We were so happy and pleased with Christina as Moana coming to our daughter's 4th birthday party. She came with authentic and traditional Polynesian outfits and props/ instruments and games to get the kids active like limbo and hula hoops for a contest.
The kids were mesmerized. Christina taught them Polynesian vocabulary words and dance moves and talked about Moana in the context of the culture. It was fantastic and just what we wanted.
She was kind and loving to all the children - there were 22 kids. The kids really believed they met the real Moana. She answered their questions as if she were Moana and told them stories about her life as Moana now. It was so perfect that she kept up the character the entire time and spent time answering the kids and talking with them.
My daughter was treated as the guest of honor and got to hold hei hei which she loved.
Moana stayed for the birthday song and celebration with cupcakes and even stayed after to take pictures with every kid or family that asked for one plus a group shot with all the kids.
The music was great and the light show at the end that is incorporated into an amazing dance was a must have grand finale.
I am still getting emails from parents that were in attendance that their child keeps talking about having met Moana and how awesome the party was.
I recommend Christina and believe that every child would love to have her as Moana at their party.
