Where was this for my son's pool party last weekend?
We must have spent 3 hours making water balloons for the kids, and my fingers were sore afterwards.
Very soon, I'll be able to do it in mere minutes. My fellow Texan and inventor Josh Malone, along with his kids, developed a much faster way to replace the time-consuming process of filling water balloons.
Malone's device, which can fill 100 balloons in a minute, attaches to the hose directly for one-time use. He calls it "Bunch O Balloons" and launched a Kickstarter campaign for the manufacture-ready project. It's called the"Bunch O Balloons," and if you've ever attempted to fill up more than a few water balloons as we did, you know this is game changing. The balloons even tie themselves!

Guy is going to be a zillionaire on that.
Go go capitalism.
It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye...
You’ll shoot your eye out...
The arms race begins!
So cool! I see it’s for a “one-time” use....likely so he can sell more ;)
how does the balloon auto tie itself by shaking - im curious
Video at the link explains it. There appears to be a rubber o-ring that holds the balloon on the rigid plastic filler tube. The weight of a filled balloon pulls itself down off the tube, and the o-ring snaps tight.
What a hoot! I hope he makes a big splash! Lol
I know it's just a toy, but I'm thrilled to see any type of innovation when we have such a rotten, oversized government.
I’ve got an idea to be a zillionaire.
I’m making a Hillary Clinton doll.
Set it on the self and it falls off and lands on it head.
Dang it! My idea for a Hillary doll had her leaning to the left and then slouching there, very much like a potato. Yours is an action-figure by comparison.
Or until the envirowhackos complain about all of the latex that could be used to prevent more humans beings from being conceived to ruin the "Mother"/"Spaceship" Earth.
And Al Gore starts complaining about all the water going to waste, without he and his cronies getting a cut.
I’m almost there, but I’m still working on trying to get the doll to say WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE when it lands on it’s head.
I’m working on an entire collection of Hillary dolls I’m going to sell.
One shoots the V Foster doll that comes with it.
Another yells WACO then sets your house on fire.
No Webb Hubbell references?
No maps of fort Marcy park?
This will definitely cause Global Warming. Has an Environmental Impact Report been submitted? It’s for the children, don’t you know.
Those are accessories being sold separate, can’t give away the whole business plan.
I will tell you the Bill Clinton doll dressed in women’s lingerie is looking to be a big seller.
Has Michael Bloomberg proposed a ban on them in NYC yet?
The ban didn't stop them. It just made their use more clandestine.
$500 fine for using one in California though. There is a drought don’t cha know.
How have I lived my whole life without one of these gadgets? ........... Oh wait, I have never filled a balloon with water and I have never wanted to.
What is wrong with me? :(
He is still dealing with Kramer's oil filled ball.
I remember having water balloon fights as a kid. Those weren’t allowed where you grew up?
I have never filled a balloon with water and I have never wanted to.
What is wrong with me? :(
This may take some time.
Have you ever danced in the rain ?
Are you a Vegan ?
When entering a Highway, do you yield or merge ?
It's gonna be a bust.
Until the attorneys get involved, someone will get hurt using his product and they will try to take his zillions away
I am so old I don’t remember balloons. :)
To answer your questions:
The worst was when someone managed to pop you one right on the ear. That calls for some garden-hose-jetstream-setting style revenge.
That’s cook, but here’s something we can all use. Best way to cut watermelon...
A couple years ago I bought a Bug-A-Salt gun from the inventor on Kick Starter
I spent hours filling water balloons on the 4th.
Your question, “What is wrong with me?” can only be answered through the process of elimination.
Your honest answers are imperative.
Have you ever blamed your fart on someone else ?
When backing up in your car, do you look over your shoulder or use the mirrors ?
Are you a “Stacker” of stuff or is everything neatly sorted ?
Have you ever shot at wild critters from your porch ?
In answer to your questions::
Yes, this morning
Like the pocket hose?
Sure, until the government swoops in and puts a stop to the fun.
Why do people want to take away the best parts of childhood. The whole point is that it took time to fill the water balloons and some broke while making them. This kept the ammo building to a minimum, but we stilll had fun doing it.
I have never heard of adults making water balloons for kids to use.
There are a lot of things parents are now doing with their kids that are strange and not a little perplexing.
While walking my dog the other night, I ran across a an empty SUV with the engine running in front of a neighbor’s house and a woman with her children toilet papering the front yard. When I commented about her great parenting skills, she and her children took great offense. She also said that it was the home of a friend.
With friends like these ..... anyway, I hope my comment made her think later on, after she got off her high horse.

Yeah, until someone tries to do a hundred balloons in cold weather and the o-rings fail to snap shut, with disastrous results.
