Quotes 2015

“My two young sons haven’t stopped talking about your show the other day at Manulife. You gave my son the balloon hat at the end and he was elated. They are both so excited to get a magic wand they have mentioned it every hour since yesterday and colored your picture the minute we got home!

We have been recently displaced until the summer due to a house fire and the boys lost all of their toys and other belongings so it’s been a few months since we saw them this excited! Thank you so much for making them smile…it was so magical for them.”

Since my kids were small, we have seen you perform at various places, libraries, etc., and you never fail to put on a hilarious, entertaining and truly “magical” show! I don’t know who laughs more, the adults or the kids! You certainly have a way with children, and its amazing to watch. Your natural talent is something very rare. My son and his friend did go up to do a magic trick with you today, and though he is quite shy, he was thrilled to be up there with you! You’re quite a celebrity in our house, even my husband was disappointed he didn’t go to the Spring Fair today as he enjoys you as well! Thanks for bringing so much happiness to kids everywhere!”
