Balloon Dolphin Hat

Here is a pretty simple, very larger balloon dolphin hat I figured out. It is easy to make and comes alive with a couple eyeball balloons. As balloon artist, you can make it quickly for line work. But it very large and can get in the way, so I wouldn't do this in a cramp restaurant.

Great, a new video!! Still love the humor. I'm not so crazy about hats in general but I'm glad you started the video thing again.
Congratulations with the wedding!

Cool hat! The one problem that I had was that, while the video quality was really good in the beginning, I couldn't understand what you were saying towards the end. I still think that it's an improvement over the utube ones though.

I love the adjustable hat base. That's a new style for me.

A trick I use with the eyeball balloons. Blow them up two at a time like you did in the video, then grab both nozzles and tie them as one. Saves a bit of time.

I suppose it would work when you blow up 2 260's - but I can't even blow up one.

Watched for several minutes - it was painful. The video jerked the whole time - couldn't understand a word you said. Why did you do the video in your bedroom, anyway? Kind of unprofessional. Choose the living room next time. Anyway, couldn't make head or tail of it.

I don't think you go to fast, but could pause after a couple steps so I could check if I got it right. Other than that I think your videos are awsome!!!

Love your humor............your a little nuts, but I love it. Great hat,
Really like the eyes. Your idea for the base hat is great. As others said, the quality and size of the vid is much better. Keep up the great work.

That was so far the best video I have seen you make. Hilarious. People start using your pause buttons so the man doesn't run out of batteries. Duhh.

great stuff. With the basic hat (first part of the hat, it's possible to make other hats. i liked it. you don't need to stop or wait we can rewind the video.
about the talking: the balloons make much noise so we can't understand it so good while twisting but i don't mind
keep on going

mike you have some crazy comments and request. I love your sarcasm, its charming. I am throwing a birthday beach themed party and as a gag, I made your dolphin hat which is much better than those coned bday hats. It was perfect and thanks for the website. This is my first time making balloon animals, and your instructions were clear and visually I could understand all your steps.

Great video! I am totally new at this and you made it easy enough for me to make the hat.

For those who can't enjoy the video because it loads too slow or is jumpy just let the video completely load and then watch. I live out in the country where we have really slow internet speeds so I have to do this with all videos.

Thanks so much!
