A lovely recommendation "We both thought you were excellent and kept the children entertained for the whole of the time you were there.  I liked that you gave the children name badges so you could easily address them.  The opening of the box was also a good idea, it really kept their interest wondering what was going to be in the box.  I liked all the songs that you did, the only thing I was surprised about was that you did not play any music, you just sang the songs yourself, I don't know how you keep your voice going!!  The entertainment was varied and  believe all the children enjoyed it and in fact quite a lot of the adults too.  Megan still talks about it and wants to know when she is having another party for all her friends to come to.  I have and will continue to recommend you to other parents.  Kind regards Louise Thom" Megan celebrated her 3rd birthday in Castle Donington on 9th November 2014

Archie (age 5) and 30 of his friends had a wonderful time!

Fantastic feedback from our Playmates Party for a little girl celebrating her 3rd birthday in Derby during August 2013 and her Mum is already planning next year . ‘Thank you so much for Isla's 3rd Birthday party; it was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. As the children arrived you managed to engage them straight away with games and toys and then the singing started and it was wonderful! I think at times Isla was overwhelmed by the wonder of it all and that it was all for her.
The party was well organised, well planned (taking into account Isla's favourite songs) and well structured with smooth changeovers from activity to song. Again, after the break for party tea, there was an engaging activity that everyone could get involved with (and gave time for everyone to finish their tea)
You dealt effectively with those children who wanted to take over and also those children who were feeling a little bit shy -  everyone was involved parents (and grandparents) and children alike.  We went on holiday two days after the party and Isla was singing 'Nip nap Jabberjack' all around the pool. :)
Thank you Karen it was a marvellous two hours and worth ever penny!  And I wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone!  See you soon - Isla's party next year! ;)’ Party was held in August 2013

Another happy customer singing the praises of Karen as she delivers a perfect party for a 4 year old birthday girl and friends at home in Chellason "I recently booked Karen at very short notice for my Daughter's 4th Birthday party at home. I have to say she was absolutely fantastic. We have never really had any experience of a children’s entertainer ourselves but she was able to keep everyone entertained for the 2 hours and the children were all involved, really loved the activities as well as the on looking adults. I cannot sing her praises enough and will definitely be utilising her services again in the future. So if you are organising a party please book Karen, definitely brings another dimension to any party." Parminder and 4 year old daughter had her party in August 2013.

Calm and professional approach ensures 6 year old party is ‘best ever’ in Lockington "Apart from the mix up with the village hall booking (which was apparently the fault of the ballet instructor who had not booked it at all) we were really impressed with the party. The children loved it and were oblivious to the mix up. You handled it really well and I thank you for your calmness and professionalism. It helped me a lot. Full marks for keeping the children entertained. It was appropriately paced and great fun. Erin said it was the best party she'd ever been to!! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone planning a party.Thank you so much.“ Kate and Erin aged 6

One hour party big hit with 3 year old birthday boy and friends in Mickleover ‘We had a Jabberjacks party for our son’s third birthday party.
