Everyone loves balloons! We use only the best twisting balloons available. We use 100%latex balloons in our sculptures and most of our bouquets. Latex balloons are 100% biodegradable and break down at the same rate as an oak leaf. Latex alternatives are available upon request, but we usually need a fair bit of notice to get the supplies.

Balloon Twisting $150.00 per hour

We take great pride in our ability to make almost anything out of balloons (no porcupines, and no guns). Our fairies are more than capable of adapting to any size group whether it's making quick creations for larger groups, intricate designs for smaller ones, line work at a trade show, or anywhere in between. So give us a call and we will figure out what works best for you.

If you have ever wanted to try your hand at balloon twisting this is a great way to start. You can learn some basic balloon twisting, as well as safety, sizes, and brands, while you explore this interesting art form. Take home a full starter kit as well as your creations to wow family and friends with your new found talent. Workshops are best suited to groups of 6-12 participants, ages 8 to 88, all materials are provided. A great idea for a party!

Our large variety of sparkling tattoo designs add fun and colour to all celebrations from birthday parties to pool parties, to corporate events. We have over a hundred designs to choose from, many of which are exclusive, but we can limit our selection to suit your theme, and/or shorten the decision making process. Boys love our spiders, flaming skulls and superhero designs! We also offer lots of fairy and princess designs for those girls who don't want a dragon tattoo.

How do they work?

Glitter Tattoos are a temporary tattoo that will usually last from 3 to 7 days, but can easily be removed with an oil based product or rubbing alcohol. A single use stencil is placed on the skin, a special FDA approved medical grade latex free adhesive is applied, followed by your choice of cosmetic glitter. When dry, the stencil is removed, leaving a fun and unique design that won't come off while eating cake and ice cream.

Glitter Tattoo Artist $125.00 per hour

Glitter tattoos are great fun for people of all ages and can be applied in a variety of spots (we do not recommend the face). Glitter art is a great option for kids who feel too old for face painting or when you plan on running through the sprinkler.

We have two face painting options. We have the more traditional brush and sponge system, as well as an airbrush system that provides both a water soluble, "just for the party" option, and a temporary tattoo option. Generally for smaller groups the traditional option is more cost effective, and for larger events such as trade shows airbrushing is often the way to go. Events are generally suited for one or the other so please give us a call so that we can figure which is better suited to your event.

Traditional Face paint$125.00 per hour

Face paint can be lots of fun, especially for those jungle themed parties where all the children want to be roaring lions, growling tigers, howling wolves, and ferocious dinosaurs. The only face paints we use are Snazaroo. Snazaroo face paints are the only face paints with a child toy safety rating. And that means that all the colours (including red, and black) are safe around the eyes. Snazaroo face paints are all water-based, but may stain fabric.

Airbrush Face Paint$125.00 per hour

Just like the tradition face paints we use, these are water based and come off faces with soap and water, but may stain fabric. We use Graftobian makeup which is a liquid cosmetic designed specifically for airbrushing. Air Brushing is perfect for larger crowds. We generally use stencils when airbrushing and can provide a variety of designs for people to choose from.

Airbrushing Temp Tattoos$125.00 per hour

Unlike the water based makeup we use for face painting, for temporary tattoos we use Duratatâ„¢ airbrush tattoo ink which is the safest, and longest lasting ink on the market. Generally temporary tattoos are more popular for those who feel they have out grown face paint. These temporary tattoos last up to 10 days. For the air brush tattoo designs we have a variety of stencils that are geared toward a more mature crowd.

We love stories: funny ones, cute ones, educational ones, and preferably blends of all three. Our stories can incorporate magic tricks, puppets, and balloons. For smaller spaces that are not suited for our puppet stage, our 5' dragon puppet, Alexander is still more than happy to make an appearance. We are always happy to adapt the presentation to the size of the audience.

Balloon StoriesStarting at $150.00 per hour

We have a selection of stories, both original and a few by beloved authors (who have given us permission) that allow us to captivate audiences of various sizes. Whether it is a birthday party' or a fundraiser at a library, balloons can be a great way to animate characters in a story. The balloon sculptures used in the story can then be kept by the children!

Magical Stories$150.00 per Show

We also have a story that incorporates some basic magic tricks, such as turning scarves into candy. This story, about learning good manners, is best suited to 3 to 7 years old. In this story, with groups of 20 children or less, the children all get a chance to participate by helping the tricks along using good manners.

Puppet ShowsCall for a Quote

For larger groups we have a puppet theater and sound equipment. These shows are best suited to a large indoor space and can be up to 45 minutes long. We have a selection on stories requiring either one or two puppeteers. The theme and duration of the stories vary. Please contact us for more details regarding our selection.

For smaller groups, we have a few stories that do not require a theater. These are interactive stories where we bring enough puppets that each child get the opportunity to participate in the story.
