Hey guys, how we doing? I was at a local take away yesterday when the owner came out to see me, he wants me to do a special balloon for his wife for her 40th birthday on friday, he's going to surprise her with a trip to Austraillia and he wants me to do a kangaroo holding a 40th balloon (I got a good helium one coming from the party store) and the tickets. So I had to see if I could make the kangaroo still. Not sure where I found it, youtube I think but I liked it. What do you think? (Also, if you really want the tutorial link I can find it for you.)

Thanks very much vincen, I know I forgot to trim the feet but he was just a practice balloon and given away to a neighbor as soon as I took the photos (I trimmed the feet before I did of course) Just wanted to see if I could still make him.

That looks good. Is there any way you can make a pouch?

If you build it they will come (and take it away!)

Practicing reverse inflating the balloon this way you can get away from having a knot on the feet.  It is a nice design though.

There might be easier ways, but here is how I do it:  Get a puff into the balloon, then squeeze it to the end, then inflate the rest of the way.

hold the uninflated balloon about 1/4-1/2 inch away from the tip end with one hand - using your other hand stretch the end of the balloon multiple time - when you blow up the balloon the air should start filling at the "wrong" end

I got large hands, both of mine together normally6 covers most of the 260 so it has about an inch from the end, the air, constrained by the hands fills the tip first, once it gets going it'll inflate from the tip towards the mouth instead of the mouth towards the tip. That is reverse inflating.

Thanks for the great tips. I have done it inadvertently before; now I will attempt to do it "vertantly". Grin

twisted, you must mouth inflate or have a floor pump.  You could never do that with a hand pump

I do not use a pump, I mouth inflate all my balloons. They are easier to twist that way and I can determine exactly by mouth inflating how much air I need so am seldom over inflating them.
