I have a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old. They have rooms full of different toys and these balloons have kept their attention more so than anything. They love it when the balloons are filled and when they let go of the untied end they get to chase it around the room. They love using it as intended to bounce around and punch using the rubber band and they love it when you make squeaking noises with the untied end. Balloons came packaged 2 balloons per bag which made it nice to stash away the unused portion while not in use. We have been using them for a couple of weeks and haven’t had any pop yet. Great buy.
