Advertising inflatables, or advertising balloons which they are commonly called, gives the stressful fast-paced world a much needed separation from reality for a short enough time to put a smile on even the grumpiest face. Standing next to a giant 50-foot tall brachiosaurus or a colossal 75-foot long alligator achieves what few things in life can do, bringing back childlike memories of encountering something only young, imaginative minds could have dreamed about. The surreal nature of these inflatables tug at the inner child within each one of us reminding us what it was like to think so innocently at the possibilities of what creatures the world could possible hold.
Yes, I know I am talking about inflatables, but where else can you see and touch something which so closely resembles a scene from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Only naming a few, giant inflatables have been used in movies, commercials, décor at theme parks, parties, special events and of course the classic parade.

This video shows how we create one of these giants.
