SO, What about Coulrophobia?
(the Fear of Clowns)

Jimbo realizes that not everyone loves clowns. In any group of kids, there may be one or two that aren't sure about him at first. Is this Coulrophobia? probably not, but just the same, Jimbo will do his best to minimize the child's (or adult's) fear.

Jimbo will not approach any child that looks afraid, but will instead turn his attention to the other kids in hope that the child soon realizes for himself that Jimbo is not to be feared. With young parties, Jimbo will spend most of the party sitting on the floor, so as not to tower over the children. Later, Jimbo may try to engage the child with juggling balls or balloons. In many cases, most children just need some time to warm up to the stranger in their home.

Adults are different. Jimbo will simply avoid any contact understanding that Coulrophobia is a recognized phobia and there isn't much I can do to change a lifetime fear.



Equally comfortable in you home Birthday party or larger commercial venues, Jimbo now offers three (3)  Birthday Party packages for children under 10 and two new parties over the age of 10. Jimbo will customize any plan to fit your schedule & price range. Available options make your party truely unique. Commercial pricing is available for School, Church or any public event.
