About Us

We specialize in children’s entertainment -- such as birthday parties, church occasions, library shows, and school events. For a child’s party, we provide a 1-2 hour presentation, including a magic show (which entertains everyone aged three and up) and your choice of face/hand painting or balloon animal sculptures.

A one-hour party can entertain up to 20 children with our magic show, and either painting or balloons. If you are planning on having a party of more than 20 children, want additional entertainment, or if you just would like to have Jelly Bean present for a longer time, we will plan a custom event that meets your time, arrangements and party theme. For a family, corporate picnic, or outdoor event we include parachute games -- non-competitive games that everyone can play.

Our Parties & Special Events Feature:

• Clowns
• Puppets
• Storytelling
• Comedy Magic
• Face or Hand Painting
• Parachute Picnic Games
• Animal Balloon Sculptures
• Clown Ministry Programs
