When you throw a party, the last thing you want to think about, is who is going to blow up all the balloons. Now usually I get lucky and my kids blow up a lot of them for me...until they figure out that it is not a fun activity at all and then I am left with the rest. I always knew I needed a pump, I just couldn't justify buying one, only to use it for the 3 months that all of their birthdays fall in, so I waited and just used all the hot air inside my body to fill up my balloons!
This pump, comes with a plunger handle and two different connector pieces that screw on and off the pump with ease. They may call this a balloon pump, but you can also use it to pump up balls and bicycle tires with the one attachment that comes with it.
To blow up balloons, I just put the black attachment onto the end of it and then a balloon onto that. You do have to hold the balloon in place as you are pumping it or the balloon can and will end up across the room. So with a little manuevering, I was able to pump with one hand and hold the balloon with the other. It pumped up to the size I wanted it in just a few pumps and was ready for me to tie it up.
Awhile back, I won a soccer ball and it came flat. Since we never had a pump, it has remained flat. I decided to use this product on it, just to see how it compares to the way the pump filled the balloons. So I switched attachments and then stuck the needle looking attachment into the ball. It took a few more pumps and some more moving it around, but once it was in there correctly, it did actually fill the ball up with air and it stayed filled with air!
This pump may come across as cheap looking and it is a great price, but it works really well for a variety of jobs. It is easy to use, the plunger goes in and out cleanly without much difficulty. This will save your lungs from blowing up balloons and it will save you time. When you are having an event where you need balloons, you know how precious time can be!
I really like this pump. I was able to blow up (not tie someone else did that) 8 balloons in a minute. Which is great compared to the 1 or 2 I usually get done. If you need an all around great pump that will work and is light and portable, then this may be the one for you. Head on over to the product page to check it out!
As always you can find out more about this pump and what it can do from that page, you will see what others are saying and maybe even what they are using their pump for, and you can pick up one for yourself. It really works and for the price, you won't find anything better!
