We are very happy that we found Grampy's Magic at this website. He was great with the performance and price. Besides magic show he also did balloons for all the kids. I would recommend him to the parents who look for great entertainment for their kids birthday party.

Verified review

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!

We had Beth attend our daughters first birthday party. There were about 15-20 kids and each were able to go up and have multiple paintings done. She was friendly and did an outstanding job as far as the quality of work and artistic abilities. The kids faces looked outstanding. Beth met all of my expectations and the services that she outlined (timing/tables/look books,etc) were all met to a T. I cant wait to use her again! I would highly recommend her.

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.

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!!

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!

Sharon worked our elementary school's Ice Cream Social (250+ kids attended) and she was a huge hit! Her designs were fun, creative and great for all ages. Best of all, she stayed 40 mins later than our contracted time, so every kid in line was painted. She arrived early & stayed late. A pleasure to work with! We would highly recommend and use her again.

My family and I attended a Chai Lifeline Purim party on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, where Tamar from Tamariel paints was face painting the kids...as usual, Tamar did an amazing job, not only face painting, but making ALL my kids, special needs kids included, feel like a million bucks. She is wonderful, patient, and skilled. She gives each child her undivided attention. We have been to many functions where Tamar has worked, and my children look forward to getting face painted by her. It is the highlight of every party, and when Tamar is not there, they are very disappointed. I would recommend Tamar and Tamariel paints to anyone looking for a great face painting experience.

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!!
