Behind the design


The way balloons zip around when they're released is super fun, but we wondered if we could harness that motion — so we strapped on wheels, added airbrush art, and the balloon car was born!

I’m give it 4 1/2 stars it was simple to use and the cars went real fast. Don’t hard to star it won’t Necessarily go in the direction that I had it pointed into.

Obviously needed assistance in construction ... air brush did not work well ... so improvised ... 5 year old learned balloon blowing and holding air inside... the race made it all worthwhile! Lots of fun! Lots of learning taking place.

Kids enjoyed building them especially using the stencils and airbrushing the front of the car. They ran out of air quickly trying to race them though.
