After the show, a distribution of simple balloon sculptures is organized for all the children who couldn\'t get one during the show. All those who want a balloon and wait in line get the chance to go home with a little keepsake.

The backstage decoration can greatly vary... Here a castle made entirely with balloons (about 3000 of them) ! This prop is particularly addapted to the story of the Princess and the Knight... All right, all right... He used to be a Frog... but now, he is a Knight!

Puppets made with balloons

The dimensions and configuration of this backstage decoration, a castle made with about 3000 balloons, is particularly well suited for a puppet show... to the great pleasure of the children who get completely involved in the story (hmm... \"carried away\" might better describe it sometimes...) by talking (shouting?) back and forth with the balloon characters.

A very popular moment of the show is the game \"Who Wants to get Balloons with Air ?\". It\'s very simple, Môssieur Ballon twists a balloon figure and gives it to the first child who can guess what it is before it is completely finished.
