“No Strings Attached”
These String-less Heart Balloons, Star Balloons, and Round Balloons, Mylar balloons, foil balloons, party balloons, helium balloons, are neutral buoyancy balloons that can easily be set to float or fly at any height you wish!
EDUCATIONAL NEUTRAL BUOYANCY TOYS NEUTRAL BUOYANCY TOYS SCIENTIFIC FEATURES   TEACHES PRINCIPLES OF THE PHYSICS OF LIGHTER THAN AIR GASES   •	HELIUM GAS -   He  IS NUMBER TWO ON THE PERIODIC TABLE CHART.    Helium is the second smallest molecule. Unlike it's smaller competitor, Hydrogen, it is  non-flammable, non-toxic, non-radioactive, naturally occurring and environmentally friendly gas. In the USA it is drilled for in the Texas and Oklahoma from natural gas wells that are encased in radioactive rock. The rocks decay over millions of years and release Helium molecules.  The helium gas accumulates in the same pocket as the natural gas.  Both are recovered together and then later separated.  The size of the molecule is why Helium filled products slowly lose their lift. Helium even escapes from the lead-lined steel tanks that it is stored in.   EXTREMELY SMALL MOLECULE. IN TIME, LEAKS THROUGH ANY CONTAINER MATERIAL.  RUBBER BALLOONS - DEFLATE IN ONE-THREE DAYS.  METALLIZED FOIL BALLOONS - DEFLATE OVER SEVERAL WEEKS.   •	NEUTRAL BUOYANCY POINT (FLOATING CONDITION)     •	UNIQUE ADJUSTABLE COUNTER WEIGHT SYSTEM US PATENT #9,480,930  •	DETACHING GUMMED TABS OF COUNTER WEIGHT SYSTEM REDUCES TOTAL WEIGHT OF FLOATABLE AND FLOATABLE RISES.  •	ADDING GUMMED TABS TO COUNTER WEIGHT SYSTEM INCREASES TOTAL WEIGHT OF FLOATABLE AND FLOATABLE SINKS.  •	WHEN THE FLOATABLES TOTAL WEIGHT (COUNTER WEIGHT PLUS ENVELOPE) EQUALS EXACTLY THE LIFT OF THE HELIUM GAS, THEN "NEUTRAL BUOYANCY" IS ESTABLISHED AND THE FLOATABLE "HOVERS".  NEITHER RISING OR •	FALLING BECAUSE IT IS FLOATING ON A LAYER OF COOLER AIR.   •	TEMPERATURE CHANGES    HIGH TEMPERATURE - HELIUM EXPANDS, ENVELOPE INFLATES, FLOATABLE GOES DOWN.   LOW TEMPERATURE - HELIUM CONTRACTS, ENVELOPE DEFLATES, FLOATABLE GOES UP.   •	WEATHER (BAROMETRIC) CHANGES    HIGH SYSTEM (SUNNY AND CLEAR) - HELIUM CONTRACTS, ENVELOPE DEFLATES, FLOATABLE GOES UP. LOW SYSTEM (RAINY AND CLOUDY) - HELIUM EXPANDS, ENVELOPE INFLATES,  FLOATABLE GOES DOWN.   •	ALTITUDE (BAROMETRIC) CHANGES   LOW ALTITUDES - HELIUM CONTRACTS, ENVELOPE DEFLATES, FLOATABLE GOES UP.  HIGH ALTITUDES - HELIUM EXPANDS, ENVELOPE INFLATES, FLOATABLE GOES DOWN. Physics teachers say that FANTASTIC FLOATABLES are the finest way to visually demonstrate Zero- Gravty and how the changes in barometric pressure and temperature affect air density and buoyancy. Contractors use them as visual tracking aids to locate thermal loss and to chart air currents for ventilation and heating purposes. Salesmen who use them as calling cards say that “when your “card” follows your prospect around the office for weeks they are never forgotten”. SCIENTIFIC

People have found literally hundreds of ways to incorporate FANTASTIC FLOATABLES unusual properties into their work and play.
