Pioneer reflects latest trends in balloon ranges

Published on: 12th August 2019

An ideal offering for toy stores, the range of Qualatex balloons is continually updated to encompass all the new and emerging must-have looks.

From llamas to unicorns, space themes to tropical cactus, and even stylish monochrome, Qualatex has a range of different style balloons under each theme, with options to suit every party and budget.

Julie Dommett, head of marketing, Pioneer Europe, commented: “We invest heavily in trend analysis to ensure we remain ahead of the curve and continuously update our range to encompass all the new and emerging must-have looks, to deliver lifestyle and in-fashion designs which consumers will love. We have a huge range of designs and price points, ensuring that retailers can offer solutions for gifts and birthday surprises, and event decorators can set a scene that’s right-on-trend, whatever the occasion.”

The llama craze is still trending and Qualatex’s pretty pastel designs are perfect for a summer party or to welcome a new baby, with a 45” Loveable Llama Microfoil balloon, llama latex balloons, and Birthday Llama or Hello Baby Llama 18” Microfoil balloons.

The Fiesta range is fun, bright and colourful. Party planners can use the 34” Rainbow Pinata balloon as the talking point, adding the Fiesta Rainbow Stripes, quirky Birthday Party Cactus, and fun Sliced Lime balloons.

Large tropical themed balloon shapes including bright toucans, tropical philodendron leaves, cute pineapples and bright flamingos will ensure a summer vibe, whatever the weather.

With the recent 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, space is dominating interiors, social media and party themes. A 37” Microfoil Adorable Astronaut and a space-themed Happy Birthday message, as well as the show stopping 3-foot Glow Stars-A-Round balloon and Contempo Stars-A-Round designs are available now.

The unicorn trend remains popular and Qualatex has a host of cheerful designs available, from the pretty 38” Magical Unicorn face shape, to gold unicorn silhouette latex balloons, to the inspirational ‘Ride a Unicorn, Swim with Mermaids, Dance with Fairies’ 18” balloon and more. Continuing the mythical theme, there are also caticorns, mermaids and narwhal options available.

For those looking to create a more sophisticated vibe, Qualatex has a huge range of stylish black and white options including the stunning marble effect of the SuperAgate latex range and Chrome latex. Ombre, the graduated flow from one colour hue to another, is everywhere – from hair to tableware, and now balloons. The Qualatex range includes a choice of different colour palettes and messages.
