Nick is fantastic! Once he got to the party he got right to work entertaining my guests! EVERYONE absolutely loved him! He was funny and charismatic. He easily juggled twisting balloons and entertaining kids AND adults waiting eagerly in line for a balloon animal, sword, hat... you name it he made it! I highly recommend him as a balloon twisting entertainment person! Many people at my party said they will be using him for their party! I plan to do more business with Nick in the future! Such a great addition to our party! Thanks Nick for making Bella's first birthday special, and entertaining ALL of our guest!

DawnMarie was a hit at our company's family picnic. The kids loved her work, and the adults were impressed by the quality of her art. She was face painting and making balloon art for two hours, and there was no break! The kids kept coming back for more, and DawnMarie was always cheerful and accommodating. DawnMarie was punctual, professional, and great with kids and adults alike. We will definitely contact her for future events.

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

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

Crazy Uncle Rich the Balloon Bender was on time, well prepared, easy going with the kids and adults that interacted with him, and he worked hard the entire time he was present making balloon animals non-stop. He was exactly what we were looking for to ensure and well worth every dollar spent. Thanks, Crazy Uncle Rich for making our event more entertaining for the kids.

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!

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!

Shelia and her assistant did a wonderful job entertaining three crazy kids (with a roaming dog and baby) at my son's 8th birthday party. Not only did they twist cool balloon creations, they very patiently showed the kids how to make their own. They were prompt, prepared, and delivered exactly what they'd promised. Thank you, ladies!

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!!

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!

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.
