Thank you for sharing the 1 balloon frog. Much better than the one I have been using.

this was awsome, but i think that a puppy balloon instruction would be really cool.

ahhh!
maybe i should start with something easier... but what so you mean by "twist it around itself"? im not sure what youre acctually twistin around what... in fact, how do you tie the tie to the second twist?
and while im asking stupid questions, how do you make small flower petal twists? i cant seem to make any without popping the baloon or having a giant one.
but then again, the balloons im using probably arent the best quality...

I always thought balloon animals were annoying, mostly because I have kids and whenever they see them they are selling for a ridiculous price by some grumpy Carnie on the boardwalk.

The ones I've seen are hardly cuddly enough to warrant the expense and on some occasions seemed to be premade in a bucket.

Recently though, my 4 y.o. picked out a balloon kit from the book store and after a few months we finally got around to scavenging what was left to actually create an animal.

The book was not helpful at all, and the balloons seemed to pop easily. I headed for the internet and managed to make a dog after seeing one in a photo with an uninflated tail. That extra space in the end allowed for easier twists for a beginner.

Eventually I got the hang of it and created a swan from a crude drawing I found online and now my own version of a fish and giraffe.

I'm pretty confident I can made just about anything by the third try. I just discovered your site but find it very informative. The time you put into it is very much appreciated. I now see twisting as an art form and not just a party gag. To think people create thousands of different animals all using the same simple balloon is amazing; and there lies the talent.

People might laugh or give you a hard time, but doing something that 's fun and entertaining for all ages is a treasure for us all and a well deserved break from our stressful lives.

Having the ability to pull out a 5 cent balloon and twist up smiles on peoples faces is nothing less than magic. Anyone who doubts has never seen the face of a child who adores their new creation as if it were gold and wouldn't part with it for the world!

Keep up the good work!

I have a balloon ministry and have learned basics from books...I am grateful for all the new things I am learning. I operate on a small budget because my balloons are not sold...
Thanks again

You need to have more close ups and move slower. You are not a good instructor

mike, thanks to you, in jjust one year i went from a kid who could make a dog, and giraffe, and a sword to a 14-year-old making $150 an hour at birthday parties making stuff like wiley coyote chasing after roadrunner while running across the desert. your instructions taught me all the basics and i now make my own designs based upon what i have found on your website. thank you so much for all your instructional videos! they are very easy to understand and are absolutely brilliant!
