HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Balloon Bonanza would be too good to be true if it works as advertised.  The packaging claims to make dozens of water balloons that basically tie themselves.

Balloon Bonanza comes with a $12.99 price tag.

It’s pretty simple. Each “bundle” of balloons has a connector you just screw right on to a garden hose.

You turn the water on and in 10 seconds you have a bundle of orange-to-baseball size water balloons.

Each balloon is tied to a stick and when it becomes engorged with water, the balloon slides off the stick.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind.

First, the water balloons aren’t very big. Second, at $12.99 a box goes in a hurry if you have a motivated bunch of kids that want to hurl water balloons at each other or some other “parent-approve” target.

But we love the Balloon Bonanza, and the kids at Camelot Pool who tested it for us liked it too. We rate it an easy “Deal.”
