 Forget the trials of filling and tying countless individual balloons, Bunch O Balloons takes all the hassle of preparing for a water fight and lets you just enjoy the fun! Simply secure the pre-packaged attachment to a hose and you’ll have 100 water balloons ready to use in one minute. We promise it’s truly that easy, see the steps below:

Not only is it a great activity that kids will love, Bunch O Balloons makes it easy for young ones to fill and tie the balloons all by themselves - no adult help required! Plus, a water fight is great for the whole party to join in on. Whether you choose to do kids vs. adults, girls vs. boys or sort teams by colors, you can’t beat a full-on water balloon fight during the summer! Not to mention, balloon tosses and field-day style games will benefit from this new balloon-filling device.

Bunch O Balloons takes all the hassle out of filling and tying the ammo for the water war, making it an easy way to give your kids a fun day they’ll love!

Businesses - Let’s be real, no one truly outgrows their love for a good water balloon fight, water balloon toss or any other creative outdoor game involving water balloons!

Why Kickstarter?

Our kids love water balloons, but the hours we wasted filling and tying balloons really sucked all the fun out of it. But, with help from my entire family, we developed Bunch O Balloons, the best, fastest and most effective solution to preparing for a water balloon fight.

Now that the design is complete, Bunch O Balloons is ready for mass production! By backing Bunch O Balloons on Kickstarter, the funds we raise will go towards purchasing the equipment we need to bring this must-have summer fun toy to families everywhere.

Be sure to be one of the first backers to get your Bunch O Balloons so that YOU have the advantage in your next water balloon fight!

                

Risks and challenges

We have a firm grasp of risks and challenges that will present themselves through the campaign, and we've taken all the time and steps needed make sure everything runs smoothly. We have been working on Bunch O Balloons for several years now, and we're finally ready to take this big step. We have been working closely with manufacturing and have a good grasp on the manufacturing process and quality control.

We have a completely functional prototype, and our manufacturing channels are ready to go. All we need is your support.

FAQ

  • Yes. Reloading would be almost as difficult as tying and the whole point is to make it fast and easy, right?

    Last updated:
  • Recycle it! We really thought about environmental sustainability in the design of this product. The stem is made from recyclable polypropylene plastic, number 5 if your community sorts plastics at the curb. Think of it as packaging for your balloons (that you don't have to tie).

    Last updated:
  • Yes. They are made from natural rubber and even have an additive that accelerates the process in the presence of sunlight.

    Last updated:
  • Yes and no. The design calls for natural rubber o-rings, but we have not been able to procure a reliable supply at this time. For now we are using synthetic rubber, and will convert to natural rubber as soon as possible. Meanwhile, keep in mind each package of Bunch O Balloons contains only .015 ounces of synthetic rubber, about the same amount that wore off of your tennis shoes last month.

    Last updated:
  • Everywhere! But not until we ship ALL the Kickstarter rewards. If you note our manufacturing timeline above, we will be well into 2015 before we make our way to the stores and ecommerce sites. Backing the campaign reserves your product AND helps us gear up for the mass market in 2015.

    Last updated:
  • We don't know yet. The Kickstarter production will allow us to get the supply chain in shape and offer the best value to future customers. We want you to enjoy lots of water balloons and make it as affordable as possible.
