For the balloon twister, one hour often turns into 3 hours!

Keep in mind, there are thousands of birthday parties in DFW and most of them are celebrated on a Saturday. The balloon twister you hire might have a party in Garland, Texas, then the next party is in Fort Worth, Texas. Then it’s back to Cedar Hill Texas, and finally ending up in Frisco Texas.  This can turn 4-hours of balloon twisting into a 12-hour workday.

In most cases, your balloon twister will be on a tight schedule and must leave on time to get to the next party. Just think, what if you had to cram a one-week work schedule into one day? Then you are at the mercy of Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex traffic.

A lot of balloon twisters end up driving about 20,000 miles of in-city traffic a year. And when they arrive at your event, they have to be in a good mood! It’s a lot harder than most people think.

Expect about 20-25 balloon animals per hour

Yes, balloon twisters can make balloons faster, but you have to factor in the child choosing the color and the shape of each balloon animal. That usually takes up to 30 seconds. Some shapes require multiple balloons.

Balloon animals are fun, but not for everyone.


Never give a baby, or toddler a balloon animal. If your child tends to chew on things, balloon animals should be restricted. Balloons can be a choking hazard. When a baby or toddler bites a balloon, it can pop, and pieces of latex can block the airflow.

Magicians | Clowns | Face Painters

What do they have in common? Many magicians, clowns & face painters also do balloon twisting.

So you could have multiple forms of entertainment by hiring just one person!
