We offer balloon twisting, children's music shows, face painting, fashion nails, and giant bubble shows. Our people skills shine through all we do. What I love about this job is the moment of wonder created when I can make something beautiful appear seemingly out of nowhere.(show more)

First and foremost, we focus on neatness and cleanliness. We take measures that go above and beyond to ensure customer comfort and enjoyment, and eliminate worry. The way our team members represent us is also important. We defy the stereotype and re-educate our customer base on what it truly means to be a professional artist. I love the variety of work I'm afforded to be involved with. It keeps me growing as a professional and an artist. We've had many challenges from developing current skills to our own assessed "next level" to acquiring new abilities to better serve our customer base. Ultimately, I'm "living the dream" - I am "what I wanted to be when I grow up" and doing what I've always wanted to do with my life - and that's very rare.(show more)
Our attention to detail is top notch. We are passionate about what we do. Seeing the smile on the persons face who I just painted; hearing the Ooooh's and Aahhhh's from on lookers.... being part of a wonderful and beautiful memory for that person.(show more)
People and organizations hire me to foster a dynamic vibe with balloon "magic". If you are planning a small or large gathering of any sort, with some need for unique pizzazz, I could be a great addition to your party. Being dubbed as "a normal person who can dazzle with balloons", I have a passion for engaging with people (yes, children to adults) and creating fun moments together with wit, humor and creativity. I make every attempt to be prompt, professional, relaxed, and flexible. I wear the most natural smile which my parents put on me. I've entertained at a wide array of events: bar mitzvahs, wedding receptions, large fundraisers, birthday parties, block parties, festivals, carnivals, christenings, grand re-openings, bring-your-kids-to-work day, and the like. People typically hire me as the lead entertainer, and also as a part of a larger mix of events and entertainment. The typical amount of time is 1.5 to 2 hours, but I've been known to entertain for an entire day, without losing much luster. You will have fun!(show more)

I offer the following: a) Musical -- This show is best suited for the smaller child. There are finger plays, finger puppets, children's stories, interactive dancing (freeze dance) and some music with the guitar. b) Clown Magic -- This show is where I do sleight of hand according to the age group of the child. With the younger children, I do what's called "toy or sponge magic." If a child tries to grab anything out of my hands, that object turns into a soft toy or a finger puppet. With the older child, I do the "now you see it, now you don't" type of magic. I don't use living animals of any kind in my shows. c) Face Painting or Balloon Animals -- This show is where each child over the age of 2 gets to pick either the balloon or face paint of their choice while the birthday child gets either one balloon or one face paint, two balloons or two face paints -- whatever they choose because it's their birthday! Each child under the age of 2 gets to pick either a child-safe rubber ducky or face paint of their choice. Note that it takes about 2 1/2 minutes per child per balloon or face paint.(show more)

Mr. Bob the Magic Man is not an agent and definitely not a company-run franchise, but simply an independent children's birthday party entertainer. He has performed for children since 1989! In April of 2014, it'll mark 25 years of entertaining the little ones. Thanks to his love of kids and dedication to the art of magic, he has managed to become the most sought-after birthday party entertainer in the Chicagoland area! Parents book him several weeks and even months in advance. That's how busy he is. He has gone to parties where children actually greet him by name, thanks to previous visits! I've always loved magic and entertaining children. There are always children's neighbors, nieces, nephews and grand children that I could try my new magic on. If I get a thumbs-up from the kids, I'll incorporate the new magic tricks in my show,(show more)
Faster than a speeding turtle, more powerful than marshmallow fluff, able to bend steel-gray balloons in his bare hands: it's Crazy Uncle Rich, the world-famous balloon bender! Seriously, I have been a balloon twister for over 19 years, entertaining at birthday parties, company and church events, family picnics, and anywhere kids are having fun! I can work sitting, standing or walking around without a break for several hours. My weekends book up early, so please let me know as soon as you decide to invite me to your party! While I am at your event, I will bring a full burst of energy, and also a joyful attitude with a smiling face for the entire time I am there. Out of the hundreds of fun designs I can make out of balloons, there are at least 50 that only take a minute or two each.(show more)
I possess a creative, child-like silliness that comes out in my art. I try NOT to do each design like the last. I try to make each of my creations an ORIGINAL. I need to put my own spin on every design. As a Party Picasso artist, I try to offer a great variety of designs: pretty, macho, scary, silly and wild; in addition to seasonal designs and themes for every event. Being an artist with a degree and over 20 years of experience, I have no problem taking requests. It can be a lot of fun. For example: a hockey puck with eyes, arms and legs holding a can of beer or a half butterfly and half tiger design. Making the customer happy is my job! I also believe in constantly researching and working on new designs; as well as practicing to get my work at top form. It is like any other talent - practice makes perfect, and that's my goal. EVERYTHING! The expressions of my clients are priceless! I try not to show my customers their faces until they are finished. Then I get that "Oh my goodness" face when they look into my mirror. It really makes my day! I am a people person, so I enjoy the conversation and the compliments. It doesn't matter what the ages of my clients are. I am glad to be there. Face painting has changed over the years. Now, it's NOT just for kids. People of every age are interested in getting painted. It's like getting a tattoo without the "forever"commitment. Because I work with a wide audience, I get a larger variety of design requests. It's never boring. Being a face painter brings me to a different audience with every gig: birthday parties, night clubs, sporting events, store family events, schools, reunions, baby showers and more. So I paint cheeks, arms, legs, shoulders and even bellies! It is a great blessing to love your job. And face painting is what I was born to do!(show more)
