A History of Excellence

Jim and Steve Historic Snowman

“We keep moving forward, […] because we’re curious
and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”

Walt Disney

Jim Thomson, the founder of Dynamic Displays, has been recognized by the Inflatable Advertising Dealers Association as the father of the cold air inflatable, and was inducted into their industry Hall of Fame in 2000.

In 1962, he purchased several heavy “Good Year” rubber parade balloons. After experiencing numerous problems of leaking and cracked paint, he inserted a constant running fan in these units to solve the problems, and in 1964 an industry was born.

Dynamic Displays’ tradition of creativity is still alive today under the direction of Jim’s youngest son, Stephen Thomson.

A Future of Promise

“If you can think it, we can build it.”

We take delight in turning out some of the most innovative and beautiful inflatable products on the market.

Some of our more noteworthy projects include our incredibly accurate Helium Giant character replicas (check out our Licensed Character Photo Gallery), and Whale World—a giant educational exhibit featuring marine learning stations, seven different inflatable whale replicas, and an awesome, 80′ walk-through Blue Whale. Those walking through can view the internal workings of the whale, including a beating heart, working lungs, and a growing fetus.

What we love most is the chance to make your wildest dream a reality—bring on the challenge.
