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 have boy girl twins, and it is sometimes challenging to find something that they will both enjoy and get excited over. This activity kept them both engaged, asking questions, experimenting with straw size and air flow, and even creating obstacles for the cars to drive over. It was amazing to watch their brains be so active!

This is our favorite kit from KiwiCo so far! Both kids, ages 2 and 6, loved playing with the balloon cars. They have held up to a lot of enthusiastic play the last few days! I was on a call for work when they started playing with these, and at first I heard shrieks that I thought were arguing. Then I realized they were shrieks of utter delight. Definitely recommend this kit!
