ZURU to Premiere BUNCH O BALLOONS PARTY at Toy Fair New York
New Game-Changing Self-Sealing Party Balloons are Latest Addition to the Award-Winning Brand

NEW YORK (February 15, 2019) -  The award-winning ZURU Bunch O Balloons brand is set to erupt as leading international toy company ZURU™ debuts Bunch O Balloons Self-Sealing Party Balloons.  The latest party-changing innovation fills, ties and strings 40 balloons in only 40 seconds. This brand extension will change how people set up for parties and events forever.

ZURU Bunch O Balloons Self-Sealing Party Balloons premieres Saturday from Toy Fair New York at ZURU’s booth #2573.

With ZURU Bunch O Balloons Self-Sealing Party Balloons there is no more blowing, no more tying and no need to add ribbon or string! Simply attach the balloon stems to the Electric Party Pump and press go! Within seconds, ZURU Bunch O Balloons Party Balloons will fill and self-tie with ease and convenience.

Bunch O Balloons Party takes the time and hassles out of blowing up party balloons,” said Anna Mowbray, COO, ZURU. “Like its predecessor, Bunch O Balloons Water,  the original self-tying and quick filling water balloons, we’re confident Bunch O Balloons Party will revitalize and ignite the Celebrations category.  It’s a game-changer when it comes to anything to do with party-planning, setting-up and having fun! As a mom of three myself, I know too well how time-consuming and challenging it is to blow up enough balloons to keep everyone happy”.

ZURU Bunch O Balloons Self-Sealing Party Balloons are reusable and refillable and come in various colors and themes.  In addition, they can also be filled using a helium tank or an air compressor.

Available beginning today at, the ZURU Bunch O Balloons Party Starter Pack comes complete with the Electric Party Pump, 48 Self-Sealing Party Balloons, helium tank adaptor and fast-fill hose attachment for other inflatables, for $29.99 plus postage. 

ZURU Bunch O Balloons Party product will hit retail stores starting with Walmart USA beginning May 2019.

“The same innovative design, production automation and engineering that made ZURU Bunch O Balloons Water a staple of summer fun is destined to change the party and celebrations category forever,” said  Nick Mowbray, co-CEO, ZURU. “This has been a 4-year labor of love from our talented engineering team, who have completely automated the production process enabling us to bring this revolutionary product to market at an exceptionally competitive price”.

ZURU Bunch O Balloons water balloons won back-to-back Toy of the Year (TOTY) awards in the Active/Outdoor Toy category.  In 2017, the company earned the esteemed recognition for ZURU Bunch O Balloons, the global Kickstarter sensation and innovative water balloon line that creates over 100 water balloons in 60 seconds with a patented and innovative design.  In 2018, the ZURU Bunch O Balloons Filler/Soaker brought home the win for the brand. The Filler/Soaker can fill up ZURU Bunch O Balloons without a hose and doubles as a water blaster. 

According to the NPD Group, ZURU Bunch O Balloons became the #1 selling toy of the year in 2016, an achievement reached after only six months on sale.  Since its introduction, over 50 million units have been sold worldwide with more than seven billion water balloons popped to date.
