This book has been written with the idea of presenting some different types of balloon items and to give some ideas to the walk-around clown. All of them have been audience-tested.
In the past I have read where one must be able to turn out a set number of balloon animals per hour or they will be in trouble. Nothing could be further from the truth. For years I have clowned at Shopping Centers and Picnics and, although I don't turn out more than sixty balloon animals per hour at my fastest pace, I still please the crowds at the places I appear and worked at one shopping center for over four-and-a-half years. It is not the speed that counts, but the quality. I turn out balloon animals with personality. They are loved by children of all ages, three to ninety-three. You too can do the same thing. Just take your time and make animals with personality. It pays. Pays with repeat business for you. Don't ever sacrifice quantity for quality.
