Last week we got a step closer to introducing our Personalised balloon caricatures by showcasing one of comedian Russell Kane on Twitter….
……and then taking it down to wait for him in his dressing room at The Palace Theatre, Westcliff to see what sort of reaction it got. In a word – amazing!
Russell Kane liked it enough to post the pic above as a tweet AND pop the caricature on stage (eek) so that his Mini Me could watch the audience arrive for his show!
The link to the picture was tweeted by us a few times over a couple of days too and a staggering 2063 have had a peek at it so far.
With so many people taking an interest and oodles leaving us incredible comments we know that our personalised caricatures are going to be a ‘must have’ in 2011.
Keep an eye open for them arriving on the site soon.
Today’s challenge came via Twitter and it was for a balloon motorbike.
What do you think? Would love to know.
As always we can already see some tweaks that we will make for version 2 but liking it so far.
We have just tried to send out an email to everyone on our emailing list to let them know about our New Year Offer below.
What could be easier? Well it seems that building a lifesize balloon replica of the Eiffel Tower would be easier because although our test emails look very pretty they seem to reduce to code when they go out to more than one person.
So, if you are on our emailing list and have had some odd emails from us this morning we wanted to apologise and reassure you that your computer has not started to have a meltdown and you are not being hacked into it is just a poor Balloon Baboon trying to get a very simple email to you and failing
We ran a competition on Twitter this week to win one of our newest additions to our balloonshop.
It seemed easy enough - all you had to do was guess what we were going to make next which was the cute robot above, an homage to WALL E and was revealed yesterday.
Answers during day one included a biscuit, golf clubs, a fly, a sandcastle and even Michael McIntyre so we decided to include a very small clue – a teeny tiny bit of a picture of the new robot – to help tweeters along.
Could you guess what we had made from this close up?
The odd and amazing answers continued, giving us a lot of laughs as well as a whole list of things to try making in the future.
Amazingly one tweeter was able to guess what we were making from this picture and a second person figured it out all by themselves.
To protect the people that they have chosen to receive the winning deliveries those two clever tweeters will remain anonymous but keep an eye out for a large and very light box arriving on your doorstep incase a balloon robot is coming your way.
We would love to hear what you think of our balloon robot so please do leave your comments below
