Our face painting/balloon artist was really great with the kids. She had a sweet demeanor and even came dressed as a character from Frozen. I thought you did a great job on the face painting. To be honest I didn't think the balloon animals were just ok. But I thought her face painting was really nice. The parents seem to like it as well. I recommend people hiring her. Her bid was much more expensive than the other bids *$100 more* But I figured because she can do balloons and paint faces she would be worth it. & I liked the professional website and payment option. In hindsight I probably would've asked to get no balloon animals and paid a little less. Otherwise, I think she did a great great job. I gave a 5 for professionalism, demeanor and face painting.

Ani was great! She communicated with me that she was running late due to traffic and it was much appreciated; especially since she worked on a new time request for me. The kids loved their paintings and their balloon creations. I'll be calling her again and am recommending to friends and family.

Ashley provided wonderful entertainment at our son's sixth birthday party. Boys and girls alike loved her face painting and balloon art. We had to move the party to a bowling alley at the last minute and Ashley accommodated the change and worked in a small (not ideal) space and made it work so smoothly. I'd highly recommend Ashley for any party.

Boswick did a magic-comedy and balloon art show for the kids for our Bring Your Kids to Work Day. We had a wide range of ages (between 1 - 11) but Boswick had all of them mesmerised. The kids had a great time. There was a lot of laughter and giggles! Some of the kids were quite outspoken but Boswick was a natural entertainer and took it all in his stride. Thanks for all the fun, Boswick, hope to have you again soon!

Dan did an outstanding job and went way above and beyond on very short notice. We hired him to make balloon art for people at a corporate offsite. He took the time to research our company and showed up w/ a big balloon piece in the shape of our logo. He came with his wife / assistant who did the amazing balloon animals for people while Dan did a magic show. He personalized the show to include things about our company. He's experienced, professional and a great communicator. I would definitely hire him again.

The artist did a great job. Only downside was she was only able to help 9 kids in the hour, and their website said they could get to 15-20 per hr. Some kids were turned away. Other than that she did a great job.

I hired Kaella for my daughters 5 th birthday mermaid party. She came dressed as a beautiful blue mermaid and was so sweet and professional with everyone she encountered. I really appreciated that she utilized her time well and even blew bubbles and played games when there was time between face painting and balloon making. (Which are the only two things I was expecting/paying for) also she was VERY patient with the kids. There were several special needs children that needed extra attention and then of course the dozens of popped balloons by all the children, and still Kaella was sweet and accommodating. Even teaching the kids how to not pop the balloons by making up silly stories about cloud Ballon puppies. All the kids were happy and entertained. And for me I felt a lot of party entertainment needed relief. I was actually able to sit back and have some pizza and enjoy watching the happiness on my daughters face. Good job kaella. I would recommend for any kids party.

I received as a birthday gift one of Elaine's exceptional balloon creations. It was shipped from northern California to southern Arizona and arrived in fantastic condition. The combination of balloon color, size and shape was fabulous! The Bumble Bee was a big hit with my two year old niece. I highly recommend Hooray Balloons creations to anyone who enjoys a fun and playful gift.

We had the best experience with this company. Communication with this company was nice and easy. Elmo and his helper were punctual, fun, professional, and very kind. Elmo danced and acted his part even when the kids were distracted by other things. The balloon elmos and swords were loved by all kids and the music was perfect for the kids age group (2-4 yr olds). Overall, the birthday boy and birthday girl had a blast. We will definitely use this company again.

Shelley is an amazing artist. We had her do all the artwork for our babies room (baby is now almost 6 weeks old). She free-hand painted (!) directly on the walls and everything looks amazing. She painted mommy and baby hippos, a pair of giraffes, mischeivous monkeys, penguins, turtles, a bird and scenery right onto the wall!! She also made wooden cutouts of mom and baby elephants, an adorable zebra and a baby giraffe. We are so grateful that she made our babies room beautiful and unique. I wish I could post pictures to show you. Everyone who sees the room is in awe. Shelley is truly talented and willing and able to create whatever you wish (and she has the amazing ability to improvise as well if you're not exactly sure what you want). I give her a seven star rating!

I am a part of a home school group and we hosted a fun day for a group of 10 of our children at a park. We hired a Faerie from Happily Ever Laughter who did Magic Tricks, Made Balloon Animals and played with the kids. Miss Fauna was absolutely delightful and held all of the children's attention. One of the little girls in our group was having a birthday later on in the week and Miss Fauna even brought a present just for her, the little girl was over the moon. My children would not stop talking about Faerie Fauna for a week after the get together, she has real life fans in our household.

I used Kool Kidz for my 1 yr old Minnie Mouse Party, they were able to accommodate my last minute request. They were absolutely fantastic, they got here exactly on tome and ready! They ring the doorbell and my 1 yr old girl was so excited to see Minnie, they played games and other activities and took pictures with the family and cake! Minnie took a picture with us in the photo booth before she left. Moments that we will have forever. I highly recommend Cool Kidz and Tiffany for your event! Once again Thank You!
