I use balloons to tie cables together.

If I'm running short of balloons in my magic box and need to top up ready for my next show I'll tie a 260 to my key ring to remind me . . . . got a terrible memory.

I use balloons to tie my sharpies together when on my holder around my neck.

We had a leak under the sink and I used a 160 as plumbers tape..worked fine.

Working in Southend over the weekend and one of the pirate acts was having trouble with his boots slipping down, a good old 260 sorted it out.

Almost used an uninflated 660 as a blindfold this weekend--parent asked for inflated balloon which I immediately nixed. Then another parent found a headband. And before you go weird places--the blindfold was for pinata busting, of course....

Also, use balloons to tie my pumps and scissors to hang down from my fanny pack strap (which carries my biz cards, money, keys, breath mints and other tiny assorted stuff). Tried other things but they kept breaking through my abuse.

A couple of tips for tips!
I used a 260 balloon tip as a replacement cap for the nozzle on a can of 3-in-1 oil. Also a 350 tip as a temporary cap for a a sharpie till the lost one turned up.

I've just seen another use for the bags the balloons come in. Apparently a balloon decorator in the USA has crochet the bags into a shopping bag / tote. Most impressive although I suspect a bit hard going on your hands if it's full. It's in the latest balloon images if anyone is interested.

I tie one end of a 260 to my house key and the other to my belt loop. I open the door and the key jumps right back to my side. Also makes finding the key with full hands much easier.

When I was crashing at a friends he clogged his toilet. I inflated a 260 and handed it to him. Turns out they can snake a drain pretty well.


As always,
Dylan

As a weapon.... Snap grabby kids hands when reaching into my balloons.

A great substitute for Duct Tape.

I wrap a balloon around the end of my Kazoo so I don't chip my teeth.

A nozzle as a nasal Dialator... really!

My children have pillows filled with balloons ... they say it smells like daddy?

Jewelry my kids make craft bracelets with balloons

Fill with sand for a stress ball or a weight, also juggling ball

Tip on the end of a table so not to scratch the floor.
