Bunch O Ballons is one of ZURU’s biggest succeses, and one of the most successful outdoor toys of all time. What started as a Kickstarter campaign from a father in Texas, has now become a global success, with multiple awards and more than 5 billion water balloons sold worldwide. Josh Malone raised over $1m in funding but still faced the challenge of being able to manufacture his new invention at the scale and speed required. ZURU partnered with Josh and within 6 months designed the very machines, that now produce over 280,000 bunches a day – all without human intervention. This ensured Bunch O Balloons could be produced at scale and to the highest of quality, and backed by a huge global marketing effort turned the item into a global phenomenon. Bunch O Balloons has won multiple awards globally, including two coveted TOTY (Toy of the Year) awards and was NPD USA’s Best Selling Toy of 2016.
