How much does it cost?
I offer lots of different entertainment packages for children’s b-day parties. For complete details, including pricing, simply fill out the birthday instant quote form on the kids parties dropdown menu.
How much space do you need?
Not much at all. For my equipment and props I need about a 6 feet ‘ by 6 feet area. Usually, your living room is a perfect place for this. Other than that, an area right in front of my performing area for the children to sit and enjoy the show is all that is needed.
Do you need a table?
No, I bring my own case that folds up into a table.
Can you perform the show outdoors?
Yes I can providing the weather is okay. If the wind is blowing, that can be too much as some of my props are very light and will blow away. It’s always safer to have it indoors plus there will be less distractions.
Can we serve the kids food, snacks, and beverages during your show?
Well, it’s your party so you can do whatever you’d like… however, I do recommend serving treats & drinks before or after the show. It’s a HUGE distraction for the kids. Not only eating the snack but then the serving of it and cleaning up that takes place. At this age, they need the least amount of distractions as possible. So I HIGHLY recommend NOT serving goodies during the performance (also because it’s a show based on audience interaction and participation… I need their hands to be free…besides, it could turn messy).
When should I serve food and cake?
The best time to serve food and cake, is after the magic show or game section of the party. Especially if cake is served before the magic show, it can make it more difficult for kids to stay focused on the magic show.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes I require a small deposit to secure your time and date. You don’t pay the balance until the day of your child’s party. I accept cash, cheques, PayPal, and all major credit cards. Check out the online payment center
for more info.
Is the show clean and age appropriate?
Yes! I take pride in that my show is specifically geared towards children ages 4-8. Most magicians don’t have an age specific show. I specialize in entertaining children with clean and fun magic.
When’s a good time to have you begin your show?
A good general rule of thumb is to have my magic show begin at the last 45 minutes of the party. This prevents distractions from late arriving guests. Depending on which package you go with, the magic show lasts anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes.
I’m celebrating more than one child’s birthday, can you still entertain at our party?
Yes! I will have all of the b-day children be the stars of the show. Everything else is the same except we have a few more lucky participants!
Do you know of any sources for birthday party goodies like plates, napkins, hats, etc.?
Yes! There is a great place called ebay you might have heard of it. Seriously you can find almost anything you might need on eBay and if you can’t find it on ebay try Amazon.
*Important: Can we hire you to entertain our children in one room while all of the adults hang out in another room?
Due to liability issues, I do require that all of the children be supervised at all times by at least one responsible adult (besides me). I simply can’t be held responsible for supervising them. This is to protect you, the children and myself.
Can we invite young infants and babies to the party?
Since it’s your party, you may do whatever you’d like. However, I recommend the parents sitting with them and if they start crying or running about I need the parent to take the little ones to the back to avoid distracting the other kids from the show.
Can we give the Magic Wand Kits to children under the age of 3?
I can’t control what happens after I leave the party but please don’t give the magic wand kits to children under the age of the 3. There are small parts on the wand that can be removed it’s better to be safe than sorry.
