Olden days "blow balloon"


I used to love to buy this when I was young.. I can't believe 'balloons' like these still exist. Last time the pictures of the packaging were different. Nowadays they come in all sorts of design. I once saw one in Power Rangers in the market. Today, I walked past and saw Hello Kitty ones.


My girls love to blow these 'balloons'. I am not sure what you call it. Its like between the 'balloons' and the 'bubbles'. You squeeze some out and pat it on one end of the straw and blow. The smell is horrible but as kids we don't really mind. When you noticed that there is a leak in the 'balloon' you will quickly find the hole and stick them together by smacking them with your lips... My girls will usually blow various sizes and make them into some kinda figure, animals, snowman, or just stick them together. It really smells horrible but it doesn't seemed toxic.. errr I think... hahaha
