about Rami Salami:
Mr. Salami has a unique way of focusing attention on his young audience while including the grown-ups in on the fun. With the help of a very accurate water-squirting camera, rubber chicken, a Big Dig dog (it's a plastic rat! Ha! Ha!), and other silly props, he draws even the wariest of children into his magical circle of fun. A little barrier with colorful graphics and some mini stools keep the adults out, while giggling kids await their time with Rami.
Patient stool sitters are rewarded with the most elaborate balloon accessories you're likely to see. Humongous hats with interesting, inflatable baubles compliment the tiniest of noggins. During outdoor, uncontracted appearances, Rami requests a minimum $2 donation per creation. A small price to pay to see your child proudly sport a new chapeau.
Birthday Parties: The fun begins when Rami opens up his rolling suitcase full of props. After a bit of joking around, he plucks the guest of honor out of the group and creates the first silly hat of the party. Any one who wants a hat gets one!
The balloonery continues with the construction of a house, a spaceship, or a huge geodesic dome. If space permits, the sculpture is attached to the top of a telescoping pole and balanced on Rami's chin. A 10-minute comedy/magic show, and the singing of Rami's theme song, signal the end of the fun.
