During the remaining hours of its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, Piano, Texas-based company Tinnus Enterprises raised $929,160 from 21,455 for its fun-for-all product, Bunch O Balloons.
As previously reported, founder and father of eight, Josh Malone, took to the crowdfunding giant to raise only $10,000. Within days, the campaign not only reached the initial goal, but continued to be a huge hit on the platform. In collaboration with his children, Malone brainstormed and experimented to create a device that would allow his rather large family to prepare for their super fun water balloon fights more easily and quickly.
Malone noted, “Living in Texas, we have some pretty hot summers. Water balloon fights have always been fun for my crew, and it’s not exactly easy to play outside without some form of water. Bunch O Balloons has given my family the opportunity to prepare for water wars more quickly.”
One pack of Bunch O Balloons features three stems, with each containing 37 balloons. Each balloon is attached to a stem by a hose coupling and then secured to the coupling by a small o-ring. All uses have to do is simply screw the stem onto a hose and turn the water on, allowing the balloons to fill simultaneously. When the balloons are full, the user lightly shakes the system and each balloon falls off, cinched shut by its o-ring, Users can easily filly and tie 100 balloons in just one minute.
Malone adds, “I hope the convenience of this device will give parents who may not have that much extra time more opportunities to get out and have fun with their kids. It’s never been this easy. There’s pretty much no reason not to go out and play with water balloons now.”
