When is the best time for you to arrive at my event?
This depends on the activities that we will be performing and how the party will be structured. Upon booking your event, we will discuss the best arrival time to suit your needs.
What areas do you travel to?
Most of the Sydney metro area however if you are located more than 45 km from the Sydney CBD, you will be charged a small travel fee.

How much room do you need?
Face and Body Art needs a 3m x 3m space. Balloon Twisting requires a comfortable area for both the artist and children, without shrubs encroaching on the area. Games and movement require as much space as possible – this will depend on the games we play and the number of children attending. We can adjust to small areas and play games that are suitable. Craft needs a trestle table for children to stand around.
My child is afraid of costume characters, How do you deal with this issue?
Our costumes are child friendly and we avoid using too much face paint that disguises our natural features. All entertainers from Functions of Fun are trained by our owner, Daniela Zepeda, who is an early childhood teacher. We are experienced in dealing with various situations and will do our very best to make the child comfortable and at ease.
Do we need to provide anything for you?

If we want to play a game you don't provide, is it possible?
Yes, if there is time. This may occur before or after we arrive or during the last few faces to be painted.
Can you provide characters upon request?
We have a variety of characters available. Please contact us on 0417 331 889 to discuss your requirements.
