Lovely Images of Children and Balloons

Why are balloons so enchanting? Well, they are associated with happy children who see the balloon as more than the material and air they are made of. This whole picture is enchanting, not just the standalone, or more so float-alone, balloon! Here are some balloon and children images, from different periods!

The Baby Songbook, 1914

Well whaddaya know! Sigmund Freud’s niece illustrated this! Tom Seidmann-Freud, otherwise known as Martha Freud, illustrated and wrote The Baby Songbook when she was just twenty-two! She’s often grouped into the German Art Nouveau movement.

The Little Red Balloon, 1918

This rare children’s book is one of many you find sitting on vintage or antique store shelves, beside all the boxes of old postcards and magazines, with a ‘From the Library of’ stamped inside the front cover.

Goodnight Moon, 1947

“Goodnight room. Goodnight moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light, and the red balloon…” How many of you brought balloons home and let them stay with you in your room till they deflated, of natural causes?

Harold and the Purple Crayon, 1955

What’s even more enchanting than a child with a balloon is a child with a balloon, with crayons! This 4-year-old wields his magical purple crayon and embarks on an adventure full of unexplored pathways, a shining moon, and this hot-air balloon!

The Red Balloon, 1956

This short, French film, that contains hardly any dialogue is renowned. It’s just as popular today, as it was in the year of its release when it gained the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Why’s this? It’s the honesty (director Albert Lamorisse cast his own son as the main character), the innocence (the convincing personification of the balloon) and, of course, the lovely Parisian neighborhood the film is shot in.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, 1990

Dr. Seuss books are simple to read, with its easy-to-remember rhymes, yet deals with life’s challenges and more complex themes. Though, owing to function, hardly anybody travels via balloon, it’s often the most daydreamed-about method!

Girl With Balloon, 2004

English Graffiti artist, Banksy, created this image (one of his most well known) that has since been replicated thousands of times, in magazines, on walls, stickers, notebook covers, desktop wallpapers, you name it! The hardness of the spray paint and concrete walls are met with the softness of the little girl with an outstretched hand, reaching for her heart-shaped balloon.

Up, 2009

Naturally, both films featured in this list are Oscar winners! The Disney/Pixar film won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. And, what do they have in common? A simple, yet beautiful, storyline, and balloons!

We’d love if you could add to this list!
