I'd ask my daughter. There's no way she'd speak to a complete stranger straight off the bat, but she'd definitely want it.
I can't understand why this is even a question... I seriously can't, I'm not trying to be facetious.
He asked me fine. If asked kids they would have ask me before accepting as stranger danger thing.
I would have no issues accepting have given away heaps of stuff to random strangers before.
My DS is 4 months so I would thank him but politely decline because balloons aren't suitable for his age.
If an older child I think I would ask the kid and then answer dependant on what the kid wanted. Pretty sure they'd say yes so I would thank the man for his thoughtful gift and encourage the child to thank him too.
I would say thank you and take the balloon.
Didn't occur to me there were many other options TBH
