The Background of the BalloonStix Birth, World First


Q. Who developed the world's first BalloonsStix?

A. In the 1994 Korean Professional Baseball Series, LG Twins used BalloonStix for the first time in the world.


Some said that it was first used by the Hanwha Eagles professional baseball team in 1992, but the balloon was not a cheering stick but a long size balloon in 130cm long and 10cm wide made for children's toys that were already popular in Japan and other countries.

It was difficult to use because the balloon was folded in half and encountered each other, so the sound was not that loud, and the balloon exploded easily. You can't call it a cheering stick.



BalloonStix used in the October 1994 professional baseball Korean Series are the first, 65cm long and the two short stick balloons, that we know today.

In September 1994, In-yang Kim, then marketing manager of LG Twins Professional Baseball Team and Cheol-ho Kim(CEO of BalloonStix Korea Co., Ltd.) beat each other by cutting the length of the existing 130cm bar to half. It also solved the problem of folding and popping with the effect of much louder sound than clapping.


In October 1994, the cheering stick used in the professional baseball Korean Series became the first 65 centimeters long and the two sticks we know today.


In October of that year, LG Twins became the Korean Series champion.
