Who Is the Most Popular Entertainer at a Kids Party?

We here at Kids Entertainer Hub wanted to know the answer to this question. We started researching but all we could find was what other entertainers thought, so we commissioned a paid survey of 1001 women aged 25 to 44 years.

We now have a clearer idea of what a parent thinks about when booking children’s entertainment.

In the survey, the respondents were given these choices:

  • face painter
  • characters (fairy, super hero, clown)
  • magician
  • jumping castle
  • balloon twister / sculptor
  • cartoon artist
  • petting zoo

One of these emerged a clear winner. Have a look at the results and see if you were right, then go to the comments section below and tell us how close your guess was.
