Nick truly is an Amazing individual! He is kind, considerate and extremely professional! We had him for a kid's camp, and he taught the kids how to make a balloon rocket and jet pack! He was super patient and kept the kids interested at all times! He then made balloon items/animals for the kids after! I would highly recommend him for ANY event!
Overall - the show was super and I highly recommend The Great Boodini for your kids birthday because: * He is great with communication!. Granted there is still a bit of time before your event and he's available on that date - he is very flexible with the time. Thank you so much! * The show is very interesting and you will not be disappointed. Both kids and parents were intrigued and amazed with the tricks performed. There was enough time spend to entertain the 'star' of the event as well as the guests. * The only minor issue was that during the balloon making stage - some kids were losing patience and started running around. I personally would rather see more tricks performed than have balloons made for each kid of the party. it was pretty fascinating and entertaining for the first five balloons but after that.. kids are kids.. But again, I'd be happy to hire him again anytime - absolutely worth the money you spend on the show! Thank you so much indeed, Natalie
Paul handled our company picnic (with over a 100 kids) like a true champ. He kept the line moving making balloon art and even displaying magic. Great Job!
We hired Aunt Nora for balloon twisting and face painting for my daughter's first birthday party. She arrived on time and was very polite and professional. She was quick and was able to attend to all of the kids.The kids enjoyed her and everyone felt relaxed. I could not have asked for a better experience. I will definitely be using Aunt Nora again. She is wonderful!
It was amazing! The guy came about 40 minutes early and was ready to start then... He spent the forty minutes teaching us kids how to make a balloon animal dog! Then he continued to wow with making some very talented balloon animals! Would definitely recommend!
Mr. Firu was booked to entertain 15 children and their parents. When the day came, after all the day of party cancellations we ended up with 5 children and parents. Mr. Firu still put on a show to entertain the adults and the birthday boy. He made sure everyone left happy with a balloon. He was very understanding and professional about the very small audience. I would book pocket circus for another event if needed. The grand finale was great and my 4 year old was very amused by helping with the magic. The adults we laughing and enjoying themselves also. My kiddos balloon sword disappeared after Mr Firu had already packed his gear but he still made my son 2 more balloon swords before leaving the party. It was a very small, honestly disappointing turnout but Pocket Circus made it unnoticeable to my son because of the showmanship delivered. Thank you
She did a very good job . Was very polite and professional with the children.and balloon twister was able to get through all the request quickly . The kids had a great time with event services provided . I would hire her again
We hired TwistiCity for balloon and face painting. They exceeded our expectations! We had a TON of kids and they worked for 3 hours straight from the minute they walked in until the minute they left. They were amazing with kids and their work is impressive! Several adults came up to me to comment about how great they were with the kids and the great job they did! You will not regret hiring them! I will again in the future!
Hired a Doc McStuffins character visit for a birthday party along with balloon animals and face painting. Service was professional, on time, and accompanied by excellent communication of the terms and details. Highly recommend.
Steve was a pleasure to have at our party. I asked for him to come mainly as a balloon twister but to throw a little magic in as time and balloon demand allowed. He switched back and forth between the two crafts as needed, and was entertaining throughout. Both kids and adults were impressed with what he made (Elsa, butterfly, lightsabers, bow and arrow, etc...). I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others. Additionally, I realized after hiring him privately that we have had him perform magic at my public library a few times and he has been well received by kids, parents, and staff.
MoMo was wonderful! She was more than accommodating and so thoughtful. She even made balloon light up rattles for the younger toddlers (of course parents monitored them). Birthday musthave!
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!!
These are some very talented people. They were wonderful with my twin daughters and their friends. The work is stunning. They are very professional and efficient. The balloons were perfect and inventive and the face painting was gorgeous. Everyone loved having them here for the party. I highly recommend them and can’t wait to have them back.
My son's birthday was a success thanks to the wonderful job the face painter did. I highly recommend Balloons And More Fun!
AMAZING!!!!! She is not a face painter, she is an artist. There are not many people that do the type of face painting that she does. She truly had a gift. She does some outstanding balloon art also. She quickly creates masterpieces for the kids. She also made Wonder Woman balloon candy cups for a Ladies Night event at my office. Big hit! I have used her for several of my office events. She is great with kids! I will never use anyone else!
Paul made balloon animals at a family fun festival at my sons grade school and Paul's line was the longest! The animals looked great and the kids loved them! It also helps that Paul is a people person and kept everyone entertained!
My kids loved her. The face painting was a big kick at my youngest birthday party. I would hire her again in a heart beat.
