hour of lessons & Games
food- about 15 minutes
MAGIC SHOW begins
approx 15 minutes for cutting of cake
are some of the party games?
The Games are non exclusion games - which means that all kids are involved at every stage in the game as apposed to games like duck duck goose- where kids get aliminated and have to sit on the side. Games are played only if the kids are restless (as it takes some of their energy away, but mainly the kids are interested in learning the tricks
much space do you need?
how many kids there are but if all the kids can sit in a circle, then the games will work well
many kids can you do the party for?
from 5 to 15
is best- It can be done for larger groups but you will need a large
amount of space for the adventure games- best to call.
age is this party for?
6 an up and
works best- I have done a few 5 year old parties but they have only
worked with a small group of kids- they just don't sit down for too
long- if your child is very young perhaps a one on one session would
be more appropriate call for details
are some of the tricks the kids learn?
don't want other magicians knowing what I do, it is a unique product,
and I do not want everyone doing it and doing it half as good so I
will tell you over the phone but not put it up on the site for
business security reasons- but they are unique to say the least and
amazing, Levitations, making things disappear, reading peoples minds
are some of the tricks you do?
This is simple
an amazing show which is designed for maximum audience participation-
The tricks I perform
are simple to understand but are full of comedy, music, colour and
amazement such as Making a Flower appear, making my magic wand
magically levitate, making things disappear and reappear
I also perform many of the tricks I performed on Saturday
you perform outside?
is The DVD given to all the children and how much extra does it cost?
Inside or out- is not a problems- However-
on a really HOT day- the magic lessons become harder as kids sweat, so
please take note of the weather- the magic show can be performed in
side or out side.
The DVD does not cost anything extra.
The DVD teaches 3 magic tricks that children can learn very easily
with objects found around the home. It is a fun bonus for dealing with
Aardy. and is perfect to put into lollie bags.
is The DVD given to the birthday child and how much extra does it
This DVD is a bonus and does not cost
anything extra. The DVD is similar to the DVD given to all the other
children- the only difference is that it contains 10 tricks and not 3.
long is Aardy at the party?
Aardy is at the party for 2
hours- and arrives earlier to set up.
you stay to help cut the cake?
Yes, I can stay
and help by getting the kids to sing Happy Birthday and if you would
like photos with me- that is OK too. Only
if Aardy is booked towards the end of the party.
there animals in your show?
No, I donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t use
live animals, which may make a mess in your home, or bite your
child. My focus is more on the audience participation. I want the
children to be the STARS of the show, not an animal.
there any photo opportunities throughout the show?
Yes, I even tell
you when a photo opportunity is coming up, and the end of the show-
your child is transformed into a magician
the parents watch the show- would they enjoy the show as well?
optional for parents to be at the show- you can either sit back and
relax elsewhere- but if you want to watch, Aardy's show can entertain
