In 1976, Ray Kroc, Founder of McDonald's®, shook the hand of Jules Pollack, the Founder of Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc., congratulating him on his great idea of developing a Balloon Inflating Character™ in the likeness of the Registered Trademark figure, Ronald McDonald®. Mr. Kroc said it reminded him of the days when he was selling multi-mixers. 

Ronald McDonald® as a Balloon Inflating Character™, is an attractive promotional vehicle that inflates, seals, and strings logo imprinted advertising balloons in 6-seconds. The sculpted vinyl head and 2-pc. vinyl costume was designed by Suzy Goodman-Pollack.

Jules Pollack introduced the concept of a Balloon-A-Thon® to McDonald's®, and the company staged a nationwide 'Balloons For Muscular Dystrophy' fundraiser for Jerry Lewis and the Kids that raised $1,000,000 for the Labor Day Telethon in 1977.  

Balloon-A-Thon® is a Registered Trademark of Creative Balloons Mfg. Inc. and is available for non-profit organizations and companies through a Licensing Arrangement. Contact Creative Balloons Mfg.
