OUR STORY

Amy & Dayton

We are Dabadooya and Company

We had a humble beginning in 2004 when the owner (Dayton) learned how to twist balloons with his grandfather.  While they didn't know how to do much, they learned that a simple balloon dog can bring a smile to anyone. 

In 2007, Dayton and his mother (Nikki) began to work for others in the industry providing balloon twisting and face painting.  They fell in love with the business, and decided to launch their own in 2008.  It soon became a family ordeal, with Nikki's husband learning to twist balloons and, later, Dayton's wife learning to paint.  

Over the years, our business evolved into the company it is now, serving the entire Stateline Area from Milwaukee, Madison, Rockford and Chicago (along with anyone in between).  We have since added many services to our company, and have been a part of HUNDREDS of celebrations.

When COVID-19 hit, we thought for sure that our doors would be closed forever.  Instead, we pivoted and were honored to be a beacon of hope in the Stateline Area.  We began offering contact-free deliveries in place of live entertainment.  As things begin to open back up, we are excited to get back to our humble beginnings, but also continue to offer the services we have provided this past year.

We believe that you cannot get a re-do on a special event.  That's why it is so important to get it right the first time.  Our goal is to create a quality atmosphere, provide engaging entertainment, and more than anything, to help make your event memorable.
