We are very happy that we found Grampy's Magic at this website. He was great with the performance and price. Besides magic show he also did balloons for all the kids. I would recommend him to the parents who look for great entertainment for their kids birthday party.

Beth was a great help for fulfilling a last minute inhouse field trip at our daycare center. She was also able to fulfull our request to paint over 80 kids in a short amount of time and did a fanstastic job!!! She is a very talented person and the children, staff, and parents were amazed by her great artistic skills! Beth was very polite and patience with each and every child from the ages of 2-11 and with the small work space she was provided was able to improvise. I will definitely be keeping her in mind for future events at the center!!! Thank you again Beth for your great work and time! Bensenville KinderCare

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.

We hosted a family night at our school for the Kindergarteners. The kids absolutely loved the Magic Show put on by Pocket Circus. They arrived to set up on time and put on a wonderful and entertaining night show for the kids. The adults had a great time too! Very polite and easy to work with. I recommend Pocket Circus for a fun and entertaining show!

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.

Mark was such a wonderful performer, just perfect for our annual Halloween event, The Wiggles & Giggles Halloween Bash, which is always the Thursday evening before Halloween and is held outdoors in a Chicago City Park. There were extra challenges that he had to face, such as it being outdoors on a 50 degree slightly windy day, that the children and their parents were continually arriving, and that the dogs in attendance in costumes could be a distraction, however Mark was not affected by any of this. He got the attention of the children in the crowd, had them gather at the foot of the stage for his performance, and really spoke to them in a way to keep them totally engaged and excited for his magic show. He got huge cheers from the very attentive audience, and was a real hit with our attendees. This was the first time we hired talent to entertain the kids while they waited for the Costume Parade and Contests, and we were 100% thrilled that we found Mark. I highly recommend him if you want to have a fun and engaging performer at a party for kids. We hope to see him again next year!

My family and I attended a Chai Lifeline Purim party on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, where Tamar from Tamariel paints was face painting the kids...as usual, Tamar did an amazing job, not only face painting, but making ALL my kids, special needs kids included, feel like a million bucks. She is wonderful, patient, and skilled. She gives each child her undivided attention. We have been to many functions where Tamar has worked, and my children look forward to getting face painted by her. It is the highlight of every party, and when Tamar is not there, they are very disappointed. I would recommend Tamar and Tamariel paints to anyone looking for a great face painting experience.

John was a pleasure to work with. He was hilarious and all of our guests adults and kids alike loved his performance. It was great seeing the kids involved in the magic show and actually enjoying his jokes. I received a lot of compliments for him and was asked how they could book him for their next party. He was on the higher price scale but was definitely worth the extra money. He brought his own props and as promised stayed until all the kids had their poodle balloons. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a funny, charming, punctual and enthusiastic performer. His magic show got an A+ from me and my guests.

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!!
