Awesome entertainment

I can't begin to say how great my experience with this company has been. The bounce house was awesome and everyone enjoyed it tremendously. On top of that the balloon twister interacted wonderfully with the kids. Exceptional customer service and employees. Thanks for making my girls birthday so memorable.

Awesome!!

I love party people rental!! They were very professional and provided quality services at reasonable prices. The characters interact with my guests, the painting artist painted different characters on every child face, snow cone were delicious with different favors, and cotton was a hit. I would recommend this company because they are truly dedicated and they went way beyond my expectation. If you are having a party pick party people rental, they are the best!!

AWESOME! AWESOME!! AWESOME!!!

PROFESSIONAL, COURTEOUS, PROMPT, DEDICATED HARDWORKERS!! If you need face painters, or mascots/characters, or a party or event you may be organizing, Party People Rentals is a one stop shop that will leave you very pleased with the service and pricing! Please Give them a try. I recently hired them to paint faces and bring the mascots spongebob, patrick and dora to a picnic in the Norfolk ZOO for about 2000 people, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. The facepainters were so dedicated, that they stayed overtime to be sure they finished every child in the line. I was very impressed with the dedication professionalism and realistic charater quality. AND THE PRICE! Was the best around, and trust me I did my homework.. Party People Rentals is the only name you need for facepainting and mascots! I would hire them again, and refer them to anyone who has a need for these two services!

Bauer Family Luau

What an amazing experience our company had with Party People Rentals! Our Luau would not have turned out as fun and amazing without the bounce house and face painters. The attendant for the bounce house (Lafayette) was absolutely wonderful and friendly! The face painters were great and creative artist too! We look forward to working with Party People Rentals in the future.

Working with Party People was a great experience.

The experience with Party People was wonderful from the time I called to place an order until the time the character left my home. I ordered a Minnie Mouse for a 2 year old's birthday party. Minnie's costume was beautiful. She was enegetic and very good with the kids. She came with another person from Party People who took care of the music and told us the songs we were going to sing and the games we were going to play. There was plenty of time for pictures. Everyone was a professional! I highly recommend Party People.

Toddler Birthday Party Entertainment Solution!

We contracted to have Buzz LightYear attend our son's third birthday party in a home setting with approximately 40 guests. From ages 2 to 7 for kids and adults, everyone was thoroughly entertained with the songs, dancing, and entertaining. Kelli, the organizer, was great to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend you shop no further in planning your next character entertainment. I did the leg work and am grateful I landed with them. You won't be disappointed.

Party People Rental rocks!

I am one of the Youth Coordinators at the Holy Light Church, Portsmouth, VA. We have rented several items from Party People Rentals in 2011 such as the bubble machine and several inflatable games. What a hit it was for the children and adults! At our Harvest Festival last year, we rented the bounce house, cotton candy and two characters: Hello Kitty & Woody (Toy Story). The children didn't know about this and what a surprise it was! All the adults were just as excited too. They played games with them and photos with the characters were taken. The Party People Rentals are quality items and the staff are so professional and work with children very well. We are looking forward to having Party People Rentals again this year.

Made sure to accomodate request

They really worked hard to find someone to fill the Bat Guy request. They were timely. The handler was organized and adaptable. The character interacted nicely. We didn't know the character would not be speaking. And the costume was different than I expected, I should of gotten a picture first.

2 year old Cat in the Hat Birthday party!

I hired Party People Rentals for a joint 2 year old Dr. Seuss party. We had the Cat and the Hat and a face painter. The Party people were very kind, and encouraged everyone to participate. They were very understanding my child refused to participate. Even with uncooperative children we still had a great time and I got great photos. The face painter did an excellent job with all of the children. She was kind and patient and did a very detailed job. I would hire this company again in the future.

I used this company this pass Saturday and they were so awesome. The enter action with the kid was so great and professional. I couldn't have had it any other way. They were on time and ready to go. I didn't even know they were there until it was time to go on. Everything was so good. I really give this company five stars. I also rented snow cones and cotton candy machine they showed us how to maintain it and everything was perfect. The kids loved everything and we were all satisfied. Thanks Party People Rentals. I will recommend and use you again.

Doc McStuffin was truly a special treat for our guest. she was able to get the kids going, once out of the heat (lol). The birthday girl enjoyed her presence and the bubbles she brought with her. For the first time my son who is usually scared of characters was able to pose for pictures and feel welcomed as she looked like a big dress up play doll. I recommend for any kids party

Great Balloon Twister

A Party People Balloon Twister came out to work a preschool event. She did an excellent job. She had plenty of supplies. She made whatever the children wanted. Even when balloons popped she happily made them a second balloon. She did not rest at all during the 2 hours she was there and was always smiling.

Awesome Experience

I booked a Pony/ Petting Zoo party for my 8 year old. The Booking of the event was Stress FREE! She accommodated my every need. When they arrived; he set up swiftly with smiles. He was so patient with the children getting on and off. Laughed and made jokes with the kids, parents and the ponies. It was such a great experience. After it was over he scooped the poop and left. The following day; I recieved a call to make sure I was pleased. You dont get this type of experience with all events. I will tell a friend about Party People! GREAT GREAT GREAT!

Never use this company !

I book this company for my daughter's birthday party and I gave them a deposit on a character a couple of day later I get a e-mail they don't have that character available ! So they refunded my deposit that was fine. The next week they call and say they have another character that great I though so I gave them another deposit. The night before my child's party I get another e-mail saying sorry but no character. I'm so feed up with this company. I will never use this company ever again.
