How do I inflate foil-style hand-held balloons?

We recommend that you use the straw provided to inflate these products. Place the straw into the slot in the neck of the balloon below the one that contains the pull tab and gently push the straw in.

Important: It is important to stop inserting the straw into the balloon when you feel resistance. Forcing the straw beyond this point will damage the valve and the balloon will not inflate correctly.
