Your set up crew is professional, kind and courteous. I appreciate the continuity of your
staff as this makes it easier for event set up.

Sears North Riverside – Tamara T.

The Fun Ones had everything imaginable and even some we didn't imagine! They are our new event planning source.

I can't say enough good about the experience of working with you! Kristin was so kind and accommodating! We used a Slushie machine for my son's graduation party and it was a huge hit!! Thank you so much!!


Using the Fun Ones for our family celebration was easy and enjoyable. Our product arrived early and was picked up late. We had a blast in a safe, clean environment and no one wanted to go home early. Thanks!

Sauganash Community Association – Sue W.

Your personnel and equipment were wonderful beginning with working with Kristin on
our order, and on the day of the event the equipment and the workers were great!

This was the first time using The Fun Ones and we look forward to utilizing your services in the future. Your experienced crew went right to work and set up the Moonwalk in a perfect location. The children loved the Moonwalk and used it the entire day (when they weren't frolicking with the Clown2008)! Jellybean the clown was wonderful! The children loved her from the minute she stepped out of her vehicle. We contracted for the Clown to entertain with balloon animals and magic but the children had other ideas; they wanted face painting! Jellybean was prepared with the face-paint in her car and accommodated the kid's requests (after approval from our coordinator2008). A Moonwalk, a Clown, some face-paint and balloon animals; we had happy children and entertained adults; our picnic was enjoyed by all! Thank you Fun Ones!
