Cat Balloon

Traditional Kamifusen paper balloons developed in the 1890’s by the wives of fishermen. In the 1920’s Japanese manufacturers started production. They are a fun alternative to the rubber and helium balloon.

Fun activities to try with Breath Balloons:

  • Juggle a three pack ( be the first to dazzle us with this tricky challenge and post it on our Facebook page).
  • Play air tennis with a friend using your hand for the racquet.
  • See how many times you can continually tap the balloon while sitting on your hospital bed (beat our current record 153 taps).
  • Balance on your head.
  • Inflate the balloon with the least number of breaths you can.
  • Close your eyes and rest the balloon in one hand and take note of the hot air you breathe into the balloon.
  • Use them to decorate your room.
  • If you are worrying about your surgery or the boss you can try inflating and deflating the balloon to calm your nerves.
