There's something about a balloon monkey.
It's so dang cute because monkeys are cute!
They are incredible primates with their intelligence, playfulness and chicanery. Monkeys are smaller than apes and have tails. They are often animated and can be mischievous. Monkeys are practical jokers and it's all in good fun. They have interesting facial expressions and enjoy complex communication. They're also social in nature.
Creating a monkey balloon is exciting and can be intricate. Using different sized balloons helps craft a dynamic balloon design. Great artwork can also help capture the playfulness much like real monkeys.
Monkey balloons are popular to give as a gift because they are unique. But I can't take all the credit for the monkey design above. My daughter insisted the girlie monkey needed a bow and a belly button. I have to say I'm pretty happy how it turned out. The belly button was a neat detail and the gift recipient enjoyed it.
So what's your sign?
According to the Chinese zodiac, if you are a monkey then the following may be true of you. Of course, don't take all this to heart.
The general image of people born in the Year of the Monkey is of always being smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth. They are lively, flexible, quick-witted and versatile. Their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings. These include an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others.
I love how clever and smart monkeys can be.
They are terrific social animals helping and protecting one another. They like to groom their friends to show compassion, kindness and support. All very valuable qualities in monkeys and humans.
Monkeys can also be quite loud like the Howler monkey. It's considered one of the loudest animals because it can be heard from miles away. They aren't shy! They can be aggressive (hey! that's my food!) as they stand up for themselves. If monkey is in your symbol you may be inflexible and defensive, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Don't worry, these balloon monkeys are flexible and fun!
Regardless of their age, if you have a practical joker in your life give them a balloon design. A playful person receiving a balloon design like this will love your sense of humor. Your thoughtfulness will be appreciated and remembered.
