Brooklyn Balloon Company founder Robert Moy lives with his wife and 6 year old son in Brooklyn. After earning a BS in Communications at Boston University, he worked briefly in graphic design, furniture/lighting design and photography before moving to New York City to study jewelry design at FIT. He designed for Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole and Anne Klein, as well as a successful line of fashion fine jewelry which sold in high end stores internationally.
Balloon twisting is this father's new-found profession. His role as a father has stoked his interest in twisting, and after a few impromptu performances at parties of friends and relatives, he was urged to start a business and share his talents with a wider audience. "I found that there's a demand for balloon craft that's modern, fresh and cool."
With his background in fashion, art and design and his impeccable craft, Robert creates balloon sculptures that amuse and fascinate kids - and adults. He can make anything in balloons - from miniature cars, wearable butterfly wings, to giant balloon sculptures for visual display and events. Robert is a natural entertainer, loves playing with kids of all ages and knows how to keep them amazed. His evocative designs are intended to encourage creative and cooperative play. We are proud to also offer balloon magic to the entertainment package and will soon offer kids balloon and magic workshops.
Our decorating for party, event, wedding or display include floor to ceiling balloon centerpieces, large scale balloon sculptures, twisted helium balloons inside of a balloon and giant specialty helium balloons with ribbon combinations of tulle, organza, grosgrain and satin. Giant helium balloons are specially treated to last up to 4 weeks.
Brooklyn Balloon Company is committed to eco-friendly practices. All balloons are made of all natural, biodegradable latex rubber. We believe in giving back to the community by volunteering for events at NYC public schools and non profits like Red Cross and the Center for Domestic Violence.
Brooklyn Balloon Company is New York Magazine's Best of NY Kids Entertainment 2013.
