We hired the Great Boodini for a 9th Birthday party with a Halloween theme. The kids had a great time and so did the adults! Keeping 24 kids entertained is no easy task, especially a bunch of 9 years. They loved the show and would definitely recommend!

Dale was great. He arrived early and was very kind and patient with the kids. The boys loved the football helmet balloons. The girls loved the Disney princess; Elsa, Ariel, and Jasmine. All the kids loved the pet turtles and other balloon items he made (swords, lightsabers...he is very talented). He made multiple balloon animals for the kids including those that accidentally popped. We have 20-30 kids attend and had him for 3 hours and would definitely recommend him and the time...he always had kids keeping him busy.

Tracy was on time and did a great job with the kids face paint. She was very patient with the kids as there were about 25 7-10yr olds excited and arguing over who was next. She was very creative with the overly creative ideas the kids brought to the table but was definitely able to deliver.

I wish I could add more stars to the 5 star rating above, and for as many stars I would add they will be less for the appreciation that I have for Steve and his work and his magic that he spreads around when he is performing. We hired Steve for the magic show and balloons package for my daughter's birthday party and I admit it was so much FUN. Steve is so humble and nice and he was on time and the way he engages his audience is mesmerizing. We had 20 kids and some adults of all ages but not for a moment during the show were we taking eyes off him. He had everyone engaged including the birthday girl and her friends and the adults too. He was right on time with all his equipment and everything started as planned and where did that hour go by we don't know. He was so patient while making balloons for all the kids at the end of the party and took time to tend to everyone's needs. If money is on your mind while looking for a magician - lemme tell you he a very inexpensive package. If entertainment is on your mind - lemme assure you he is full on FUN, Excitement, Entertaining. For all in all he is your guy for all questions...you will never go wrong if you puck him.....he is a billions bucks in FUN. Thank you Steve for everything from the bottom of our hearts...

We hired Lindsey to do facepainting at our company picnic which was held at a park. We were expecting 300-500 people so we knew we would have lots of kids! Lindsey was nice enough to bring along a friend to help. They arrived early to set up and started facepainting for all of the little cuties that started to line up! They were great with kids! Not only did the kids love the art work on their faces, the parents were extremely happy with how nice they were to their kids! Everything went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with her service! She is on the top of our list to contact again in the future for not only facepainting but other services she offers. I most definitely recommend her! Thanks for everything! Genesis

Sharon worked our elementary school's Ice Cream Social (250+ kids attended) and she was a huge hit! Her designs were fun, creative and great for all ages. Best of all, she stayed 40 mins later than our contracted time, so every kid in line was painted. She arrived early & stayed late. A pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend and use her again.

Everything about my experience working with InnoKreative Arts was awesome! Kristyn was so sweet for the start and responded so quick to all my questions about her services. We touched base a couple of times before the party as well. Her work is so worth what she charges and it's a great deal for such awesome work!!! We didn't get to speak a lot during my son's 2nd birthday party today but from what I saw she was great with all the kids and adults and so patient with everyone to get all their requests done. I would definitely book her again in the future!

I like the fact she’s very responsive I was looking for someone to come out to my Baskin location and entertain kids she really came thru for me. Not only did she come out to my location but she also went to another store of mine prior to coming out to me. Event was successful thanks to Lady Fefee.

Zoltan with Bounce N Celebrations did an AMAZING job at my son's 3-year-old birthday party. We had about 35 kids between the ages of 2-8, and he was very patient, very professional, very engaging, and the kids absolutely LOVED his work! The glitter tattoos were the biggest hit, but the balloon swords and wands were not to go unnoticed - the kids loved those as well. Zoltan is extremely prompt and thorough. He got RIGHT back to me any time I called with a question or an update weeks before the party, he was very clear when he outlined what I should expect or needed to do, and he just made everything very simple and easy on my end. I felt in good hands and I could tell right away he was a reliable professional and person who I could trust. He is also very kind and reasonable and humble, and he is good with the kids. He didn't mind staying a little later so that some of the kids could get a balloon in addition to their tattoos, and when one child's balloon popped, he made another one even though the party was over and he had packed up all of his things. He didn't even bat an eye about it - it was his natural reaction to unpack and fix the problem. He was really perfect entertainment for our party, and we look forward to hiring him again. I strongly recommend Bounce N' Celebrations. Thank you Zoltan!!

Our experience was outstanding. The company was super responsive to questions and the registration process, even on weekends and fairly priced. The actual face painter was super friendly, extremely patient and worked so well with children. Though you might expect this from a face painter who works with children, that is not always the case and I felt this individual did so above and beyond what you would even expect! Plus, the airbrush designs were so cool and the kids loved them. I had several parents ask for contact information as they were picking their kids up. We will be sure to use this company agin!
