Party Ideas For Children. Make your
Child's Party Extra Special.
Q- What age groups
are best suited for your birthday party show?
This is a great question! Believe it or not I get phone calls
from parents of 1-2 year-old children looking for a magician to
entertain a roomful of 1-2-year old kids. I don't care how smart
or advanced your 2-year old children are they simply are not ready
for the complexity of a birthday party magic show. Typically their attention
span is very short and I do not recommend my show for this age
group. Once kids approach the 3-4 year range they are more capable
to enjoy the birthday party show. For this age group I do recommend that the
parents accompany the child during the birthday party show and interact with
them. This enhances the overall birthday party experience for them and prevents
them from losing focus on the show. Once kids get to the 11-12
year range they enter the "Too Cool" stage. At this
point they begin to feel more self conscious about being associated
with "babyish" birthday party entertainment. It is for this reason
that I have a special birthday party show for pre-teens and teens consisting
of more sophisticated magical effects. Click
here for information on the various types of magic shows offered
by the Magical Songwriter. It is for this reason that I have incorporated
different birthday party programs for different aged kids.
you tailor your show to meet the needs of each individual party?
Definitely. After the first few minutes of each birthday party I get a sense of what the kids want. Sometimes
it's magic. Sometimes it's music. Most times it's a combination of the 2. This is why it's important
to have a variety of different types of entertainment available so that I can tailor my performance
to suit any birthday party audience and provide the most appropriate form of birthday party entertainment.
do you feel is the best "goody bag" give away?
Personally I don't reccommend the typical candy birthday party "goody bag". Think
about it. First, the kids eat some unhealthy food such as
pizza, fried chicken, or hamburgers and hot dogs followed by cake
and/or ice cream. Now to top it all off they are being sent home
with a bagful of candy. This is why I recommend that you send
the child home with something useful such as a craft project,
magic trick or a copy of my CD. This
is something that they will continue to use over a period of time.
I offer my CD at a discounted birthday party rate of $5 each.
do the younger kids like the most about your show?
A- Definitely the
Magic Talking Drawing Board. When I draw a face on an ordinary white wipe-off board and that face
moves and talks this "blows kids away". Click here for a live video of the magic talking drawing board. I also think they like the fact that I mix it up with different
types of birthday party entertainment. Between the music, magic and ventriloquism there is a lot of variety and
kids never get bored. Another thing they love to do is come up and sing my songs using real microphones.
They feel like they are a part of the show.
do you do for the older kids and what do they like best?
A- Most birthday party magicians do not know how to cater to older kids. They
appreciate the fact that with my birthday parties they get treated as adults. I do a lot of card tricks and mind reading effects
and effects that you definitely do not see at kids birthday parties. I think they appreciate that
and I immediately bond with them.
