Mylar balloons are also known as foil or metallic balloons. These balloons are made of a material called "mylar" which is a durable metallic material that has a degree of stretch. Metallic balloons are generally filled with helium so they can float, though their are smaller balloons that are filled with air and then attatched to sticks. These types of balloons are most commonly used at fairs, and other celebrations for children, so that the balloon looks fun without floating away during the fun.
Manufacturers have almost perfected the art of producing mylar balloons; the designs, sizes, and shapes are incredible. Mylar balloons will contract in cold temperatures but will regain their shape when brought back into a warm environment. The most popular size mylar balloon is the 18" round shape. While the round is the most common, there are hundreds of shapes now pouring out of manufacturers so that any themed party can look extra festive. From giant hears and stars, to characters of all kinds, you are sure to find the mylar balloon for your next party.
