Lexi Glenn was just that age when she invented the Pumponator. She was determined to find a parent-approved way to fill water balloons by herself – without soaking the bathroom floor or leaving a swath of soggy grass by the garden hose. Rummaging around in her grandmother Donna Ramere’s garage one day, Lexi discovered an old garden sprayer and saw its potential to make quick work of filling water balloons. After lots of design modifications, the Pumponator was born.
Destined to be loved by kids everywhere, the Pumponator comes packed with 500 balloons and strings for tying. The pump apparatus on top (which still shows shades of grandma’s garden sprayer) can easily fill balloons with air or water. Just pump the handle to build up some pressure, then pull the trigger. It’s perfect for a quick summer cool-off, and it’s portable so you can take it along on your next beach outing or neighborhood party. This summer if the kids are hot, bored, tired and proclaim there’s nothing to do, bring on the Pumponator and turn on the fun.
