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

Susan was fantastic. Her face painting work was absolutely beautiful. I've never seen better. We had her do face painting for our daughter's seventh birthday party that had an animal theme. Each of the 14 kids wanted a full face painting. She took time for each of the children and made each one unique. Even though it took her linger than she had anticipated, with the number of kids and the full face painting they wanted, she took time for each and stuck to her original quote. I highly recommend Susan.

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!

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.

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!!

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...

We had Wina for our daughter's fourth birthday and there were about 20 kids. They absolutely loved the face painting! As an adult I can see how much detail went in each painting and how vivid each design is. Lots parents came told me they loved the face painting. Wina also twisted simple balloons like flowers and swords for a little extra fee. Overall great service.

We hired Lindsey to do facepainting at our company picnic which was held at a park. We were expecting 300-500 people so we knew we would have lots of kids! Lindsey was nice enough to bring along a friend to help. They arrived early to set up and started facepainting for all of the little cuties that started to line up! They were great with kids! Not only did the kids love the art work on their faces, the parents were extremely happy with how nice they were to their kids! Everything went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with her service! She is on the top of our list to contact again in the future for not only facepainting but other services she offers. I most definitely recommend her! Thanks for everything! Genesis

Everything about my experience working with InnoKreative Arts was awesome! Kristyn was so sweet for the start and responded so quick to all my questions about her services. We touched base a couple of times before the party as well. Her work is so worth what she charges and it's a great deal for such awesome work!!! We didn't get to speak a lot during my son's 2nd birthday party today but from what I saw she was great with all the kids and adults and so patient with everyone to get all their requests done. I would definitely book her again in the future!

We hired Val for my daughters 1st birthday party. She's just wonderful and we love her work so much. In the past I regret hirring other lower-priced face painters who didn't know how to paint well and worst of all they do not know how to interact with the kids. For me, it's very important to keep in mind how a face painter relates to the children. She's friendly, funny, clever, professional to work with, fast and incredibly talented. We love our experience with her and everyone else at the party did too. She's amazing and we love her very much. ?
