Qualatex - The Brand the Professions Use Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 1st, 2008
The Qualatex brand of balloons is the standard brand that nearly all balloon professionals balloon use. The 260 means 2" wide and 60" long (2"x60"). This is the standard size to use for balloon sculptures. There are 100 balloons in this bag in various colors. This pack is also called the Qualatex Basic Assorted Colors pack.
Joe Montella mentioned in his DVD that Qualatex also makes a Entertainers' Assorted Colors pack and a Neon Assorted Colors pack. These two other packs have different colors than the basic assorted pack.
This basic assortment of colors is all that you really need but maybe if there is enough demand, Penguin Magic will carry these other two balloon assortment packs. Hint, hint Penguin Magic!
I was at first concern about the quality of these balloon because balloons are made out of latex, can have pinholes in them and can burst easily because of quality control issues but I had no problems with any of my Qualatex balloons.
Betallic (Sempertex) is the other brand of balloons that some people use for balloon sculptures but you will find that nearly all balloon professionals use Qualatex balloons.
I did some research and found out that Qualatex will stand behind their product and will replace your balloons if you have a quality problem with any of their balloons contact them.
Make sure that you buy the Balloon School with Joe Montella DVD and the Qualatex Single Action Hand Pump that Joe Montella recommends. You will need both to get started. Joe's DVD is one of my best purchases.

I picked up some of these at the same time I picked up the Balloon School DVD offered here. I've used a number of brands of balloons but I found these to be the best, most durable ones. The balloons can withstand a lot of twisting, bending, and turning. All in all a good product. When I ordered them from penguin they come in the traditional colors like red, white, blue, yellow, green, purple.
I use them pretty much in almost every birthday party and festival I work.

You really can't compare these balloons to anything else on the market; just pulling them outta the bag will prove to you that they are better than any others out there. These don't pop easily, they are powdered on the inside to keep the friction aspect from being a huge problem and these balloons are easily malleable like all good balloons should.
Back when I did heavy balloon sculpture, these were the balloons that not only stood practice, but also stood the test of performance... these are great balloons which you can easily see the quality when they are in your own hands. Pick some of these up.
Great quality Report this review

I only used these balloons, and I didn't realize how good they were until I worked with another balloon artist at a middle school a while back, and she was using a pack she got from party city. I tried working with them, and whenever I tried doing something too complex, they would pop.
My only complaint is- it is near impossible to tell green, blue, black, and purple apart before you blow them up. Other than these are great quality.
