Do you like to use them in hats? Around a dog's neck? What's your favorite or unique way to utilize them?

I take it, your talking about the heart-shaped balloons not 260's twisted into hearts.

I like to use them to do the amazing tomato into fish trick. As well as using them as hearts twisters have found lots of other uses for hearts. They can be people's heads, car bodys, pig's heads, dog's heads,fish, angel's wings and bodys, part of an insects head, mittens, eyes, bicycle seats amd flower petals.

I buy pink white and red. The whites I use for eyes, the pink I twist one lobe to a nose and twist adound the eyes. Makes a great simple head you can rasin twist hair on top draw on a mouth. Red hearts with black eyes is a great spider man head.

underinflated 11" make great cat heads and 16" too rasin twist a tiny 160 bow under 1 ear and you have a hello kitty head.

Ralph Dewey used a pink as goofies muzzle.

I also use them for easy face, helicopter, fish, and other things. but hands down favorite is the butterfly, quick easy, and the kids love them. put it on a flower hat and your set. or just fill a clear 260 so you have 4" or so un-inflated and attach that to the butterfly and the kids dig it.

Yes you are....

on the Cardioid shape hold the top two round parts.

Don't pinch the bottom they don't like that. Not to mention you won't get far.

Ventricles was a funnier word than Atrium.

LOVE the DUCK!!!!

Only thing is I was half expecting hte penguine on the DVD is that going to be on the next one?
IN short BEST £18.12 I have spent on balloon instructional stuff. Which is about $200 at todays exchange rate I think (i may be over estimating!)

***! I looked in my Oxford english dictionary and it was not in there! Either you loked it up or you just thought all that mumbo jumbo would stop me from arguing?? Well it worked.

No the DVD rocks (i love the intro as well ..... it is really nice to see original material all the way though). Has anyone done a proper review? I was tryignt o agree with the point that "you won't fall asleep watching it". Your sense of humour is great - we would get on well! I am of out toorrow to try adn find some clear 5inch balloons for the Duck I LOVE IT!!!!

Got you on one thing .....a fishing pole is NOT an animal!


Look forward to the next DVD. I got his one off ebay..... Prudhoe magic http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Prudhoe-Magic

Take care. Dave

Heart shaped balloons, when partially inflated (while keeping the lobes totaly uniflated) make great tongues for frogs, monkeys, whateva.

The cool thing is that you can reach your hand into the animal and squeeze the hidden, inflated portion of the heart, which then inflates the lobes which should be partially protruding from the front of the animal. So, you get a "ribit" or "(insert your favorite monkey noise here)" while the air squeezes to inflate the lobes and then retreats back to the main body of the heart after you've released the pressure.

I've seen 2 different balloon guys, both real solid pros in my area, do this. I picked it up from them. I've no clue who created the idea.

Probably my explanation is incomprehensible...so just remember that you can do something really cool when you use a partially inflated heart balloon as an animal tongue!!!

Thank you for embracing my concept of balloon teaching, I have always known this is the way it should be. The very few DVDs I have watched bored me to tears and I like this stuff!!!! I do have to note who inspired me to create such a DVD ... Dave Williamson. I loved his quirky style of teaching magic. I have been planning this DVD for over 10 years. I finally found a producer who shares my vision and has a great eye.

Dave,
I would love to do a UK lecture tour either in the fall or the spring. Got a local club? I have family in London.

I don’t go to a local club (i really should find one but us teachers tend to spend all hours planning or marking ...... or on the magic Café if we think we can blag it the next day / week)

I know of a couple fairly local. I will make enquiries with a "local" juggling shop and a local magician see what I can find out .... hey it would be so COOL for you to meet me. Erm think I may have to get you to re-arrange that last part.
