Arteglobos has a spectacular link-o-loon balloon teddy bear design. Now this is my kind of bear!
I did not want to shell out 20 bucks for a bag of the large link-o-loon style balloons and instead went with the 6 inch as it was a lot cheaper, lol. The six inch ones were like 8 or 9 dollars if I remember correctly. This is going by the T Meyers balloon website prices.
I know now how to better figure which ends to tie together now that I have made my first one. I also found that I had to do a pinch twist of the ears to better keep the head in place. Perhaps I need to fiddle with sizing. Next time I will try to make the balloons rounder and let more air out. I also think I would have done stomach the other way around, narrow end facing up, next time I will know. I may also make mouth or snout a little smaller as well.
I did 4-5 pumps for the small balloon parts and 9 to 10 for the large also letting a little air out.
I found this to be an awesome very doable design that I hope will cause major head explosions of joy! The.lady instructor speaks spanish so I personally have no idea what she is saying, but she does a pretty good job instructing. She doesn’t show some parts that I think she should though, I would say her instructional is good but incomplete.

Here is my replication of arteglobos’s design. I made a very pretty blue one too for my mom.
