Very nice, I'm waiting to try one in spring green, I'm just waiting to get my NOT lamp back from the baby shower one I did.

What size did you inflate the top ones to?

Thank you. These were just 3.5" on top, although I have a sizer I didn't use it as I was just messing about.

Cheers. The first one I did I just counted pumps on the green pump, but I've just got a sizer now so want to get used to using that from now on.

I was just looking on here and saw your pic zozoo.  I like that a lot!  Was it top heavy?  Did you have any weights to hold it upright?

Hello Tonya sorry for the delay in replying. Not top heavy at all. This was used with a Lomey stand glued to a plate but I've since done more using clear balloon sticks intended for larger balloons, they are called MAXICUP II.

awesome, thanks for the info.  I actually just ordered some of those, just waiting for them to get here.  Can't wait to give them a try.
