Throughout its 90-plus year history, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has housed over 200 individual giant balloons, novelty balloons, balloonicles, cold-air inflatables, and more. With the longevity of the Parade's history, the majority of the balloons used before the 2000s have been disposed of due to deterioration and overall wear and tear of the balloon.

Listed bellow is a presumably complete and comprehensive list of balloons and balloon spin-offs that still exist, sorted into their most recent location of storage.
