From the deep, dark, depths of a Twisted imagination, surface these colourful, loveable and friendly Balloon Monsters. They may look frightening, but they survive on love from the crowd, and give out long skinny balloons in exchange for hugs and laughs. Cuddling everyone from babies to grandparents these giant creations will embrace you in their monster arms as they move through the crowd, and yes they do squeak when they are squeezed. Standing over 2.5 metres tall and twisted completely out of many hundreds of vibrantly coloured balloons, they are truly a spectacular sight. Let yourself be wooed by the Balloon Monsters, get a selfie because when they are in town no head remains unturned.

More Info


Monsters can be built on site or transported ready made to the event. The monsters take 6-7 hours each to build, or 2.5 hours with two people working. They contain more than 600 balloons they are expertly twisted to create these one of a kind roving sculptures. They are durable, can last for up to three days for multi-day events. They are repaired, if required, in between roving sets. They are also very mobile and can move on grass and concrete – they have even been spotted climbing stairs or hitching a ride on escalators.

They can move around the crowd giving hugs, taking pictures with people and shooting balloons out of the costumes that people can take home. In one hour they can shoot up to 100 balloons.

The balloons used are 100% biodegradable and are made from natural latex so they are completely non toxic and totally environmentally friendly.

The monsters can also be inner lit using programmed full colour LED strip lighting, providing a spectacularly interactive and mobile visual light show for entertaining in the evening.

Operators are highly experienced in large crowd entertainment, busking and live theatre, providing an extremely entertaining and interactive show.

ALL MEDIA INCLUDING TELEVISION AND PHOTOGRAPHY ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE MONSTERS!!! THEY ARE BIG, COLOURFUL, INTERACTIVE AND UNIQUE!! YOU ARE GUARANTEED TO GET SOCIAL MEDIA COVERAGE WITH THESE ROVING CHARACTERS. PEOPLE WILL LITERALLY LINE UP TO TAKE PHOTOS WITH THEM.

Let’s have some fun!
