Absolutely! Twistina is a member of Equity and has 10 Million pounds public liability insurance, enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check & can supply you with health and safety risk assessment.
Children of any age can choke on balloons if they breathe them in when trying to blow them up, or if they chew on deflated scraps of balloons.
Very young children are more prone to choking injuries because they put things in their mouths. Also, their airways are so small that they can easily get plugged.
At public or large events, it is not possible to provide a balloon for everyone. Twistina will try to judge the demand & allowing for the time constraint of the booking, choose the sophistication of the sculptures in accordance.
At parties / smaller events if a balloon model is required for every guest, it is imperative that the client & Twistina have agreed on how many people are in attendance. This is necessary to fulfil everyone within the specified time & to provide the best service. Extra pre-made balloon sculptures may be made by prior arrangement if numbers are larger than the artiste can cater for.
If the number of guests exceeds the agreed amount, it may be possible for Twistina to work extra time at the appropriate rate if formally agreed.
Sorry No! Twistina is very much a family orientated entertainer & as such will only make balloon art that is family friendly. Anyway, adults just love the stuff she makes, so there is no need!
Yes! Latex balloons are made from the sap of the rubber tree and is a completely natural substance. It breaks down when exposed to the elements of nature, decomposing at about the same rate as an oak leaf.
If more than one balloon twister or further children's entertainment is required, her partner Twistopher presents balloon modelling, kids' magic, barrel organ music and Punch & Judy puppet shows.
Twistopher The Balloon Man is also available to hire separately.
Twistina & Twistopher may also be able to help with finding quality face painters.
