I get asked to do a frog often enough, but don't have a good, quick frog. Any ideas on how to do a nice one or two frog balloon? One balloon preferably.

Actually, I just did a search on the web and was surprised to find This two balloon frog on video. Very nice.

Thanks for the link! I've been asked to make a frog a couple times and a green dog didn't do the trick... this is perfect, quick and easy but it looks hard enough so people will praise you for making what they requested.

I actually found Don's simple two frog balloon on line as well, but really liked the one from Balloon Dude Dale. It took a couple of trys to get the proportions right, but it looks wonderful.

Don more complicated frog (not the simple version) is really one if the best!

I have to agree with Scott, I like Dales Frog (for a fast simple frog) However Dons more complicated Frog is one of the best (as Kevinr suggested).

Scott,

Dewey's Bubble Buddies has a one-balloon frog that a child can hold in a hand and make it jump. It really is adorable and a big hit wherever I go. As you probably know, qualatex peddles frog heads that you can add to whatever body design suits your fancy. Though the frog heads don't appeal to the purists in the twisting world, they do speed things up a bit when you have a long line of impatient customers. I use the frog head with Obrochta's little man shape to give the frog a more human appearance, which is always a hit, too.

Best,
Zipper

I really like Professor Wonders balloon instructions, the first link is the frog I use and the second link is an awesome lion! I learned a lot from the Professors page when I was starting out.

Wayne,

I scoped out the lion, and I can see why you liked it. I would advise a slight modification to make your lion even better. Instead of twisting the nose out of the same balloon used for the muzzle and blackening it in, twist dog ears to the front for the snout and then add a black balloon bubble for the nose. You will be the talk of the town.

Keep Puffin'
