Animal Balloons at Zazzle

Animal Balloons reversible pillow at Zazzle

We’ve finally had a taste of Summer and my Animal Balloons are looking cute and colourful in my Zazzle store. I always enjoy making reversible pillows – double the fun!


My old balloons design was very popular for kids and nurseries so there’s plenty options for that with posters, lunchboxes and party supplies. Most products can be chosen with a repeat pattern or a single cloud.

You can see the full range in my Zazzle store plus there’s 15% off everything this week with the code ZAZZLEGIFT15.
