WHY JUMPING JACKS?

Creating balloon displays and creations is not just a job for us, it’s a passion! We consider it to be an art form! From the simplest of designs to the most elaborate, we love nothing more than creating something that is not just an ‘item’ but it is something that makes people feel. We have made people smile, laugh, cry, emotional and brought people together with such a simple gift or display. In recent times with the current situation, our balloons have been a great way to let someone know they are missed with a personalised message or to add that extra sparkle to a lockdown celebration.

We really take pride in what we do! Just blowing up a balloon is not good enough for us. We want the best quality, we want to know the best ways of creating displays, we want to improve our skills all of the time and we hope this shows to our customers. We hope to keep advancing and adding more balloon string (or ribbon) to our bow so we can be the top of our game and only offer the best for our wonderfully loyal and supportive customers who are trusting us with their special celebrations and gifts.

These are one of my favourite designs to create for our customers as no two are the same.

THE HISTORY OF BALLOONS

Ever since the first rubber balloon was invented in 1824 by Michael Faraday, it seems like balloons have been a focal point of every celebration. Everyone loves balloons — whether they are plain, shaped, filled with helium, or filled with water. But did you know that they actually came to be because of a failed laboratory experiment?

Faraday found that he could make two sheets of rubber stick together and hold air.

By 1825 Thomas Hancock (a British inventor and rubber manufacturer) began distributing balloon-making kits that included sheets of rubber and syringes. In 1847, London entrepreneurs were selling the first balloons.

Balloons, in their various forms, were invented for use in military communications, scientific experiments, and transportation, but it wasn’t long before people began to have fun with them. The military use of balloons might not fit the fun and carefree idea that we have in relation with balloons today. At the start of the Cold War in the 1950s, activists in Western Europe used balloons for propaganda purposes. They would float east over Eastern Europe, and would then release newspapers and pamphlets. Today, South Korean activists are using the same balloon method to get information to those in North Korea.

O.K., now we know a bit more about the origin of the balloons, the question is:

Why do we love celebrating things with balloons?

Balloons used to have specific meanings for each of the colours, much like roses do today. They were an inexpensive way to show someone that you really cared.

Did you know that balloons are actually harvested from rubber trees? However, making balloons does not actually harm the tree — they are completely sustainable!

Whatever you are using balloons for — to decorate for a birthday party, to let someone know you care, for a milestone occasion, as a special memory balloon for a loved one, balloons of all shapes and sizes are one of the best ways to capture that celebratory spirit. The balloon’s style — no matter what — captures just a little bit of magic in our everyday lives.

We absolutely love balloons for all occasions — no matter what! Whether it’s something simple or big and extravagant, balloons are so versatile and can be personalised and tailored to any space, theme, occasion or colour scheme!

BALLOONS EFFECT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

Why Jumping Jacks have decided to switch to only air filled balloon creations and displays and will no longer be offering helium floating balloons.

ABOUT HELIUM BALLOONS

We all love helium balloons? Don’t we?

Pretty floaty things that cheaply cheer up a dreary event room for hire or create a lovely, colourful party atmosphere at home.

Personalise them and someone will feel a little warmer around the heart – Happy Birthday Nan! Lucie and Dave’s Wedding! Poppa’s Little Princess! Give your loved one a heart shaped balloon for Valentine’s Day… awww….

And then, when we’ve had a few drinks, there’s the added fun of undoing the balloon and breathing in the helium, and speaking in a weird high voice for a few sentences. We’ve all done it, it’s ridiculous and very very funny. Until I found out in can actually kill you or even burst a lung.

Helium balloons come in different types. The foil balloons (mylar) have caused an enormous number of serious power cuts. It’s because they float away and when they come into contact with power lines, they can cause a power surge or a short circuit. Result… fires, melted electrical wires, power cuts, possible injuries, damage to properties, and enormous inconvenience all round.

We’ve all done balloon releases in the past, I’m guilty of this myself… that was until I realised the effect on the environment! I couldn’t continue once I was made aware of this. Consumed by guilt.

Released helium/floating balloons negatively impact our environment by littering streams, lakes and beaches. It’s basically the same as throwing them directly on the ground or into the sea/ocean.

When the balloons make their way into the water, their tattered ends and floating pieces can resemble jelly fish or other sea life eaten by marine animals.

When the pieces of latex/mylar are mistaken for food and ingested, they can get lodged in the digestive tract, inhibiting animals ability to eat and causing a slow and painful death by starvation.

When balloons float down into trees or power lines, birds have been found injured with ribbons wrapped around their beaks or wings.

Even though they are marked as biodegradable or eco-friendly they can still take years to disintegrate, therefore, the best way to dispose of balloons is with household or commercial waste where they will decompose in landfill. Once finished with, deflate and cut the balloons and ribbons into small pieces and put in the bin.

We would love to ask our customers to dispose of all air filled balloon displays responsibly to help save our environment and our wildlife.
