How to Use Inflatable Animals at Your Next Event

Whether they are extinct, endangered, mythical, or living IDG can bring any animal to life with inflatable animals!  Use your inflatable animal for educational, entertainment, promotional purposes, or more at any event throughout the year!

Teach About Animals with Educational Inflatables

Work with IDG to bring extinct, endangered, or living animals to life in the form of giant interactive inflatables that can be used for educational displays!

Recently, IDG worked with a Canadian charity, Elephant Thoughts, to create a traveling educational program that aimed to teach children about endangered species.  This program was called Zoo Guts and consisted of 5 inflatable animals: a polar bear, salmon, duck, snail, and turtle.

These inflatable animals were equipped with removable inflatable organs and a digitally printed photo of the animal’s skeleton.  Participants were able to enter inside the endangered animals where they could assemble their organs and view the animal’s skeletal system.  This provided a fun, immersive, and memorable educational experience.

IDG has also created inflatable whale replicas that, like the Zoo Guts exhibit, allow participants to enter inside the giant marine animal and learn about its inner workings.  These educational inflatable animals   We have also created educational inflatable animals that were used for presentations such as an inflatable replica of the now-extinct sunfish and a megalodon jaw.

Dress Up Your Stage with Inflatable Animals

Another popular use for custom inflatable animals is using them as stage props or stage sets.  IDG’s talented team has worked with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry to create inflatable animals that made appearances during ballets, concert tours, and even music festivals.

From an 18’H inflatable caterpillar used during a ballet to a mythical inflatable dragon that breathes smoke used as the center of a music festival, IDG has done it all.  Custom inflatables and inflatable animals make the perfect stage props as they are easy to set up and takedown.  When deflated, they pack up into surprisingly small packages and are lighter than traditional materials used for stages which makes it easier and cheaper to transport them to different cities for your concert tour.
