Yes, it was a very wet job, but somebody had to do it—we had actual kids try out 10 of the most popular water balloons.
Before we get on with the winners, one quick tip we learned during our testing: when filling water balloons, start with a cooler or container that is partially filled with water. That way you have somewhere to store the balloons without them breaking.
Now back to our recommendations. In the category of “why didn’t they think of that sooner,” we loved ZURU Bunch O Balloon’s quick filling water balloons. You attach a garden hose and fill up multiple balloons at once. Quick and fun.
What We Liked
• Self sealing. There is a plastic straw that is attached to each balloon with a rubber band, Each bunch is gathered together with a funnel and attachment for a garden hose. Fill 100 balloons at a time.
• 60 seconds to fill 100 balloons.
• Good for summer parties.
What Needs Work
• Have to use them immediately. Otherwise, the balloons will leak.
