Jungle Jim came to our library to perform his Superhero Training show and the kids and parents had a blast! He was so full of energy and lots of fun! Everyone was amazed and full of excitement when he climbed inside his six foot balloon! I was thoroughly impressed with the way he interacted with the children and his ability to think on his feet. I would highly recommend him to any library or private party. We'll definitely be having him here again!

Working with Jungle Jim was a great experience all around. The booking went smoothly, he got there with plenty of time to set up, and he is a super nice guy. The kids loved the performance and were very excited to volunteer and help him out on stage! I especially appreciate how he created a show to fit the summer's theme, and how he was so engaged with all the kids who attended, even remembering some of their names as the show progressed. His show did not disappoint. I would definitely work with Jim again in the future.

We had Jungle Jim visit our library yesterday for his Mousetrap Science Show. We had a good crowd of about 40 children, and they were very enthusiastic and seemed to be having a great time. Jungle Jim's silly jokes and use of audience participation was spot on. He invited at least 15 children onstage during the show, and everyone got to say and do actions with him as he performed.

He made a number of simple machines out of balloon animals and children (mostly who stepped down from the stage with static-y hair), and effectively explained how each machine works and why it might be important in our lives. He then took all of the machines he had made and applied them by creating a Rube Goldbeg-esque mousetrap to catch a mouse. Fun warning to librarians- Jungle Jim may ask for your participation as well, which my patrons enjoyed immensely.

Overall, Jungle Jim's show was extremely successful, and I will certainly have him back in the future. His prices are toward the higher end, but it was worth the money.

I loved working with Jim because he is extremely organized, friendly and professional. Everything from booking on out is clear and communication is easy. A pleasure to work with! 

Jungle Jim's rapport with the audience was extraordinary. The children and parents were all happily and actively engaged in every moment of the show, and if anyone strayed, Jim was able to reel them back in immediately. His energy level is through the roof without it being over the top, making his performance hard to take your attention off of.

The most important thing to know about working with Jim is that his show is well worth your effort to have at your library, no matter which program you choose. It will be fun, humorous and popular and all you will hear are positives from your patrons.

One reason I really like having Jungle Jim come to the  Reuben Hoar Library is I know that I am getting a quality program and a real crowd pleaser! He is also great with crowd control and making sure EVERYONE has an enjoyable experience!

One thing Jim does different than other entertainers is his educational high-energy balloon show is unique to the circuit of performers I have had. He definitely will be on my 2015 list of performers!

One moment I remember from his performance (that the children really enjoyed) was that I was the mouse who was caught in the trap and Jim made me ears and a tail to match my outfit! As he says, "It's all in the details." And, he DOES pay attention to those details throughout the show! Fun for the whole family!

Thank you for the performance, it was great, and it was truly different.  Simple machines as you've never seen them before, hands on and occasionally exploding! Whether you need to catch a mouse or not, you can't beat this fun and educational performance. In the hands of Jungle Jim balloons turn children into active participants in a simple-machine extravaganza!

Fantastic! The children found you funny and hilarious. They thought he was so awesome and were happy to watch. Get him every time, that was a fantastic show. 

I enjoyed the variety that was available and it was the first time my program saw a balloon show, which I felt made it unique in entertainment.  

The kids were watching and constantly engaged.  They were laughing and were allowed to volunteer, cheer, applaud, and take part in the magic. I would absolutely recommend Jungle Jim to come to your school or program!

He was great at redirecting the students and gaining their attention. The fact that he has a variety to choose to from and incorporates this variety with in his show makes him a success in entertaining large groups of children of all ages.  We would absolutely welcome him back!

"We just finished up our summer reading program and I wanted to thank you for being part of what was a wonderfully successful summer! The kids were very entertained and I had a number of parents say they enjoyed it as much as the kids!"
