The Heart Balloons are a High-End glider in Mario Kart Tour. They were introduced in the Valentine's Tour and became the signature glider of Monty Mole and Pauline (Party Time) in the Flower Tour and New Year's 2021 Tour respectively. The glider is a set of multi-colored heart-shaped balloons. Hitting racers with Red Shells grants more points when using this glider. There is a silver and gold variant of this glider, simply named the Silver-and-Gold Hearts, which are also classified as a High-End glider.


The Heart Balloons are currently available in tour pipes, but they are not part of the Daily Selects set.
