Balloons in one form or another have been around for centuries. But the modern latex balloon, the kind you can blow up yourself, was invented in New England during the Great Depression. A chemical engineer, frustrated in his attempts to make inner tubes from this new product — liquid latex — scrawled a cat’s head on a piece of cardboard and dipped it in the latex. When it dried, Neil Tillotson had a “cat balloon”, complete with ears. He made about 2,000 balloons and sold them on the street during Boston’s annual Patriot Day parade. In the late 1970s, silver metalized balloons were developed for the New York City Ballet. These balloons are commonly called Mylar, but they are actually made from a metalized nylon and are more expensive than latex balloons due to their durability, and ability to hold helium much, much longer.
