A toy balloon or party balloon, is a small balloon mostly used for decoration advertising and child toy. Toy balloons are usually made of rubber or aluminized plastic, and inflated with air or helium. They come in a great variety of sizes and shapes, but are most commonly 10 to 30 centimetres in diameter. Toy balloons are not considered to include “sky lanterns” (hot-air paper balloons), although these too are or were used as child toys in some parts of the world.
