Why should we hire you?
We’re glad you asked! Why indeed? We’re a collective made up of professional performers, artists, and child entertainment specialists. Meaning you get what you pay for. Our founder, Wendi has been performing in the Entertainment Industry for 10+ years, has a BA in Theatre, and earned her secondary post-degree certification in Physical Comedy and Puppetry from the acclaimed San Francisco Clown Conservatory. In addition to being award-winning performers and Family Entertainment Professionals, we also just really, really like kids.
What makes you different from other Entertainment Companies?
Do you offer Princess Parties?
We do. After all, who doesn’t want to be a Princess, or better yet a Queen!?! We offer Princess, Queen, Fairy & Mermaid characters, but with our Power Up signature twist. We offer your little Royals-in-Training the inside scoop on what is actually involved in being a real Queen: Prowess Power, Exceptional Strength and Unmitigated Kindness. And having a few Power Poses doesn’t hurt (cue the cameras). Get ready for the funny and fierce princess they forgot to show you in the movie version.
Help! My child is begging for a visit from the Ice Queen herself.
Yasss Queen! We do offer a few traditional storybook characters. And rest assured as with all of our entertainment packages, we bring our unique Power Up twist to the Party.
Do you offer Superhero parties?
We’d actually really like Moana, Cinderella, etc. Pretty please?
We really wanted to book with Wendi, but she isn’t available?
There is only one Wendi so we do recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. A good rule of thumb is to start your entertainment search 2-3 months out to ensure greatest availability. If Wendi isn’t available don’t despair! She has personally trained and certified the other members of our Power Up Entertainment Professionals Core Collective who fully encompass our unique Transformation Entertainment for Kids. Again, you can rest assured that regardless of who you book with, all our packages come with the same 100% happiness guarantee.
What if your services aren't in my price range?
We offer our Entertainment Packages as premium service. We realize they might not work for all event budgets. There are many other newer entertainers that still are great who likely may have lower Prices. Gig Salad is a great place to look for that. We have carefully set our prices at a rate that will allow for a livable wage for our Bay Area Artists and allow our artists to continue ongoing training in their artistic modality.
What’s the 100% happiness guarantee?
What about Balloons? Do you offer those?
Balloon Art can be really beautiful to look at. But you know what isn’t fun? The sound of Balloons Popping during your event. Also cleaning up broken balloons after your event. That doesn’t sound fun at all. This is why we offer our Power Face-Painting instead of Balloon Art.
Power Face-Painting…what’s that?
Instead of basic cheek art, your child and their friends will have the opportunity to fully become any number of different characters, creatures and conceptual ideas. This full fantasy style face-painting ignites imagination and encourages powerfully fun play. Check out some examples here. We think of our Face-Painting as the final step to fully transforming your child into the Fierce Feline, Powerful Princess or Dynamic Dragon you know them to be.
Help -- My child has sensitive skin.
I’m having a lot of kids. Can you please offer simpler designs?
Our Baby Rave Packages offer simple Face & Arm Paint designs better suited for younger ages. The time included in our Signature Character Entertainment & Power Up Packages allows us to make your guests look fabulous. We don’t think you want your guests leaving your event looking less than stellar, and frankly, neither do we. If you’re having a large event and expecting 25+ guests, we simply bring additional painters. Please let us know so we can help you plan accordingly.
What if more guests show up than expected?
We’ve got you! Planning an event involving kids can be tricky enough and we know not everyone always RSVP’s. Let the entertainment part be one place you don’t have to stress. We’ve built our packages with a little wiggle room to be able to accommodate a couple (1-2) extra kids if need be. However, if before the event you realize you will be expecting at least 3-5+ extra guests than originally anticipated, please let us know ASAP so we can help you to re-plan your entertainment package accordingly. We’d hate to have to turn guests away for our services at a party, but this does happen in cases where more guests arrive than planned for. We often are tightly scheduled, especially on weekends. As much as we’d *love* to paint as many people as sit in our chair, if you haven’t booked the necessary amount of time to make that happen, we won’t be able to do that. Thanks for understanding.
What time should we start our entertainment?
Can you perform outside?
How much space do you need for the entertainment?
Do parents usually like to watch the show?
Do parents need to be in the room during the show?
For our Baby Rave Packages parent’s must be in the room due to the special needs of the Very Young (1-3/4) However, if a child is 4+ your adult guests are welcome to go live it up by the drinks counter with the other parents 🙂
Are you insured?
I want to go big. Can we have more than one entertainment professional at my event?
How should we handle serving food at the party?
Do you perform for Libraries, Large Company Events, Holiday Parties, Community Street Fairs, Outdoor Festivals, etc?
The biggest thing to be aware of when planning large-scale celebrations is that the shows need their own dedicated performance area. We do provide our own sound amplification. If you would also like your event to include our Power Face-Painting, in the past we’ve usually been able to work out special packages where we’ll bring in additional artists to accommodate more kids in a quicker amount of time.
I’m nervous about having an entertainer as my child is really shy.
I’m a unicorn! I have a special request and/or question.
