One of my children gets something in her head and she’s completely fixated on making it happen. This has been the story of our summer. We went shopping in late June at Sears Outlet in our city and she spied a water balloon device and had to have it, so I bought the thing. We planned a fun afternoon out and kept it for when the older cousins came over and guess what? It didn’t work. Not even close. It was missing a part or something and I was mad and she was frustrated. Dad even tried to fix it (remember this was a brand new toy made by Discovery Toys) but to no avail. Not to be deterred, Ainsley tried for weeks at least once every other day to fill those balloons with the busted defective pump / container. Persistent, no?
Sweet Suite 15
Then I flew the coop for about 5 days for a conferences in New York and during the one great evening of toys, a giant showcase of new toys called Sweet Suite, I met a company called Zuru demonstrating Bunch o Balloons Water Balloons. I took a sample home and was excited to give it a try.
Zuru Bunch O Balloons Water Balloons
This past weekend we invited my nephews and my niece from my side of the family. They range in ages from 2 1/2 to 6 1/2. We swam all day on Sunday. We started at 9 a.m. literally and the kids had to be almost tricked to get out of the pool. The promise of new toys to play with and test out – one of the perks of being a blogger – and a water balloon fight was offered. We really just hoped they’d get out of the sun for a few minutes because it was scorching. So, we got the Bunch O Balloons Water Balloons 100 balloons in 60 Seconds by Zuru toy out and attached it to the hose. Now please note the one I have did about 40 water balloons not 100 as the Amazon store and link indicates. (I think they sell 2-3 packages together at Amazon)
Bunch O Balloons Water Balloons WORK!
Within 2 minutes or less we had about 40 water balloons. (I did not actually count) Not huge ones, but perfect and full and ready to throw. See the gadget itself attaches easily to pretty much any hose and then you turn the water on and voila. The balloons are each attached to the end of a fine tube that fills them up easily. There are elastics already around the edge of each of the balloons and they slip off effortlessly.
A Perfect Summer Afternoon or Birthday Party Activity
Then we had a quick water balloon fight. Some blasted open fast and others were pelted kind of hard, at me actually, because I was trying to place some sort of order on the chaos that is a summer Sunday afternoon. These water balloons were tonnes of fun and low on frustration so I give them super high marks. The water balloons device comes in a variety of colours.

Water Balloons That Work
Anyways, here’s the thing. Bunch o Balloons Water Balloons by Zuru, Bunch O Balloons Water Balloons 100 balloons in 60 Seconds is well worth the money because it works. It works brilliantly and I would buy it again every time. Save yourself the frustration. The others do not work. This one does. Water balloons should be fun not frustrating. Period. Now I just need to find the refills that are as simple as the gadget itself. These come in a rainbow of colours.

I received a sample at Blogger Bash Sweet Suite event. I was under no obligation to write about this product. This post contains affiliate links so that you can buy these yourself. My opinion is all my own. I think they are super smart. BTW for more on the toys that we have received and been testing out from Sweet Suite visit my Youtube channel or this link about Snap Pets.
