Are Helium Balloons Worth It?


There’s nothing like the magic of balloons to lift your spirits, whether it’s a party or a birthday. But are helium balloons worth it? This is a question that we at Wonder Balloons Malaysia have been asked many times by people who are planning an event and trying to decide if they should use helium. In this article, we will try to answer this question by looking at some different factors that might affect your decision about using helium balloons for your event

Helium Balloons – Worth The Money or Not?

The purpose of helium balloons is to make your party or event more exciting. They’re a fun way to decorate the venue, and most people love getting one as a souvenir.

However, their high cost can be off-putting for those who aren’t sure if they really want one. If you have an event coming up and you’re considering buying some helium balloons, here’s what you need to know:

What are Helium Balloons?

Helium balloons can be our regular latex balloon or a giant PVC balloon with a string attached at the bottom so that they can be tied anywhere desired. They’re filled with helium gas until they float off into the sky where they can be seen defying gravity!. You’ll often see them tied on the ground or fences, but some people also like to hang them from ceilings or even attach them to cars!

Why Are They So Expensive?

The main reason why these balloons are so expensive is because of the global helium gas market prices. Since 2019, prices have risen by more than 300% due to global shortages, limited supply, high demands and geopolitical uncertainties. So when we consider using helium balloons, during celebrations such as birthdays/graduations etcetera, we must consider the price we have to pay.

To Helium Or Not To Helium?

  • If you are having a party, helium balloons are a must. They’re far more lively but last much shorter than their air-filled counterparts.
  • Helium balloons are more expensive than air filled balloons. A balloon costs about MYR0.3 per pc in most places, but the helium itself will cost you another MYR5 per balloon. For example: if you’re buying a 100pc pack of 12inch balloons at any balloon shop in Malaysia for MYR30 each, you can expect to pay an extra MYR500 just to fill them with helium.
  • Air filled balloons tend to last much longer than Helium filled ones—they have been known to stay up for weeks at time without breaking down or losing their shape! However, the joy of a balloon floating up in the sky cannot be compare with a regular air filled balloon lying on the ground!

Is Helium Really Worth It?

The short answer is yes, helium balloons are worth it. Helium balloons are generally more expensive than air filled balloons and there is a good reason for that: Helium is a non-renewable resource. When you buy a balloon using helium, you’re paying for the earth’s natural gas. The production of this gas costs billions of dollars each year; therefore, it makes sense that its price tag should be higher than that of traditional balloons filled with air.

The long answer? That depends on how often you plan on using them! If your child has been begging for helium balloons at their birthday party then by all means go ahead and splurge! If not… consider buying either an air-filled or water-filled balloon instead (more on these options later). These alternatives will keep their eyes lit up while also saving money in the process – win/win!

How Much Are Helium Balloons?

If you’re considering using a helium balloon, there are only two questions that matter: How much does a DIY helium tank cost? And how much does it cost to fill up a balloon at a balloon store like Wonder Balloons?

The first one is easy—it’s MYR130 to get a DIY disposable tank of helium gas, which will last for about 40-50 balloons. The second question is more complicated and depends on the size of your balloons and what type of material it’s made out of (for example, latex balloons cost less than foil). This means prices can range from MYR5-MYR10 per fill-up with a regular-sized party store foil balloon or latex balloon. However, many vendors offer discounts when purchasing multiple balloons at once—for example, at Wonder Balloons Malaysia, you get a special price for 100 balloons and up – so if you’re planning an event where multiple people need floating decorations in their hands like graduation parties or proms, ask about discounted rates!
