How balloons are made – The Magic of Making

How are balloons made? In this video from The Magic of Making, a series of short films for kids created in partnership with with BBC Worldwide, we begin with a history lesson about Kew Gardens and stolen rubber trees from Brazil, and continue on with two fascinating factory tours. See how latex party balloons and nylon hot air balloons are made. The music of Johann Strauss accompanies the cheeky narration.

Next: A life-size T-Rex dinosaur made of balloons, SciFri goes to Macy’s Parade Studio, Balloons – How It’s Made, and how to make a hot air balloon.
