The confetti just pools in the bottom of what looks a blown up condom! What a waste of time and money! AIBU or is there a trick I'm missing?

The ones I’ve had have been fine, I just shake them for a little while and the confetti sticks to the inside.

I've not had one so this may be a load of rubbish, I think I read it somewhere and stored it in my brain with all of the other useless crap that pushes the important stuff out of the way to make room Hmm

If you rub the sides (maybe needs to be on carpet?) Then shake it, will the confetti stick to the sides with static created from the rubbing?

You need to use a mixture of helium and oxygen to get it to stick to the sides.

No you don’t

Rub them off your jumper or your hair, you need to build up static electricity in there to get the confetti to stick! They're a pain in the ass when they pop the confetti goes EVERYWHERE!! I was hoovering the stuff up for weeks

I used to have to blow these up at work. If u rub the sides sometimes it sticks. To be honest. Most of the time they didn’t. They were a pain in the arse to blow up and stupidly expensive. I would never buy them.
