Did you know we have a balloon that inflates to five feet in diameter and lights up with 2000 watts?

Inside the inflated white ball are two 1,000 watt halogen bulbs, which can only be lit once fully inflated (for your safety). China balls have nothing on this huge, softly lit globe.

MYT Works is a little company from New York and their motto is “Born out of frustration.” Frustration with how poorly products like this have worked in the past. Frustration with how “home made” so much of it … Continue reading
