Kimby was absolutely stunning as Princess Ariel at my daughter's 4th bday party. Her costume, wig, attitude was all more than I could have ever expected! She was punctual, friendly and totally connected to the kids the entire time. I was concerned she would be overwhelmed by all the kids vying for her attention all at once but she handled it like a champ! She was more than accommodating and patient and fun! I do wish she would've paid more special attention to my daughter (the birthday girl) but the most important thing is that all the kids had a wonderful time and didn't want her to leave! She kept me informed and communicated with me throughout the entire process as well. I will definitely hire her again!Aug 19, 2017Verified
Kb Magic was wonderful! She came to my daughter’s birthday party dressed as Elsa and entertained a dozen toddlers for an hour - no small feat. My daughter is still talking about Elsa and the adults enjoyed it too!! I would definitely recommend KB Magic as a way to make a child’s birthday more magical!!Nov 5, 2017Verified
Everything was awesome until I found out later that many of the kids didn't get a balloon which was disappointing.Oct 30, 2017VerifiedKimberly M.'s reply
Dear Joshna, I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed that not all the kids got a balloon. Unfortunately, it was an issue of time constraints, and while I am generally flexible about extending the duration of my stay, I did have another event booked directly after yours. I did actually stay past the reserved time slot to make extra balloons, but children were still approaching even as I was packing up, and I had to keep moving to make it in time for my next booking. I'm glad I was able to be a part of your beautiful celebration. Thank you! Best, Kimby
Kimby is great with children, very positive, enthusiastic and professional. I highly recommend her.Sep 26, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We start with your specific date and time that you would like me to arrive at your party. I will check my availability, and if it all matches up, from there I will have you fill out a questionnaire covering all the basics that I will need to know in order to make your party great. I require a $50 deposit to hold your date and time. Instructions for making the deposit will be emailed to you. Once your deposit is made, I will confirm receipt, and then you're all set! Your booking is complete and I will see you at the party! :-) I know party planning is a lot of work, so I try to make the booking process as easy as I can.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been trained by the very best: my sister-in-law Kris of magicprincess.com ! Kris has been in the field for 15 years and she taught me everything. I am also a long time nanny, so have lots of experience being silly around kids, and I'm a painter and sculptor, so face painting and balloon twisting are just an extension of those practices!
