Although he has perfected the product now, it wasn’t an easy road and his first few attempts to create Bunch O Balloons ended in disaster. When he chose to use mini marshmallows as stoppers, it was quite naive. But it didn’t take him long to figure out rubber tubes were a better bet than the sweet confectionary to fill water in the balloons.
How many balloons do you think you could fill up and tie in a minute? About 10? With Bunch O Balloons you could fill up as many as 100 balloons in that time. All you have to do is connect the Bunch O Balloons to the hose, and it will fill up the balloons with water in seconds. To ensure that none go to waste, it’s advised that you have a bucket ready to drop them in once they’re done. They will fall into it with a gentle shake.
With an original goal of $10,000, Bunch O Balloons has far exceeded expectations. At the time of writing it has already raised over $550,000 with 14,000 backers. It still has 3 weeks left to see how much more money it can raise.
