I can make balloon animals. Actually, if I am being entirely honest, I can make one balloon animal. In a variety of ways. My area of expertise is the sausage dog. It is the easiest of balloon animals. Two twists and you are done.
What is great about it is that it never fails to impress. Need to make a child smile? Twist off a sausage dog and hand it over. Works on grown-ups too. Although I wouldn't recommend it on a first date.
