Everyone has birthdays and magicians are often called upon to work their magic spells for that special birthday such as a 21st birthday, or maybe a special wedding anniversary.
Birthday parties for children usually start from when they are 1 year old to when they are about 8 or 9. The parties for the very little ones up to 3 years old are really parties for parents because they just can't wait until their child gets big enough for a mega party. So they prop him or her up and say: "Watch the magician." And with a glazed over expression they promptly fall asleep or cries. There aren't many of these kids birthday parties of course but every magician gets one now and then.
Most of the phone calls for a kids birthday party type show will be for ages 3 to 7. When the child is 9 or 10, and older, they usually want something a bit more sophisticated. Obviously for young children the family may have never had a magician before, but "now that the child is old enough to appreciate it" they are ready to hire a magician for the birthday boy or girl.
So a magician or a children's entertainer for the parents' son or daughter will be a new thing to many. Now most parents will be wondering just what a magician can bring to their child's birthday that they can't supply themselves and that is the experience and knowledge of knowing what works and what doesn't. Also if the entertainer is going to do the party games too then there is the problem of prizes and giveaways. How many should I buy and what to do with the leftovers?. This is no problem for the kids entertainer as he will always have enough with him as he is using them all the time.
A good children's entertainer will also supply the party music along with a few disco lights and maybe the option of a bubble machine which always delights the young and also the not so young. Why have the bother of setting everything up from the entertainment and games when you can easily and at a very reasonable cost hire someone to do the job for you.
So for that special occasion such as your child's birthday, make it extra special and ensure that nothing will go wrong and hire a kids entertainer so that you can have a stress free time to enjoy the party and only have to worry about the food.
