Very friendly. There were some kids who showed up to our party late, and she stayed to make sure each kid got something if they wanted something. There was a board for face painting with all the select characters I had given her that were interests of all of the kids at my party. And although several of the twisted balloons popped, she made as many new ones as she could for each child.
Charmaine Did a great job.... She painted all the characters... And all the kids are happy to get face painted and one character balloons. This is my first time booking face painting and she did a awesome job thanks a lot Charmaine
Live Balloons Entertainment helped me create the perfect atmosphere for my daughter's Disney themed birthday party! From the life size balloons for decoration to the individually-crafted characters for each party guest, the service was spot-on to my daughter's theme. What a great deal for memories my daughter will never forget! I will be sure to recommend to my friends!
Absolute 10. Extraordinarily talented. Remarkably professional & creative. By far, made my best Halloween costume to date.
After much shopping, I settled upon Joyful Faces and I must say that I am so very pleased with the results. She was very easy to work with prior to the event. She and the other professional arrived on time. They were prepared and needed minimal help from me for set up. The work performed was excellent and significantly well received by the children at our Halloween Costume Parade Kid's Event. I was thrilled with the work performed and will certainly use Joyce and her company for future kid's endeavors! Hat off on a job well done and thank you for contributing to a wonderful event for the children in our neighborhoods!
Maria helped us with a balloon twisting and costume character. The balloon twisting show was a run away hit! The kids were super thrilled with types of things Maria made with balloons -- sword, crown, butterfly and so on.. I would recommend balloon twisting event by Maria.

We had Jack come to our child's birthday party - he is part of a husband/wife duo of balloon sculptor/face painter. INCREDIBLE!!!! Jack can make ANYTHING!!! From popular Disney characters to hats and corsages, he is just amazing with his hands. As talented as he is, he is also funny! He banters back and forth with the kids and makes everyone happy!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Melanie is an amazing and creative Face painter! We hired Melanie for our housewarming party to entertain kids and for Face painting. We had about 18 kids in age ranging from 1 to 11 yo. All kids absolutely loved Melanie! She was engaging, fun and entertaining! Kids all received beautiful, creative and unique face and hands painting to their specific liking or favorite characters. Melanie also uses sensitive skin and non-toxic high quality painting products so we knew it was safe for all our guests! We highly recommend Face Painting by Mel!
It was great pleasure working with Jade. not only she excels in what she does but she is fun to be around. Beautiful makeup and adherence to the concept. I would definitely recommend Jade for Character-Prosthetic makeup, Beauty makeup and High fashion makeup.
Show up on time. The Costume was fantastic along with a great performance which flowed perfectly with the kids. It was a hit!! Totally recommend them. I know we will have them in the future again. Specially now that I know they have over 60 different characters. Thank you so much for making this family so happy
For the past 10 years or so, we’ve had the need for a Santa for 2 holiday events - at childcare center’s holiday party as well as our Christmas Eve open house. We’ve had some really bad experiences over the years (who knew Santas could be creepy). We lucked out 3 years ago when we found a real gem who really invested in making the kids happy, not just the adults. This year, though, he disappeared so we were really concerned that we wouldn’t be able to find another convincing Santa that would be able to engage with groups of curious kids and their parents. We used Thumbtack to put out our request in November and Keith got right back to us. Negotiations were plain and simple. Keith quoted us a fair price on the date we needed. We were lucky since it always so late in the season. Santa arrived on time m, ready to go. My wife likes to control the action at her childcare center and Santa didn’t skip a beat - he followed the action and was never surprised or flustered when kids would ask crazy questions. Utterly professional. This Santa won’t spoil kids dreams. He looks the part - you couldn’t see stubble, eyebrows or any other hair that would give Santa away. We’ve clearly found our new Santa provider and we are considering the other entertainment services and characters that they provide. From on discerning parent and caregiver to another — highly recommended.
I've seen them at every Neshaminy mall show... The performers always stay in-character, the costumes are beautiful, they make an effort to involve both girls and boys in the fun... Very professional, I highly recommend!
Doc Swan was delightful, funny and perfect for our function, on time, within character and extremely polite He performed at our residence, entertained the children and adults and then was gracious enough to pose for pictures with everyone. I highly recommend Doc Swan and will continue to utilize his services in the future
