lovely, and then not.
on 29 July 2013
I first ordered balloons through this link in July 2013, and had this to say: Lovely assortment of colours, good size, easy to inflate and lasted well. I'll definitely use these balloons again. Super duper.
So, a few weeks ago I wanted to buy more balloons and because I was so impressed last time I just went into my order history , found the previous order of balloons, clicked on the link and ordered some more. This time they were not nearly as nice, the colours not so good, not as strong , not as big , and they had the most awful taste when blowing them up. So I checked to see if I had ordered the right product, and found that indeed this time they had come from a different supplier (Bombay trading instead of Special Occasions ltd) and had cost me less. So I thought I had just somehow mistakenly ordered the wrong thing. So I went back to my July 2013 order again, clicked on the product link and was fed through to a product site entitled 50 Assorted Colour 12 Inch Latex Balloons, but this time again with a different supplier at a much cheaper price than the original balloons.
My point is this- the products being sent by these different suppliers although listed as the same thing under amazon, are not identical products- hence the massive inconsistency in reviews here. So, if you are reading this review, or any of them, you may as well know that you're wasting your time; it's unlikely that you'll receive the same product as the review you're reading.
