Publish date:

A new type of 'neutral buoyancy' party balloon is coming to the UK next year.

US-based Fantastic Floatables has struck a deal with a worldwide party supplier to bring the 'high-tech' products to the UK.

A statement sent to ToyNews read: "We are planning a debut early next year through a major worldwide party supply distributor with lots more new models. 

"Currently they are only available through our website. We are the only source of these in the world.

"[The supplier] is planning a large publicity campaign and want to surprise the industry."

Consumers can attach adhesive weights to the balloons, which appear as if they are floating in mid-air.
