Upon planning our launch of the Poketo x Disney Winnie The Pooh The Hundred Acre Wood collection, we knew we wanted fun, dreaminess, and beauty to be the vibe… those beautiful images you saw last week, one character clearly stands out… the red balloon. And if you’re a Pooh fan, you know how iconic the red balloon is to Winnie The Pooh stories. For this collection, we enlisted none other than balloon trooper and artist, Jihan Zencirli.. the vision, the soul, the owner of the Geronimo! Balloons here in Los Angeles. We wanted Jihan to create a balloon that captured the spirit of Pooh, the vibe of Poketo, and of course, the obvious mark of Geronimo! No one does this like Jihan… no one with the creativity, the heart, and the kindness that she fills with each and every one of her balloon creations.
The Geronimo! studio is right here in the Arts District of Downtown LA, a stones throw away from the Poketo Store. So we popped over there for a studio visit. Jihan and her crew of Balloon Troopers are hard at work making magic, making people happy. What a dream job. Enjoy.
