Most common Questions asked

    With so many children's entertainers about you really want to make sure that you choose the best one for your event and so I have compiled a list of some of the main questions that I am often asked to save you time in your search for a good children's entertainer and full party organiser

Q What do you do ?

A This is by far the most asked question of any magician or children's entertainer, after all you want to know what you will get for your money.  The basic magic show is just that .  You get a magic show and balloon modelling for the children, this is usually a 1 hour show.  The other option is a full party package which is the magic, balloon modelling, party music, bubble machine, party games, prizes, lots of giveaways and more.

Q What are the prices you charge.

A These can be found on the prices page

Q How long is the full party package ?

A The full party package is just that, for the whole party - usually a birthday party lasts about 2 hours.

Q What sort of music do you play for the children ?

A The music is popular party music for children and is played at the start whilst I am setting up so that any children arriving early at the party will have something to do before I start.

Q What time do I need to sort the party food for ?

A A rough guide is halfway through the party with a 2 hour party option or beforehand with the 1 hour option.

Q What are the prizes and giveaways, are they just cheap sweets ?

A I do not give sweets or similar items as prizes or giveaways.  I also do not use sweets or similar items in party bags .  All items are quality toys and novelty gifts ideal for children of all ages.  Some samples can be seen on the party prices page.

Q We are on a tight budget and we have found someone cheaper, will you come down in price ?

A We fully realise that times are hard but cheaper is not always better.  I am a very busy children's entertainer and the price I charge reflects on what you get which is value for money.  Not only with the whole show package but the party bags too.  We will always listen and will be able to suit a package to your budget if required, just ask.

Q OK. I am convinced, I have read all your pages on your website, how do I make a booking ?

A Firstly, select the party package you’re interested in and either submit an online enquiry or give us a call.  You can call me on Derby 01332 768321 or use the contact form to check initially if a certain date and time is available.

Q How far ahead should I book you ?

A In general as soon as you cansos you will have more chance of the date being available especially at busy times of the year.

Q I have a question that isn't on here.

The right choice for Children's Party entertainment

     Celebrating children's birthdays can be as fun and entertaining for parents as it is for their children. Birthday cakes, balloons and themes are generally popular at children's parties, and parents have the opportunity to mix and mingle with the parents of their children's friends.

     Party bags are a must at children's birthday parties. To create a party bag, simply pick up some bags at a local party-supply store and fill them with things that they will enjoy.  You can find small toys that are suitable and even colouring books and crayons, bubbles and any other small items that will fit into a bag.  If you are stuck for ideas then party bags can be purchased from our party bag page.

     Plates, cups and banners are one of the easiest ways to create the overall party atmosphere

You can find them with cartoon characters, or even just those that are a solid color. These can

help keep the theme going in your party as well as offer extra decorations. Traditional party banners add colour to your party.

     As an alternative you don't need to splash out on table covers if you don't want to.  In most cases these just get thrown away at the end of the party so why not do something different.  Here is one idea.  You can pick up very cheaply plain white paper table covers.  These can usually be found in the pound shops or similar.  Use these to cover the tables and then simply put out packs of crayons on the table so that as the children are eating they can draw on the table cloth..  This idea has been used numerous times by parents and it is not only different for your party but also keeps the cost down too.  If you cannot find small cheap packs of crayons then we can supply these.  They are sometimes included in party bags but if you require them for this then simply send us an email or let us know at the time of booking and how many packs you require and we will bring some along on the day FREE of charge, just let us know that you need some for this idea.

    Pinatas are also another good source for party supplies. These can be along the same theme of the party if you have chosen one. Many children love having these and they make a great activity in addition to offering you another party decoration.

    Games are also something children look forward to at parties.  A good Children's Entertainer

will provide these along with the prizes. Children always enjoy games and they add a little more festivity to the day.

      Invitations can be used effectively to create a party atmosphere and should not be overlooked.

It lets people know where and when the party is.  Don't forget balloons since they can add colour.

If you are after table decorations a ballon modeller can make these for you.  Streamers are still one of these easiest things to use for a decoration, and can make it look like a party.

     The birthday cake is just as important as any other part of the party. Many birthday cakes

are decorated as a character  and the type and style of the cake is important to many children.

What goes on top of them is equally as important, sometimes they will include small toys for the birthday child to enjoy as an extra little gift.

     Picking the right entertainer for your child's Birthday Party is the key to a successful party.  The cake on it's own won't make a great party, nor will the food or magic show, not even the games on their own.  Think about a party that you have attended in the past.  Was it a great party and why ?. The real answer to a great party is a combination of everything from the food to the magic show to the games and the core ingredient to all of that is the right children's entertainer.

Have a look at the prices page to see what we can offer.
