This is an 18-inch (1.5 foot) balloon that comes adorned with colorful ribbons and that comes with a puppy and several 5-inch latex balloons inside. Yes, you read that correctly. This puppy stands at 12 inches tall and is delivered inside of a real, see-through balloon (ship-in-a-bottle style) with a string loop at the top that allows you to hang it wherever you wish. Since it is filled with air, the balloon will last somewhere between several weeks and a year (depending on whether or not the balloon is kept in cool or darker locations). Once the balloon has deflated, the puppy is yours to keep! This product is made-to-order, one at a time, so yours will always be brand new. The balloon is very durable and we guarantee that it will be delivered intact and inflated.
