The fact that you are an actual teacher has alot to do with the quality of your dvd. I've been
twisting balloons for 12 years, and seen a few dvds. This one has exellent angles and instruction
that covers every necessary detail in order to properly work with the balloon for success!
Also, there are quite a number of balloon figures you teach and they look more advanced than amateur.
I found the final dvd to be the most interesting and fascinating of the three! Thanks, Bobby, for
a fabulous instructional tool!

I've viewed all three sections of the DVD now and there is a lot of good information in them.
I really enjoyed the two dogs in section 3! They have been a big hit! You have many good tips in all
three sections that many books don't seem to cover.
The "Squeeze" before you twist each section has
save the life of many a balloon! No where had anyone ever said or mentioned that. That alone helped
a great deal. Also, the lock in twist have helped. The rainbow was also a hit with folks from our church.
So to me the purchase and the wait was worth it.
Just a comment on production, section 3 was better with the background. And, having done some video
production before, I know it's hard, but try not to stare at the camera so directly. Move you gaze around,
it looks for natural. Feel free to use any of my comments. I don't mind you giving my email out as long
as I don't get invaded with junk mail from it.Are you planning on doing any more tapes/DVD's. Of interest
to me would be the Skunk, the Martian and some other deluxe characters. And, finally, my wife is doing well.
Thanks for asking!

I Just wanted to say THANK YOU!!
I received your video yesterday and it is awesome. I spent the day home with my boys today and
practiced twisting. Just hearing all the little hints and tricks you have made a huge difference.
I probably popped about only 1/4 of the balloons I normally pop today (which was amazing in itself.)
We made the tiger/ leopard, parrots, zebra, hat, all the pirate gear, teddy bears, fruit basket and
the airplane and it was all so fun.
You are a really good teacher, you explained everything really well. I really liked that you
didn’t go too fast, that you twisted your body around so that the camera could see EXACTLY what
was going on, that you kept showing the basics so it would sink into our brains. I liked too that
you started off with some really basic shapes before you showed all those more advanced twists so
beginners would have a good platform to start from. I liked too that you explained why 260's are
called 260's (I didn’t know!), how to tie the balloons correctly, how to squeeze them to reduce
the pressure, how to move the knot up and down and rolling the ends though the balloon so the designs
don't come undone. I was really impressed. You come across as a really genuine, caring, friendly,
funny guy and I really enjoyed watching your video.
I’m looking forward to trying some of your larger multi balloon designs.
My boys who are 5 and 3yrs loved watching it as well and playing with the designs too. They danced
to your intro music, were fascinated with watching you put on your clown make up and we all spent
the afternoon running around the house like crazy with swords (mommy had a pink one), shields, pirate
hats, and parrots on our shoulders and played pirates on our couch pirate ship.
Most fun I have had in ages, so thank you. Very much.
You have made a big difference.

I just wanted to write you and tell you that my 2 daughters, ages 8 and 10, loved your
balloon-making video. After watching it for the first time, they had made several of the
balloon animals for the very first time! With the easy-to-follow instructions, directions
and your personal presentation, they were able to make the balloons and it gave them lots
of joy! Now they're thinking about entertaining at their own parties and making balloons
for their guests!!! Thank you so much!

Thanks for the input on face painting. You are welcome to use my comments or have anyone contact me.
I decided to introduce Mother Goose Story time to the local preschools, schools and for birthday parties so
on my quest to learn how to do balloon art I bought a few books and being a "show me" person found your tapes
on the internet. I love them! I found the books to be confusing as it is hard to actually show someone in
a book the different twists. Your tapes were consise and even encouraging when I hit a few tough spots.
I appreciate Your comments on the Teddy bear twists. It kept me practiting and I finally mastered it
I am now doing balloon art at a local retaurant and have a few parties and pre schools lined up. I had been
told by one of my libraries that my balloon art was the best they've seen.
Thank you again Bobby for doing them and also for your input on where to get heart and b-body
balloons and now face paint. As a rookie I appreciate all the help I can get.

I am so pleased that I ordered Tape 1. It taught me so much that I didn't know - for someone who brags
about making a bear juggling 3 balls, I found your basic tips invaluable. Now I realised that one should
master the basics before showing off. I feel more at ease and confident to tackle other fancy figures
on the tapes going forward. Thank you Scuteri for the a brilliant presentation and instructions on balloon
modelling. I do hope you will produce more videos & more fantastic sculptures. Lastly, your advice and
guidance on the subject is much appreciated.

The balloon art kits were a huge hit!!! The kids are already running out of balloons and
would like to know where they can get more. Alexis was amazed that her mom knew someone on
TV and is dying to meet you!!
That's all for now,

'Instructions Made Simple' is the accomplished goal of these balloon twisting videos.
The emphasis is on clear instructions. They are clear in organization, clear in camera
work, and clear in choice of figures. These tapes will make it easy for a non twister to
become a twister.

Bobby, thank you for the tape. It gave me ideas on how to make variations with the
‘cartoon dog’. I was able to expand how to expand the dog way beyond the typical 1 balloon
dog. I made my money back the first weekend, and I keep making more...

I watched both videos. They are real good but for someone who has been twisting for
3 years like me I got a few things out of them. The way to pop and how to put the balloon
inside a balloon was good for me. I learned the parrot and dog bone. Thanks!
I wish you allot of success and I hope to see one more advanced video in the future.
The videos, the music were great and the getting into make up was done well I got a kick
out of it Keep up the great work! Lorraine
