Zippy twisted balloons for my 4 year olds birthday party and did an excellent job. He was the highlight of the party despite other entertainment. The kids and the patents equally enjoyed what he had to offer. His creations are super creative and intricate, and he even showed up extra early to set up. I would hire him again without question.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback on how we did at your 4-year old’s birthday special party. We had an exciting time creating special balloons for all and enjoy turning frowns upside down on everyone's faces. We look forward to making more balloons at other extraordinary events for you, your family or friends. Always, Zippy

Zippy is amazing! He is highly professional and prompt to respond to emails and questions. Even before we met, I had no doubts that I had made the right choice by hiring him for my son's 5th birthday party. He arrived on time and looked professional (actually he arrived 15 minutes early in order to prepare his 'balloon station'). He set up a nice table with awesome visual displays. The kids loved seeing all of their options laid out in front of them like a balloon animal 'menu'. And his display showed only a tiny fraction of what Zippy could do! The kids swarmed him as soon as he was set up and I didn't see a single unhappy "customer". You honestly have to see this guy in action to believe it. The kids weren't walking away with wimpy swords or flimsy poodles. I-kid-you-not, I saw a Spider-Man shooting a twisty web, a monkey climbing a tree with bananas on it, an alien riding a motorcycle, and even a Despicable Me Minion (for my youngest kiddo, Milo). He was great with all the kids; patient, calm and kind. I actually overheard three kids tell their moms they wanted him for their next birthday party! There wasn't a lull in 'customers' for Zippy the entire time he was at the party; there was always a kid (or adult!) patiently waiting for him to twist up something awesome. I would also like to mention that Zippy made more balloon 'things' in 1.5 hours than I could've ever imagined or hoped for! Most kids left with at least one giant trash bag full of crazy, cool balloon creations (some with two or more!). Zippy exceeded my expectations in every way. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation! And for any event! (I've never seen so many adults smiling over balloon animals! Ha!) Zippy is a wonderful entertainer for all events and all ages! Thanks, Zippy, for making Lincoln's birthday so memorable!

Zippy did a great job at this all adult party. He made some really elaborate horse/unicorn balloon hats and he was a great addition to a festive party! Definitely added the light touch I was looking for.
