Flash Twinkle Toes
Skills: Diabolo, plate spinning, puppetry, stilt walking, juggling, contact juggling, unicycling, ballooning, fire eating, pocket magic
Flash is a very experienced children’s entertainer with a very silly streak. Though highly skilled in many circus arts, Flash just can’t seem to get things right and often needs some little helping hands to get things back on track. With comedy routines in diabolo, puppetry, plate spinning, contact juggling (crystals), magic, juggling and more Flash has a fun repertoire that will have everyone in stitches.
Flash’s puppet friends:
‘Vern the Bird’*: Vern is a lovable, cheeky and mischievous bird. Children love to pat her, stroke her beautiful feathers and tickle her under the chin. *Vern is an Axtel Puppet
‘Ikis the Crystal Charming Snake’: Ikis prides himself on being a very realistic puppet snake that has the ability to charm and manipulate crystal balls. Ikis loves a hug from the bold at heart but is also happy to be watched and amaze people with his wondrous skills.
*Available as a stilt walking character "Flash on Stilts" on request.
* Available as a stage show, please see 'Flash Twinkle Toes Silly Circus Show' for details.
“Full-time performer Flash Twinkle Toes stepped out in the street for his folkie debut and was an instant winner with the younger crowd”

(Review of Port Fairy Folk Festival)
“Alessia and I were extremely happy with "Flash Twinkle Toes"- he was a tremendous addition to the occasion, (our daughter Ella's 5th birthday). It was great to see the looks of delight/surprise on the faces of Ella's little friends throughout the performance, and I know both our daughters, their friends and the parents who were there enjoyed the show immensely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Flash to any of our friends.
