Nadine was very patient with the kids. Session was informative as well as fun. I received emails from parents next day telling me how kids enjoyed and overall it was a great event. Thanks Nadine for your services...
Highly recommended..... for kids under 8 years.
Response from Nadine's Animal Friends:
Thank you for the wonderful feedback Disha, and for choosing us to help celebrate your daughter's birthday!
We had a dinosaur themed party for my son's 6th birthday. Deciding that a reptile show would be great entertainment, I was thrilled to find Nadine's Animal Friends! Nadine and her assistant were prompt, friendly and very patient with the children. All the children had the opportunity to pet & or have the reptile placed on their arm, torso etc. My son was thrilled!! The last reptile was a 5 foot snake. All the children put the snake around their necks (great photo op) and even the adults got in on the action too! The next day my son asked me when he could have another reptile show. I would and have already recommended Nadine to anyone looking for a reptile show.
Response from Nadine's Animal Friends:
Thanks so much Myra, it was my pleasure to work with you. I'm so glad that the children enjoyed the program, it was certainly fun for us too!
Nadine and her animal friends were an absolute hit at my daughter's birthday party! She was incredibly friendly and entertaining and provided a fun and educational experience to the kids (and parents!). The animals were terrific and the kids squealed in delight every time they saw them. Highly highly recommend!
Nadine was so amazing , she was so great with all the children . I had her come for my son's first birthday party and she was great with him and all the children at the party from babies to toddlers to kids and adults she stole the show. The kids had fun while getting to learn at the same time , it was all around an amazing addition to the party. The kids are still talking about it and was definitely the party of the year. The kids and adults loved the animals and they were so happy they got to hold and play with them all. I highly recommend her and I'm glad I got the pleasure of her services to make my son's first birthday the most memorable of all. Thanks Nadine !!
Absolutely loved having Nadine for my son's first birthday party. She is just lovely; so caring and passionate about the animals, and so gentle and loving with the kids. The kids loved her and the animals. I was so impressed at the variety of animals she brought over and her knowledge. I will make sure to have her come out again!
Nadine and her "friends" were the perfect special surprise for our daughter's 3rd birthday party! Nadine does a great job of engaging kids with her friendly and enthusiastic personality, and she knows exactly what will capture their interest. She brought a mix of critters, some more familiar to little kids (a bunny) and some much more exotic. She shared just the right amount of information about each animal with the kids, and was more than happy to answer questions from both the kids and the adults. Actually, the adults at the party enjoyed Nadine and the animals at least as much as the kids did! Arranging Nadine's visit was very easy and hassle-free. She clearly loves what she does and it shows!
Nadine came to our home to celebrate my son's birthday. It was an awesome experience for my son and his friends! She was informative and kept the interst of the kids the entire time while educating them. I completely recomend this program with all my heart. It was a great experience.
Nadine & her animals were totally awesome. We had kids ranging from 1.5-10 and every age between and every last one of them was totally engaged and loving the show. Nadine was great with the kids and we really enjoyed having her. My sister will be booking her for my nieces party in 2mo's. She was great!
Nadine was amazing! She kept the attention and control of a group of 15 young boys. The animals were really interesting and unique. Most importantly, my son thought it was the coolest party ever!
Nadine's animals were a wonderful addition to our party. Nadene made sure everyone had a chance to pet the cuddly ones and the slimy ones, too! The children had great fun with "Monty (the) python)" and we got many nice pictures of Monty as a neck scarf : ). Nadene spoke loudly enough for the back row and had a good rapport with all the ages at our party. We look forward to having her back again!
Nadine and her animals were great! My son loves animals of all kinds, and even though he was shy and did not want to touch all the animals, he loved every minute of his party. His friends, some who were a little less shy, loved touching the animals. Nadine was great with the kids - very patient...especially with a group of 4-7 year olds...and even a 3 year old! Nadine was full of information, and I would totally recommend her to anyone.
Nadine is amazing. She came with her animal friends to our son's 6th birthday and she engaged, educated, and entertained all the children young and old. She had a great amount of knowledge and a terrific way of sharing it. The kids all touched and learned and thrilled at the experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Nadine's Animal Friends. She was professional and buttoned up from start to finish and a pleasure to work with.
Nadine came to our house for our son's 6th birthday party. She had a very well organized and interesting animal display. Of course the snake "Monty" was a huge hit, but all the animals were really cool for the kids. I would definitely recommend Nadine!
