I had a baby shower to plan and was making a balloon arch, so I decided to search Amazon for "balloon pumps." I had no idea electric pumps existed, so I was excited when I came across this. As soon as I got it I opened up the box and fell in love LOL. I was able to inflate two balloons at a time within SECONDS. It was so easy that my 6 year old was able to help. Needles to say, we spent about 30 minutes inflating and deflating balloons because we were having fun using this machine. I'd never built a balloon arch before, so I had no idea how time consuming it was. If I did not have this balloon pump, and planned to blow it up by mouth or with a manual balloon pump, the balloon arch would not have happened. I definitely suggest this for anyone who is planning a party, or to anyone who has their own event planning/decorating business.
