My first bit of advice to parents is as a parent myself and a kids entertainer – book the entertainer as soon as possible! It may seem like a given but you would be surprised at the number of potential clients I have to turn away because they waited too long either to initially call or call back after making contact. And the date may be available but the time to wish to start the entertainment might not be. So book the entertainer. Most of my business here at Kids Parties New York is from one mom letting another know how great the party puppet show was and that I am not made up or disguised in any way and – always on time if not early to arrive (but not too early as that can be awkward). So book the entertainer!
