The world's smallest balloon animals aren't even made from balloons! You'll want Animinimals in your pocket when you do your next in-person or virtual gig.

Imagine this: With absolutely ZERO balloon twisting experience, you can transform a pencil balloon into a heart-meltingly adorable miniature balloon animal that kids and adults will adore.

It might look like you spent years practicing balloon art, but it’s actually all done without inflating or twisting a balloon. The basic sleight of hand required can be learned in minutes.

Seriously, this effect is too fun to be described in words. Watch the demo video before going any further. Animinimals are the ultimate children’s show giveaway. Although, they’re so dang cute, you might just want to keep them for yourself!

Customer reviews for Animinimals







Such a fun product! If you work with kids at all, this is a must! Fun and easy to do!





Not just for little kids because big kids like being reminded they were once (and still are) kids. This is my number one feel happy make happy routine. I'm riding the train at 5am and this rough looking dude on his way to work early says "I like your vest." And I say," I keep all my magic stuff in it! Do you want to see something?" And I run through a quick Ninja rings routine and his eyes got real big and he laughed and then I said, "Do you want to feel like a kid again?" I tied up an uninflated balloon and created an Animinimal. He almost cried. Don't overthink using these. You can do about anything, flash all over the place and it won't matter. When they get a tiny little balloon animal in the end they WILL smile. I told him to feel free to keep it and give it to someone you love, a child, a sibling, whatever. His reaction made my day. This is NOT the only time I've had an Animinimal give someone joy. These are simple things that cause a lot of happiness. Second story: my first walk around as a volunteer at a fund raiser for a local high school's girls athletics fund. Real balloon guy was awesome but had to go and put up a sign saying, "No more balloons after this point." Lots of kids with hang dog expressions not getting cool balloon animals. I walk up and say, "Did you want a balloon?" Sad nods. "Well, I can do balloons!" And they end up with something WAY cooler than some real balloon animal. These are awesome.



Superb effect for magicians wanting something in there repertoire that’s good for any kids in a mixed age audience. If your not a professional kids entertainer then it’s not always easy choosing material that caters to all ages and this fits perfectly. Simple reason is balloon Modeling is the number one thing asked for when it comes to entertaining kids, now you have an instant and fast solution to the question “can you make balloon animals?” This requires minimal skill and frankly I think the giveaway will last far longer than a balloon animal anyway. It reminds me of the pearl string animals that was popularised by Robert Neale but with a faster more visual creation. Watching the explanation video prior to receiving the trick was nice as it confirmed how good this is! I love the variations in the explanation of the various productions but for me the change bag idea was utterly genius as you can create dozens of animals in seconds to keep all the kids happy! I’ve been asked to do a street party for jubilee and almost the first thing asked was “can you make balloon animals for the kids?” I think I went into a total meltdown then I remembered this and boom the answer was “oh I can make better than that, I can make miniature balloon animals in the kids own hands!” This along with lolli hero, Pizza Paddel and wonder pop I think are top notch family tricks so yeah five star highly recommended stuff …… five stars!…… now get those bulk minimals in stock please! I need more!








The trick that gets me rebooked

This trick is perfect. Everyone seems to think all magicians can do balloon animals. So whe I take the balloons out of my suitcase everyone assumes something allready. And this makes the trick work so good. Because you are going to make there assumption come true - but in a very unique and magical way. And as a bonus you have an amzing give-away, which everybody loves and remembers you by.

This trick got me rebooked very often and leaves the kids and also grownups in amazment and with a reminder what magic can do.






Private post for Peter Harker

Wonderfully fun trick to perform. Have been surprised at how adults also get fooled by this. Definitely with buying the extra pack so you have plenty to give away.



This does exactly what it's advertised to do. I got this as a gift, and I quickly downloaded the instructions. It's an easy trick to do, really, but the payoff with kids is big. It's adaptable not only to change bags (as in the vid) but silks, mirror glasses, all kinds of other presto-chango things. Well done! Excellent construction, but it would've been nice to not have 'China' on each animal, but that's very minor.





And I can only do a wiener dog balloon-- but now ALL KINDS OF ANIMINIMALS!



This is going to be fun!



A great give away for kids. Nothing earth shattering here but for what it is it's a great value.



Great! I purchased this with the additional 100 pack so I could hand them out for the kids who wanted to. keep it. The additional video is good quality and the explanations are great. I learned how to make the full size balloon version of all the mini versions included so I could make them shrink and grow.

I love the Animinimals! Funny enough, most of the people I produce one of the little balloon animals for, they do not experience it as a magic trick. First they think I did them for real, especially children. But they all love them and they make perfect souvenirs! I always carry a balloon and some of the Animinimals with me.





Love these. Actually using in virtual kids shows!



What you see is what you get. It obviously will gets kids attention but I find adults are caught off guard as well. One person pulled me aside and wanted to know 'what kind of mechanics were used". They weren't talking about sleights they thought the balloon someone how shaped itself into the animal by clicking a button. So as you can imagine they were super blown away when I gave them the animinimal to inspect.



This is a great trick to do on kids - I particularly like using a magic bag for the effect of turning a bunch of unknotted balloons into a bunch of balloon animals. Older kids will realize that the final product is not balloon-like at all, so you might have to have a line prepared to explain it (e.g. "Oh yes of course, I used magic to harden the balloon so it will last longer"). Get the extra bag of 100 Animinimals if you actually plan on using this on an audience.


Hans Peter

It is an excellent trick for children as well as adults. I have used it several times where "I walk around" and it brings joy all the time.
Good explanation included and most suitable for all occasions .I recommend this crazy little thing



I absolutely love for this kind of silliness! Your animinimals are so cute. We are having so much fun with your explanations / demonstration s. Looking forward to ordering more.



Love the animals!





Good fun, comes with a video, which is showing demos, and tutotials,
severall methods are shown on how too,
All off these methods are easy to do,
animinimals are great for give aways too.



This is great!! Very visual and easy to do.
Yes, it comes with a very short explanation video, but to be honest, you do not need anything else, it is straight forward and very easy to perform.
If you want to learn how to inflate the ballons or how to make a balloon animal you can find a lot and I mean a LOT of videos on youtube with great detail.
So to sum up, if you have seen the trailer and love the idea of giving away this tiny animinimals, buy it.



Great as a stand-alone trick, or if you do some balloon modelling a neat way to segue from balloon modelling into your magic set or vice versa (magic set to balloon modelling). Also would make great give away gifts to kids at a kids party/event.





These are great, awesome little trick. However I would like to warn, one of the routines in the video suggests pulling on the tail of one of the animinimals instead of the balloon. I would not recommend this, when I tried it the tail snapped off.



I think these are brilliant, I think there a cool giveaway and really hope the bag of 100 come back in stock. The explanation video is short and unless your really new to magic you probably could just buy the bag of 100 and create your own tricks with them.



Video is less than 8 Minutes and shows the basic handling and some variations
B U T ...
I would have liked it if there where at lest the basics on how to make those balloon animals.
I really assumed there would at least shown how to make a dog balloon animal.

  • Jay asks: I can't tell from the photos, but it looks like these could be serious choking hazards. Has anyone tested these with a choke tube? Keep these age-specific guidelines in mind: Toys should be large enough — at least 1¼ inches (3 centimeters) in diameter and 2¼ inches (6 centimeters) in length — so that they can't be swallowed or lodged in the windpipe. A small-parts tester, or choke tube, can determine if a toy is too small.

    • 1. Jay answers: Product clearly says - HEALTH AND SAFETY: CHOKING HAZARD SMALL PARTS Not for children under 3 years. TRY READING THE FULL PRODUCT DESRIPTION NEXT TIME! duh
    • 2. David Matkin answers: Swallowing is fine - don't get them stuck in your wind pipe and choke on them.
    • 3. Ehrin answers: Calm down
    • 4. Marc answers: So don't swallow them.
