Nick was amazing at his balloon twisting entertainment! Every child and adult had a blast watching him create tons of characters and hats and all sorts of fun things. I highly recommend Nick. I will definitely hire him for our next birthday bash. He was awesome!
The Great Boodini performed at my company's open house. He was on time, professional and the kids loved him. He also worked with a face painter we hired to make adorable balloon costumes. Highly recommended.
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!
Scott was amazing! All of my guests and toddlers are raving fans! Balloons were perfect the music and puppet show really brought joy to the kids! Scott was so patient and arrived early and made sure all of the kids had a balloon treasure to take home! He was kind and fun with the kids! Will be using him for our future events! Thanks again so much! Creating memories and joy for kids--you are magic! Thank you!
amazing work, whipped a chaotic group of x7 adults into super scarey classic skeletons. Saved us as our halloween costume was seriously weak until make up was complete.
Sahara's face painting was a big hit at my daughter's fifth birthday party. The theme was mermaids/under the sea. Susan did an absolutely amazing job on the children's faces. She made sure that all of the children had their faces painted. I was amazed with the detail of the face painting and her patience with the children. She did an awesome job.
I entered a halloween costume contest as a spider witch... i needed a face painting with spiders. The eyes and lips came out awesome. So neat and professional. Definitely will come again 😊
The kids absolutely loved the clown. She entertained kids from 6 months to 6 years old, they had a blast.
Rich was awesome at my son's first birthday party! He did not stop making balloon characters the whole time he was there-an hour and a half! His balloon creations are very impressive and it seems like he likes the challenge of different requests of characters. Highly recommended :)
Jane was fantastic. The kids and the adults loved her. She made the best ballon characters including a skateboarder on his board, super cool and fun!! I would use her again and recommend her to anyone!!!
We were celebrating my son’s first birthday party which was Sesame Street themed. We asked for the Elmo costumed character and he was perfect! They arrived on time and Elmo was very lively and great with the kids! Our son absolutely loved him!!! Overall a really great experience and we will definitely be using Funtime Services in the future!
Outstanding indeed! Wina arrived early, set up, and the kids just kept lining up! I had to keep her an extra hour, a possibility we anticipated ahead of time, so that was fine with her. Her work is spectacular! I had a picnic full of very happy kiddies and parents! Wina was great with the little ones and very engaging with the older kids. 5 stars and more! One of the parents told me afterward that her son wanted a video game character that Wina wasn't familiar with, so the mom brought it up on google and, not only did Wina create it perfectly, but made it look 3D! No worries with this class act! Book her today! Thanks Wina!
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. ?
Lisa was amazing, she was punctual, very polite, & great makeup artist. She help make my son's first birthday very special; my guests enjoyed her especially the kids! I definitely recommend her & would have her back! Sincerely Delilah and birthday boy Gabriel Moreno. 3.22.14 my son party was at the purple monkey playroom.
Thank you Circus Boy for making our family party such a great success! Prompt, entertaining and kept everyone laughing! He makes some awesome balloon characters as well. Very interactive with our guests from age 4-67. I highly recommend him to anyone!
