Princess Characters for a Birthday Party
I am thinking about hiring an entertainer from magicprincess.com in the Bay Area
for my daughter's 4th birthday party in our home. Has anyone used them and had a
good or bad experience they would like to share? Were they good and entertaining
for 4 year olds (both girls and boys)? Reliable and pleasant? Worth the money
($169 for 1 1/2 hours)? I would really appreciate your comments! Judy
We hired the magic princess people for my daughter's recent 4th
birthday party. I would give it an unenthusiastic mixed review.
It was ok but not as magical as they appeared in our
communication before the party. Maybe it was just the
entertainer we got but she seemed pretty inexperienced,
overwhelmed, managed time badly, lukewarm. Nevertheless, all the
children seemed to enjoy it.
We are two moms who have completely given in to our 2-year-
old's obsession with Disney princesses. We are looking for an
entertainer who can come to our house for her 3rd birthday
party, dressed as Snow White (or Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty
or Jasmine or . . . ) and provide some entertainment, like face
painting, balloon art or the like. I've searched the archives
but haven't found anything specifically about Disney
princesses. We were at the playground the other day and
someone had Cinderella at their party and our daughter was
completely awestruck! I've seen several ads in Parents Press,
but would like a recommendation if someone found a princess
they liked, or a warning if someone used an entertainer that we
should stay away from.
We hired someone from the Magic Princess last year for our
daughter's birthday party and they were wonderful! Here is
their website: http://www.magicprincess.com/index.html
Our daughter turned 4 and her entire preschool class was at our
home. We opted for a clown and the kids ADORED her! She did a
little magic show with them and really engaged all the
children. I believe that we had hired her for 1 1/2 hrs, so
when there was time left, she sang songs with them in the back
yard. After that I took pictures of each child with her and
enclosed that in the thank-you cards that I sent later. Some of
the kids still talk about this party. She made them do ''magic''
and they really believed that they were doing it.
They were reasonably priced (believe I paid $120 + a tip) and
it was a huge hit!
I checked their website and saw several princesses that are
probably exactly what you are looking for, but they are not
affiliated with Disney, so they can't call them by their actual
name. For example: Snow White is the Snow Princess.
We just had a princess come to my 6 year old's party from Firepixie
(www.firepixie.com). They had many different Disney princesses to
choose from (we
got Cinderella), and she did some magic tricks, made a balloon animal
for my daughter
and did some wonderful face painting on all the kids. My daughter was
thrilled and all
of the kids had a lot of fun, so I would definitely recommend them.
Another mom of a princess girl
Definitely check out Firepixie Entertainment (Firepixie.com). They
are the BEST.
Erin was Sleeping Beauty (the best princess because she has a pink
case you were wondering) for my daughter's 4th birthday party. She
magic, balloons, tea party, brought out the cake, etc. and didn't miss
when my daughter mentioned that she had met her at Disneyland two
earlier. :) Not the cheapest but by far the best I've seen. We did
the party at
Fairyland and she met us there so very flexible as well. It's hard
to give into
the princess thing, I know but it is actually quite fun to go through
it as an
adult (just don't tell anybody I said so!). Have fun and enjoy all
pink and purple while you can.
We just had ''Ariel'' back for a second time for my daughter's 6th
birthday party (first time was when my daughter turned four).
Be sure to ask for Erin. She did a magic show, tea party and
twisted balloons into every conceivable animal for 20
kindergarten girls. Worth every penny and a huge relief to know
that she was taking care of all party activities.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions!
