A short balloon description and what I think of the Unique 16″ balloon
Unique is one of the most widespread balloon brands in the world and produced by the „Latex Occidental“ company in Mexico. Those balloons are also known as „Mexico“ and „Globos“ but in the end they’re all one and the same balloons. The range of different sizes and shapes is not very huge in comparison to other distributors, but not less exciting.
The Unique 16“ is a medium sized balloon with a classic shape and a long neck. Due to its thin latex skin, the balloon feels really soft and smooth, no matter if it´s inflated or not. In fact, it´s really easy to overinflate this balloon. It can become very big with the first inflation and if you repeat this process, it gets even bigger and bigger with every new inflation. But this might also lead to the fact, that the balloon becomes unpredictable and bursts easier.
From my point of view, the great range of colors of Unique balloons is really extraordinary and beautiful. On the one hand, the different crystal colors are really intense and vivid. On the other hand, the standard colors are more discrete and delicate, but with a large selection of unusual pastel colors, for example like salmon, creme, apricot, jade.
Even though the Unique 16“ isn´t one of the strongest and most durable balloons, due to its size it´s really affordable and has a good price-performance ratio. That´s why it´s really popular by many balloon enthusiasts and these balloons often get used in a lot of looner clips.
All in all, I think that the Unique 16“ is a good and reasonable balloon. It has a classic shape, isn´t too big or too small, has an affordable price and is easy to handle. Therefore this balloon is well suited for beginners, New-Looners and everyone, who wants to give the whole thing a try. For those who want to take a crack in bursting balloons for the first time, I can recommend this balloon, because it´s not as resistant and challenging as others. So maybe you might discover the Popper in yourself…
Personally I really appreciate and love the soft and supple material and the lovely colors, especially the standard colors jade and salmon are one of my favorites.
