    I am just so amazed at how children respond to a big balloon.
    Whenever the kids are stuck inside due to bad weather or sickness or at a birthday party, you can just throw in a balloon or two, and they'll figure out how to make a game out of it.
    The best thing is - nothing really gets broken and (usually) no one gets hurt.

    A balloon is a cheap item and with a little oversight, causes no problems.

    Even an older person who doesn't respond much to kids' toys will join a child in a balloon game.
    The balloon moves slowly enough and doesn't require so much physical interaction for an older person, but the child will be very active with the balloon, often making up rules for himself or his group as he plays.

    When the balloon pops,it surprises everyone and, usually, that's the end of the game.

    You made some good points.  Why not write a hub about it?  Do a little research to add to what you have and I think it would make an interesting article.
