Perfect entertainer for a kids party, highly recommended!
DawnMarie was great! We contracted with her for face-painting, balloon tying, and glitter tattoos for 2 hours. She showed up early to set up (but doesn't charge for set-up and clean-up time), she uses very high-quality face painting make-up, her balloon tying is more complex than what you typically see, and she is great with both kids and parents. I got comments from parents the entire time about her impressive artistic painting skills. The kids loved their face and arm paintings and glitter tattoos. Her intricate balloons were a total hit. She may be more expensive than some of the other entertainers out there, but this is really a situation where you get what you pay for. The quality was a cut above, she is insured, uses high-quality hypoallergenic and gluten-free make-up, and takes great pride in her work. Great experience!
Absolutely enjoyed having the Great Boodini at our communion party! We had a large crowd with 50+ kids from all age groups and he engaged all! Very appreciative of his willingness to be flexible with the timing for start of show. Very glad we picked him!
Dee was phenomenal. She was quick, her work was spot on. All the kids were thrilled & the parents were very impressed. All of the 25 kids were able to get their cheeks painted within 2 hours.
Nora is an amazing energetic entertainer. Kids loved and enjoyed her. Highly recommend her!!!
We hosted a small New Years party. We had about 15 adults and 7 kids. Vallen was fantastic and let our guests be very creative with how they wanted their faces decorated! She is a great artist and was a lot of fun to have at our party. We will hire again for sure!
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.
Amazing show! The kids were captivated by the magic show and the parents all loved the show and comedy. We really enjoyed the show and will definitely have them back for our next kids party!
Was a great addition to my daughter's baptism. She was running a bit late and kept in touch regularly and made sure to add time to make up for it. The kids (and adults) loved her!!
So sweet and calm Even when the kids are super excited and try to get seconds... and thirds :))
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.
Bryan came on time, was very polite and came with a lot of energy. We all had a great time. He is very funny too. Entertainment for the kids and adults.
We had a great experience with Party Picassos. Entertainers were friendly, artistic, and very patient with a huge group of children. Value was terrific! We would use them again!
Scott did a great job and was excellent entertainment for the kids in attendance. He catered to the adults & childrens request. Professional, kind & cool guy to hire. I'd definitely recommend his services to others.
Kazar, thank you so much for your Magic Show performance last night with Queen of All Saints CubScout Pack 3942. Your showmanship and ability to keep the attention of the scouts and the rest of the crowd was amazing. I know the kids thoroughly enjoyed it and are still talking about the tricks and illusions. thank you!! James Giebelhausen Pack 3942 CubMaster
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!!
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!
Amazing face painter! Very professional and skilled. Kids had an amazing time! Will definitely use them again! Thank you!
Ed was great. He was on time and the kids were just having a ball and laughing out loud. His rates are reasonable and comparable with other entertainers, but the added comedic spiel is what put it over the top!
Diana did awesome job face painting kids and adults face at my party. All her face painting was excellent and she is very fast and very good at her work. Will definitely work with her again.
