Product Review – My Own Pet Balloon

Kids love to imagine. A child can take a pile of                                              BeFunky_download (5).png
sticks and rocks and turn them into mighty medieval
castles. Just about anything can be turned into a
toy, and just about any toy can be a source for
creativity and imagination. My Own Pet Balloons
proceed on that notion that children don’t need
huge, expensive, and elaborate contraptions to
have fun, and that sometimes, the best tool is
actually the cheapest and simplest one.

Let’s take a look at some of the features

In the most basic sense, My Own Pet Balloons are balloons shaped and colored like numerous types of animals. They are meant to be filled with helium and are weighted precisely to keep them hovering close enough to the ground that their attached legs touch it, giving the appearance of actually walking. Kids can get the feeling of pulling their own pet panda, pony, duck, cow, bunny, or any of the other types behind them. There are currently over 30 types of pet balloons with more being added quickly and regularly. The design of My Own Pet Balloons is exceedingly simple, and their popularity is a testament that simple can definitely be a good thing.

How Much?

My Own Pet Balloons carry a price tag of about $10, plus or minus a couple dollars depending on the seller. Purchasers may have to pay for the initial helium fill, and each pet will need to be refilled with helium periodically – once every 1 or 2 weeks, on average – to maintain its shape and ability to properly float.

Things We Like About My Own Pet Balloons

What’s not to love about cute, inflatable animals that hover along the ground like real animals? The potential for imagination and fun is nearly limitless. The balloons themselves are made of quality materials, and the precise weighting for each type is impressive. The price is also a plus as parents will have less of an issue with their kids collecting many different members of the set, or the entire set altogether. The sheer number of members in the set is great and truly lets kids pick and choose their favorites.

Things We Did Not Like About My Own Pet Balloons

While My Own Pet Balloons are made with quality, they are, however, still balloons. As such, the proper precautions should be taken to ensure children keep them away from sharp objects and heat sources, refrain from sitting or riding them, and to refrain from doing all the other potentially damaging things kids sometimes do. Similarly, kids must be cautioned to keep a firm hold on their pets when out and about, especially if it’s windy, because their pets could blow away. The balloons are rated for children as young as 36 months, but deflated or broken balloons should be immediately removed as they present a choking hazard. Also, like any balloon, these will slowly deflate over time and will need to be refilled. This can potentially get expensive and inconvenient.

Who Would Buy My Own Pet Balloons?

Any parent of a child who loves animals, loves to pretend, or just loves balloons in general would love these! Due to their low price, they are especially good for lower-income families. Since they need to be refilled relatively frequently, it helps to live in close proximity to someplace that has a helium tank on hand, whether it is a grocery store, pharmacy, novelty store, or any similar type of place that sells balloons.


Since My Own Pet Balloons are relatively inexpensive and simple balloons, they don’t carry any sort of guarantee.

Are My Own Pet Balloons Worth the Money?

Taking into account the solid, durable construction and nearly infinite possibilities for imagination and creativity, the price tag is more than fair. The only potential drawback may be the fluctuating price of the helium needed to make them float.

Where Can I Buy My Own Pet Balloons?

The balloons are relatively new yet but are expanding at a rapid rate. Many grocery stores and novelty shops that already sold balloons have begun selling My Own Pet Balloons. The company’s main website – – provides a store located to help individuals find a seller close to them and customers will also be able to find this product on Amazon and other major online and offline retailers.
