The Rotterdam police surprised the children in the Sophia Children's Hospital on Sunday by dropping off dozens of balloons shaped like Spongebob, Piglet and Nintje, among others. 

The police seized the balloons from a man who was selling them illegally. In consultation with the Public Prosecutor, the police decided to repurpose the balloons to put a smile on the faces of kids admitted to the Sophia Children's Hospital.

What should have been a climax has instead resulted in reputational damage for the balloons sector, according to Pim Santhuizen of the Ballonnerie in Amsterdam, which was the supplier of the 150,000 balloons that were planned to be released at the end of the Koningsvaart on April 30.
