Pre-filled Foil Helium Balloons £1 in Poundland!!!!

Found 5th Jul 2012
Went to Poundland in Stratford-Upon-Avon yesterday and they were selling ready to go helium balloons, I have paid about £5 in the past to get one as a Birthday extra, but for £1 it's an absolute bargain - so have got a few to make a balloon bouquet.

I don't know if this will be in all Poundlands, but may be worth having a look.

Great for Birthdays or if you just want a balloon yourself I guess:-)

if they posted these to you and the cost goes on weight, would you end up making money?

Sounds like a load of hot air

These are giant marshmallows on a stick.....when eaten,your voice goes funny!

These balloons are great to begin with, but after a while you end up feeling a bit deflated.

is this all branches or just this one?

I'm let down by this deal...

The world is running out of helium, and this is why

The end of party balloons is neigh

This deal is a bit over-inflated. I cant add heat either as it might explode.

I'm pretty sure the majority of designs are only £1 in Clinton Cards et al. I regularly get the red star ones so I can find my six tear old in the supermarket.

Seriously dull. It's running out of all natural resources isn't it?

I thought helium changed the pitch of your voice - didn't know it made you sound like a horse. Neigh, neigh!

Yet you can buy enough helium to float 200 balloons for that price. "We are squandering an irreplaceable resource," he says.



Maybe the cost of research would be a lot cheaper and they wouldn't be "waiting around on Helium for 3 days wasting $90,000" if the scientists used the same suppliers as Clinton Cards or Poundland.

sometimes the cost of something is more than the price you pay.

Cold for this deal, as its true value is not reflected.

cold, loads of places sell this kind of cheap trash for a quid.

Who needs MRI scanners when you can have crappy kids balloons.

They should fill them with hydrogen. That's lighter than air too, along with some other special properties I can't quite remember

Collect and then sell them to scientists. In scientists eyes each balloon should cost £100 believe it or not.

Cold not He3

they do use the same supplier - maybe you should reseach this before you open your mouth

You dont understand. It's a finite resource, extracted from natural gas.

Helium must be extracted from natural gas because it is present in air at only a fraction of that of neon, yet the demand for it is far higher. It is estimated that if all neon production were retooled to save helium, that 0.1% of the world's helium demands would be satisfied. Similarly, only 1% of the world's helium demands could be satisfied by re-tooling all air distillation plants.[82] Helium can be synthesized by bombardment of lithium or boron with high-velocity protons, but economically, this is a completely non-viable method of production.

Just to confirm these are, or indeed soon will be, available in all Poundland stores.

Should i stock pile canisters of Helium? Do you think if i put a few thousand into it i could hold auctions for it in future as my pension fund.

Maybe before you let off hot air in such a rude manor, you should read what I said again.....if Clinton Cards etc.. have stock to fill up balloons all year round, and it cost $90,000 for 3 days wait on the research helium to arrive then there is obviously something wrong in the supply of there helium somewhere along the delivery route (of which I know nothing apart from the extra $90,000 cost wait in the story).
I was not being rude or nasty about your comment, just trying to be light-hearted and highlight it and the fact that I found that part strange, after all they could have popped into a card/gift shop and saved $90,000 by buying some balloons or a helium canister for over the odds, I'm sure the card shop owner would be happy for the money.

Aaaaww, you're never too old for balloons!

If you by several balloons Do you have to pay for each balloon to be filled or just one of them
