The Great Boodini was outstanding! Kind, professional, talented, patient - all traits that made working with him fun. At our party, he entertained guests - adults and kids. The party was at a restaurant and The Great Boodini accomodated that setting great. He performed at terrific mix of magic, juggling, and balloon art. The show was lively and fun. Kids were engaged and thrilled with their balloon sculptures. I definitely reccomend the Great Boodini! I would hire him again, hands down.

I hired Paul aka Grampy for my kids party as a Ballon Twister. He quote was the first offer I recieved and the best one. He arrived well before the start time and got started 15 mins prior itself which I felt speaks of his professionalism. We recieved alot of good words for his ballon work on the animals he made and they were quite detailed with eyes too!! I will hire Paul again and encourage other parents to do so as well. - From a Happy Host Dad Anwar S

We hired Susan to come and do Henna tattoos at our daughters 12th bday party this past weekend. It was a last minute decision, something we thought the girls may enjoy. Susan was one of the 3 quotes I received through thumbtack. I am thrilled to write that hiring Susan was the best decision we made for that party. Not only was she completely affordable, but her passion, and talent as an artist is amazing! Her henna tattoos were the best by far that I've ever seen. Not only were the girls at the party so happy with there henna tattoos, but the boys and even parents excitingly made there way to Susan to ask for designs too:)) lol! The party was a huge success! I will hire Susan again, every chance I have. Not only for the kids party's, but for all our gatherings, she had such a beautiful personality, and wonderful way about herself.. I received so many compliments from the children, and parents regarding Susan. Thank you so much again!!!:)

Brian had the kids laughing so hard with his sense of humor and tricks. We hired him for my son's 5th birthday party. He entertained about 15 to 20 kids and 30 adults. Watching the kids laugh and hold their attention for about an hour was worth every penny. Parents were all asking where I found him. If you are looking for a magician for your kids party I highly recommend Brian. I also checked out some of his YouTube videos. He has tricks and shows for all different age groups. Thanks Brian for making Anthony's birthday a fun and memorable party.

Jane was amazing! Came ten minutes early and when I asked her to stay an extra half hour she was more than gracious to stay. we had close to thirty kids at the party and each kid got multiple baloons. Kids were running around with two swords, a shield and a hat to boot. She was a huge hit at the party. Will definitely recommend to family and friends and would rebook in a heartbeat. Great job!

From start to finish working with the Pocket Circus team was a wonderful experience. Gabriela was prompt, professional, and friendly with the planning and arrangements. Mr. Firu was flawless as the entertainer at my 4 year old son's birthday party. My son had an earache the day of the party and was a bit cranky at times. Mr. Firu was able to handle the situation with style and grace. By the end of the show my son was laughing and participating! All of the guests ranging in ages from 1 to 77 enjoyed themselves and had an excellent time. I highly recommend Pocket Circus for one's entertainment source!

Scott was OUTSTANDING at my son's 1st birthday party. He had a singalong with all the kids at the party and really engaged them! I was singing along as well, to be honest. After the singalong he patiently created such complex balloons, these are not your average balloon animals folks, he made both of my nephews Pokemon characters too! Scott was so pleasant and I will hire him again next year for my son's next birthday. Thank you so much, Scott!

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...

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!

We really enjoyed Kazar's show, it was stuff we hadn't seen before and the kids liked it a lot and so did the adults. Arrived on time and was able to start the show earlier for me. Will definitely be hiring him again.

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!!
