Best Water Balloons For Parents Who Hate Water Balloons

Sharing is caring!

Today I’m sharing the best water balloons for parents who hate water balloons. Before today I was a total hater. I would have told you that the only thing worse than slime was a pop-while-you-fill-it, make all the kids whine, water balloon.

Best Water Balloons For Parents Who Hate Water Balloons:

My kids have always loved water balloons but I rarely buy them because they are typically a pain to fill up, the water squirts out when you try to tie them and if you do get them tied they pop before you can place them in the bucket. I can remember on more than one occasion telling my kids that we would never play with water balloons again because after all of my hard work the kids would toss the water balloons that weren’t casualties and whine while they impatiently waited for me to try in vain to fill another bucket. 

Today all of that changed! Today we had a water play party with lots of the best water balloons ever and zero whining. 

Why was our party a hit with not only my kids but all the kids in the neighborhood? 400 self-sealing water balloons! I’ll be honest, my kids had begged me for these before but I just didn’t think they would work.

Bunch O Balloons 100 Self-Sealing Water Balloons:

With ZURU Bunch O Balloons you can easily fill and tie 100 water balloons in less than 60 seconds. All you have to do is grab a bucket or container and add some water to it. Connect the water balloons to a hose and let the balloons fill up. Once they are read you can easily shake them off their “straws” and let them fall into the bucket. 

Tip: Don’t overfill the balloons because the balloon will thin out making bursting before use more likely. 

One pack includes 3 Bunch O Balloons (100 Self-tying, Rapid Fill Water Balloons). Bunch O Balloons are the award-winning (Toy of the Year) patented invention that helps you make the most out of summer with friends and family!

Ages 3+

3 pack $9.99, Available at Target, Walmart and Amazon.

ZURU Bunch O Balloons Party Pump Starter Pack:

To make our summer water balloon party a little more festive we dressed up a bench with balloons (balloons make great photo props). 

I would normally reserve party balloons for a birthday party because much like water balloons, party balloons can be a pain. Blowing, tying, and stringing balloons isn’t exactly a fun task so reserving balloons for birthdays just makes sense (until now). 

Bunch O Balloons Self Sealing Party Balloons, make throwing a fabulous “any-time” party a breeze! With BOB Party you can fill, tie and string 40 balloons in only 40 seconds. It doesn’t get any easier than that, does it? 

All you need to do is attach the stems to the Electric Party Pump nozzle and press GO! Within seconds, your Bunch O Balloons Party stems will fill and self-tie with ease and convenience and once inflated, you can cut the stems (hard cord) and the ribbon remains! These balloons are reusable (which is great because I would never reuse my slobbery birthday party balloons). Oh, and the Electric Party Pump is compatible with helium tanks! Say goodbye to filling one balloon at a time!

X-Shot Fast-Fill Blaster: 


Since water balloons eventually run out, blasters are a great addition to any water-themed party. While there are tons of water blasters to choose from the X-SHOT Fast-Fill, is a new family favorite! 

We’ve never owned a blaster that was easier to fill. Gone are the days of standing over a sink full of water, blaster submerged, waiting for the water to fill a tiny tank. This blaster can be dunked in the water or placed under a tap or hose for lightning-fast refills.  RapidSeal technology closes the blaster tank instantly allowing battlers to get back to the blasting action long before their opponents This blaster holds up to 24 ounces and reaches distances of 34 feet!

X-SHOT Fast-Fill is designed for kids 5+

$9.99 Available at Target and Amazon.
