We took our son to see a twisty balloon artist at the library last year. I was amazed at how thoroughly boring he managed to make it. There was lots of talking and music and setup. Very little actual ballon action. A room full of small children do not tolerate endless exposition very well. Get to the juice please. A 5 minute action packed show is far preferable to a meandering 45 minutes with 5 minutes of twisting sprinkled throughout.
