PIG

This pig is great. The tulip twist creates an effective but simple nose. The chubby legs are perfect for a porky pig.

RABBIT

In my opinion this is one of the best designs in the collection. If a nice fluffy tail is added to the rear you can make this one free standing. The contrast of the 160 ears to the 350 legs I think gives it a nice shape. Very popular when this is made and a real crowd pleaser.

Adding a simple balloon weave to make a basket full of real chocolate eggs makes a useful delivery piece or gift.

TEDDY

A standard teddy bear head placed upon the thunder thighs base. Very quick and simple. This is a popular choice at gigs.

BABY T-REX

This is a very good design and one of my favourites. The use of a white round for the mouth plus the extra artwork is really effective for the teeth. With the additional tail this model can be free standing.

TIGER

The face of this tiger is beautiful. A really tight design gives the nose a good shape and the character has a cute cartoon feel to it. Absolutely one of the best face designs in this collection.

TURTLE

The shell design of this turtle is nice which gives the overall model a nice curved shape as if the turtle is struggling to carry its home on its back. I am not too sure about the overall head design. Not sure it captures the overall look and feel of a turtle. Saying that, it is still a quality design and highly recommended.

RHINO

The last model of the collection is the rhino. A really good design for the head with the 'horn' holding both the mouth and the snout together. Care must be taken to size the bubbles correctly and to really stretch a 260Q otherwise you will not be able to make the head out of just one balloon.

SUMMARY

An improvement from Sitters Vol 1 (see balloon review 019). This collection has some very nice designs especially the tiger and the rabbit. As with Bonnie's other PDF publications, these are easy to follow, include accurate measurements and plenty of photos.

A very well produced set of PDFS that are easy to follow and include plenty of photos. The concept of the thunder thighs can be applied to many other characters and this is the real learning point. Well worth $25.
