were captivated throughout the whole show.
Everyone (children and
adults) felt totally involved. Made our job so much easier.
Wizzi Wizard is by far the best that we have seen.
I would not consider using any other entertainer other
than Wizzi Wizard. We have seen him four times now and his shows
have been different every time. The man is a genius with

Have your Party at Home
If your living space is really too small to accommodate a party consider using a parent's or friend’s house but please make it clear that you'll do all the work of setting up and cleaning afterwards.
In summer, weather permitting, consider your garden space – less tidying up and no worries about spills on your favourite carpet. Mr Giggles recommends parties at home especially for the very young children of four years and under.
hire a hall then church halls, guide / scouts halls, golf / bowling / tennis clubhouses are all
inexpensive and usually have the advantage of having a kitchen for
catering. Also ask around in libraries for local meeting places such as
council halls and clubhouses which are often much less expensive than hotels
Fewer friends invited also means less space
required and makes it easier to organise. Limit yourself to a fixed number
of guests and keep to your number.
Bake and decorate the birthday cake yourself and have your child help for that “quality” time together. Moreover choosing a mid-morning or afternoon time slot, which is the norm for parties and your expense is limited to cake, snacks, juice, and goody bags.
you do please don’t offer a big choice and don’t offer too much food. The
birthday guests are very exited and not starving so there could be a lot of
If you wish to
include food for the adults think vegetarian, Italian, or both. A huge pan of lasagne or
pasta bake is easy to make and costs little per serving. Add a salad,
bread, a large party carton of inexpensive wine, and the adults will love
this simple food which is both tasty and healthy.
If your child really must have
party ware or whatever then many parents have found
Party Box prices are keen and
the quality very good. Also you don’t have to go overboard on a theme. A
Pirate tablecloth that looks like a pirate map is enough to satisfy the most
blood thirsty pirate. You don’t
need matching plates, napkins, and cups. On the other hand it
is not much more expensive to go for a theme “pack” which includes all items
at discounted prices. Again
Party Box is the best I know.
A really cool idea is to use a Polaroid camera and snap fun photos
of each child then let the children decorate the borders and take them home
as a keepsake. This helps differentiate you child’s birthday making it all
the more memorable.
general rule is more help rather than less. It really will give you much
peace of mind and your friends will appreciate your help when it is their
turn to have a party.
When they reach school age your child’s circle of friends
will grow massively. However only share parties if you have lots of
helpers as lots of children can be unruly as the kids feed of each other’s
energy levels and noise and excitement can be very high. You have been
However please be very careful. I would recommend that you only do this the very young children as today’s kids are more sophisticated and are used to professional quality entertainment.
If outdoors, create a theme carnival atmosphere with a beanbag toss, egg and spoon race and maybe a sack race. Treasure hunts are always a big hit both indoors as well as outdoors. Keep it simple and hide a number of small inexpensive items such as sweets, some easy to find for younger children and some harder for the older children. If doing a pirate theme party. Give the kids a Pirate Map to fire their imagination and have the main “treasure” hidden somewhere special and the children have to follow the clues to find it. They'll love pretending they're pirates hunting for buried gold.
Perhaps you feel that you do not have the personality to entertain children but would still like entertainment to make the day memorable. Consider networking with others in your parents/toddlers group. Do you know anyone who juggles or has a flair for face painting?
Look at the Party
Through the Eyes of your Child
The experience of planning a party with your child is often full of unexpected joys and surprises and is a wonderful way to show your child how unique and important he/she is. I hope you’ll try this approach to build these all important birthday memories.
Hire a Professional Party Entertainer
Here’s why. A good professional children’s party entertainer has a lot of knowledge about organising parties. He knows what works what doesn’t and he knows where savings can be made and where it is better not to skimp. He knows what halls are good and those to avoid. Use his knowledge, be guided by him and not only will you have a great party but more importantly you will have no worries or stress. It has to be said that this is probably the last area you would want to cut costs especially as the one aspect of parties that children always remember is the fun and laughter that a good professional children’s party entertainer brings. This is way above having the biggest venue or best food.
