Why You Should Hire A Professional Magician for Your Child’s Birthday Party

Every child wants a magical birthday. As a parent, every year it’s a challenge to plan a fun-filled party that will be memorable for your guests. Hiring a magician for your child’s birthday party provides an engaging, exciting and interactive experience for not only the birthday boy or girl but for their friends as well.

After magician Mat Franco’s recent win on America’s Got Talent along with the thousands of magic videos on YouTube, magic is the hottest act in town. From adults to children, magic never looses its ability to amaze and leave a crowd speechless. A great magician will be able to entertain guests of all ages. The task of hiring a magician for child’s birthday party might feel overwhelming. You want to make sure they are extremely professional and offer entertainment that is age appropriate.You can find the best referrals through friends. Before you book the date and send out the invites, it’s a good idea to interview the magicians over the phone.

Here are some helpful things to consider when interviewing a magician.

-Do they return your phone call promptly?

– Are they friendly?Magic By Randy | Chicago's Corporate, Family, and Event Entertainer

-Featured articles or a promotional packet?

-What is their professional experience?

-Where have they recently performed?

-Are they insured?

-Do they send out a signed contract to confirm booking?

Always remember, you get what you pay for. The price range for booking a magician can range from $150.00 to over $400.00. Never base your decision on the price alone. For younger children, magicians often shorten their shows to 30-40 minutes, while shows for older age groups are 40-50 minutes.

Here are few key factors to pricing.

Having a front row seat to witness the wonder and joy that magic brings makes it the perfect entertainment for your party. There is nothing like seeing the delight in your child’s eyes, and your party guests leave with smiles on their faces.

Giving thanks

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. Presents are not given and everyone can celebrate it. There is so much that I have to be thankful for, my family, my health, my career, and much more. Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!
