If you are looking for a clown that is great with kids, kind, cheerful, and punctual DO NOT HIRE THIS CLOWN. I hired this lady for my nephew?s 2nd birthday party and she was awful. First, she was over 40 minutes late and I had to call her to find out where she was, she didn't call me. (This should have been a sign.) Claimed that I didn't give her directions, unfortunately she doesn't know how to use the internet to get directions. Had she informed me that she lacked this skill and needed directions I would have assisted. Secondly, she was very rude with the children. She began by making balloons but all she would do was swords for the boys and doggies for the girls, oh and one flower. Gave them only to the small children (under 5) and told the bigger kids that they don't want any, ""right kids?"" Who would take one with that comment. Also, she repeatedly told them if you pop the balloon that's all you get. Her magic tricks were terrible. Her equipment was old, run down, and falling apart. She was not able to keep the children engaged. Several parents complained to me about her rudeness, when I addressed her about it she denied it and acted surprised that I called her on it. When it came to face painting, again she told the children she had to do something quick as she had not time. Now, I don?t' know if she had a party after but if that was the case I would have preferred not to have her at all. Save your money and go somewhere else. I've hired other clowns that were wonderful with the children, weren't pressed for time as they dedicated all their attention to the birthday child and kept the children engaged. This was not the case with lady. She should retire as her patience with children is low. Please be aware that she is also under Partie Clown and Ella Bella Party Clown and she post regularly on craigslist. There are many other clowns and face painters who can provide you with great service, unfortunately this lady is not one of them.
