Frequently Asked Questions
All of Sydney for birthday parties. For larger events I travel Australia wide, (I even travel internationally for the really big shows).
How much space do you need?
as long as the kids can all sit in one area- that’s fine. so yes even in small homes it will work
Can you perform outside?
Yes, Inside or out- is not a problems- However- on a really HOT day- the magic lessons become harder as kids sweat, so please take note of the weather- the magic show can be performed in side or out side.
Do I need to prepare anything?
No. Aardy brings everything he needs.
We are in a park-what happens if it rains?
You need a backup location that is not effected by rain
Sydney- I live in Hornsby
How many kids can you do the party for?
up to 30 Kids is reasonable- I have done vacation care magic Show & lesson workshops with 96 kids
What age is this party for?
- The 45 Minute Package: 3 an up. Each age gets a different show- so the 8 year olds get a different show than a 6 year old, Over the age of 10, they are getting more adult related magic.
- The 2 hour program: Is suitable for age 6 and up
Can the party be different ages?
Yes and no, extreme ages say 1-15 is going to be tough, it is easy to compare watching TV. Kids at 15 watch different things than a 5 year old- even a 10 year old, and the magic show is the same, in these cases I do bit of both shows, but it is harder to perform. ages that are close say 5-7 year olds can be performed easily.
What are some of the tricks you do?
This is simple an amazing show which is designed for maximum audience participation- The tricks I perform are simple to understand but are full of comedy, music, colour and amazement such as Making a Flower appear, making my magic wand magically levitate, making things disappear and reappear I also perform many of the tricks I performed on Saturday Disney.
What is The DVD given to all the children and how much extra does it cost?
The DVD does not cost anything extra. The DVD teaches 3 magic tricks that children can learn very easily with objects found around the home. It is a fun bonus for dealing with Aardy. and is perfect to put into lollie bags.
What is The DVD given to the birthday child and how much extra does it cost?
This DVD is a bonus and does not cost anything extra. The DVD is similar to the DVD given to all the other children- the only difference is that it contains 10 tricks and not 3.
How long is Aardy at the party?
- 45 Minute package: Aardy is at the party for 45 Minutes to 1 hour- depending on the number of kids
- 2 Hour Package: 2 hours to 2 hour 15 Minutes
Do you stay to help cut the cake?
Yes, I can stay and help by getting the kids to sing Happy Birthday and if you would like photos with me- that is OK too. Only if Aardy is booked towards the end of the party.
Are there animals in your show?
No, I don’t use live animals, which may make a mess in your home, or bite your child. My focus is more on the audience participation. I want the children to be the STARS of the show, not an animal. Plenty of Magicians use animals and you can tell that the rest of their act is not so engaging because they focus every single picture on the rabbit and not the kids
Are there any photo opportunities throughout the show?
Yes, I even tell you when a photo opportunity is coming up, and the end of the show- your child is transformed into a magician
Can the parents watch the show- would they enjoy the show as well?
It is optional for parents to be at the show- you can either sit back and relax elsewhere- but if you want to watch, Aardy’s show will entertain the kids and the parents watching
What are some of the party games in the 2 hour program?
The Games are non exclusion games – which means that all kids are involved at every stage in the game as apposed to games like duck duck goose- where kids get eliminated and have to sit on the side. Games are played only if the kids are restless as a back up plan (as it takes some of their energy away, but mainly the kids are interested in learning the tricks)
