Good price,
but who the hell sells helium?

What do most people call a helium balloon that does not have any helium? Answer...a balloon.

Most card shops that sell helium balloons will fill your own balloons for a small charge eg card factory and toys r us are 2 that I know of

Costco sell kits that include the gas

toysrus sell the helium cannisters I think.

Will this become a HOT air balloon I wonder hahahA

Helium is a gas with a finite supply. Is used for medical reasons and in space research to name but two. Should NOT be wasted on toy balloons!

Actually the helium used in balloons is the waste after helium is used In Medical equipment etc. Good to know facts before spouting rubbish copied from other posts.

Card Factory haven't done it for approximately 2+ years, since they started doing (more of) their own range of helium balloons. They only fill their own. Clintons, however, will fill for a charge - I think.

Argos used to sell helium canisters, not sure if they still do, though.

Tesco helium. Good for balloons and silly voices.

A "small charge" to fill your helium balloon can be around £2.

Got any links to that. I can find loads saying not to waste it and that each balloon should cost around £75 to fill if it reflected the real cost of the helium, none about it being a by product.

Cabbage prince. Spouting rubbish and being rude. Info certainly not copied. Based on a 30 minute national phone in about a year ago. I listened...obviously something alien to you.

Because although most call it helium it is actually balloon gas which is the waste product from producing helium. Both right sort of! Helium isn't used any more for balloons but is still called it I think for ease by customers

Thanks hidilow. Good information nicely explained. My original comment was ref helium. Now I know there is such a thing as balloon gas I can rest easy!

i like to buy a cannister of helium every year for the kids birthdays, about 20 quid in asda.
that way can get good choice of balloons online :-) and i do love a balloon or 2

Not fully correct - but balloon gas is helium that is not 100% pure. Indusrial and MRI scanners need pure Helium.

Technical Helium which is 100% pure is used for medical ( MRI scanners ) and other industrial uses.
The gas is reclaimed from MRI scanners and at approx 99.8% purity it is no longer of use for medical purposes. This is what is usually used for balloon gas.

Yeah not many articles around there on google to support what were saying but it remains a fact. Still see the point that there's a finite amount of it after being used even but how else could the waste be used other than balloons and talking like a chipmunk? (Which can be dangerous) Least it's getting some use than releasing it into the atmosphere.
