Tinley Park Park District  

--Sandy Schevalier, Tinley Park Park District, July 2010


Dale was very pleasant and professional at our store promotion. He was very good at keeping the people entertained and engaged so they didn't mind waiting in line. Because he was very good at keeping the children occupied, the parents would come into the store to shop. I was a great experience.Quote


--Margie, Owner, July 2010


I have been planning our company picnic for ten years and always thought we had a decent balloon artists. Little did I know Dale was above and beyond decent. He was outstanding and exceeded my expectations by far! His balloons were amazing and he kept the line laughing while they waited. We will plan our picnic around his availability! He made our picnic a very special event. Quote

The kids really enjoyed Dale. My daughter continues to mention that the balloons were great, but its Dale's jokes and funny comments that made it really fun. She say that she really enjoyed listening to Dale entertain the kids while the was making the creations.On a aside note, a couple of weeks after our event we visited the City of Chicago Halloween Event at the Daily Center Plaza. They had "Balloon Entertainers", who weren't very good or entertaining. For me, it really shows just what a great job Dale does.

Thanks Dale.Quote

Girl Scouts  

-- Linda Kuhl, Crestwood, IL, May 2008


I am happy to tell you in writing how happy I was that you came to entertain the girls at the end of the scout’s party. You really saved the day by accommodating us – so far north and on such short notice. (I was grateful for your professionalism & early arrival, too!)

The theme of my year as leader of the scouts was creativity – I truly believed in getting the creative juices flowing and losing oneself in the process. Maybe that’s lost on 5 year olds… then again maybe not – They enjoyed our monthly arts & crafts sessions immensely.

Your participation at our culminating festivities was a perfect tie-in because of your high level of creativity and skills. I think of what you do as a form of art – both in the production and in the presentation.  Of courses, the balloon sculptures where AMAZING and far surpassed anything anyone there had ever seen.  I received complements about your balloons for days & weeks afterwards.

Thanks for everything

PS – We recently attended a cook out that had a balloon artist.  I describe you to my friends like this: If the balloon artist at this cook out is a balloon artist. Then the Magical Balloon-dude is the Balloon Van Gogh.  He’s simply Amazing!Quote


-- Kristen Grant - Park Ridge, IL, June 2007


It was the day before Blue & Gold and we didn't have entertainment lined up for the event. I ran into Dale at the Jewel Store where he was making balloons for the customers. Dale was flexible enough to entertain at our event that next day.

I've seen other balloon entertainers who make the typical swan hats, wiener dogs and balloon swords but Dale was the hit with his aliens, Oddie the dog, the balloon Boy Scout, and butterflies.

Dale did a great job in predicting the amount of time we would need to have him based upon the numbers of kids in the group. Everyone went home with a balloon.

Thanks DaleQuote

Everyone in our family (young and old) had a wonderful experience and was in awe as they watched the balloons turn into various creations. This was by far the best entertainment we’ve had at our family picnic, something that was truly enjoyed by all!

I don’t know how you did it, but you remembered who had a balloon already and who didn’t. You did a great job making kids laugh and they didn’t mind waiting their turn, which was a great help.

Thank you for showing us such a wonderful show.


-- Donna Dicksen & Family

Dear Dale,

You were a big smash at your grand opening and people in the office are still talking about your balloon twisting this morning. Everyone loved you, your balloons characters, and your personality was a perfect fit with our group. Your interaction with the customer was awesome.

Libraries TOP

Dale is easy to work with. He is fun to talk to and very professional when working.

Dale is an excellent performer. His "patter" is extremely funny. He makes the most incredible balloon creations I have ever seen. He explains, as he creates, how he is doing each step. Adults and children were all mesmerized.

- Mary Cullen, Head of Youth Services, Palos Heights Public Library, April 2010


When I hired "Magical Balloon-dude Dale" I expected to see the typical orange giraffe or pink poodle with he pon-pom tail. I was amazed to see the beautiful "works of art" he created from balloons. The audiences enjoyed chatting with him as he made their personally chosen characters from balloons. It was definitely a quality program for all ages.

- Mary Cullen, Head of Youth Services, Palos Heights Public Library, Nov 2008

Magical balloon-dude Dale drew the largest audience we have ever had for our Sunday Sampler program! His show was designed for all ages, and all ages were well represented and happily entertained in the s SRO crowd.

From start to finish Dale was a true professional, a pleasure to work with. He arrived early to setup, his attire was perfect, he was courteous and considerate. And flexible. He altered his program to better suit our target audiences for kids, teens and adults, and he agreed to display his creation in the library vs. giving them to the kids from the audience who served as assistants. He also sent the library a full color poster for promotional purpose.

Dale's program was a change of pace from our musical offerings, and the audiences was delighted. He had all ages laughing at the comedy and marveling at his ball creations.

Dale is not your "ordinary" balloon twister. He is able to keep all party goers entertained with his awesome works of art and quick wit. He made our open house a success.

Trade Shows TOP

Dale made a lasting impression as not only as a man with great talent, but asked a lot of questions about my company that made me appreciate his talent and generosity. Later on Dale came to your booth first and honored one of my co-workers with a balloon in the shape of a poodle. I later saw him at this own booth and requested a Mickey Mouse and he did a wonderful job. We exchanged service cards and discuss the company he was representing.

I described Magical Balloon-dude Dale to co-words like this: Picture a man with a vibrant, jacket of many colors asking a million questions a minute about you and your product/service while making any object possible out of latex balloon. One of the most unbelievable things I have ever seen that made me leaving the booth asking myself “How did he do that?” Noting, short of fabulous one on one entertainment.

- Paul Hodges, Oz Fitness, Cary, NC, 2008

Dale worked to make our event excellent by spending time before the event researching what we do and working with us to get the most out of his services. He has an extraordinary level of energy which was to bring people into our booth space. I cant stress enough how many compliments we received and how many attendees ask where he was once he left. Overall Excellent!

My 'Show Girl' Balloon hat really attracted a crowd and lots of looks. My boss didn't think I would wear it all day, but after the great response and to just see people smile and laugh, was well worth me wearing it. It was a huge attention getter and at such a large convention in Las Vegas, you need all the help you can get to have people stop at your booth. This “Show Girl” Balloon Hat was great and the Magical Balloon-dude Dale does a fantastic job, very talented & creative. Thanks for making our booth more exciting and a real show stopper.

--Cora Ferris, LSI International

Las Vegas Convention

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for being close to our booth at the ASHHRA conference on Oct. 15th and 16th. The conference was very slow for most of the vendors this year because they always had the attendees in meetings but we were still able to capture a hit rate of 17%.

TodayCare, LLC

I talked with a few of my competitors at the conference and they did not have near that hit rate. I attribute this to you being two booths down from us. You had people searching for your wonderful balloon art and they would always wonder past our booth on the way to talk with the client you were representing. It was absolutely amazing to see all the people wondering around talking about what you had created for them. You have a real talent and it was a joy to watch.

RE: Kids Day Success - US Cellular Field - Chicago White Sox Game Aug 12, 2007

Just wanted to pass along a note about how enjoyable Kids Day was this past Sunday. My 2 boys did jumping jacks prior to the game, the fundamentals deck, got pictures with SouthPaw and Ronald McDonald, the rain room, tattoos, got great balloon hats and finally ran the bases after the game. Events like this continue to give us Sox fans something to brag about to our rivals on the North Side. Please don't change a thing.

The balloon dude Dale did a great job of getting balloons to all kids and was very personable. He made the minimal wait we had for the balloon hat enjoyable. I plan to keep his name handy for events of my own in the future. Keep him on the Kids Day agenda moving forward!!!!!Quote


-- Tim Peterson - AT&T Business Premier Client Group Account Executive


It's a new season and it's filled with excitement.. which begins when fans enter the United Center and encounter the great entertainment we have the privilege of featuring on behalf of the THE CHICAGO BULLS.

This year, the lineup includes you (and your extend "team of talents") and so far, thanks to your efforts, we continue to receive "rave reviews" for the pre-game performances.

Chicago Bulls

So we plan to "repeat" our presentation at upcoming games in the New Year, for the Bulls as well as for other corporate clients, when the budget dictate that opportunity.

Thank you again for a job well done.
