"First time rental of jumper plus 2hr (face paint and balloon). AWESOME! I searched prices (including all the fine print) and they were most fair, especially with the quality of their work. Our artist went way over and beyond in making balloons and beautiful face paintings. SO Talented! Jumper was set up efficiently, timely, clean. I could not ask for a better first experience. Definitely recommend and will return for future party plans. *Another plus, they are professional.. wear a logo shirt. I did not want someone in a cheesy clown outfit or generic costume."

"We worked with these guys for our son's 9th birthday party, and it was perfect. I highly recommend them! We rented a large inflatable slide, and Chris did the most beautiful airbrush tattoos.
I can't say enough good things about them: polite, on time, everything was clean and organized! My kids and their friends were absolutely delighted, and so was I!"

"Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed having your balloon/face painting artist there yesterday at our party at Casey's Cupcakes. [Arely] did a wonderful job and all the parents were impressed with her and her talent. She was very nice and patient with all the impatient kids and we'll be using you guys in the near future! I handed at least 10 business cards yesterday as many were asking who I booked with. Thank you once again!

Yes they are fantastic. City of Redondo used them for their Volunteer Picnics we have every year. Areli made the most fantastic balloons and lots of the older people got their faces painted. We have used them 2 years in a row and will again.

My sister rented out a cotton candy machine and a balloon maker and face painter from this place for her twin boy's 1st birthday party today. I can say that I was very impressed by the how talented [Arely] was for both making balloon animals/shapes and even though she only did a few children's face painting she did a very amazing job. My niece absolutely loved the pink masquerade mask she did on her face.
She was a both a talented face painter and balloon artist and she charges $100 per hour. My sister had her for 2 hours and I think she made well over 40 balloons today with most of the 30 children getting at least two each...plus some of the adults.
She gave my sister's boys two disney Cars balloon too - very cool! The cotton candy was a little more difficult to work out - it wasn't as easy as the person made it seem. I had trouble making it look like the cotton candy sold at fairs - it clumped up together and just didn't look good when I did it. but it was still pretty fun and most of the kids got a blast eating the cotton candy.
Overall this is a very good place to get kids party machine rentals such as the cotton candy machine and they also have snow cones and popcorn machine. Also good to hire entertainers for children parties such as the balloon and face paint artist my sister hired for today.
For some they are expensive since they charged about $100 dollars per hour but honestly all the girl did non-stop was make balloons - and i don't think it's easy because some of the big ones took her awhile to make. We would definitely get party rentals from this place again for future birthday parities.

"My ASB students had decided upon an interesting theme for their upcoming dance: their idea was to decorate one side of the Multi-purpose Room with one color, and the other side with another. Their vision was to re-create the masquerade from Romeo and Juliet's first meeting. Capulets vs. Montagues. Hey, if some kind of literature lesson could be incorporated into a dance, I'm in!
At first, they thought to provide masks for everyone, but we instead considered hiring a balloon artist who could design balloon wings for the girls to wear (like Juliet) and some crazy-looking balloon hats for our "Romeos." Intermittently, he or she could create other colorful balloon mementos: flowered-corsages, Hello Kitty dolls, overalled "Despicable Me" Minions, and whatever else came to mind. We'd never before included a balloon artist before, and it sounded like a great idea, so I checked Yelp and called OC Fun.
You know, it's all about the students. They work hard, so they deserve to have fun! For a couple hours, the balloon artist--entertaining, to say the least, and swamped with requests--wandered around the dance like a pied piper. The kids had a great time not only watching [Arely] magically create--literally, from thin air--balloon masterpieces, but they also enjoyed bringing home a great memory. Hiring OC Fun was a great move on behalf of our students, and we look forward to including them in the near future."

"We selected OC Fun for our son's 5th birthday party, based on the great Yelp reviews. Scheduling was a breeze -- Chris was a delight to work with and was so helpful. Pricing was very reasonable. On the day of our event, our artist showed up early, brought an amazing fire truck balloon for our son (they asked in advance what the theme was so they could bring something for the birthday boy), and set up quickly. Kids and parents were amazed at the artistry -- there was a big flip book of designs that the kids looked through. Our artist was so enthusiastic and sweet -- the kids had a great time! Could not have been happier with this addition to our party -- we highly recommend this team!"

"We rented a bounce house for my daughter's birthday party. It was in great condition and they arrived exactly when promised to set up and take down. He even was very gracious in waiting for me after I had forgotten to give him the gate code to get in our neighborhood. Based on the reviews for the company I almost ordered from, I am extremely thankful I went to Yelp and found OC Fun. And since their prices are on the low end anyway, there is no reason to NOT hire them. I highly recommend and will be using them again for any other parties we host."

"Thanks again for a great birthday party yesterday. Everyone loved [Chris] and I'm sure you'll be getting calls for events in the future. And the bouncer was perfect - it was so clean and well-maintained, definitely a nice change from some of the bouncers we've gotten in the past.
We'll talk again around the same time next year!
- Nicole M. (Fullerton) September 9, 2012

I wanted to say Thank You for the great job [Nikki] did. She did an excellent job with the balloon twisting, everyone was so impressed with everything she made. Everyone also liked the glitter tattoos (even me). She made the party a success.
I can't thank her enough.
I also wanted to let you know Bounce U asked for your contact info, so I gave them several of your business cards. I was told they hadn't had someone do the tatoos there & were impressed by the balloon twisting."

I can't wait to use them again....."

- Sal S. (Anaheim) May 14, 2012
"Chris was so kind on the phone when I called to inquire and reserve their service. Seychelle came on- time and for 2 1/2 hrs did face and arm paintings for my 8yo & his friends for his party. The boys & girls all loved it & I got great pictures. She was GREAT with kids!! We had planned to do balloon twisting too but the kids were enjoying it so much. I would highly recommend Seychelle & the OC Fun for your party!!

Both my boys came home with some snazzy tattoos:)
I wonder how long they last? LOL!

"Thank you for sending an awesome face painting and balloon twisting artist [Arely] to my son's first birthday. She was friendly and professional. I had 75 guests and all the parents and kids who had faces done and a balloon loved her.
- Twee H. (Aliso Viejo) April 12, 2012
I wanted to follow up with you after our party this weekend. First off, the kids had a blast!!! Thanks for a great day! Seychelle arrived prompt at our scheduled start time. She brought each of our kids a special balloon that was pre-made of their favorite characters. They loved them!! I offered her a break to have some pizza and a drink and she thanked me but said she wanted to keep doing the face painting to be sure she finished all 25 kids before starting on balloons. Most of all, I liked how she interacted with the kids during the face painting. She was making conversation with them and was very pleasant to have as an addition to our party!! I had several of my guests inquiring on about your services and I gave them a business card. I would refer your company to any of my friends. It was a very positive experience working with you."
- Jennifer B. (Anaheim) March 18, 2012
"Chris was really helpful and knowledgeable about the different jumpers they had. He was on time and after he set up the jumper he was inside with Clorox wipes and cleaned the entire thing. That's huge for me because if you see them do that then you know they take good care of their equipment and take pride in keeping everything safe. My daughter was so excited to have the pink/purple castle; we will be using them from now on. :-)"

"Thank you so much for everything! You guys were so wonderful & easy to work with and the water slide was perfect! I will definitely be in contact for our next party.
- Corry N. (Mission Viejo) September 18, 2011
"I love this company. We rented their water slide for my nieces' combined birthday parties this last August and it was an awesome experience! The girls loved the slide as well did all their relatives and friends. We also had glitter tattooing and balloon twisting. They are no-hassle and good for their word in a time when many companies out there will scam you left and right. They are a great couple and definitely are an asset to Orange County and the party entertainment industry! Buy in Garden Grove/Orange County with OC FUN! I can guarantee you will not be dissatisfied with their service. My family and friends will definitely be giving OC Fun a call back for any future parties."

"Hey thanks for making my daughter's party great once again. I wrote a review for you guys on yelp.
This is a company run by a very nice and friendly husband and wife. I've used them two years in a row for my daughter's birthday party. After her 3rd birthday she talked all year about how much fun the princess castle bounce house was. Even telling strangers, when I turn 4, I'm going to have a bounce house!!!! There was no way she was going to let me off the hook for her 4th birthday.
Both times I've used them they've shown up on time to set everything up. They can set up on grass or on concrete. Once the bounce house is up, they go inside and sanitize everything by wiping it down. They'll give you some instructions on safety as well. After that, it's bouncing fun for the little ones for the next 6 hours or so. Is there a better way to work off all that sugar from cake? Even by the end of the party there are always a few adults in there jumping and rolling around like fools.
The couple that run it, used to work at Disneyland, which means they know and love kids and they know how important a bounce house is to a little kids birthday party. Their equipment looks well maintained and fairly new. They also give you their cell number, just in case anything goes wrong or you have questions. Although I have only rented a bounce house from them, they also provide face painting and balloon twisting. I'm sure they do a good job with that as well. Thanks OC Fun for yet again making my daughter's birthday memorable and we'll see you next year.
All the best,"

"Arely & Chris,
I cannot begin to tell you both how much I appreciate you interrupting your wedding anniversary to bring the Scooby Doo jumper to my sons 4th birthday. You are both unbelievable people!
I placed an order on-line with another company. I called the day of the party to confirm at 11:30am and found out they did not receive my order! My sons party was to start at 3:00pm and we didn't have the most important focal point of the party! I was in panic mode. I called OC Fun & you called me back within minutes telling me you had a Scooby Doo jumper & could be at my house by 1:30pm the same day!
Your dedication to your business is astounding. The fact that you would help a total stranger in a birthday party crisis speaks volumes about your character. I am overwhelmed by your generosity. This party was so important to me and I wanted everything to be perfect. You saved our party!
I wish you both the very best that life has to offer!
Thank you so much! "

"I just wanted to say "Thank You" for making my daughter's birthday so special. All the kids had such a great time; and the parents keep on complimenting me about having you there. You have no idea how many people have told me how nice and patient you were with their kids and even some parents said how much they enjoy talking to you; they said you were so nice and polite! I, once again, can't thank you enough for your services and I hope we can work together next year for my daughter's second birthday. God Bless and keep up the good work."
