Another Happy Mom Review

Always a delight when you learn the birthday mom has left a review.
“Worth every penny…” — Google, you can share these any time you like!
After a birthday party magic show this past weekend the birthday girl’s magical mom kindly did just that. It’s now part of my Google business listing but sharing here:

We had Owen join us for my daughters 10th birthday party.
He was amazing! The kids and adults had a blast. He was entertaining and patient, as some of the kids were late to the party and he accommodated. Worth every penny, the laughter and joy was priceless. Thank you for helping make special memories!

Incidentally, this birthday party & magic show was held in the Churchill Park Clubhouse. It’s a lovely city owned rental space in the west end. You can find out more about this and other city owned recreation facility locations here.

Birthday Candle Tip

New candles take longer to light the first time. If you’re using fresh birthday candles take a moment and light them before your party starts. It’ll burn off the excess fuzz/residue/wax on the wick. Only takes a few seconds to do this. Then extinguish and stick ’em in your cake.

Having been ‘primed’ the candles will light more quickly the second time around. No excess fuzz/residue/wax will drop onto your cake either. When the pressure is on with excited birthday party kids at your kitchen table pounding their forks you’ll appreciate those seconds you saved.

Fond Memories

The other night I received this lovely message through my website contact form:

“This is just a hello. I was tidying and came across your business card from 1995 (of course no website or email address) when you entertained our 6 year old daughter and her friends. We have a picture of her as a rabbit coming out of a hat and a slightly younger you holding the image.
Fond memories, thank you”

These random hellos are always a treat. I’ve had them at the mall or in restaurants but this one, from about 27 years ago, takes the time-travel gold medal! Performers often like to say their show will create memories that will last a lifetime. I don’t go in for such clich├ęs but I’m always delighted to have helped a tiny bit.

Sent a quick reply back and next day J.V., the birthday kid’s dad, sent a photo. Still have that tie tucked away somewhere but the coat is looooong gone!

Still offer this fun photo opportunity at parties!

Happy Mom!

I managed to present a live birthday show, with proper social distancing, days before the latest lockdown began. Felt good to be in front of a live bunch of kids, challenges notwithstanding. Got this lovely email from mom shortly afterwards. A real ego boost and then, kindly, she added it to my Google reviews too. Sweet!

Thank you for being so reliable and professional, the kids had so much fun and they will have amazing memories. Also thank you for bearing the cold so bravely, I wish we did not have all the guidelines according to the indoor/outdoor gathering, it would have been less challenging. I’ll highly recommend you!


All the best,

Virtual Magic… again!

Well, just when you thought it was safe to leave the bunker…!

We’re back in a lock down for a few weeks anyways.

Thanks omicron… not!

Shows via Zoom for kids birthdays and other events. Click on the contact link and drop me a note. Or, drop a dime and call. (If you get that ‘dime’ reference you probably don’t have kids the right age for my services…!) We’ll figure something out.
