Gregg is great at engaging with kids and adults! His balloon twisting is a big hit at our events!
Great all around. On time, very friendly, kids loved!
Gregg was perfect for our senior circus party event. He spent one one-on-one time with the seniors and created awesome balloon art for each one. He was professional and polite and everyone enjoyed his unique talent. I would definitely recommend him for any event or any age.
We had hired our balloon artist for a back to school party at our swim school facility, and he was fantastic! He made all sorts of elaborate balloon art like wands, butterfly wings, crowns, swords, and more. He was quick and made every child who came up to the table smile. We are definitely interested in having him again for future events at our pool!
He showed up on time, was able to accommodate us last minute, was very flexible, and was able to make balloons from the very young to the adults.
Booked Fun Balloon Twisting Entertainment for a community party at Chick-fil-A. They were a wonderful business & a pleasure to have in our restaurant. They arrived early, remained professional, and was great with the children. The balloon art was adorable and impressive. Gregg has a true talent! I would definitely love to book again for future events.
We really enjoyed the service received from this entertainer. He was on time, had a great smile on his face for the entire party, was very accommodating and patient with the kids, and had great balloon figures made. The kids had a lot of fun and enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended.
Gregg showed up on time and got started right away. The kids loved all his creations! Would definitely recommend him!
It is a second time we order Fun Balloon twisting to entertain our bd party, and we as happy as can be. Always on time, always most interesting balloons shapes. Kids were happy.
Gregg was easygoing and friendly to all the kids. He communicated well before the event, arrived on time, and made all the kids at the party multiple balloon animals. When there was a lull in the line he made more balloons to have ready when the kids came back for more. He filled the hour with fun and the kids loved it!
He just made our event more fun. Don’t think, just get him for your event. You will not regret! Thanks for making our night memorable.
He was very professional, and the kids loved him. He made any balloon that they asked for!
We hosted a huge Santa's Wonderland event and Gregg did an AMAZING JOB! We had over 500 children throughout the 4-hour event and all went away delighted with their balloon creations. No hesitation in HIGHLY RECOMMENDING! And we'll have Gregg for future events too!
We had Gregg come for my daughter's fourth birthday party. He was on time, worked non-stop for the full hour pumping out great balloon creations. The kids loved it! Would use again.
Greg is a great guy, awesome communication during the planning stage of our party. He was on time and did lots of great balloon creation for the kids. Will definitely hire him again.
Gregg was easy to work with, showed up on time and the kids and families loved him. Definitely will use Greg again for future events and highly recommend him to anyone else.
The kids loves Gregg! He was a hit. He is so talented. We really enjoyed all the amazing balloons he made. He’s very patient and listened to every child’s request. Showed up 10 minutes early. Definitely recommend 10/10. Will be hiring for future events!
Greg did an amazing job engaging with kids of all ages, and kids loved the balloon creations!
Excellent balloon artist. Everyone at our event loved the balloons and had a wonderful time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking! I would definitely hire again.
We have used many different Balloon Twisters at our Parish picnic but Fun Balloon Twisting was by far teh best. Children walked away amazed with all kinds of animals and really tall swords. It was a great event made better by Fun Balloon Twisting.
Gregg was patient with the never ending line of kids requesting more and more balloon creations :)
Gregg was great and all the kids loved his balloon creations and glitter tatoos. He was one time, communication before the event was great and he let us know what he would need when he arrived. He was great with the kids requests and made everything from animals and Wands to hats.
Gregg did a great job engaging with guests of all ages at our event! Everyone enjoyed the balloon creations and his friendly attitude.
He is responsive, punctual, and professional. I will be booking him again for future events.
We had 20+ kids for the party,ages 2 -15 and all of them were very happy. Some kids went for the balloons,some went for the tattoos and some got both. Gregg was very friendly with the kids and managed them well.
We didn’t have many small kids at the party but Gregg also did glitter tattoos and the older kids, even some of the adults, did the tattoos. Everyone commented on how nice Gregg was too. We have a niece with Down’s Syndrome and he was very patient and understanding with her.
Would definitely hire him again for a party. He was prompt, polite, talented and excellent with the children (4-5 year olds) when they were running up asking for balloons!! I wish I had booked him for a longer duration as the kids loved it so much.
Heard great things from our residents about his skills at, not just ballooning, but also managing a crowd. Thanks for making the day special!
We had Fun Balloon Twisting Entertainment ordered for our birthday party, and I cant' be more happy with the service. Gregg was very responsive to messages, arrived right on time and the fun begun for all guests. He was able to make any requested shape of the animals, swords, dinosaurs, even crab hats. Kids had a blast, definite highlight of the party. I highly recommend him to any event or party.
The kids loved his balloon creations at the end of school party. He was great to work with.
Gregg was great! Communicative, punctual and super nice. Great with kids and talented. He made any balloon requested and had done rad tattoos. Balloons were good quality, didn’t easily pop or lose air. Would hire him, again.
We hired Greg for our daughters first birthday and he did a phenomenal job. He was energetic, fun and patient with the children. Some kids were shy in the beginning but Greg did a great job involving the children and giving them options to choose from. I would highly recommend Greg for your events. Hands Down I would hire him again for any of my future events!
He did a great job.
Gregg was absolutely perfect for our event. I would highly recommend hiring him for your next event! So talented and kind and punctual, and willing to go with the flow :) Thank you so much!
Greg was fantastic at my son's birthday party. All of the kids loved him. He's very fast which allowed all of the kids to receive multiple balloons. We will definitely book him again.
Greg was a perfect addition to our family birthday party. Kids and adults loved his balloon creations. He was very easy to work with, timely, and a great communicator leading up to the event. We would definitely use him again.
We are so happy Greg was our source of entertainment for our baptism banquet party.
Kids ages 1-17 years old had fun with the alien balloons, puppies and swords. The glitter tattoos were a hit as well. We will request Greg for our future events.
Absolutely fantastic! He made tons of balloons of all shapes and sizes and was great with the kids :-)
Greg was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Kids were so happy with their balloons. He’s very nice and even took some wonderful photos of the kids and me!
We will definitely hire again!
The kids enjoyed the balloon twisting creations and had a great time!
Totally made the party!!!
Greg was great with the kids and made wonderful creations.
We really enjoyed Gregg's work! The guests were slow to arrive, and he didn't mind a zillion requests from the same few kids at the outset. I noticed that he had made some balloon decorations when things were slow. He made some pretty elaborate designs too. If a kid asked for a monkey, he made him a palm tree to go with it. Outstanding!
Very friendly, did a great job with all our guest requests.
The kids absolutely loved him! Can't say enough great things! Will definitely book again!
Gregg was great to work with. He was responsive, on time, and all of the kids at the party loved the balloons that he made. Highly recommended!
Fun Balloon showed up well in advance of our event to set up and they were very professional. Loved the final product of the glitter tattoos. Will definitely use them again.
Gregg was fabulous with the kids and entertained them thoroughly. I booked him for the younger kids at the party but the older kids (13-18) enjoyed him even more!
Greg arrived promptly and was ready to start. He worked in and around our small group, quietly creating fun magic. He was agreeable and had a lovely disposition. As this was a bar crowd for a 40th birthday, he didn't feel the need to 'be the show' or interrupt conversations. He just made magic and astounded and delighted anyone who watched. Great job!
Gregg was great to work with from beginning to end. He was responsive, on time and the kids loved all the awesome balloons he made. Giraffe, hats, motorcycle, reindeer, flowers, snails, candy cane and many other things! We booked him for an hour and that was plenty of time for 15 kids to get at least 2 balloons made. Would definitely recommend him! Thanks Gregg
It was well worth it. The kids had a blast. Maybe it was just me, but I would of liked more time with the balloons than the tattoos, but that was a miscommunication on my part.
