awww, I like the 3rd one best, it looks like it's smiling. Is that just using one 350 or two?

I have worked out how they can be made with two 350's but you do have to be pretty
careful with the exact amount of air going into the balloon. I made a few at a gig yesterday
and the comment and feedback was very positive so I think the new look it a definite hit.

This is the bear made from one grey 260.

In the complimentary packs this week are four 350's and one white and black.
The packs are sent out as a little thank you to all our customers and if they
post the teddy here go into the draw to win a balloon modelling DVD.

Everyone is more than welcome to join in and post and please use the design.
I hope it has the reactions for you that I have been getting with it.

Here we go then with this month's design, the 250 teddy.

I have made this with two 350's but for the first couple of goes it may be easier to just use three 350's.

Inflate the 350 leaving 6 fingers un-inflated, make two 2.5 finger bubbles and pinch twist these.
Then make a 3 finger bubble for the lower mouth section.

Pinch twist the 3 finger bubble for the lower mouth section.

You then need two 2 finger bubble as a spacer so the nose later will come up
and through the centre of the head section.

The head is a 4 finger bubble, a 2.5 finger bubble, a 4 finger bubble, a 2.5 finger bubble
and then the last 4 finger bubble for the other side of the face.

Twist the remaining part of the 350 around the second of the 2 finger spacer bubbles.

Push the nose and mouth through the centre of the face and then twist in both ears for the teddy.

Inflate the second 350 and leave between a 4/5 finger bubble un-inflated.

Tie the knot tightly into the lower centre section of the face.

A top tip here, the nozzle from the first 350 I pull down under the mouth and tie tightly around
the lower centre section of the face, this pulls the nose and mouth down from the top of the head.

Make two 4 finger bubbles for the teddy and then a 2 finger pinch twist.

Then make another two 4 finger bubbles and twist around the neck section securely.

You then need a 6 finger bubble for the back of the bear, twist this into the 2 finger pinch twist.
