Services

So many ways to have fun...with an Edmonton balloon artist!

Professionally tailored

I can twist whatever a child requests while having fun with them and keeping them entertained as my magic balloon-twisting fingers move at lightening speed. Most of these creations are in the 3 to 8 balloon range, which makes it great entertainment for small and large numbered events. I also incorporate flashing led lights into the creations as well (please mention at the time of booking). This service works well at events that have a line-up already, keeping your customers entertained as they wait. Ask me about customizing my services for your event. Edmonton balloon artist.

Please contact Russ for more information.

You can choose any of the animal creations that I make and have them delivered or picked up at your convenience. This service is great for time-restricted events, birthday party loot bags, short notice events, and children’s carnivals. This is also a great add-on to any other of my services that I offer. Especially those parties you don’t want late arrivals to miss out on. It’s great to have some pre-mades on hand in case of any breakage. You will be able to wipe those tears away and bring those big smiles back. Some restrictions do apply. Edmonton balloon artist

I can stroll through your event, entertaining and impressing your guests with out-of-this-world balloon sculptures. I will pick areas of your event with families or pockets of people gathering and will perform my balloon magic skills for them, leaving them with a cartoon character or that special-requested creation made for them right before their eyes. I take a bow and continue moving into the crowd to another area of your event to entertain. I am skilled differently than the normal balloon twister and my creations show it in all my work. Customize your event with a special sculpture your guests can take home and always remember. Edmonton balloon artist.

I will come to your house or location of the party and create balloon animals, cartoon characters, hats, for all of you and your guests. Birthday Fun Package 1 is for up to 12 children and is 1 hour long. This gives all the children a 4-8 Balloon creation they can take home with them as a memento of your child’s special day. The birthday person receives a special one-of-a-kind creation made right in front of all your guests’ eyes. Birthday Fun Package 2 is the same as number one but I will use glow sticks in all my balloon creations. This brings a new element of fun to the balloons. This package is good with older children. For more children than 12 with any of the birthday fun packages there will be an additional charge applied. Edmonton balloon artist.

Balloon Safety

Having fun while practicing balloon safety

Latex balloons are an inexpensive way to decorate and to celebrate any festive occasion. With all the colours that latex balloons come in, children are now drawn to them like magnets. As many of you parents already know balloons are a large part of children’s celebrations, especially birthday parties. When receiving a twisted balloon sculpture it can be a fun and unforgettable occasion, however, they can also be a choking hazard for children under 3 years of age.

Balloons are made like candles. A piece of stainless steel is shaped into a long pencil like rod, which is called a form. The form is dipped into liquid latex and pulled back up and set to dry. This procedure is done 7 times to create the thickness of the balloon that can be twisted into all kinds of different sculptures. Most of the balloons you can get from the regular dollar store or department store are only dipped in liquid latex 3 times. This makes them a lot thinner.

The balloons used for sculpturing are dipped in liquid latex 7 times and are the most dangerous of the varied types of balloons because of their thickness. Due to the thickness of this type of balloon, it has one of the biggest choking hazards to all little children under 3 years of age. Sculpturing balloons are so thick that if an animal or a young child gets a piece of the balloon stuck in there throat it may not come out. Even with someone helping them to try to get it out they may require an emergency medical procedure to get the balloon and/or particle out of there throat.

One of our biggest suggestions, in this area involving balloon safety, is common sense. However, common sense doesn’t always come naturally to children and the majority of balloon safety information is given with children in mind. In any case, it is sensible to heed this advice regardless of age.

Brightly coloured latex balloons attract the attention of a curious child. Young children may suck or bite into a balloon, and fragments of a popped balloon may end up in a child’s mouth and be inhaled or swallowed. A balloon fragment could adhere to and/or cover the child’s airway, blocking the breathing passage and causing suffocation. Because latex balloon fragments are sticky, they are often difficult to dislodge, even using the Heimlich maneuver will not be of any help.

Thank you for taking the time to inform your self and protecting your family.
