Organizing a children's party can be quite a challenge if you've never done it before. Some parents are going to great lengths and the pressure is such that some parents would spend way too much money on a party for their child. Taking ten kids for a day out in an extremely busy theme park lasting 8 hours and giving ipods in their party bags (true story by the way!) may not be the most enjoyable way to celebrate your child's birthday!
You can take the stress out of a celebration by hiring a children's entertainer and renting a small hall near your home or by having the party in your home (if you have some space!). If you live in London you have a great choice of entertainers, magicians and clowns. How do you know who is the right entertainer for you and your child? Some clowns and entertainers may be more professional than others. There are some tired old entertainers out there!!
Toby has been performing for over eight years in London now. Many customers find me through recommendations (especially their children who may have seen me at their friends birthday).I would recommend you look at their reviews to ensure you will not be disappointed.
A good entertainer would be highly skilled in managing large or small groups of children. He/she should be funny and kind, not by saying toilet jokes and fooling around in a way that the children get out of control. A good magical entertainer should offer quality for children with magic that inspires the children's imagination and sense of humour.
Games played at parties should be inclusive and not elimination games (ie. musical chairs can leave some children feeling sad). Tricky Toby uses great music and games that include everyone and nobody gets eliminated. Choose the party music carefully too as there are some very rude pop songs around as well.
Remember to have a camera on hand to record those special moments (a group photo is a nice memory and you can send it out to all the parents) and don't forget a lighter for the birthday candles!
Toby will make every effort to fit in with your plans. For a children's entertainer in London who ticks all the boxes hire Tricky Toby.
