10 Essential Tips for Booking a Magician for Your Child’s Birthday Party in Montgomery and Bucks County(no title)

Hello, families of Montgomery and Bucks County, PA! 🎈

Are you planning a magical birthday bash for your little one? Booking the right magician can transform the party into an unforgettable experience! Here's what you need to know to ensure a spellbinding celebration:

1. Experience with Children

Choose a magician who specializes in children's entertainment, ensuring the show is age-appropriate and engaging for your young guests. Rick has been specializing in this area for over 20 years!

2. Style of Magic

Whether it's a laugh-filled, comedic act or a wonder-inducing mysterious show, pick a style that aligns with your child's interests and the party's theme.

3. Interactive Show

Kids love to be part of the action! Opt for magicians who offer interactive shows where the birthday child and friends can become star assistants. Rick's shows are highly interactive, making the VIP child/children the star. 

4. Duration of Performance

A 30-40 minute show often works best for young attention spans. Confirm the show's length to keep everyone enchanted without overdoing it. For an audience of under six years, Rick recommends keeping the show to under 40 minutes; older kids will enjoy a longer show up to an hour

5. Space and Setup Requirements

Ensure your chosen venue in Montgomery or Bucks County can accommodate the magician's space needs for a seamless performance. Rick's show is designed particularly to accommodate space constraints and can easily work in any family/living room -- and a specialty is a show designed specifically to work outdoors on the patio or backyard. 

6. Customization Options

Ask if the magician can personalize the show for your child's age or incorporate special elements like a favorite theme or character. Rick has tailored shows to feature effects in themes like Marvel, Disney princesses, PJ Masks, Mario Brothers, Transformers and the ever popular Harry Potter.

7. References and Reviews

Look for magicians with stellar reviews and testimonials, especially from parents in the Montgomery and Bucks County areas. Rick collects rave reviews on his Google Business page

8. Pricing and Packages

Understand all costs involved and what the package includes. Some magicians might offer additional perks like magic workshops or souvenirs. Rick ensures that his prices are fair and competitive accounting for 1000's of hours of training and preparation that go into ensuring that your show is awesome.   

9. Availability and Booking Process

Book early, especially for popular times like weekends. Understand the booking, deposit, and cancellation policies to avoid any surprises. You'll find that Rick's process is the simplest and easiest in the business. 

10. Safety and Professionalism

Ensure the magician has a professional demeanor and prioritizes safety, providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all. Rick puts safety first - no tricks are dangerous (although they sometimes may appear to be), and live animals are not used (for their protection and because there are sometimes allergies among audience members).

Today’s Blog: Making Magic for Your Five-Year-Old’s Birthday Party

Hello, magical friends and curious parents! 🌟

One question I often get asked is, "What do you recommend for a five-year-old's birthday party?" It's a great question, and today, I'm excited to share my recommendations for making your little one's celebration a magical hit!

The Perfect Show for a Five-Year-Old

For a 5th birthday party, I recommend a 30-40 minute fun-filled, interactive magic show. At this age, children love being part of the action, and there's nothing more thrilling than having your child be the center of attention. They'll help with many tricks, and much of the time, it'll seem like they're making the magic happen themselves!

Pricing and Value

My price for the show is very competitive and includes not just the performance but also the unique experience and memories that will last a lifetime. Price can vary depending on certain specifics for your unique event, such as the date/time and the travel time. Contact me for details.

A Special Touch with Magic Words

One unique feature everyone loves is the use of personalized magic words. Instead of the usual "Abracadabra," we make the birthday child's name part of the spell. Imagine the delight when the entire room shouts, "Happy Birthday, [Child's Name]!" as part of the magic. There is a natural running gag where if the words are forgotten (by me), something get's goofed up - and the audience is quick to remind me -- this never fails to add laughter and fun to the show.

An Empowering Finale

My shows always end on a high note with an empowering interactive effect that involves everyone's help. It's designed to leave the kids screaming with excitement and wanting more!

Teaching Magic and Giving Gifts

I believe in spreading the joy of magic, so I teach all the guests how to do a simple trick and provide them with the necessary props and instructions to take home. And, of course, the birthday child receives an extra magic gift, to commemorate the event.

Flexibility for Your Party

While this recommendation assumes a birthday party for friends and family around your child's age, I understand every party is unique. Whether your guests are older or it's a mixed family audience, I'm happy to tailor the show to fit everyone's enjoyment.

Booking and Availability

I'm available for parties and can adapt to your schedule to ensure the magic fits perfectly into your celebration.

A Magical Anecdote

Recently, I performed at a 5th birthday in the heart of Lower Gwynedd PA, where the birthday child was ecstatic to be the star magician. The personalized magic words for the day created such a buzz that even the adults joined in with laughter and cheers. It was a beautiful reminder of how magic can bring us all together, creating joy and wonder.

So, if you're planning a magical celebration for your five-year-old, or have any questions about creating the perfect party experience, feel free to reach out. Let's make their birthday unforgettable!

Mesmerizing Monday Magic in Montgomery County

Personalizing Magic in Blue Bell and Horsham

Hello, magical beings from Philadelphia, Montgomery Township, and the charming towns of Blue Bell and Horsham! 🌟

Following the excitement of our last post about the lottery prediction magic, today’s blog delves into how this effect has been captivating audiences and leaving a lasting impression:

The Lottery Effect: A Hit in Blue Bell and Horsham

Recently, I’ve been performing the lottery prediction effect in Blue Bell and Horsham, PA, and the response has been phenomenal. The thrill of predicting the Mega Millions numbers has been a crowd-pleaser, creating moments of awe and wonder.

A Personalized Magical Experience

But the magic doesn’t stop there. I’ve found a way to make this effect even more special by personalizing it for the person of honor. Imagine the birthday child or guest of honor being the one to reveal the predicted numbers, only to find that they match perfectly with the lottery card. This not only heightens the excitement but also makes them the star of the show.

A Keepsake to Cherish

To keep the magic alive forever, I’ve started creating a special, one-of-a-kind keepsake for the person of honor. This memento is a tangible reminder of the magical experience and serves as a beautiful token of their special day. It’s my way of ensuring that the wonder and joy of magic continue long after the party ends.

So, whether you’re planning a magical event in Blue Bell, Horsham, or anywhere in the Philadelphia area, remember that personal touches can transform a great magic show into an unforgettable experience.

Magical Monday: A Lotto Surprise at a Birthday Party

The odds were Trillions to 1!

Hello, magical beings from Philadelphia, Montgomery Township, and all the enchanting places in between! 🌟

It’s Monday, and today’s blog post is not just about party planning, but also about the magic that can happen when creativity meets skill:

A Special Magical Prediction

At a recent birthday party for a 4-year-old turning 5 in nearby Ambler, PA, I decided to add a special twist to my magic show. I usually recommend a short 30-minute show for kids this age, but this time, I included a unique magical prediction effect that involved the entire audience.

The Lotto Prediction

I asked the audience to name six random Mega Millions Lotto numbers. The excitement was palpable as each number was called out, creating a unique combination that no one could have predicted. But here’s where the magic happened: I revealed an official lottery card purchased earlier in the week with those exact six numbers! The look of astonishment on everyone’s faces was priceless.

A Lesson in Timing

The party had its challenges, though. The magic show was scheduled to start at the same time as the party, leading to late arrivals and a delayed start by 30 minutes. With a face painter arriving shortly after and some guests arriving even later, the party became a whirlwind of activities. It was a reminder that timing and planning are crucial for a smooth event.

So, whether you’re planning a magical event in Ambler or anywhere in the Philadelphia area, remember that a well-timed and well-planned party can make all the difference. And sometimes, a touch of magic can turn an ordinary event into an extraordinary experience.

Until then, keep the magic alive!
