Do you have a play space or do you travel to us?
We are NOT a party place but we DO travel anywhere in the New York Tri-State area.
What exactly does your Kids Puppet Show include?
Our Children’s Birthday Puppet Show is less ‘quiet story time’ with
puppets and more a loose structured rescue theme designed to have the
kids laughing, singing along and participating with as many puppets as
we can bring out. The Puppet Show is made up of skits, sing-a-longs,
gags, rescues and a few surprises!
How long is the Puppet Show?
Our Kids Puppet Show runs about 45 minutes and you’ll be amazed that
the kids are sitting in one spot for so long. And not just sitting – but
laughing, singing along and having the time of their lives!
What about the younger kids?
Younger kids attention span is limited for any extended period, so we don’t expect them to sit for a 45 minute Puppet Show. So for the littler kids (1’s and 2’s) we do what we would do in a ‘formal’ puppet show but individually or in small groups. The wee ones are treated gently and with the care and watchful eye of a parent.
What kind of puppets do you use and is it just one person?
Yes, just one Kids Parties New York children’s puppeteer would handle
the needs of your event, unless of course if it’s a block party or
company picnic where you might need two children’s entertainers. The
puppets themselves are all hand puppets, most of which were hand crafted
by us here at Kids Parties New York
What puppets do you use?
We combine a great mix of Kids Party Puppet originals and Favorite
Characters from film and TV. We’re talking Superheroes, Princesses,
Dinosaurs, Kings and Queens, Dragons, Pirates, Jungle Animals, Aliens
and lots more!
What about Special Needs Kids?
Special needs kids just need a little more attention and care but not
be treated “differently”. That’s actually our specialty, having
entertained at many special needs schools in the New York Tri-State
area. We actually welcome the opportunity to share the wonder and magic
of puppets with our special children.
Where do you travel to?
Kids Parties New York travels to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The
Bronx and Staten Island and also Long Island, Westchester, Connecticut
and New Jersey.
Is a Puppet Show the appropriate kind of entertainment for a mixed age group?
A Puppet Show is always appropriate because kids just love puppets. And the kids are actually sitting in one spot for over 45 minutes and not running around bumping into each other. Never a worry the kids might be frightened like other types of children’s entertainment and there is something for both girls and boys. A variety of puppets in the show like pirates, dinosaurs, princesses, jungle animals, a wacky monster or two and Favorite Characters from film and TV guarantees the kid’s participation as several themes are featured all in one show. So if your kids love dinosaurs, they will also get dinosaurs, pirates, superheroes and more.
