Gemma and team,

 

 

Thank you for a wonderful animal handling session at Guildford Children’s Centre J

 

The animal handlers were brilliant, informative and friendly! The children especially enjoyed seeing the sweet ‘spiky’ hedgehogs, and stroking the soft rabbits and mice. Your parrot and meerkats kept everyone entertained!

 

It was a brilliant day and we had lots of positive feedback and smiles from all families and staff who attended… the whole animal handling experience was very much appreciated.

We would recommend Animal Magic in the future and hope to welcome you back again soon.

 

 

Thanks again and best wishes,

From all the staff at Guildford Children’s Centre J

Dear Lindsey,
Thank you so much for making my sister's hen party such a success. All the animals were so beautiful, fun to handle and interesting to learn about. It was also a pleasure meeting you and your daughter, Gemma.
Highlights include: the surprise snake entrance, really cute little hedgehogs, the beaded dragon clinging to the Bride-to-be's head, bunny therapy, crying with laugher while feeding the very energetic ducklings and meeting the mysterious Geoffrey ... to mention just a few! 
All the hens agree that having the Animal Magic come to the house made it a most unique and fun party. 
Thank you for everything, it was a hoot!
Yours sincerely, 

Helen and all the Hens

Hi Gemma

I just wanted to say thank you so much to you and your colleague for
showing us some of you amazing animals at Freya's party last Saturday.
It really was exciting to see and touch them all and also to learn
something about them. Who have had meerkats running all over them, seen
a sugarglider or touched a blue-tongued skink?  I have sent photos to
all the parents and they have been amazed at the animals you showed us
and that the girls were allowed to handle so many of them.

The party was a great success and we all absolutely loved it. We are
still talking about it. 

So thank you and all the best

 Hi Lyndsay

 
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful party you gave the girls last Sunday. We have some lovely memories to cherish.
 
Thank you to all your staff for their patience and to all your gorgeous animals. The gekkos gave us all a good laugh when they hopped around! 
 
The girls all had a fantastic time and really enjoyed learning about the animals and petting them.
 
Have a lovely Christmas (I would imagine you don't eat turkey?).
 
Kind regards
Herts

Hi Gemma.
 
So sorry for the delay in sending this but I wanted to write and say thank you so much for coming to Annies 2nd birthday on the 9th August. It was a truly magical morning and so many people commented about how much the children loved the animals, how calm and organized it was and how it was a such a great party. It was so impressive how you managed to keep 17 small children and over 20 adults occupied! The animals were so tame and friendly. You could tell how much you loved and looked after them. I wanted to keep Rocky the parrot!! :-) 
 
Thanks again. I will be recommending you to all my friends!
 
Best,

Hi Lindsey & Gemma

Just a quick email to say a massive thank you for the Animal Magic show that you put on at our daughters 5th birthday party on Saturday 16th Feb 2013. It went down really well, both the adults and the children loved it. Lindsey was fantastic with the children who were totally captivated. It takes a special skill to keep the attention of 19 five year olds ! Setting up and cleaning up at the end was nice and quick and had no impact on the party at all. Both my wife and I agreed that the show was worth every single penny. I’m sure it will also be talk of the playground when the children return to school after half term.

I would be glad to provide any of your future potential customers with a glowing review if ever you need one. Once again, thank you for making Jennys party so special.

Best Regards

James

 I just wanted to thank Gemma and Phil so much for making William's 7th Birthday Party such a success and a memorable occasion.  As 16 boys invaded my house and ran riot around the garden like wild monkeys, I really did feel Gemma would have her hands full. But she made it look like a complete breeze. Throughout the party Gemma kept 'the little monkeys' totally engrossed with all the 'weird and wonderful'. The array of exciting and exotic creatures occupying the kitchen really was quite remarkable. We even overheard the boys saying 'this is the best birthday party ever!!!' I have no doubt whatsoever in highly recommending Animal Magic.  So, very well done. Many many thanks from a Very Happy 7 Year Old, William and a very indebted mummy, Kathy. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Hi Lindsey,

I cannot thankyou enough for Gemma, Aaron and all the fantastic animals provided to make it such a special unique party.

 

 

I have had text messages and calls from the parents saying the children have not stopped taking about all the different types of animals and the facts that they also learnt too.

AMAZING, Gemma & Aaron were professional yet friendly and approachable.

Grandad is already recommending you to his friends.. Excellent and highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about having this type of party.

It was a total pleasure and joy to see the elation on my sons face when the van arrived!!

 

 

Thanks again

Hi Lindsey

 

Just wanted to write a quick email to thank you for jacks party on Saturday. 

The children haven't stopped talking about it since, think the adults were all overjoyed too!

 

You were very professional and knew your stuff! All the animals were beautiful and you could easily see how well they were taken care of and loved.

 

Tony the pony was a massive success! He was adorable!

 

I will definitely be recommending you to anyone that asks! 

I hope your business continues to grow and is a great success as it already is.

 

Many thanks again

Hello Lindsey, 

it is midnight now and I just finished cleaning up after the party and although I am very tired, I have to write this email.  

 

I THANK YOU for such a wonderful party!  It was so special, I feel very emotional about the whole thing, really.  Animals were lovely, well looked after and very good with all the children.  


However, the biggest THANK YOU goes to Steph and Sam, the handlers.  They were WONDERFUL, very helpful, answered every question with a big smile and a bucketful of knowledge and had all of the kids calm, in order, but still very interested and enthusiastic.  They were very patient with the kids and made Rianna a very happy birthday girl.  I took millions of pictures, it was so good - and will remind us of a very special day.  

 

I would definitely recommend your company to everyone, in fact, one of the Mums asked me for your website details, as she would like to book a party for her daughter in the future.  

 

Your 'very satisfied customer',

Katarina and family

Just wanted to write a thank you from all of us at Fun in Action. The animal show was a huge hit with the kids and adults alike! A special thank you to Gemma and her team for professional attitude and patience with our group. The animals are all very obviously loved and well cared for and this shows in their calm temperaments.

Thanks again, I will not hesitate to recommend Animal Magic to any group, the best party entertainment we have ever had.

Merry Christmas,

Samantha

 

 


Just to say thank you so much for yesterday, you were BRILLIANT!   So many people commented on what a good set up it was and you were both so great at including all the children.  We especially appreciated you taking the animals around to those kids who couldn't get to the tables easily and also how you staggered it, so that there was always a surprise around the corner.

I will always recommend you to anyone I speak to who is arranging a party like this, I honestly don't think you could have been any better for us!  Kitty had a great party and everyone who came had a good time - not so easy when the kids are so disabled.  She was on an inset day today, but is taking 96 photos in for 'news' tomorrow!!!!

Lots of love and gratitude

Dear Lindsey
Thank you so much for coming to our Holiday From Home - the ladies (and gentlemen) thoroughly enjoyed seeing and touching so many animals.  Watching their faces was an absolute joy!!!
Now I have to write it all up for the church magazine, with pictures, and none of us can remember the name of the animal we fed with a milk bottle... HELP!!!
Many thanks, and hopefully we will see you again soon

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you and Gemma so much for the
great party for Edie today. Both Edie and all her schoolfriends were
thrilled with it. Ollie and I were just looking at the pictures and
were feeling very pleased how it all went. I felt it was great that
each of the girls got their moment with the different animals and you
did exceptionally well keeping them so amused.

Thanks again, I'm sure Animal Magic is deservedly going from strength
to strength.

With all good wishes.

Dear Lindsey,

I just wanted so say a really big thank you for making Abigail's birthday party so special on Saturday.  Everyone, children and adults, loved all of your beautiful animals and you both made it really interesting and fun for the little ones.

Abigail has been talking non stop about the animals at nursery this week.  They have loved to see our photos of the day.  She has also been entertaining people telling them about mummy and the snake around her neck!

We will definitely recommend you and pass on your contact details to anyone who is looking for a special event.

Best wishes,

 

Emma

Dear Lindsey
 
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge "Thank you" to you for making Spike's party such a success.  Spike hasn't stopped telling everyone all about the amazing animals you brought along for the children to handle.
I was very impressed with the way you managed to hold the children's attention throughout the session and have full control of the animals at all times (Ellie the dog was amazing - we can't believe she didn't gobble even a mouse!).
 
Spike said his favourite part was Honey the python. I know he was rather daunted - I don't think he's ever seen a real live snake that size before.
 
So a huge thank you to you and your wonderful helper for making Spike's party a truly magical experience for everyone involved, both children and parents alike.  I wish you every success in the future, and I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone I know!
 
Kind regards
