Our balloon product section has been closed due to a world wide Helium shortage. A world shortage of the gas, which has applications in science and medicine, is said to have forced major suppliers to end its sales for party use.

Shortage of supply of the gas had already meant postponement of work involving some of the UK's brain scanning equipment, where liquid helium is used as a coolant for the magnets essential for the machines’ operation.

The gas is also used to make optical fibres and LCD screens. The Earth has a limited supply of it, which is released as a by-product of the petrochemical industry.

We are sorry for any inconvience and if the situation changes our balloon products will be active again on this website.
