Glue Dots allow you to attach things to balloons.
Glue Dots are a lot easier to use than rubber cement or staples.
They come in a box of 1000 glue dots on a long tape. Glue Dots might be just the thing you were looking for to speed up making fancy figures.
1000 Dot Roll = $29.50
150 Dot Roll = $ 7.50
NOTE: For best results, do not touch the dot with your fingers. The oil in your hands and fingers keeps the dot from sticking like it should. Tear a dot off, place it on your main balloon where you want the attached piece and then place your attachment.
