You then need another 6 finger bubble for the front of the bear and
then a second 6 finger bubble for the back of the bear.

If things have worked out well you should have a 1/2 finger bubble to wrap
around the bottom pinch twist. Sometimes you may need to deflate and discard
the last section of the balloon, especially if using three 350's to make the design.

By having two bubbles at the back this pushes the bears arms/legs forward
as if he wants to hug you.

Thelma suggested the above to me many moons ago when I used to just discard
the extra balloon when I used to make the bear from a 260...........thanks Thelma x.

Push the pinch twist and end bubble up into the centre of the teddy to make him a little rounder.

Make a 2/3 finger nose bubble, the size is what is most pleasing to your eye.

Attach this to the nose of the teddy.

Inflate a white 260 to 4 fingers in length.

Split this bubble into two and then I make into pinch twists.
You may prefer to not have as pinch twist, whatever pleases your eye is good.

Attach the eyes around the nose/mouth section.

Add the artwork and you are good to go.

I made this at an event this week for adults and have to say I was very surprised with the reaction it got.
It seemed way over the top but it seems the teddy bear definitely had the ahhhh/wow factor for them.

Hope it works for you as well.

I finally gave your bear a try, but used pinch twists on the front and back of the neck (it worked okay for the 350 bear, but not so good on the 260 bear).
I need to make the legs a little smaller to make it more in proportion. I really like this little bear. The small brown one is a single 260 and scraps. The big one is two 350s, a scrap for the nose and a 5" round for the eyes. I did the face just a little different too. I made the back of the bear, brought the 350 up for the belly, then made a 2" or so bubble and tied the nose onto it then put it into place on the muzzle. Just something a little different.

You are very welcome Graham, I understand :-) It's frustrating I'm sure. Wish we could get more people on here like we used to have. That was so much fun.
