Needing no introduction, it’s the infamous mushroom stomping plumber. The attention to detail is crazy with his gold buttons, black mustache and, if you look closely, there’s even the ‘M’ for Mario on his cap.

2. Master Chief

Depicting Master Chief, the hero of the massively successful Halo franchise pictured standing next to his creator. The life-size scale only amplifies the quality of this complex and intricately designed sculpture.

3, 4, and 5. Monsters

Perhaps the most impressive of all but probably not the kind of balloon sculpture you would want at a children’s party, these monsters are akin to the type of creature you would imagine lurking in the depths of the ocean.

Taken from a balloon sculpture event in Bangkok, Thailand, the sheer size of this dragon is hugely impressive. Here it is seen flying over the exhibition with it’s huge teeth, impressive wingspan and terrifying claws.

7. SpongeBob Square Pants

He lives in a pineapple that floats on the sea? He may not be good at being submerged but he’s sure a hit at parties. The life size SpongeBob wears his signature red tie, goofy teeth and sticks out his pink balloon tongue.

9.  Minions

These cheeky looking Minions don’t look so mini now that they’re full of air. These hilarious sculptures have balloon goggles, stuck up hair and of course the dungaree uniform. Invite them to your party at your own risk of mischief.

10. Hello Kitty

This adorable Hello Kitty will have the whole party wanting to pet her. She may not be as big as the other sculptures but with her pink dress, little yellow nose and trademark bow, she is definitely the cutest.

11. Pikachu

This monstrous Pikachu is a must have for any Pokémaniacs party. Made from around 350 balloons, it holds the Guinness World Record for the largest balloon costume constructed. That’s right, you can actually wear this thing.

12. Mr Potato Head

This huge replica of Toy Stories’ Mr Potato Head will keep any dinner guests amused. There are an insane amount of round brown balloons making up his body and his moustache and hat are made of black long balloons. Wonder if they detach the same as the toy.

13. Ninja Turtles

The Ninja Turtles made their first appearance in the 1980’s and became popular all over the world. Here’s Michelangelo in his trademark orange bandanna and nunchucks. With his pizza munching balloon teeth this will get the whole room shouting “COWABUNGA”.

15. Sulley and Boo (Monsters Inc)

A monsterous party deserves a monsterous sculpture. Step in Sully and Boo From Pixars’ Monsters Inc. Boo is even wearing her monster disguise with big round eyes as huge blue Sully sneaks her out of the factory.
