my kids balloons were popping as they were working on them, with only
half the balloon covered with one layer of newsprint. then more were
still popping 45 minutes later while sitting on the shelf. didn't have
any of that with the brand new balloons so i think it was because the
first batch had been sitting around for a few years.
