Special shaped balloons have a long tradition and Kubicek introduced the 1st special shapes already in the early 90's. Since then a countless number of bottles, cans, ships, animals and other amazing forms rose to the skies with a Kubucek logo on them. If one was to decide which shapes are the most popular ones, we bet it would be the animal-shaped balloons. Forklifts and space probes are fun but the animals are both cute and catchy, simply beautiful... Who would not love to fly a lovely bear, lobster or an owl? In the end of February 2016 another flying bird was built - BB26Z based special shape "The Owl". The customers John & Sally Ware, USA came with their own design ideas which were combined with our construction experience. Partial usage of the Kubicek Polyester ligth keeps the balloon as light as possible while preserving all the advantages of the standard fabric. Join us and experience the 1st test flight of the Owl.
