Shindigs stocks 1,000's of Balloons and Balloon Accessories online!
Please note that due to the nature of transporting helium there is no option to order inflated balloons through our online store. All balloons are shipped flat and uninflated. Please contact us if you would like any further information or if you are in the Newcastle area and would like to order inflated balloons or balloon arrangements to be picked up from our Newcastle store.
We have a wide range of latex balloons from the cheaper 'air quality' balloons whioh come in a range of sizes and shapes and are perfect for kid's parties and party games to 'helium quality decorator' latex balloons.
It is important to note the difference - the cheaper 'air quality' balloons can only be filled with air as the quality of the latex is not strong enough to hold the helium.
"Helium quality" latex balloons are a stronger balloon able to hold helium for about 10-12 hours. These balloons can also be filled with air - many of our customers will use these balloons even if they are air filling them as the finished 'look' of the balloon is much nicer.
Shindigs carries plain coloured, helium quality, latex balloons in 3 different finshes - Standard (shiny plastic-looking finish), Crystal (completely see-through finish) and Metallic (pearly 'metallic' look). We also stock a large range of printed balloons from aged and birthday balloons, to themed printed balloons and also patterned printed balloons.
Foil balloons designed to be filled with helium and can float for about 2-3 days. They are very popular as they last longer and look nicer for longer than latex balloons.
Foil balloons have a self-sealing valve and do not need to be tied off once inflated. Care is needed when inflating these balloons as unlike latex balloons, they do not have any 'give' in them and can pop quite quickly if over inflated.
Foil balloons can be filled with air by carefully inserting a drinking straw into the valve and slowly blowing into the straw until the balloon is full, and removing the straw immediately. If filled with air these balloons will not float and will need to have string attached to the top so that they can be hung from above.
Shindigs has a great range of Supershape foil balloons, Airwalkers and 18in foils in a wide range of occasions and themes.
Shindigs has a large range of Balloon Accessories including Pick Onions, Balloon Weights, Balloon Drop Nets, Photo Balloons, Bubble Balloons, Balloon Ribbon, Balloon Pumps, Balloon 'H' Clips, Balloon Sticks and Cups. If you have many balloons to fill with air, we stock manual Balloon Air Pumps...it's sure to save your lungs!
Please note: Due to the nature of helium quality latex balloons we are unable to refund or exchange and latex balloons, so please make sure you are happy with them before you buy!
