Creating a Teddy Bear through a balloon medium

Teddy Bears are easily created through using a balloon.There are several tricks that are important that are trade secrets.

The main one is to lightly dust your hands with either talcum powder (baby ones are really good fine powders to use) or a corn flower dusting. These powers inhibit the static electricty so easily transfered to the balloons through weather, electric cables or clothing.

The second hint is to not ‘fill’ the balloon so that they are hard to touch. The balloon is rubber. Too much tension on the rubber equals a rupture. Therefore you have a bang about to happen. The balloon holder will be upset. Upset children are bad for business!!! So the child gets a second ballon, then a third. By this time there is a retetive pattern set.

If you are to draw on the balloon use clearly identifyable non toxic pens.
