Dave,
     No one posted here so I am going to post.  It is cute, but... not as cute as your dragon fly or snail.  It may be the colouring, or maybe that it is only one balloon.   Personally, I would love to see one more animated like your other characters.  Sorry, if you don't like this post, but I think you would prefer me to be honest. 
     It would be good in a pinch, but try do your best to "cute it up" like your other critters.  My mum (Yes, seriously, I do show her some posts when they are funny or cute... and no she does not really beat me) really loved your dragon fly and your Snail that you posted here.

Ok...sorry but I didn't understand that link.

I've got the concept of the "inside hook twist" but how do you make it long and curvey before you tie it? (perhaps it was in the instructions, but since I don't understand the language...)

Ok, and I'm also assuming that the 21/2 refers to two and a half, not 21 over 2.

And how far do you blow it up beforehand? I got a (small) tail, the arms, and body before I ran out of balloon...

Thanks for the post, it looks very cool (once I get it, it will be MORE cool  Cheesy )!
