Inflate a sempertex 260 modeling balloon to leave a 5 finger un-inflated length of balloon at the tail end.
Twist a 3 finger bubble for the nose and a 2 finger bubble for the back of the head.

Now comes the complicated task of trying to do all the twists & hold the balloon at the same time. Be patient and take your time as it’s a bit like when you first start to drive, chaotic & then things settle down so;

If you hold the twist between the nose & back of head between your thumb & forfinger with the nose looking down towards the grown, then the other 3 fingers of this hand are free to help you twist the rest of the head.
Start with twisting a 3 finger bubble for the side of the head, a 2 finger bubble for an ear, a 2.5 finger bubble for the top of the head, a 2 finger bubble for the other ear and lastly a 3 finger bubble for the other side of the fhead.

As long as you hold the first & last bubbles all the time then the other bubbles/twists will stay in place, but be sure to always twist the balloon in the same direction as this is very important.

Now twist the 2nd & 7th bubbles together to form the head shape and push the nose through the centre of the head so that it sits centrally in between the middle.

Push the nose through the centre of the head so that it sits centrally in between the middle.

You now have to pinch twist the ears in place so gently push one side of the head towards the top of the head bubble, pull the ear bubble gently away and twist approx 4/7 turns so making the ear tight so that the pressure of the balloon helps it to stay in place.
Repeat for the other ear.
There are some further ear/pinch twist instructions here;

The arms & legs are just four 4 finger bubbles twisted into the bottom of the head.

The front of the body should be approx a 5 finger bubble that is twisted around & underneath bubbles two & three of the arms & legs.

The back of the body is a 5 finger bubble that will be twisted to the underneath of the head. Deflate & tie off the balloon.

You can make the bear slightly bigger by increasing all the bubble sizes & use all the 260 modelling balloon but we like to think that a smaller bear has a certain cuteness to it, sometimes we amaze ourself as to how sad we are :D

Just realised how nice a teddy a single 360 can become.

I made the stomach bubble slightly smaller than the back bubble so that - there is more room for the bow. It stands very stable

This beats all the YouTube tutorials of teddy bears. I always felt the arms never looked right on them but this ones looks a treat.
