Good idea for a sustainable water game. Nice not to have to worry about always having balloons on hand. Fun to fill, and they don't leak!
We've bought a few brands of these because they are fun for kids and adults. This is our favorite brand so far because the magnets are sealed. In the others, when the magnets start to wear out, they fall out and get lost or stick to the opposite side and you have to manually reinsert them, only to fall out again. These stay together well and last longer than competitors we've tried. Highly recommend!
OK I was so curious to try these! Took a second to figure out the best rhythm for filling them up and using them. What worked well for us was 5 gallon buckets filled with water for each "team." Overall, they were a blast and had a lot of fun. We did have an incident where one kid accidentally hit another in the face with it. Of course, the magnet/lip closure area is what hit him near his eye so we had some cries but he was ok. It made me a little nervous. They weren't trying to hit faces but things happen when kids get excited! I think we will still buy 'traditional' water balloons for some summer events when we have larger groups but we are hanging on to these. I LOVE that they came with a drawstring bag so I didn't have to think about trying to find a way to store them
To much fun well made I like kids do to thanks
These reusable water balloons are so much fun and kept my kids entertained for hours! They are super easy to use. Definitely beats picking up tiny broken water balloons pieces all over the yard! They are magnetically sealed so may not be suitable for small children who put things in their mouths. Also make sure you leave them out to dry completely before storing, as they would be very prone to mold if not fully dried. Overall these water balloons are such a smart idea! Highly recommended
Our whole family loves playing with these. We play with them in the pool. Mostly throwing them at a wall and then letting them famm back in the water. They fill right back up and close to throw again. They're made really well and the magnets and plastic seems like they will hold up really well.
Sooooo much better than messy disposable water balloons.
We purchased these this summer and our kids have had so much fun with them. Would highly recommend. Thinking about buying more.
My 4 and 5 year old love these, had a lot of fun. Easy to use. Haven’t had any issues yet (fingers crossed)
We got these as a birthday present for a 6 year old boy. He was able to fill them up himself and had a blast playing with the reusable water balloons over and over again outside and in the bath. His mom also let me know these make for excellent pretend Pokemon balls too.
My daughters love play with these! Great for kids! They play in the bath and pool. But we have lost a few at a lake because when they’re filled they sink!
My kids are love it!
I would say it’s durable, only one did break since they playing with them.
And yes, easy to use, even my 3 years old can handle it.
Only thing, you should be careful with targeting, because it can hit.
These are just fantastic! I’m so jealous that I didn’t have these when I was a kid! - They are the best way to have a water balloon fight! - Soft and durable so they won’t damage things and no tiny pieces of rubber balloons left in my yard to have to go around and pick up afterwards! My kids LOVE these! We’ve even gotten more to stock up! The magnetic rims of the two halves hold remarkably well and are easy to throw and can soak you when you get hit with one! - I found that the best way to fill them is to open them up and then let them close by themselves underneath the water! (Just let the magnets pull the two halves together instead of trying to push them closed with your hands!)
We got these water balloons and had a blast!
No more tying and filling and tying and filling for hours! They are strong enough to hold, but the gentle pressure of a toss or drop opens the magnets so they are still effective, some of the magnets were kind of strong so sometimes a ballon would drop, pop open and reclose half full, not a deal breaker, but it is known to happen.
The one thing to be aware of is not to play with these near gravel or sidewalks as the silicone can rip or puncture, we did lose a few this way! But the balloons themselves are so much fun and they really are worth not having to use all those balloons one time only to toss them out!
No more having to spend all that time after the water fights doing the mini balloon cleanup, or spending two hours tying up bowls full of balloons for 10 minutes of fun!
great value for you $ almost stay together too good you have to really hit em to pop, they hold together great and refill very easy!!! 10/10!!
They are so Amazing !! no more clean up !! the kids love them ! The parents Love them !! worth every penny !
Very happy with these! Thought they were a bit pricy but so worth it. We have tested them out some, but I bought them once it was already getting chilly, so we haven’t had a full-blown fight with them.
BUT they seem like they will hold up well. They also come apart pretty well on impact as long as they are thrown with a little umph.
It will be so nice to not have to collect the little water balloon scraps from my yard and driveway. Looking forward to buying more of these (as soon as the batch we have is well and fully tested in an all out battle!).
Got as a Christmas stocking stuffer and the kids use them all the time. Super fun gift.
These are great, purchased for the summer but kids play in tub. Easy for my 3 year old to open and fill up with water. Need to throw with some force to get it to open. Magnets have been holding up after every day use for a few months. my 1 year old loves to push on it until the water burst open. So great for all ages.
These balloons are such a time saver if you love water balloon fights! There's no filling, tying, or cleaning up little pieces for days. We loved them in the pool especially!
I ordered these reusable water balloons out of pure curiosity & I’m glad that I did - they are absolutely amazing! They do not leak or break easily, but aren’t hard to pull apart when it’s time to refill. They were packaged well & are very fun to use. I recommend this purchase! We had a blast using them- kids and adults!
TIP; They fill up best when fully submerged into water, and break easily when thrown against a harder surface.
We couldn't wait for summer so we played with them as soon as they arrived and we are super impressed. Just as described. Literally takes a second to refill and made with very strong material. No leaks! The kids are having a blast and this will make a great gift for some of our upcoming birthdays!
I wasn’t sure what I would think of these, but I got a couple out for my kids to use at bathtime tonight and every one of my four kids (ages 2-8) have really enjoyed them! I haven’t told them that they’re supposed to be water balloons yet (we’ll save that for warmer weather) but they are really satisfying to play with and I know they’ll be heavily used outside too. My son is even doing experiments with sinking and floating as we speak.
A couple of specific notes:
- It might not seem like magnets would be enough to seal them, but they are! Even with air inside, they’ll pop when you squeeze hard similar to a balloon.
- When filled with water, you can squeeze them carefully so that the water squirts in a particular direction.
- Without having thrown them at anyone, I don’t think it’ll hurt any more than a regular water balloon. The magnets are deep in the flexible silicone ring and I doubt anyone will feel them.
What a hit with the kids! My kids instantly broke these out and had a balloon fight. Around 10 kids in the neighborhood ended up at our house several times this past weekend and it was all squeals of delights. It was very easy for the kids to fill these over and over and over again in a bucket, truly genius! They close well and soft for when they make contact with their opponent. This will be our new go to present for birthdays.
I surprised our daughter with these and she LOVES THEM!!! As parents we LOVE the no mess left behind to clean after a fabulous balloon fight! So thankful we found this handy invention!!! Summertime fun is sure to be had and no worries of clean up afterwards (that makes a momma happy!!😍😍) Honestly, even on the chilly weather day we totally tried these out and had a freakin blast!!!🤣🤣😍😍
These are fabulous for any event or just to have as a quick game for some outdoor play!!!
I love that our daughter can do this all by herself and I don't have any worries I would with traditional balloons. Safety is a must and we feel confident with these!!!
FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS!!!!
I bought these reusable water balloons because let’s face it, it is a-lot of work to fill up balloons with water only to have them pop within minutes. These can be used over and over. It’s so easy to refill them with water. Simply throw them back in the water and when it fills up with water it closes on its own. So awesome my boys LOVE them!
