky at first to operate but now that I have been using them for awhile they are fast and easy. I find that each tank does about 30 mylar balloons which usually is enough. I like that you can bring the empty tanks back to Walmart which is also fast and easy.
I purchased this for my son's birthday, for my surprise it was completely empty!!! When my husband went to returned it, the associate close the box with tape and offered him another box closed with tape too. Obviously, he open the box in front of the associate and was empty too! They returned my money. Caution with this product.
We were able to fill around 35 regular round latex balloons with each tank. They stayed up for 8 hours before they started sinking and were still up partway the next morning.
Bought for granddaughter's 5th birthday party easy to operate
disappointed when the ballons that came with package would not float
after blowing them up with what they called helium only about 5 of the thirty that
I filled floated did not fill the 50 stated--- the ones that did float only lasted a few hours
very disappointed with this product --feel this was a waste of money and a very
disappointed 5 year old on her birthday--- would not recommend this to a friend or enemy
I purchased 2 tanks and were both empty. How can you return a item like this the store should make sure the tanks are working and full. My nearest store is 60 miles away. Not able to even purchase more for your party.
The info said you would get 50 balloons out of the tank. We didn't fill our balloons to big, I would say about average and got 25 balloons out of the tank.
The item was shipped and received within 3 days and worked as described. Although I find the cost reasonable, I would like to see it a little less.
I buy this tank at least 3 times a year for parties and just for fun. Its so much easier to fill them at home than going to the party store where it is so much more expensive to have them blown up only to have some either pop on the way home or get tangled and fly away. It's very simple to use even my 5 year old knows how to use it, so the review that says dont buy it, dont listen to them! They must not have read the instructions..
The large tank says 50 latex balloons.
I needed it for the tin foil balloons. It filled 23 round ones only. But still worth it.
Whats a birthday without balloons! I filled about 10 very large balloons. When it says fills 50, that means very small balloons. The birthday was a success. I would purchase again!
Simple to use. I have bought this brand and these tanks since my son's first birthday and he is turning 5 this week. We just about use the full tank each time with a little left over to play around with filling balloons for other parties or activities. I love that we can fill them at home and not have to worry about driving around with a car full of balloons. I think it is kind of expensive but Walmart's price is as good or better than any.
We blew up 25 balloons with the tank, and at the time of this writing, (although I cannot measure it), we can have another party and use the same tank. The outside balloons began losing their "floating" ability after five hours. We had some light sprinkles, and the water weighed them down. When the showers were over, they slowly rose again, but not as high as when we first set them out. The indoor balloons lasted a good ten hours, floating throughout our whole party. The order arrived on time, and having shopped around for helium, this was the best price. If your helium balloon needs are simple -- just want them to decorate and float for a few hours, this would be for you. The system is real easy. The balloon is placed over a flexable narrowing, hose valve, when bent releases the helium. When the canister is not in use, there is a screw valve on top that you can (and should) close tightly. As a matter of fact, when the helium arrived the screw valve was so tight, I thought it might not even be functional. But it finally unscrewed, and, to be sure, the tightness is better so as to prevent any of the gas from accidently escaping. Have Fun!
I was very upset when I found out the tank was empty because I needed it for my husband's 60th birthday party. I live in a tiny town where there is no place to buy helium gas. When I contacted Walmart Customer Service they were great and are sending another tank. It is due to arrive the day before the party so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Sending the first tank back is going to be a task though!
Based on the reviews I was expecting the tank to only fill about 35 balloons but I filled a packed of forty 9" balloons and still had helium left over.
I was very skeptical about the amount of balloons this unit was going to be able to fill and of course I was right. I ensured to fill the balloons at a small size and the tank filled maybe 30 balloons, last 5 was a struggle to fill. All balloons also started to deflate within a hour. Waste of money for sure.
I won't do another party without it. I regret all the time spent blowing up balloons or picking up balloons from a party store in the past. It is easy to use and a great time saver! I was able to do all of the balloons I needed for a party of 60 people. The tank was not empty so I used it for a class party. It still is not empty. You won't be disappointed!
I got this for a birthday party. It blew up 30 of the 18" mylar balloons with no problem at all! The balloons lasted for over a week too!
went to the store and bought this beware if you fill the balloons that comes with it do it right before the party after 3 hours i had them start falling don't use the balloons that comes with they don't hold the helium well its great for a party if you buy your own balloons
