A Balloon Modeller is a great addition to any party or celebration, making it fun, engaging and memorable. He or she can also relieve you of the strain as host, giving you time to see to other aspects of the event, happy in the knowledge that the kids will be kept occupied.
In today’s hi-tech word, it’s surprising how much kids still enjoy traditional experiences offered by children’s entertainers. These talented performers have a natural rapport with children and are experts at holding their attention. A professional Balloon Modeller will make your party sparkle with fun and excitement.
WHAT IS A BALLOON MODELLER?
Working at high speed, Balloon Modellers inflate colourful balloons and twist them into incredible shapes. They make cars, bicycles, planes, flowers, funny hats, animals, cartoon characters and even giant balloon jewellery! The children get to keep these brilliant creations and can even have a go at balloon sculpting themselves.
Ideal for ages 3-7, this will be a fast-paced and highly interactive show, full of games and high jinks, guaranteed to bring excitement and much hilarity to parties and special occasions.
WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS ARE BALLOON MODELLERS HIRED FOR?
Modelling balloons is innovative and creative, and balloons can shaped into pretty much anything! Many Balloon Modellers can even take requests from the crowd, so this kind of entertainment can work well at any celebration, putting the wow factor into your event, and impressing guests whatever their age and tastes.
Balloons are universally loved by children and adults the world over, so booking a Balloon Modeller for a child’s birthday party, family fun day, summer fair or street party is guaranteed to be popular. A queue is likely to form at the Balloonist’s table, where they will display their most elaborate pieces, such as impressive models of spiders, rabbits, flowers and hearts.
Throughout the party, these unique performers will fire the kids’ imaginations with tailored balloon elephants, frogs, butterflies, dogs, monkeys, giraffes and other animals, or whatever fits in with the theme of the party.
Balloon artists can either work from a table in a specific location, or move around from group to group, offering a selection of balloon characters. If your little ones like dressing up, how about a balloon model sword, pirate hat or fairy wings to complete their outfit? The children can even take their balloons home, making a great reminder of the party fun!
It’s worth noting that a professional Balloonist is an all round children's entertainer, and as well as skilfully moulding balloons, they will incorporate comedy, banter and a general cheeky repertoire to the mix. Some Balloonists also offer additional services such as face painting and general arts and crafts. If this is not offered on the Balloonist’s profile, then it’s worth using our messaging service to enquire with them personally.
Balloon Modellers can work surprisingly well as adult birthday party entertainment. Whether it’s a birthday party, anniversary or hen do, a Balloon Modeller will be welcomed with humour and a sense of irony and fun. Caution: helium may cause extreme belly laughs!
There are times during a wedding day when it can really help to hire an entertainer for the children, especially while photos are being taken, during speeches or as guests are mingling at your drinks reception. Kids won’t have a chance to become bored, restless or troublesome, as they will be far too busy having fun.
If you’ve hired a live band for the evening, consider having a table set up in the corner of the hall, where a queue of excited children will form as they each wait for their own specially-tailored balloon!
Corporate & Promotional Events
A Balloon Modeller provides great entertainment for shopping centres, school fetes and summer fairs. Not only are they consistently popular with children, they also hold a wonderful, nostalgic place in the hearts of adults.
If you’re appearing at a trade fair, or holding a product launch, a Balloonist will attract a huge amount of attention, making it well worth the money. So, for all-round entertainment with a twist, hire one of our amazing Balloon Modellers!
HOW MUCH WILL A BALLOON MODELLER COST?
Typically, a Balloon Modeller costs £200 to £400 in the UK ($200 - $400 in the U.S. and €230 - €450 in Europe). Since prices vary, we recommend getting in touch with your chosen performer for a free, no-obligation quote. Our easy-to-use directory allows you to search for professionals in your area and contact them via their profile page. Feel free to ask them what packages they offer. Some will add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
HOW LONG CAN I HIRE A BALLOON MODELLER FOR?
On average, Balloon Modellers perform for 60-90 minutes, although they can tailor their performance times to suit you and your event. Please feel free to let your performer know how long you would like them for when you ask for a quote.
WHAT SET UP REQUIREMENTS ARE THERE?
Balloonists do not require much space. Overall, an area measuring 2.5m x 2.5m should be sufficient. This includes room for a table and perhaps some wall space for displaying pre-made balloon art.
Balloon Modellers provide their own pumps, balloons and other equipment and require very little by way of set up time. They may require a power supply close to where they will be performing, so it’s a good idea to check this when booking.
They will also need a backstage area in which to prepare. If there is no purpose-built dressing room available, a lockable office or back room should be sufficient. You should also offer your performer water, soft drinks and tea or coffee. If they are performing over a long period, they will also need a meal.
