what is the benefit of the two small bubbles after the small nose over just one long segment for the nose?

I feel it helps position the nose better, and keeps it from coming undone.

omg...i was trying 2 make a teddy bear and u went so fast!!! u can make 3 bubbles in like, 2 seconds!!! wen i can only do it in like 10 seconds!!! so id suggest slowing down!!! after every step u should wait about 5-10 seconds, and 4 the harder steps wait longer...

I'll try to take it slower in future videos.

But feel free to use the pause button.

Hi & thank you very much for your site... helped a lot when I had to learn to twist balloons today within two hours ;)

Just didn't expect the children (4-6 years) to start blowing and creating their own animals/flowers/hats (with some help) - very interesting and amazing interaction, just a little balloon-consuming ;)

Thank you so much. Your instructions are very easy to follow. Now I have something else to make beside a stick.

how in the world do you make the ears without the balloon popping? I just went through 20 balloons, popping every single one of them!

What kind of balloons are you using?

I find the the balloons that come in most kits are old and break easier.

You might want to "soften" the balloon by letting out a little aire before you tie the knot and squeezing it before twisting each segment.

This will spread out more of the air and make the balloon less likely to pop.

I'm having trouble getting any bubbles/twists to stay without unraveling. I dunno if its the maybe the balloons I have or what (got em in a cheap 3 dollar kit with a pump at meijer- doesnt say what size they are or anything)

Any suggestions to get these things to stay?

Awesome, bear turned out great. He just has a few abnormal growth tumors (from unequal sizing of the bubbles), but with a little chemotherapy, I think he'll be alright. Your site is great. Thanks!

Hey...give this guy a break people. He is cool enough to teach u for free. So sometimes he goes quickly....BooooHoooo. Use the pause button. If anything I find the youtube service the worst part. it loads so slow. I don't really understand why u cant keep up. heh heh. I want to say thank you for all the help. I teach primary school in China and the balloons help to teach new vocabulary and hand eye coordination. All of my students love it even the older primary 6 students.
Thanx bro. dont let the haters get u down.......ur dog is cool too!!!Jason J. S.
