Ed was fantastic. He arrived early, set up quickly and entertained children as they were arriving. He captivated both the children and adults for the full 90 minutes and we had great comments from other parents about how good he was. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ed and may even use him again in the future. Fantastic, thank you!

Wow - What a party! Booked Mr Potato for my sons 5th Birthday and he was brilliant. Balloon modelling, circus skills, magic, comedy, disco, Mr Potato did it all. He kept the children and parents entertained for 2 hours. I would highly recommend.

Absolutely brilliant, punctual, happy to do all the random requests and fantastic artistry too! It lasted until it was intentionally removed and was so light you could forget you were wearing it. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Children’s Entertainment

package would include a disco with lights and a bubble machine, a circus show, interactive circus skills, balloon modelling, a magic show and party games. I would arrive thirty minutes early to get setup, so that when your guests arrive the music is playing. I make balloon animals, swords etc for the children as they arrive this keeps them occupied while everyone else arrives. Once all the guests are there I perform the circus show, this includes juggling, plate spinning etc, I make the show as funny as possible as this helps break the ice with any shy or timid children. While I perform the show I also demonstrate all circus toys so that once the show is over it becomes interactive the children and parents can join in and play, this makes for great party photos. After the interactive section the children have their food, while I make balloons for any children I have missed plus a special balloon for the birthday person. After we have sung the birthday song I perform a magic show, then the last thirty minutes of the entertainment is a disco with party games.
