Balloon Float Times
1-800-Balloons float times for mylar / foil balloons is 4 to 7 days. In many cases depending on the environment they are displayed, mylar balloons can float up to 2-3 days or even 1 week or longer.
Latex balloon float times are from 6 to 10 hours, again depending on the environment they are displayed. Balloons should not be left outside for extended periods of time, as the heat or cold decreases their float time.
Balloons filled with helium will float and balloons filled with air last longer. Our recommendation is to fill them with helium and tie them to a weight, chair or teddy bear.
These balloons are shipped via United States Postal Service and are not delivered on specific requested days of delivery or offered for same day delivery. When placing an order for a “Singing Balloon” to be shipped, simply enter the day you would ‘like it to arrive’ and we will prepare and ship it approximately 3 to 4 days prior to the requested date.
When it arrives, there are special instructions on each singing balloon on how to unpack the balloon, insert a blow straw (for inflating the balloon) by blowing air into the self sealing neck of the balloon. Recipients, blow air into the balloon, seal the neck of the balloon, tape and tie bows to the balloon, and then place the balloon weights over a door (or desired location) for weeks of displaying your special message.
Singing balloons are a fun way to express your wishes. Once inflated, the recipient simply taps the balloon to play a special musical wish for their special occasion.
Our door balloons are a great way to send special wishes to your friends and family members. Door balloons are an interactive way for all ages to ‘blow and hang’ special banner balloons on their bedroom doors, or throughout the house to remind them how special they are to you for months - or years to come!
