    Would there be danger involved in heating air inside a balloon, to say 200C or more, and then inhaling the expanded contents? I'm referring only to harmful substances leaking from the rubber/whatever else party balloons are made of.

    Perheps a better phrasing would be: Will harmful substances leak from a balloon when heated, assuming it doesn't melt first, and what are said harmful substances, and even better what are their effects on the human body if inhaled?

    LOL, why can I see what you are planning to do allready :P
    If you want to inhale the hot air from the balloon , for whatever reason, I'd suggest cooling it before it enters the balloon. If the air were to have an actual 200C before entering, I think your balloon would melt.

    Try having your hot air run by a small cooling tube before entering the balloon.
    a small piece of tubing with a cold gelpack around it would do.

    yes well
    I'd recommend cooling the air to something more like 50*C before inhaling it. At 200*C you're gonna get your lungs burnt
