Elephant paper balloon
This traditional Japanese paper balloon is made from bright, crisp environmental paper. Each balloon comes flat: to use, simply blow in the hole which will force the balloon to expand, inflate and form into its circular shape character .The balloons can be flattened and blown up over and over again. Both adults and children love them; you can simply play catch, decorate childrens parties with them, pop them in party bags or make a mobile (see hanging tip below). A gentle word of advice - pets and small children tend to enjoy squashing and ripping the balloons so we don't recommend them as a toy for the under 3s!
If you want to hang the balloons up, my favourite way is to use a match stick. Break off the head , cut a length of thread or twine and tie it to the centre of the match. Slot the match stick carefully in the hole of the balloon making sure you hold on to the thread and position it so it acts as a bar inside the balloon, then simply hang it up!
