I just have no words to describe how awesomely Elsa (Jen) did entertain all the kids for complete 1.5 Hours!! The party was for my daughter's 5th B'day celebration. Before the event I talked with her on phone just for 2 times after I booked her online, before 1 month of the event. And I was so glad that she just arrived on right time and waited for couple of minutes to start magic show until all the kids arrived. We kept it surprise for all the kids as well as parent. When Elsa arrived kids felt like they are out of this world :) And she did magic show, Frozen Sing along, Balloons and Face painting for all the kids and then Cake cut and Happy B'day Song. All the guests were super happy. Kids were amazed by her. They just loved her! Very very Well Done Jen!!!

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.

Jen was awesome. She was very pleasant, very energetic, and kids loved her. She did story and face painting and everyone including my daughter missed her when she left. She was very professional and her suggestions helped us a lot even with photo session. She is very good to talk too, very responsive and we would love to bring her back.

Ani was great and the kids loved the balloons. I hired Ani for 2 hours and so there wasn't too many kids wanting balloons towards the end. I asked her if she could help my daughter with face painting and she helped without complaining. She came on time and made herself available to the last minute. Thanks Ani!

Ani did a great job with 10 rambunctious 6 and 7 year olds. Her face painting was beautiful and individualized to each child and they really enjoyed her balloon creations. She was on time and kept to the agreed upon schedule. Would definitely hire her again.

We hired Tina for our daughter's outdoor birthday party at the park. She painted faces and hair for the duration of the party without stopping -- despite some rainy weather. We were so impressed with her work ethic, friendly disposition and warm interaction with the kids, and her detailed face painting. All of the kids were so thrilled with their paintings, it really was a shame to have to wash them off. She also painted hair which was such a fun option because so many of the kids have dark hair and chalk just doesn't show up. We would definitely hire her again. Our daughter said that she specifically wants Tina at her party next year. We are very pleased.

It was for my daughter's 8th birthday party. She was awesome. I am a teacher and have seen a lot of face painters. Everyone at the party was blown away with what she did. From the moment we first spoke she made an outstanding impression and it carried through to the very end. Everyone took her information when they left and I will definitely be using her again. Thank you for making special memories for my daughter!!!

Shannon was the face painter for my child's birthday party (12 yr old). Shannon was great with the kids and was able to produce designs that each of the kids requested, even if it was not in the "design" book. She was very professional, on time, and even stayed later to make sure everyone had a chance to participate.

I am so happy that we chose Kb Magic for our baby girls 2nd birthday. She was SO amazing, the kids got to participate and even the adults enjoyed the show as well. She did a couple magic tricks for the kids and they were amazed and could not believe what they were seeing :D She also did some beautiful face paint which the kids loved so very much. They had many questions for her because of how exciting and interactive everything was. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable. I would definitely recommend Kb Magic to anyone.

Joan is great. My party was yesterday 9-21-13 and it was scheduled to be at a park. But it was raining..and Joan told me it would rain checking to see if I her another place just in case..but I didn't.....So I kept the party at the park And it began to rain on me while I was there. So after I cleaned up got home and set up for a house party Joan was calling. She came in and did all really nice face painting for about 15+ kids. They each were in love with their new look. Thanks again Ms. Joan and I hope to work with you again.

I had hired Joan to face paint for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. I read that she was a retired teacher and I thought that she would be great with kids. Joan was excellent! The kids loved her and kept going back to her for more paintings. I have been to plenty of kids birthday parties where there were face painters but her paintings were amazing! My friends want to hire her for their kids parties next year. Her price is very good and you get excellent work. I would definitely hire her again. Thank you Joan!!!

Wow what a great job!! We were so so happy with Inderpreet's fast response to our request for a quote. She arrived a few minutes early, which was nice considering the stress that goes into party preparations. She was also more than happy to stay a few minutes late to finish off the last few kids faces. Kids absolutely loved their face painting! Everybody was very happy! Don't hesitate to hire Inderpreet for your next party :)

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.

She was great! She painted every kids face and some adults too. Then did balloon animals marking sure the day girl had extras. She did a magic show where all the kids were totally engaged. She came dressed as a fairy, bday girl dressed like a fairy too! So that was pretty cool! She was very cheerful and it really came across that she loves her job! Even being outside the entire time in 100 degree weather!!! I'm going to recommend her to everyone!! Totally worth the money!

We had a birthday blast for my daughter last month with Fernando and Malaika from Fiesta Magic. With 19 kids, and instead of getting a jumpy, we decided to try something different this year. Fernando, the magician, had the kids and adults mesmerized with his illusions and card tricks. The best was that he was able to get and keep everybody's attention. Malaika was in a Minnie Mouse costume and she went above and beyond her time. It was hot that day and I knew it was hot for her in that costume. She was a trooper as kids posed with her to take photos. I also got the face painting and different shape balloons, which was a hit for the 13 and under kids. The only downside was that Fernando would not reveal any of his magic trick secrets when asked by the kids. But that's understandable. He said it takes him years of practice. I highly recommend Fiesta Magic to keep the kids engaged and because of the different options that they offer. They arrived on time as promised and that is very important to me. I'll be using them next year and have recommended them to other friends and relatives for their parties and picnics.

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.
