I was just wondering how far in advance you can make fondant figures (ie:teddy bears, elephants......etc)

You can make them as far in advance as you'd like really. Just keep them covered so that they don't collect dust if it's for more than a few days really. Maybe I'm just paranoid but that's what I would do! Good Luck!

Thank You...I'm doing a circus cake in June and I have not done fondant figures before so I wanted to start early to avoid extra stress!! : ]

The latest I make mine is about a week in advance.

I have made mine a month before hand...
But beware.. purple will fade to blue if not stored in a container that gets next to no light.

I thought you cannot make figures with fondant but have to use gum paste? What is the difference and why use one over the other? When and why do you use modeling chocolate?
