    My four-year-old son loved Spiderman and all his special stunts moves.... it was the best birthday ever! He entertained the kids for a full hour while the adults were able to eat and have a little adult time. Great price, great quality and great customer service .

    Karrine is fantastic artist and extremely professional. She should up early and was ready to go by the time the party started. I would definitely hire her again for another birthday party.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We send out our menu, the client selects their package and add-one, we send out our contract and they have 2?days to fill out and sign it electronically and pay their 50% deposit. Once we have these items their entertainment is officially booked!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
From the owner: I am a professional event planner I have 18 years experience. I am a pro face painter and artist. I pay attention to detail, have an artists eye and have designed many costumes and wigs.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We do not have a standard pricing system for every theme package as every theme and booked entertainer is different. Ask for our menu for your particular theme when contacting us.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started doing this when I was a stay st home mom of two little children. What started as a little princess party business on the side grew to a full service entertainment business that has entertained over 11,000 children in 8 years!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Our clients like to book our costumed characters because they are many professional actors and actresses are multi-talented that sing, dance, face Paint and balloon twist! And are all great children's entertainers to boot. Our specialty is theme parties and we host a lot of custom theme parties that fit our clients needs and budgets!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Compare apples with apples when price comparing. Not every entertainment business is the same. Ask lots of questions.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That the prices we quote include rehearsal time, getting into costume time and performance time. What people are paying for is professional performers. So, our prices reflect all of these things to give each client the best possible performance for their celebration!
