You ROCK! This is exactly what i was looking for... a cool simple thing! I just hope I have the lung capacity and the facial muscles to blow it up. Lips and lungs, don't fail me now!

Thanks! I use a pump and it works. Just make sure that the balloon is not twisted when you wrap it around your finders and you can do it by putting the pump bewteen your knees and pump.

Thanks! Jojo

For the pumppers. The first time you inflate the balloon; use the pump, after that you can, more easily "blow" up the balloon.

Love your site. For future videos, it would be great if you zoomed in a little tighter. If the shot were from your waist up to the top of your head, it would be much easier to see what you're doing.

Thank you for a great website. I was more than happy to donate to this website because you were very good at giving directions. This is a great site. I've been a clown for a long time in a smaller town and this has really been fun for me. Again, thank you and keep up the good work. Thanks, Cecelia

Ok here's a tip for those of us stuck using the pump. First use your pump to blow up the balloon all the way. (I usaually end up doing that twice. Don't understand why I can't mouth inflate. I definately have the lung capicity. I used to sing.)If you want the curly Q or even the spiral shape and still can't do it by wrapping the balloon around your fingers, try using your wrist. It works much better for me but then again I have dainty wrists and my fingers are too small.

Here's a tip to those trying to mouth inflate. You have to really tighten your lips and face muscles. The tighter you purse your lips the easier it will be. It's called embouchure. If you've ever played a wind instrument you'll know what I'm talking about. Look up embouchure online, or look at videos of trumpet players. It also helps sometime if you use your hand to hold your cheeks and lips in, the air can't back blow into your mouth, and the balloon will inflate. Good luck!!!!

Thanks for your good instructions, and I love your dog. I'm going to entertain at a 4 yr old girly birthday party and I think these curly q's and the flower bracelts will be the thing.

Thanks from Oslo, Norway
